A couple of weeks ago we got to look at a terminal dubbed Sony Xperia Z1 f which was basically that Xperia Z1 Mini everybody is talking about. The smaller version of Sony’s current Android flagship leaked through an NTT DoCoMo brochure and today we get to see it again, along with a new Samsung smartphone, inside another similar document issued by Japanese carrier.
The folks at Japanese blog RBMen, quoted by Android Central, are to held responsible by the new NTT DoCoMo brochure leak. The new Xperia Z1 f (codenamed “Itsuki”) information only comes to confirm what the rumor mill already speculated: that its internal hardware will be almost identical with the one of the Xperia Z1.
Summing up the Sony Xperia Z1 f will be powered by a Snapdragon 800 chipset with quad-core 2.2 GHz Krait 400 CPU and Adreno 330 GPU, 2 GB of RAM, 20.7 MP camera with Sony G Lens, and IP58 certification, which means it’s both water and dust resistant. The only difference is that the screen has been will be a 4.3-inch unit with 720p resolution.
NTT DoCoMo brochure also revealed details about the a Samsung Galaxy J smartphone, which will most likely a Snapdragon 800-powered Galaxy S4 variant intended for the Japanese market. Still, the design is a bit different from the one of the current Samsung Galaxy S4, but most of the specs have been improved. Galaxy J also packs 3 GB of RAM and it will be available in coral pink, satin white, and lapis blue body liveries, according to the same leaked document.
Summing up, the Samsung Galaxy J is like the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3 fell in love and had a baby.
For the time being it’s not clear whether the Galaxy J will be a global device or whether it it’s a mode that will only see the light of day on the Japanese market. Personally, I would go for the latter option.
