Sony Xperia Z1 f launched in Japan with the same powerful specs in a smaller package
It still features the 20-megapixel rare-facing camera with G Lens
As it was promised, the Japanese exclusive Sony Xperia Z1 f model hit the shelves in Japan through NTT Docomo. The mini version of the original Sony Xperia Z1 model joined Docomo’s roster with powerful and manageable in terms of size specs.
The flagship Xperia Z1 is far too big and heavy and even though it’s quite a brilliant handset, it’s not very comfortable to use with only one hand. The Docomo-branded smartphone on the other hand offers the same powerful specs in a smaller package. Unlike other mini versions, however, the Japanese exclusive Xperia Z1 f is still a high-end device and features an impressive package of hardware.
Unlike the original model, it sports a 4.3-inch display with a very good pixel density and a resolution of 1280×720 pixels and above all, the handset is likely to return better subpar viewing angels in comparison to Z1.It’s also scratch-resistant and water-proof. In terms of processing power, the device operates with the splendid quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor coated at 2.2GHz and combines with Adreno 330 graphics processor, all running with 2GB of RAM. The smartphone packs 16GB integrated storage and, of course, there’s a microSD card slot for further expansion up to 64GB.
The best part is that the device features the same Xperia Z1 20-megapixel rare-facing camera with G Lens, LED flash and HD video recording, so nothing has been changed here. Other highlights of the Japanese exclusive handset is that it features a 2300mAh Li-Ion battery as well as a support for Wi-Fi, LTE and Bluetooth connectivity as well as the device includes IP55/IP58 dust and water resistance.
Basically, we believe it’s safe to say, that Sony Xperia Z1 f is the same as the original model without its disadvantages.
In case you feel bad about not being Japanese, there’s still a strong speculation about the International version that is going to be unveiled at CES 2014 next month. So stay tuned.
