Xperia Z1s model number expected to be D5503; first sample image leaks

by XB on 12th November 2013

in Rumours, Xperia Z1

Sony D5503 ThumbThe Sony Xperia Z1s should be announced early next year as the mini version of the Xperia Z1. It appears that the Xperia Z1s model number will be D5503 with codename Amami. This fits the naming scheme of this being the first 2014 Sony Xperia handset. When Sony moved to its new model numbering system, the first letter determined the year. So ‘C’ was 2013, ‘D’ is 2014, ‘E’ is 2015 and so on.

This particular model is the European LTE version and shows that the Xperia Z1s is likely to see a global release. It also highlights where this particular model will sit in its 2014 line-up. The 2013 equivalent was the Xperia ZR (C5503) which had a 4.6-inch 720p display. We spotted some sample images from the D5503 on Flickr and you can see the Exif information below. It shows that the handset was running firmware version 14.2.A.0.204. We’ll bring you more details as we have them.

  • sisore

    My question is how can we make sure that this one would be the so-called Z1s, aside from its expected-to-be name D5503?

  • sony

    dat name of yours
    in my language ya=(saying for long time) chi= utter waste

  • So the model number has a little reasoning for each character and/or number.

    Yet the commercial naming scheme, makes absolutely no sense. (Xperia A,C,J,K,M,Z,ZR,Z1,Z Ultra, etc.)

  • XperiaBlog

    According to the source link it is, but you’re right there’s no hard evidence that suggests both are linked.

  • Garmelia

  • josesl16

    If it’s 2014, I hope Sony changes the design. The rectangular design got pretty boring, after all.

  • Sonic

    In the universal language Ya=Yuck (saying it fast) chi=Ky so Yukky… it’s got a nice ring to it.

  • Dr. james bond

    The xperia z is realy good if they will calibrate the screen even z1 screen is colorless and washed out and i dont have samsung phone but i prefer thier screen much more then sony cheap screens with light leak and cheap panels

  • Mac

    maybe it’s ZR mini x)

  • Guest

    Why is the Camera type Sony D5503, shouldn’t it be Sony Xperia Z1s. My Windows phone says Nokia Lumia 920 and my iPhone says iPhone 5. What the hell is D5503?

  • Berg

    Triangles, man.. That’s the future!

  • Joni

  • Mohammed Khired


    everything is good about Xperias except the screen and the software

  • Joses Lemmuela

  • Moth

  • Dave

    Mr. Bond, I though you had the Xperia T?

  • Vitali

    Take a xperia P and look at his screen no fucking viewing angles very bright.. but sony decided to put a good screen to P and their worst screen into the S, their flagship! well done sony. why do they put their worst screens in their flagships?! why?
    same in T and TX.. in T they put good screen but there’s still viewing angles but in TX another story.. becasue TX was less popular and etc. they can make good screens, they already made.. But they want to put their worst screens in their flagships… wth

  • James Bond

    2.4 MB for 8MP, it still shows that there is too much compression, S3 8 MP shots are generally 3.0-3.5MB in size.

    So Z1F isn´t for sale yet? then ok…

  • [csizor

    The colors in my Xperia L doesn’t look “washed out”. Also, SONY will implement WhiteMagic technology in future phones.

  • HardyHarHar

    Don’t you want to have some HTC One? You could use it as a throwable weapon in case your enemies flee.

  • raxxta

    Ikr! It would be so funny if Sony used it in the actual promos though!

  • raxxta

    Ha Sony would make a ton of money if they had us as executives!

  • raxxta

    You’re saving up for a Lumia, too eh? Cmon, Sony, it’s 2013 and it takes more than a crappy 8mp image of a hairy weirdo to excite the public! Make. Me. Believe.

  • cherry

    HTC one with 4mp & the public go insane. if the camera perform good, why not?

  • Juan Camanei

    damn, fuck you! whoever started the rumor
