Sony Xperia Z1 and Xperia X1 mini Compared in the Latest Xperia Z1s Leak Images

Xperia Z1 vs Xperia Z1s

We’ve heard so many rumors and seen so many leaks of the upcoming minimized version of the Sony Xperia Z1 that it seems hardly possible to impress us with anything new. However, the latest leak from Digi-Wo user shows three images of the Xperia Z1s opposed to its bigger sibling Xperia Z1, allowing us to compare the two devices from outside.

It has been already revealed that the Xperia Z1s won’t lag behind the Z1 in terms of specs. The features that differ the two handsets are the screen size with lower resolution and the battery capacity. The rest of the features the Xperia Z1s boasts are pretty similar to the Z1, i.e. the device comes with powerful quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor as well as impressive 20.7MP rear camera for capturing high-res images. Before moving to the Xperia Z1s leak images, let us compare the Xperia Z1 and Xperia Z1s specs in a tablet.

In terms of design, the two phones are rather similar. Both the Xperia Z1s and Z1 come with volume control, camera shutter and lock/unlock key for a more comfortable use. Most of the modern high-end smartphones do not boast a camera shutter, which is not very convenient when you need to take a picture of yourself or let someone else who doesn’t deal with touch screen devices well enough capture an image. Both smartphones are waterproof as well as dust resistant, which has become one of the key specs the latest Sony smartphones now boast.

When it comes to camera features, the bigger and smaller models boast a back-illuminated sensor, auto focus, touch to focus, digital image stabilization, face detection, smile detection, white balance presets, burst mode, digital zoom, geo tagging, HDR mode, panorama, scenes, and self-timer. All this brings phone experience to the new level, making it easier to share images and videos on social platforms.

The second image shows the purple Xperia Z1s standing beside the white Xperia Z1. At first glance you will mention that the two handsets differ in size (the Xperia Z1s is more pocket-friendly), though the two boast similar interfaces. The image also shows that the Xperia Z1s may be priced at $590, with the availability date set for Q1 2014.

Rumor has it the device might be released under a different name than the Xperia Z1s and come with an IPS Display. What we may assume for sure is the price tag and spec list of the upcoming phone. The official Xperia Z1s release date is still to be confirmed, so stay tuned!
