Sony Xperia Z1 Compact hits China as Z1 Colorful Edition

15 January, 2014

Sony has announced the Xperia Z1 Compact for China. It will be oddly called Xperia Z1 Colorful Edition instead of Compact, but the rest is pretty much.

The specs of the Xperia Z1 Colorful Edition are similar to those of its global sibling - a 4.3" 720p Triluminos display, a Snapdragon 800 chipset, a 20.7MP camera and IP58-certification for dust and water protection. The Chinese Xperia Z1 Colorful Edition will also run on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, but the KitKat update should arrive soon after the release. The one thing missing in the Chinese Z1 Compact is the LTE support.

Sony is going to launch the Xperia Z1 Colorful Edition in China in late February for CNY 3,999 (€485). It will be available in black, white, lime and pink flavors.
