One of our loyal readers managed to obtain some pictures of the Xperia Z1, which he took after having the opportunity of playing with it. In his own words, he tells us that the screen is "punchy" like the Sony Xperia Z Ultra and that 20.7MP camera is better than the rear shooters on the Apple iPhone 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom.
Our source also says that even with the handset running an early version of the firmware, it runs better than the average phone. Lastly, while our tipster says that the Sony Xperia Z1 doesn't look good in press shots, in person it is a different matter.
The countdown to Wednesday continues.
Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!
