Today at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Japanese mobile phone maker Sony Mobile has officially launched a new device in its Xperia lineup, namely the Xperia Z1 Compact, and Phones4u will be one of the retailers to bring it to the UK.The company has already added the new smartphone to its website, allowing users to pre-order it in one of the four colors of their choosing, namely White, Black, Lime, and Pink.
Those who reserve the handset through this retailer will also receive a free Sony SRS-BTX300 Wireless Speaker worth £119 ($195/€143), along with £65 ($106/€78) worth of music and movies. However, it all depends on the contracts that users will go for.
Sony Xperia Z1 Compact can be obtained for free on contracts that start at £29 ($47/€35) per month at Vodafone (with 600 minutes, unlimited texts, and 500MB of data included). However, other options are also available.
The new Xperia Z1 Compact arrives on the market with a 4.3-inch 720p touchscreen display, a 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor inside, and 2GB of RAM.
Moreover, the mobile phone features 16GB of internal memory, a microSD memory card slot, and a 20.7 megapixel camera on the back, with 1/2.3-type CMOS image sensor Exmor RS for mobile, G Lens, and the BIONZ for mobile image processing engine.
Xperia Z1 Compact runs under Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and packs the usual set of connectivity capabilities and sensors. The handset is powered by a 2300mAh battery that should provide great usage time.
“Not only does the Xperia Z1 Compact look beautiful, it is tough too. The phone is built around a solid aluminum frame, and encased in durable tempered glass. But the innovation doesn't stop there - the Z1 Compact is completely dust resistant and waterproof,” Phones4u notes.
