Sony Xperia Z1 Compact


Sony Xperia Z1 Compact

Sony has released a slimmed-down version of its Xperia Z1 mobile phone, to appeal to customers that want all the power but in a smaller package.

It brings all the good bits from the original handset including the quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM and 20.7-megapixel camera. The smartphone will be available for a competitive price of £450 without any contract, meaning it is cheaper than Apple's budget-friendly iPhone 5C.

Although not all information has been published about who will be stocking the device and which markets it will head to, a number of UK retailers have made their intentions known. 

Fans can expect to see the smartphone arriving on their shelves at some point next month, though a precise date hasn't been made clear.

O2 confirmed on Twitter that it will be stocking the device, but no word was given on what tariffs it will offer or a release date.
