Sony has finally revealed its long rumored “Honami mini” smartphone, the Xperia Z1 f. Before Sony announced the Xperia Z1 at IFA 2013, there were rumors swirling around the Internet that Sony would introduce a smaller counterpart, a mini Xperia smartphone, as well. Those rumors proved to be false, but a splash page on Sony’s website quietly unveiled the Xperia Z1 f this week, a smaller smartphone featuring a 4.3-inch display and four color variations — black, white, lime and pink. Other than the compact size, the specs seem to be identical to the Xperia Z1: Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 20.7-megapixel rear camera, 2.2-megapixel front camera, and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. The Xperia Z1 f will be available in late December in Japan, and Sony has not shared any international release plans at this point. Sony’s bizarre promotional video follows below.
