Sony Xperia Z1 Compact

Android Central @ CES

It's Sony's turn to take the CES stage, and they've arrived with yet another entry into its Xperia lineup: meet the Xperia Z1 Compact, a miniaturized, colorful version of the company's  Z1 flagship.

We think this model will have the same broad appeal as its Xperia Z1, as it ships with nearly the same specs: we're looking at the same waterproof coating, Snapdragon 800 processor and 2 gigs of RAM.  The Z1 Compact also matches the Z1's camera: here, you'll find the same 20.7 MP shooter with f/2.0 lens and Exmor CMOS sensor, which Sony promises is one of the best mobile shooters in the business.

Here, though, Sony opted for a smaller, 4.3-inch display with 720p resolution. Sony also opted for a more colorful finish, and the Z1 Compact will ship in black, white, yellow and pink.

We'll be hunting down demo units for some quality hands on time once Sony's presser wraps up, but until we do, be sure to head over to our #CESLive hub for the rest of today's news.
