Sony officially launches the Xperia Z1 f SO-02F for NTT DoCoMo

Xperia Z1 f
The Xperia Z1 f or ‘Honami Mini’ as it’s been known throughout various leaks in the leadup to its unveiling has been officially launched by Sony on the Japanese carrier NTT DoCoMo.

The hardware specs appear to match up with those listed in the leaked catalogue that was found in the lead up to the official NTT DoCoMo launch :

  • 4.3″ 1280×720 HD BRAVIA LCD
  • 2.2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SOC
  • 2 GB of RAM
  • 16GB On-board Storage
  • 20.7MP Rear Camera with G Lens and 2.2MP Front-Facing Camera
  • IEEE 802.11 a/​​b/g/N and AC (2.4GHz/5GHz), Bluetooth 4.0
  • Android 4.2.2
  • IP58 Ingress protection – Protected against dust, limited ingress (no harmful deposit)/Protected against long periods of immersion under pressure
  • 2300mAh Battery
  • 127×65×9.4mm @ 140 Grams

The miniaturised version of the Xperia Z1, has finally been able to deliver what all the other ‘Mini’ versions of flagship devices has so far been unable to achieve, a phone with high end specs and seemingly almost no compromises – well the screen resolution is lower due to the size of the screen but apart from that it’s the device many smaller screen afficianados have been calling for, for some time and it’s good to see a company producing a high-end spec device with a smaller screen size in the Android side of things.

The conveniently named Xperia Z1 f SO-02F is available in black, white, lime, and pink but is seemingly exclusive to the NTT DoCoMo network so it’s uncertain whether availability will be expanded beyond their shores. We’ll be following up with Sony Australia for any word on a possible launch of the Z1 f further afield.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

I want this phone bad

It looks too heavy. I would like something with the same weight and form factor as my SGS2.

Well done Sony. Small screen, no compromises. The PPI at 342 is fine by me but will the display maintain color uniformity when viewed from the side?

I hope they sell it outside of Japan. It seems odd that they would go to the expense of designing a complete phone for just one carrier in one country. Unless the carrier is paying them a lot of money, which is possible.

Docomo says it’s an exclusive for their network. And dont forget, the same thing happened last year with the Xperia SX.
