After launching Xperia Z1 F in Japan on NTT DoCoMo carrier and officially unveiling Xperia Z1 Compact aka Xperia Z1C at CES 2014 event; Sony China has now officially launched Xperia Z1 Compact aka Xperia Z1 C as Sony M51w in China today. Sony China has although named it as “Xperia Z1 Colorful Edition” as an official name.
