Sony Xperia Z1 mini price and release date: The Sony Xperia Z1 mini, which many tech writers are saying will be launched as the “Sony Z1S” as the compact version of the flagship handset Sony Xperia Z1, was spotted at Sony’s website a few hours before it’s expected global release date. It was immediately taken down by Sony.

Earlier reports have indicated that the Sony Xperia Z1 mini will be released November 12 (today), with Sony holding an event in Shanghai to commence the launch. At the time of this writing, there have been no news of the Japanese tech giant sending out invitation for a November 12 event.

The upcoming device has a powerful Snapdragon 800 system chip and an impressive 20MP camera with a larger than usual 1/2.3” camera sensor. Phone Arena also noted that it will have the same sleek water and dust resistant body.

The only thing smaller in the compact version is obviously the display size, which comes at 4.3-inch compared to its original version, which has a 5-inch display. Under the hood, however, specs for the Z1 Mini or Z1S is the same.

The one main internal component that has been reduced in this compact version is the battery. Battery capacity for the Sony Xperia Z1 Mini is at 2300mAh, down from 3000mAh on the flagship 5-inch Xperia Z1.

Price for the Sony Xperia Z1 Mini is still unknown, but if previous “Mini” versions are any reference, the handset could be between $100-200 cheaper than the original flagship. This would peg the compact to possibly be priced at around $400-500.
