With the recent trend of making smartphones bigger and bigger (such as the gigantic Xperia Z Ultra), most OEMs have all but stopped making smaller high-end devices, and have instead released a series of ever growing flagship models. Sony may be the first to break that pattern with the Xperia Z1f which provides a far superior alternative to any other 'mini' Android smartphone.

The new Z1f features a 4.3-inch 720 x 1280 display, a 2.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage, a 20.7 MP back-facing camera, a 2 MP front-facing camera, an IR blaster, and a 2300 mAh battery. It is also water and dust resistant like it's big brother the Z1.

While these specs are certainly comparable to any top tier flagship phone on the market today, this little phone weighs just 140 grams (4.94 ounces), and measures just 127 × 65 × 9.4 mm (5 x 2.56 x 0.37 inches), meaning it's absolutely tiny by today's standards and certainly easier to fit in a pocket. It will also be available in a number of different colors including lime, black, white and pink.

The Xperia Z1f will be in stores in Japan in late December. Prices and availability in other regions have not yet been announced.
