Sony announcing Xperia Z1 compact

Xperia Z1 compact

Sony is announcing the Xperia Z1 Compact, which actually sounds amazing if you’re into smaller phones. It’s got basically all of the goodness of the Z1S—same camera, same Snapdragon 800, same IP55/58 rating—but it’s just got a 4.3-inch screen. It will be available globally in February in four different colors: White, black, lime, and pink. Unfortunately, “globally” often means “everywhere except the US.” Hopefully you’ll be able to get it unlocked at least, because there are a whole lot of people that are dying to get a smaller phone that doesn’t sacrifice on specs. No word on price yet.
