SONY please don't kill this little baby with some lack of good features he must have !
you've killed 3 already:
1: XPERIA Z ( Poor screen, lack of camera shutter, small battery )
2: XPERIA Z Ultra ( Lack of led flash, lack of camera shutter )
3: XPERIA Z1 ( SAME Poor screen of Xperia z ? )
so pleaaaase sony make this baby with the same screen of Xperia z ultra
and the rest same as xperia z1, and it would be a little monster that gonna eat iphone 5s and S4 and HTC and Nokia, he would be like Bruce lee fighting his way to the dragon mountain
pleaaaaaaaaaaaaaase SONY :\
David, 04 Oct 2013About the TFT screen, guys the specs are preliminary and unofficial so we shall wait and see m... moredude the tft screen are poor on viewing angles and take a lot of battery juice !
what about the IPS screen ?
way to go Sony !!! And about the screen, a good LCD will (at least for now) be better than any LED screen in color accuracy and way it shows White. If you`re no color-blind you will choose it.

I hope the... moreYou should consider it as a "flagship" but not a "mid-ranger" like other mini does. If this Z1 mini is true, then Sony will be the first Android OEM that releasing a "small" flagship.
I guess Sony is trying to steal some customer from Apple as many ppl think that all Android flagship is simply too big for them like my sis who using iPhone 4s currently.
Just a perfect powerhouse and pocket friendly device.
With such awesome specs, Hope it packs a good battery.
SONY DOESNT WANT TO COMPROMISE ON THE MID RANGE SEGMENT HOWEVER.
AdrianHall06, 04 Oct 2013thats just crazy. I like cheap but with those specs in that form factor it's at least US500. Least!What did you find crazy?? Well I think $500 is too much of a prediction for a mini. I hope they dont follow Apple's path by putting this phone on a whopping price!

This is gonna be my next phone.. Will the screen be as good to look at as the z1?
WOW,this is going to be a game change for Sony. ..if the price is right I will take 2 z1 mini's
Betly, 04 Oct 2013sony still using the poor cheap TFT screen which's the (oldest) smart phones screen !!!
and... moreBefore bashing TFT is cheap and old, please go Google and try understand what is TFT, at least. Nowadays, most display including any latest LCD or LED display are all using TFT display/technology, AMOLED is using TFT panel too.
Posting a ignorant comment like this will only embarrassing yourself, kid.
i dont think that the informant provided is relevant as there should be difference between mini and pro like we can compare samsung galaxy s4 and s4 mini there is a lot of diffenece snd in this there is just less difference . maybe i think that it will be casting 5000 less that xperia z1
just tell me what is the diff between z1 and z1 mini except screen
This is exactly what ineed .. accept one thing missing is the IR as in Samsung S4 mini, but it is not that mutch issue.
Could any body tell us When it is launches ???
Must be a good sign to see this phone enter the most popular phones section when it's not even announced yet!
IF it comes to the Netherlands, I have found the replacement for my N8. (Now just to get my hands on one of those QX external camera's as well)
Its significantly upgraded the old xperia acro s or the xperia v in terms of their size and 4.3 inch display.
Woah! Now this is what's called a mini. Kept the specs of the flagship device and reduced the size - excellent! It's certainly gonna beat S4 Mini and HTC One Mini. If the price is going to be around $250-$350, then that will be the icing on the cake. Someone on GSMarena commented that Z1 Mini is gonna beat this S4 mini. Looks like he/she was right! Honestly, specs are signalling the phone to cost as much as $400. I can't wait for the launching.
P.S. This is my second comment on this phone. My comments are not being published. I haven't disobeyed the rules and relegations set by GSMarena. :(
Was going to go for the z1 this month. But ill wait a little longer for the z1 mni
