Android 4.4.4 pushed out for the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact

Sony certainly knew the difference between making a "mini" version, and making a "compact" version of a flagship model. The Sony Xperia Z1 Compact might have a smaller screen than the Sony Xperia Z1 (4.3 inches vs. 5 inches), a lower resolution display (720 x 1280 vs. 1080 x 1920) and a lower capacity battery (2300mAh vs. 3000mAh). It also has a plastic back, but everything else remains the same.

Both models are powered by a quad-core 2.2GHz Snapdragon 800 CPU, Adreno 330 GPU and both feature 2GB of RAM. The pair are both equipped with a 20.7MP rear-facing camera. Ironically, those who have compared the full-sized model and the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact will tell you, that in the three areas where the specs are different, the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact beats its Big Brother. The Xperia Z1 Compact is said to have a better screen with colors that are true to life and are not washed out. And the battery has actually lasted longer on the smaller phone.

Now, we can tell you that the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact is being updated to Android 4.4.4 in Russia, Italy and Indonesia. The build number is 14.4.A.0.108.. Unfortunately, no changelist has been issued yet, but if we should happen to come across it, we will pass it along to you. If you happen to own an updated model, you can pass along any changes you've discovered, in the box below.

Thanks for the tip, Prannoy!
