Small body means small battery......S800 is too much for 4.3 inch 720p screen phone...it will do nothing but drain the battery...and heat the phone....lower clocked s600 is enough....
i think honami mini should be like this( if this one is true):
4,3' screen 720x1280
s600 1,9 ghz
13 or 16 mpx camera
1080p @60fps(honami do 4k)
16 gb 2 gb ram
8,5-1,2 cm thick
battery 2400 mah( its ok there)
this specs sounds more 'mini' to me. Anyway i cant to see the real deal.
actually, i prefer iphone 5-sized smartphone, find samsung phones too large

The Z Ultra with an uncomfortably large 6.44" screen is a miscalculation by Sony, which for sure have brilliant designers. I don't know why they jumped right away to 6.44" when the competition is 5-6". An epic fail.
I hope Sony don't saddle this with the God awful LCD screen they've been shoving into the Xperia Z and SP. Lovely phones utterly ruined with cheap ass displays that are too washed out and not a patch on HTC IPS and Samsung AMOLED.

Well done Sony. After a long time I might even consider an xperia.
I just hope the screen tech won't be as bad as the one on the xperia Z.
a phone kids. in the past it used to count as big screen. hehe. My ideal size is about 5.5-6 inch = still easliy pocketable. sony please release 5.5-6 inch (6 inch will have to be with ultra thin bezel...) flag ship to rival note 3 - and it will be so mine.
Wow..........if this is true, sony would be one of my favourite brands. After all they are the first ones to hear GSMarena's petition on change.org. By the way sony is going in the right direction.....my best wishes to them.
Snapdragon 800 in a 720p screen is WAY too overkill and too power hungry for a 2400 mah battery. Snapdragon 600 is better to use here.
(5"+4")/2=4.5", 4.55" is the ideal screen size, 4" worked well for iphone(girls phone) 4.3" is nice but 4.55" is perfect, Sony u have done it with the T,ZR and SP, please keep it, I need an all-around smartphone, not just for call and text which is good for small screen size. 4.55 4.55 4.55 ....
awesome work by sony... S4 mini n one mini are dead now... y should we have only huge smartphones n phablets with top end specs... as there are many people who want a flagship specs in a small phone n sony has just done it while samsung n htc failed again... nice job sony just keep the price reasonable and then no one can stop u from climbing the ladder... other companies might learn from sony what actual "mini" of a flagship means...
GSMARENA,kindly inform Sony to keep the screen size same with ZR-4.55", just slightly larger. It will be pleasurable to text and call and browse the web, not just text and call which is good only for small screen size. Please, I am waiting for the ZR but it never landed here in Sg, Sony please keep the 4.55" screen.
