It’s been over a month since we heard anything of the Sony “Itsuki” — rumored to be a smaller version of the Xperia Z1 with similar specs. Originally rumored for a September unveiling alongside the full-sized Z1, the device was a no-show at IFA in Berlin earlier this month.
But yesterday brought further evidence of the miniature Z1’s existence, in the form of a brochure leak from Japanese carrier NTT Docomo obtained by XperiaBlog. In it, the Sony Xperia Z1 f is listed alongside the regular Z1, with a full spec sheet and renders to boot. The Z1 f is shown in black, white, pink and lime green, with a 4.3-inch, 720p display, a Snapdragon 800 CPU, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. It also seems the Z1’s 20.7 Exmor RS camera has made it across to the smaller version, along with that handset’s IP58-rated water and dust resistance credentials. Powering the Z1 f is a 2300mAh battery, according to the spec sheet.
The specs fit with earlier rumors that the mini Z1 wouldn’t sacrifice raw horsepower in order to fit into a smaller chassis, though with a thickness of 9.4mm, it looks like the Xperia Z1 f might be a good deal thicker than earlier Z-series phones. For now, we’ll have to wait and see if the Z1 f will see release outside of Japan, but it’s encouraging news for those looking for top-level specs in a smaller handset.
