The Xperia Z1 mini passes through the FCC with codename ‘Amami’

by XB on 12th December 2013

in Rumours, Xperia Z1

Sony Amami_1The mini version of the Sony Xperia Z1 has passed through the FCC revealing very little. There are a few schematics but no pictures of the device, not really an issue as it will probably look almost identical to the Japanese-bound Xperia Z1 f. The documents do confirm the ‘Amami’ codename though and there are a number of references that suggest that this is a European-bound device, pointing to a D5503 model number as seen previously.

A number of software versions are tested including build number 14.2.A.0.144 and 14.2.A.0.78, which means it will release with Android 4.3. The Xperia Z1 and Xperia Z Ultra build number is 14.2.A.0.290, highlighting they are likely using the same software strand. Hopefully, we’re looking at a formal announcement for the Xperia Z1 mini at CES in January 2014.

    Only 2 years? LOL, i’ll be with my phone for 3-5 years, don’t know how some people can change every 6 months or a year, lucky people xD

  • scw

    Same here.

    You won’t catch me trolling. SP will get 4.3, not sure about 4.4, but 4.3 is good enough.

  • Tech Gospel

    Retired my ray with the Xperia P… I still miss the size of the ray though. Still hoping for a similar sized one in the coming years…

  • Tech Gospel

    Hopefully a Google Play Edition will follow shortly… :D

    Amami Haruka???

  • HardyHarHar

    What about battery it states that it’s non replaceable?

  • Itsarapong Intoum

    Agree with HardyHarHar smartphone from sony these day come with embedded battery which can’t replace so easy. I don’t think we can use it more than 2 year.

  • sisore

    Sony, Amami is such a beautiful name, why don’t you just stick with that?

  • shah

    It means “Love me”, in Italian! :)

    The battery doesn’t just die after 2 years haha, the phone just shuts down on its second anniversary lol. Yeah, it won’t be as good as when you first had the phone, but its still decent. Well, decent enough that I can’t afford a new phone and this will have to do.

  • Guest

    Yeah, I know but it’ll still work, might not be as good/long as last but it’s still usable.

    Pictures of Z1S/Z1f/Z1Mini comparision to iPhone 5s, and showing all ports on one side.

  • LancerEX

    Hmm. Is it just me, or the one compared to the gold iP5s lacks a third port. The yellow has three ports on the left side while the gold has only two? :O

  • dave birney

    just looking for the perfect phone, thats why i change twice a year sometimes trying out different phones. id rather not but there is always something not right. i think this might be the one though lol
    it helps buying expensive phones to start with as well because if you look after it you can sell them off after a few months and use that money to buy the next one, maybe adding on a few quid sometimes. its like hiring out a phone really

    Oh riiight I saw the third one. Sony must have done a good job in hiding those ports. :P

  • Bunnie

    great display size but I prefer smaller bezel.

  • pytajnik

    is there a chance that this model will have an OIS? I’m really looking forward for a Sony phone with it.. Z1 really needs it, night shots come out sooo blurry
