That name is confirmed in a photograph showing mockups of Sony's three flagship models. We have the current Android flagship, the Sony Xperia Z, the 6.4 inch phablet called the Sony Xperia Z Ultra, and the third model looks like the phone we called the Sony i1 Honami, except that is has a different name on the screen, the Sony Xperia Z1.
T-Mobile currently offers the Sony Xperia Z in the U.S. It should be interesting to see if sales of that model are strong enough for the mobile operator to consider bringing a carrier branded Sony Xperia Z1 to the states, if given the opportunity. As it stands, the Sony Xperia Z1 could be in for some competition in Asia from Oppo as the quirky Chinese manufacturer is expected to launch its own camera-centric Oppo N1 on September 23rd. With a 20.7 MP rear-facing camera on the Xperia Z1, Sony will be looking to compete against the Nokia Lumia 1020 and the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom.
