Sony introduces Xperia Z1 Compact

Sony has introduced the mini version of the Xperia Z1 flagship that packs a smaller display but carries a powerful 20.7 megapixel camera, the Xperia Z1 Compact.

The Xperia Z1 Compact bears everything that makes the Xperia Z1 flagship standout: a premium aluminum body that is dustproof and waterproof, a 20.7 megapixel f/2.0 camera with 1/2.3″ Exmor RS mobile image sensor, 2.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU, 2GB of RAM, and Android 4.3 Jellybean.

The difference now is that the Compact sports a smaller 4.3-inch HD (1280 x 720) TRILUMINOS display with X-Reality at 342ppi, a smaller battery at 2,300mAh, and a thicker (9.5mm) but lighter (137g) body than the Z1.

  1. Akala ko hindi ka na darating, napa-apply na tuloy ako ng z1. Sana mabenta ko z1 pagdating mo! haha

    Can someone confirm if IPS yung display at kung may IOS siya?

    • i mean OIS….:)

    • Rabitto29

      It uses IPS not their regular VA-TFT

      no OIS though, but instead it uses its BIONZ processor

    • shining shimering

      Sony does’nt use ips nor amoled because they have their own display which is triluminos with X-reality display for mobile. Get it?!?!? :@

    • Rabitto29

      @shining shimering – kindly read the 2nd page of my link, it uses an IPS panel with triluminous display tech and X-reality is an image processing engine not a type of display. if you have no knowledge with different display panels just buzz off. – P.S. Please check your grammar before posting.

    Its a TFT LCD according to GSMArena…

  3. Eto rin ba yung xperia z1f ng docomo japan?

    Finally , an Xperia with an iPS display!

    They need to ditch their crappy TFT tech., honestly it’s really going nowhere.
