Sony Xperia Z1 mini clears FCC certification, switches Z1s name for ‘Amami’
A few software version numbers, namely build numbers 14.2.A.0.144 and 14.2.A.0.78, suggest the Sony ‘Amami’ will come with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean on board and not the latest 4.4 KitKat version. We still would not count those references as hard proof as Sony could change things and let’s remind you that an FCC filing is no promise for an actual product launch, it’s just a step in a regulatory process.
If, though, Sony is to indeed unveil the much anticipated ‘Amami’ or Xperia Z1s, or Xperia Z1 mini, the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas and Sony’s January 6th presentation seem like a perfectly fitting occasion. Here’s to hoping.
