Sony Xperia Z1S smartphone release date revealed

PanARMENIAN.Net - Just a week after the specifications and images of Sony's upcoming Xperia Z1S smartphone hit the internet, the handset's price and launch date have been revealed. Xperia Z1S is the Japanese company's smartphone with top-end specs, but a relatively smaller screen, TOI Tech reported.

A user on a Chinese forum has posted new images of the Xperia Z1S along with its tentative launch period and price. The handset will reportedly cost 3,600 yuan (or $590). This is just a little less than the 3,820 yuan ($630) price tag of the current top model, Xperia Z1.

Sony is likely to launch the smartphone in the first quarter of next year, according to the report.

The Xperia Z1S is said to have a 4.3-inch 720p display, run on Android 4.3 (Jelly Bean) and pack a 2,300mAh battery. It will share features like a 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 chipset, 2GB RAM and 20.7MP camera with its bigger sibling Xperia Z1.

This smartphone will be the only handset in the market to have a top-end chipset and camera. Other smaller variants of top smartphones, such as Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini and HTC One Mini, do not share such specs with their bigger counterparts except branding.
