Description

All the great things we were hearing about the mini version of the Xperia Z1 heading for the international markets, turned out true. Dubbed xperia Z1 Compact, it is much, much smaller than the Z1, as it carries a 4.3" 720p display, but keeps the same outstanding set of specs, most importantly the same 20 MP camera module with Sony's G Lens set.
