Xperia Z1 f_Sample_2We have got hold of a couple of sample pictures from the newly released Sony Xperia Z1 f (SO-02F), which has just hit Japan. The pictures below are from the retail version which runs Android 4.2.2 and firmware build 14.1.H.1.281. The Xperia Z1 f runs the same hardware as the Xperia Z1, including the same chipset and 20.7MP Exmor RS camera. Therefore, in reality, you shouldn’t notice much of a difference. Have a look below and let us know what you think.

  • digitalteddybear

    Yep… 19 is finished. Let’s hope for good news tomorrow.

  • JHMBB2

    Old Japanese man coughing doesn’t know that world now knows him. ha! I’m not a fan of these photos though, pretty bad quality. The first photo is just terrible.

  • Gitarooman

    sony camera shines in the right hands, even for the old Z. True story.

  • AA

    Lots of smearing in the images but tolerable for a phone.

  • wew901

    New version of Album 5.3.A.0.22 released on
    my Xperia L 4.2.2. It’s propably just a bug fixing update.

  • mitami

    Yup. Same here. 5 more days till xmas, I just hope they’ll release it before xmas..

  • Album

    I got album update..

  • album

    How can i create new album..I dont wanna review my picture with date..i want review with my own album..Hope u understand ..english no good..

  • Farai Chiwandire

    They look great in the current state. Zoom in however and it all falls apart like a house of cards. Digital zoom is a nightmare but even 20MP can’t save these pics from the dreaded zoom effect.

  • Louis Chan

    Yes.. Please Sony Xperia.. Can we review our Albums like how Samsung can create new albums in their stock album app.

    It would be really organised that we can do this! Really appreciated from a Sony user for 6 Years. :)

  • Mouli Chandran

    Ya, I aslo like tat, but still now no news for 4.3

  • Tech Gospel

    I’m checking every 10 min to see for the global Z1f release!!!! Hahahahaha!

  • pain six path

    Unfortunately they’re in 8 mp mode,,but still their quality is excellent.

  • Cezary280

    On Xperia Z from Poland is also update of Album app.

  • sisore

    un-zoomed: Meh, average.
    after-zoomed: OMG that’s so good!

  • Anukul

    !!! sony’s sensors are used in sgs3 ,sgs4 ,note2 ,note3 ,iphone5 ,iphone5s, LG’s G2 so get your facts right first

  • vigneshprince

    Me too! been here often but…… when will Sony release the update?

  • Update?

    Why is everyone so looking forward to 4.3 anyways? There isn’t really much of any ground breaking improvements to look forward to =/

  • Raso

    WOW, I never knew how ugly tokyo is.

  • Assa7in King

    OMG ? These pics are owsem !!!! GUYS chk out the detail its better than the Z1 right ?

  • Mehh~

    Optics wise, it still looks the same IMHO. Decently sharp in the center but really soft in the corners…

    Sony NW-ZX1 / 35th Walkman Anniversary model

    Kom precis direkt från Japan!
    Stor skillnad på ljudkvalitén jämfört med senaste Sony telefonerna…

    Kör Android 4.1

  • boosook

    LOL… ugly? One of the most exciting cities in the world, filled with wonderful modern architecture as well as old-style temples and wonderful japanese-style gardens? Obviously, you’ve never been there. Though, of course, it’s not as beatiful as Kyoto, at least for the average tourist.

  • sisore

    Any review and clue about it’s price?

  • djabag

    576EUR from Japan and it was just released on 7th of December.
    Worth every penny if you ask me. More info=goggle!
    Super old school Sony built quality!!

  • Vlad

    as an embedded system professional I’m saying to you: camera=sensor+processing hardware+processing software+user interface software; as long as the only one/two parts of the sum above are good and the others are bad, I cannot consider the Sony camera good enough, sorry;
    nevertheless these photos are good; if they improved the image processing then I’m much more satisfied

  • Anukul

    go check out sony a7r

  • jd evora

    Yep, but the “4.3” I looking for is the screen size of the Z1f for the international market ;-)

  • Gitarooman

    a lot of pro said a lot of things, I have seen some pretty impressive results with Z1 or even the Z with pro photographers, if those even exist that means its possible.

  • Chris

    Updated in China for my Z1, but Play Memories disappeared

  • arcu de triumf

    I must say, good move finally after 10s of models. The contrast is better, the noise is much lower, so I guess finally they got it. That’s more like Sony quality level that we all expected from the beginning.

  • pytajnik

    sure, sure… and the final version will be as terrible as z1.

  • xperiafan324

    Newer firmware, better photographer :p

  • xperiafan324

    Sony updated the Z1 jpeg algorithm a few updates ago. Did a brilliant upgrade to the image quality, these are probably from the Z1 f running on that newer firmware.

  • arcu de triumf

    Good job.

  • jake

    “as an embedded system professional I’m …….”
    “i am staff engineer with 200 people under me……..”
    why do everyone use this kind of sentence rather than a real debate point to support their opinion ?

  • Vlad

    because there are a lot that don’t even know how to write a 2-word sentence in English and what Android means and they start to express their feelings regarding anything around; knowledge before opinion is better than the other way around

  • Gordon

    Right. And it’s the very special secret of Sony why their own phones simply _suck_ when it comes to taking pictures. The above images don’t impress me a second, same problems as _always_ with Sony: Look at the smeary watercolor-like leaves of the tree, or the board right to the flag on the left side (both in bottom image).
    Ugly, just ugly. Period.

  • Anukul

    no! :D

    Can’t add any comment here. Testing.

  • Jaywalker

    It’s working :D So, I must say finally Sony got it. Much better contrast, less noise, this is more like Sony quality level. Long time but anyway, better late than never. This is what we all expected.

  • arcu de triumf

    Yes. That’s more like it.
