Many brands like Samsung and HTC have this habit, good or bad, of creating a diminished version of their flagships both in size and specifications. Newly announced Sony Xperia Z1 may just have its smaller clone. They call it the Sony Xperia Z1 mini. However, these are just rumours based on anonymous image leaks across the net.
Many other manufacturers make the minis unacceptably degraded in specifications as to that of the flagship. However, the Sony Xperia Z1 mini will be a device, true to its name. The phone will get proportionally smaller and slimmer. Rumours even state that the device may house the same Snapdragon 800 processor, that looks unlikely, a Snapdragon 600 would do just fine. Further, the device may retain the flagship’s 20.7 MP camera. If all this is true, the device may be the best mini device out there yet, set to eradicate others in its price range. You never know, the images shown above may just be the work of some good Photoshop.
