Xperia Z1s aka ‘Z1 mini’ pictures leak; confirms D5503 model number

by XB on 13th November 2013

in Rumours, Xperia Z1

Xperia Z1s_D5503_3We all know what the Sony Xperia Z1 mini will look like as it has already been announced by NTT DoCoMo in Japan. However, many are waiting to hear if the handset will make its way outside of Japan. The evidence is certainly pointing that way and now we have another huge leak.

The photos below show the phone, expected to be called the Xperia Z1s, with a Sony logo on the front rather than NTT DoCoMo confirming this is the international version. Another picture of the About screen also shows the phone with model number D5503 running Android 4.3 firmware with build version 14.2.A.0.205. The DoCoMo version has model number SO-02F.

A ruler is used in the pictures to give a sense of dimension, confirming that this is the diminutive version of the Xperia Z1. The screenshots also seem to confirm the use of 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage. The Android 4.3 UI that Sony is using, is not much different from the UI seen in the Xperia Z1 and Z Ultra running Android 4.2.2. Hit the source link for even more screenshots from the device. All of this suggests that the ‘Xperia Z1 mini’ announcement is a matter of when and not if.

  • shah

    its funny coz this leaks has warnings like dunnot upload pics and all, but the uploader says leik ” well fk dis shit!, the world needs to know this baby is ready to rock and roll!”

  • shah

    I’m pretty sure the bazels are there for a reason. anyone can explain this to us?

  • boosook

    Why? Android 4.3 didn’t bring any UI change as well.

  • hans

    TO handle the phone sideways? More often than not, even with the Z Ultra of mine i felt the side bezel is too thin to be able being handled sideways with my thumb. So i always need to reorder my hand to hold the phone by the bottom bezel. There is a reason that tablet usually has that big bezel you know.

  • SmallerXperia

    Well, it is 65 mm. So i guess other measurements are the same.

  • Purnama

    and also its a proper mini version of the flagship..

    If it’s really the Z1 in mini version, do you think the camera will stop working on the ZI mini too if I unlock the bootloader? thanks…

  • @atWidget

    I don’t want any vote! I want answer…

    Sony knows ;)

  • jmaxim917

    This phone appears some what less appealing than the Z1, though it could be the pics.

  • shah

    so that is the reason? atleast we have reasoning now…

  • @atWidget

    Since Sony knows we had 2 firmware updates and always the same with camera and bootloader (.518, .534, .257, …) … So I will complete your words:

    Sony knows… and they don’t care!

  • SinaKing

    This Pics Makes Sense …
    I Think Major Updates For Android 4.3 are Bringing Trim & Support OpenGL ES 3.0 To 2013 Devices !
    UI Changes Maybe Transfered To 4.4 Kit-Kat !

  • sisore

    Same wish here xD

  • Utsav Shah

    No doubt that the size has a lot of impact on looks and this one looks sexier than the Z or Z1.
    @Sony register my pre-order now !!

  • Harut Hajin

    EEEEEE ( SORRY FOR POOR ENGLISH ) but XperiaBlog , its not announced in Japan , its Global Version , and the pictures taken in Ukraine , D5503 model with same specs how Z1 only smaller screen 4.3 screen and 720p display not 1080p , same waterproofing phone much smaller . Price 370 USD , and Would be start pre order January in next year

  • shah

    “like” means similar to the z1f announce bu NTT Docomo Japan earlier. Where did you get the 370 price tag? care to share with us? because 370 is not a bad price tag if it is true..

  • Harut Hajin

    its Xperia Z1S D5503 model , not NTT Version . And the man Who taken those pictures working in Network Organization in Ukraine , phone taken for certification .

  • Why is the screen so yellow?

  • sisore

    The question is how do you know it would be priced at 370 USD?
    I’ll be very happy of course, but it seems to be too good for just 370 USD, not to say that this is Sony :v

  • Joshua Hill

    No, looks like 127mm to me. You have to take into account parallax error in the photos showing the ruler and vertical height/length of the phone.

    Also the Japanese Z1 F variant is 127mm, why would the Z1 S be any different?

  • Micro

    I forgot to mention, the year was 1920 ;]

    anyway.. I’ve just kidding.. ;)

  • Tech Gospel

    I guess you’re right.

    Well, the Japanese versions of anything rarely have to do with anything else they release globally. There’s no reason to believe that anything released in Japan, even under the same name, would be the same. That’s the only reason I was hoping that the Z1s Int’l would be slightly smaller.

  • Joshua Hill

    Yeah I love some of the unique versions released in Japan. Although in this case looks like the only thing changing is DOCOMO branding to SONY branding and we probably won’t have as many colour options.

  • samshit

    Even the bezels are the same, shame, i was hoping somethin new on this side, but nope, nexus 5 for sure now

  • Mohammed Khired

    how much cheaper ?

    if we say the z1 is about 610 $ , how much would the Z1s become ?

  • Mohammed Khired

    looks better than the “big-ass” Z1 !

  • Mohammed Khired

    it’s a 4.3 inch carrying snapdragon 800 with a 20 mp shooter

    u can’t find that in other company !

  • shah

    I think it’s basically the same. Last time I checked the price for xperia z1 release in japan, it was 74k yen, (RM 2394) which is when converted to my currency, it is the same price at retail shops. thus, I doubt there will be a difference. Anyways, lets hope this onbe gets out fast =D

    p/s: The difference is only an extra RM 2 at 2399

  • shah

    Looks like Doctor Who got his hands first =.=” =P

  • sam


  • LancerEX

    Japan’s Xperia acro was slightly different from the international Xperia arc right? Also, Xperias in Japan were slightly different from their twins sold everywhere else :)

  • Joshua Hill

    YES, and it was rumoured the mini would be slightly different too. We are still only talking rumours but recent rumours suggest the Z1 s will be identical to the Z1 f.

    So apart from muddying the waters, not actually discussing the phone in question, what was your point?

  • LancerEX

    Earlier you said “why would the Z1 S be any different?” in a previous comment. :)

  • Joshua Hill

    So, I’m not sure if you replied to the wrong comment or Disqus is doing it’s usual tricks and confusing everyone. Assuming it’s not Disqus why did you respond to the post where I’d just said the two were identical and not the one where I asked the question?

  • LancerEX

    Not sure either. :/ Anyway, I still hope Sony would release the Z1s on time no matter how big or thick it is :P

  • Joshua Hill

    Yes, me too. My SGS2 doesn’t need upgrading but I do want a new phone bad. Too many phones have been released in the last 6 months that weren’t quite right for me. While they’ve had me interested, there have been too many trade offs, lack of battery battery life and awkward size being the more common problems with the flagships launched in the last 6 months.

  • look’s like someone gonna get fired with that leaks lol , still love my z even this is a beast , (darn wallet)

  • LancerEX

    True, I just want a decent sized phone with great camera because flagships are huge and quite expensive. The SP would’ve been my choice but the camera and screen isn’t that good compared to my Xperia ray, though I believe it’s still the best phone from its price point.

  • John Connor

    Please redesign the UI, Now it looks so damn cheap, mess and nothing unique.

  • Kate

    yeah so thick but not cute at all.

  • Ren

    I wonder if the international version will come in the flashy colours that the Japanese version have like the pink and lime colour..i really dig the lime colour

    Why not 4.4 KitKat? :/

  • spade

    LOL at this pic! XD

  • Mohammed Khired

    no , he mean picture no 1,2,3…, especially 1 and 2

    there’s some kind of yellow-ish color in the display , but maybe that just the camera shooting …

    beside , this’s a prototype

  • Evita

    Software for mobile is need time to develop ahead of it time, at this point 4.4 source is not release

  • Brian Byron De Guzman

    comparing it to the background, you can say that the camera white balance is just off..

  • spade

    I mean, out of the box..


    You haven’t understand what i say.

    I don’t mind if it’s carry a
    s800 or s600 or 20/13 mp shooter, 13 mp with a better software rendering
    will do the same against 20 mp(Z).

    I have a nexus 4 (S4 pro) and I don’t see the difference on common usage with the s800 of Z1.

    you look at the front (this one×480.jpg
    ), you can’t seriously say that the front is beatiful. Why do they need
    to make such bezels. I mean if they’ve put a 4.3 inch screen on a 6
    inch body phone, would you say that it’s a 4.3 phone ? no, so same here,
    I think the phone would be as big as my N4 (4.7)

    Get over it. It truly perplexes many of us why you lot are so obsessed with bezel size???? It’s a non-argument. If you’re happy with your Nexus, so be it. Who cares what you like? We are Xperia, not Nexus. But don’t have a lend of yourself thinking you know better than all of us and that your phone is better because of that.

    simple, our lovely little dick troll :)
    bezels are bigger so it can be waterproof, while your just-any-other nexus will never be without them, so sad.

    and yes, it’s beautiful

    Yeah sure…. And again the comment sections incoming “where’s my update”.. Interesting ;)

    i think they should learn a few tricks from the iphone 5c and release more colours. we’ve been having too many black and white phones for too long.

  • Mohammed Khired

    2 mm ? 1mm ? really ?

    respect your opinion , but come on , 1 mm or 1.5 mm won’t make any difference…

    most important thing with xperias is the software not the hardware

  • Michael Hernandez

    Oh God with this group of ignorants!!!!!!!!

    Bezels here, bezels there, bezels here, bezels there…..STFU!

    You and others…still don’t understand why the bezels O_o???

    ^_^ Think a lot….metal armor!!!… The Z1 and the Z1 mini have a metal armor, sony can fit a display until the edges, because the armor need some space to have the joint place between the glass panels and the armor.

    Sometimes, is better have bezel when you use the phone carrying with one hand, because can’t do accidentals actions, touching the edges of the screens ¬_¬, when with a bezel-less display, maybe what you accidentally touch some active area in the edge of the display o_O.

    If you want a cheap-plastic phone, RIP-after-drop, easy to scratch and crush, ok ¬_¬…go ahead with lg, shamesung, ect, buy 10’000 phones if you want ^_^, but…¬_¬ STOP PRAYING BASELESS EXCUSES about the bezels. YOU BORED ME!!!. Do you understand????????????????

    I like the display, design, metal armor, camera, cpu, gpu, simple bloatware-free OS, Microsd slot, x-reality engine, dualshock 3 support, xloud, walkman app, IP58 certification, charging dock, ect…everything of MY “Z1”, because is my own opinion.

    Look what easy is…comment without cheap-excuses ^_^. Try to learn about phones, before comment.

    If you still missunderstanding, here a photo of the armor, enjoy ^_^.

  • dave birney

    they will understand some day when someone finally makes an edge to edge phone and they keep pressing things and sending sms’s by accident when they hold it
