Disappointing specs :( 127 x 64.9 x 9.4 almost repeats the size of Xperia V which is not a "mini" phone at all... Keeping in mind Snapdragon 800 and 20.7 MP camera I expect a high price tag also. Not an option for those who were expecting nice looking stylish mini device with reasonable price tag. I'm sure Sony won't have any good sales with this devise. They could make much more interesting device but made something what makes people to think that on the whole S4 mini is much more reasonable device to get (even considering its shortcomings). Disappointed.
way too big!!! the perfect "mini size" would be iphone 5 / droid mini size..
Companies by own intent do not make android minis perfect for the fear of lower flagship sales. It's not a big deal to make an equally speced mini version of flagships but doing so can affect flagships to an extent even higher than by iphone .p
I really hope its wrong info or another phone. 65mm wide I'm not intrested in a phablet.
Ive been waiting all this time, well well see during CES. Might have to buy a S4 mini if this honami mini is so wide.
Comrade, 30 Sep 2013Not interested in sony products. Once you buy any Sony product - you are left without any firm... moreAre you insane? Sony has provided the most number of firmware updates this year...i have been getting one update atleast every 2 months for my Xperia ZL

so basically a mini with 4.3" about the same size of Moto X with 4.7"?! Not that mini at all.
Besides Z1 in person looks horribly big, with wayyyyy too much bezel.
121.3 x 61.3 x 8.9 mm - droid mini, a true mini!
Still disappointed at those dimensions. A 4.3 inch device should be able to match in dimensions Motorola's RAZR m/i down to the millimetre.
Finally someone is trying to step up to Apple
Sick and tired of looking at the new android phones with brick size screen and they call it 'innovation'
while their 'mini' versions are nothing but pathetically under speced and no way to match with iPhone
But this, it will par with iphone and will bring over those small screen phone lovers including myself
Anonymous, 30 Sep 2013Huge dimensions considering the small display. At least the battery/display ratio is very good... moretheres no g2 mini genius...
I bet someone can say S5 Mini would beat it as well
finally nicely speced phone under 4.5"
I am definitely interested and might let my iPhone go finally
for sure. it is going to be a beast, as for 4.3" screen HD Resoution will be a killer. Example: Nexus 4. The Full HD screen can be a CPU drainer in many case. This Z1 Mini is going to be a B E A S T !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
all the other Mini phones are not worthy of being a Mini, when compared to the brandname they shared.
For example: S3 Mini
HTC One Mini
All were poor spec-ed phones, ala iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S, just sharing the brand name of a good flagship device
At least Z1 Mini is a beast and comparable to the flagship Z1
Keep it up
Nice nice nice! Waiting for this beast! I'm expecting the display to be as perfect as the one on the Z Ultra, The Z1 Triluminos display doesn't look good as the ZU's.

I think you hadn't seen optimus2. The back cover got no class. In Dubai nobody exchanged their old Xperia z to a new optimus2.
