Sony had plenty to announce at IFA 2013 last week, but the company might be saving one more smartphone reveal for CES early next year. A forum post on Digi-wo has seemingly confirmed the specifications of the smaller version of the Xperia Z1. Those specs include a 4.3-inch 720p screen, Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage and the 20.7-megapixel camera that Sony included on the larger Z1. These specs are very similar to the Xperia Z1 specs revealed during IFA, but understandably scaled down to suit the smaller hardware. The source claims that the Xperia Z1 mini will be unveiled in January at CES 2014. An image of the purported Xperia Z1 mini hero phone sitting next to its larger counterparts can be seen below.
