After a lot of rumors, Sony finally unveiled the Sony Xperia Z1 "Honami" flagship smartphone last week at IFA 2013. Now, an alleged image of a smaller version with similar specs shows the Honami Mini, internally codenamed Itsuki, next to two full size Xperia Z1 handsets.

This rumor is not new, but the image is much better than the one leaked back in August. The leaked specs are unchanged, as you can see below:

  • Processor: quad-core 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 800
  • Display: 4.3-inch with 720p resolution
  • Memory/Storage: 2 GB RAM; 16 GB internal storage
  • Camera: 20.7 MP rear camera with Sony G Lens
  • Battery: 2,400 mAh
  • Official unveiling: January 7 to January 10 at CES 2014

If it will be announced as expected, the Sony Xperia Z1 Mini will probably come loaded with Android 4.4 KitKat. Regarding other features it may offer, a front-facing VGA camera and support for microSD cards are two things the Itsuki will surely have.

If the Sony Xperia Z1 Mini will have the specs mentioned above, its price may be pretty close to the Honami, but that remains to be seen. For now, all we have is rumors and speculations.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
