Sony has just announced the Xperia Z1 Compact at CES 2014. Unlike most mini flagship variants, it features a specs sheet that doesn't compromise, and has almost identical specs to the Xperia Z1 flagship.

A closer see at the specs sheet, and you'll see Sony have managed to fit in the same CPU, camera, memory, and internal storage into a size that's truly compact:

  • Dimensions: 127 x 64.9 x 9.5 mm, 137g

  • Display: 4.3" Triluminous IPS display of 720p resolution, 341ppi

  • Chipset: elegant Qualcomm Snapdragon 800; quad-core Krait 400 at 2.2GHz, Adreno 330 GPU, 2GB RAM

  • OS: Android 4.3 Jelly Bean (planned upgrade to 4.4 KitKat shortly after launch)

  • Camera: 20.7 MP, Carl Zeiss optics, optical image stabilization, autofocus, Light Emitting Diode (LED) flash, 2MP front-facing

  • Video camera: 1080p @ 30fps video capture with both cameras

  • Storage: 16GB built-in, microSD card slot with support of up to 64GB

  • Connectivity: NFC, A-GPS+GLONASS, WLocal Area Network (LAN) (2.4/5Ghz) a/b/g/n/ac, microUniversal Serial Bus (USB) 2.0 (MHL), BlueTooth 4.0 LE

  • Battery: 2,300 mAh

  • Misc: Frequency Modulation (FM) Radio, built-in accelerometer, multi-touch input, proximity sensor

  • Colors: Black, White, Pink, Lime, Yellow

The only thing that didn't create the slit is the display resolution, which has been slit down to 720p, and the battery, which has been reduced to 2300 mAh - the same as on the previous Xperia Z flagship. Luckily those seem to balance out just fine and the Xperia Z1 compact promises pretty fine battery life.
