lalala, 25 Aug 2013wtf? 4.3 or 4 - its mini? 3.7 or less is mini. and you all say 4 inch display is too small.. ... moreThe mini version of a 5" phone is 4.3". Their 0.7" difference is fair enough as in the past, the size difference between the Nokia N97-N97 mini was only 0.3".
we like companies to fool us with supposedly secret/spy photos/videos. usually companies create-publish these images. people nowadays pay more attention to a spy photo-video than a good-expensive advertisement. a cheap method with good results. funny huh?

and you all say 4 inch display is too small.. LOL
I dont want to live on this planet anymore.
not a long time ago people called 4 inch display a giant smartphone.
Anonymous, 25 Aug 2013The device will be too small if such resolutions and such sizes. I had a Xperia Ray, it was... moreBut this one is considerably wider than Ray, check the specs. Also the Xperia U its 3.5 inch FWVGA display is not nearly as wide as this one. GA is just trying to use the rumored Ray 3 codename in the article and fail to mention the device width.
Its clearly much wider then Xperia Ray, theres lots of space for a bigger display, and the reason its a tad shorter than Ray is simply the bottom bezel space saving because of onscreen buttons.
Its too small to pack such a battery without getting fat, more likely looking at a maximum of 2000 mah.
Its ok with me if its 4 inch, the important thing is 720p. At that size and resolution it will be visibly clearer than a 4.3 inch HD displays.
The device will be too small if such resolutions and such sizes.
I had a Xperia Ray, it was way too small to use it efficiently, even for sms you had to use a swype keyboard and preferably in landscape mode.
It was okay for taking/viewing pictures and making calls though.
against the 5'' xperia honami the honami mini wouldn't be called mini ... extra mini !!!!! i hope we will see it in september ...
I don't think this is the Honami Mini. Sony would not have decreased the size that dramatically as even the iPhone 5 towers over this phone. It would have to be sub 4". I think this might be a budget phone but definitely not the Honami Mini which should come in at 4-4.3 inches.
Hopefully they don't launch it DOA with flagship pricing. Otherwise, this looks exactly the kind of form factor I want in a phone!
That's what I call real MINI version :) Lets wait another...10 days :) And we will maybe know everything then. One thing I know, that I need to reserve 600 euros for this phone.
Paximos, 25 Aug 2013That is a great size. I was going to buy GS4 Mini, I guess I have to hold off on that now. I think I will too buddy, or I might go for the Xperia SP
Anonymous, 25 Aug 2013lol... too small for people with big hands.. There are already so many 4.3"-4.7" type phones out there. If you wanted a 4.3"-4.7", just go get a HTC ONE or mini or something else. I find my S4 too big. 4" is just what a I wanted. No dumbed down specs as well... Just wonderful.
