Whispers were spread out in the world about a possible “mini” handset of the Xperia Z1, the device that is now the official product of Sony`s; the device will be nothing but “mini” in terms of performances. As a matter of fact, a smaller version of the Xperia Z1 was seen in Japan as the Xperia Z1 f, coming with a powerful Snapdragon 800 CPU, a 4.3-inch display with 1280×720 megapixels, 2 GB of RAM, as well as with a strong and high-quality camera of 20.1 MP, as its flagship Xperia Z1. And just right now, there has been a list rolling out at FCC revealing that a possible Xperia Z1 S will be launched with more details to follow.
The device is now being rolled out only in Japan with NTT DoCoMo, and might be coming soon for the rest of the world under the codename of “Anami”, as the FCC also mentions. As our source states, the FCC provides some clues concerning its features.
The Sony Xperia Z1 S Anami would come with the same Snapdragon 800 processor, 2 GB of RAM, the same 20 MP camera, but a smaller display of 4.3-inch. The device will have pentaband HSPA support, along with LTE supports for larger bands, like 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8 and 20 – which are actually the bands for the European Xperia Z1.
With this in mind, we might consider this as being the international version of the device. So far, we haven’t got any other news or information concerning an official statement of the release of this device in Europe, but let`s hope that Sony will make a good move by releasing a press conference in 2014 announcing the launch of the rumored Sony Anami. Until then, enjoy your Sony Xperia Z1 great smartphone.
