Just a few hours before Sony’s official press conference at CES 2014 at 6 Jan, 5 PM Las Vegas; T-Mobile USA Xperia Z1s pic and specs have been leaked by trusted “evleaks”. It is rumored that Sony is about to announce global Xperia Z1 Mini version ( just like Xperia Z1F in Japan ) as Sony D5503 and Xperia Z1s at CES. But after this leak from evleaks it seems that Xperia Z1s is the name of mini version of Xperia Z1 in USA, Is it ?

A lot ago we saw evleaks leaking a pic of Xperia Z1s front panel which is exactly similar to the pic leaked today. Twitter handle of “evleaks” has just tweeted briefly the specifications and a pic of Xperia Z1s which they claim as the Xperia Z1 Mini with a 4.3 inch 720p screen.

First let’s have a look at the leaked pic of T-Mobile USA Xperia Z1s. Do notice the “T-Mobile” branding on the bottom panel of Xperia Z1s.

Recently we saw Sony D5503 speculated as international version of Xperia Z1 F SO-02F passing through FCC which confirmed officially it’s codename as Xperia Amami and running android 4.3 14.2.A.0.144 firmware. While the exact model name of this device is still a mystery. Some call it Xperia Z1S but now it seems Xperia Z1S and Sony D5503 are tow different devices as seen from the images.

Sony’s press conference at CES 2014 is scheduled on 6 Jan 2014 and at that time it is expected that Sony may officially launch Xperia Z1S ( Facelift version of Xperia Z1 ) and Sony D5503 ( aka Xperia Z1 Mini, global version ), in the midst of it just now alleged AnTuTu benchmark scores of both devices have been leaked somehow.

Xperia Z1S is expected as a facelift version of Xperia Z1, when seen in leaked images location of ports and headphone jack was different and even phone was much taller than Xperia Z1. It scores 35485 points on AnTuTu benchmark clearly stating Snapdragon 800 SoC and similar specks like Xperia Z1.

Xperia Amami / Sony D5503 passes on FCC running android 4.3 14.2.A.0.144 firmware

Sony Xperia Amami has just been passed though FCC, well wondering which device is Xperia Amami. Well if rumors are to be believed Sony D5503 model which is speculated as Xperia Z1 Mini whose global model name is still not seen anywhere. There are rumors that Xperia Z1s is the international mini version of Xperia Z1 but if sources are to be believed like the pic leaked by Evleaks, Xperia Z1s may land as LTE version of Xperia Z1 in US which is expected to come out as model number C6916.

On FCC Xperia Amami is seen as 129 x 64.9mm in dimensions as exactly similar to pics of Sony D5503 model where front cam was on extreme right side and sensors on extreme left side. It is also noticed that it is running as android 4.3 14.2.A.0.144 firmware, though many lower builds of that firmware were also seen.

Check the dimension pic of Xperia Amami. Notice the headphone jack position, it is exactly similar to what Sony D5503 model have so it seems Xperia Amami is Sony D5503.

Yesterday Sony D5503 was spotted at Indonesian Postel website, confirming the model number and its existence. A lot many rumors have piled up now over the features of Xperia Z1S from Digi-Wo tipsters where one states that Xperia Z1S may feature IPS Display and one stated that it may not be called as Xperia Z1S.

God knows how many we will see more now, well let’s hope soon Xperia Z1S ( hopefully this is the name ) marks its global international release and Sony get’s its first mini phone globally ( as Xperia Z1F is limited to Japan only ). What do you think guys over the rumored price range of Xperia Z1S.

Xperia Z1S / Sony D5503 Model spotted at Indonesian Postel website

Rumors have caught more fire now, this time Sony D5503 model which is speculated as Xperia Z1S aka Xperia Z1 Mini ( international version of Xperia Z1 and sibling of Xperia Z1F ) has marked its presence on a legit Indonesian Postel website ( FCC equivalent of Indonesia ). It is well-known for outing the names of many Sony Mobile’s new models like Sony C6833 and C6802 appeared in past.

It’s not the first time we have heard of Sony D5503, it was first spotted with its camera picture sample then real pics of Sony D5503 were leaked from all angles confirming the model number and android 4.3 running as 14.2.A.0.205 firmware build.

Check below the certification for Sony D5503 on Indonesian Postel.

Sony D5503 Model appears at Indonesian Postel website

As you can see it is latest updated on 20 November i.e. today, so it definitely proves the existence of Sony D5503 somewhat officially this time but the global model number has not been confirmed yet. As recently we spotted pic of Xperia Z1S on top of Xperia Z1 with an annotation which reads that it may not be called as Xperia Z1S. Lately on Sony Mobile global product page listing of Xperia Z1S was spotted but it was taken soon which confuses again about the branding Xperia Z1S.

Another rumor has sparked which says that Sony D5503 along with Xperia Taichi ( Tianchi ) may be launched on Nov 22 in an event in Shanghai, consider it as 100% rumor now.

Are you excited for Sony D5503, hopefully it is Xperia Z1S and soon we will see the international release of aka Xperia Z1 Mini.

Xperia Amami / Sony D5503 to be called as Xperia Z1S, doubt prevails ?

Just after a day when we saw Xperia Z1S photo snapped beside with Xperia Z1 from a Digi-Wo user, a new speculation has come up whether Sony D5503 will be called as Xperia Z1S or not. The moment when Xperia Z1F saw it’s release in Japan, rumors started about the existence of Xperia Z1S, international version of Xperia Z1F.

A new user on Digi-Wo has posted a fresh pic of Xperia Z1S snapped on top of Xperia Z1, comparing their size but the annotations reads “It is called Xperia Amami right, DoCoMo version Xperia Z1F as SO-02F right, but not Z1S for now“.

Rumor says Chinese version of Xperia Z1S will come as Sony M55H. Check the pic below yourself of Xperia Z1S on top of Xperia Z1. How we can say the below handset is not Xperia Z1F, well look at this another pic of Xperia Z1S with Xperia Z1, it shares some surroundings of spoon, fork and table cloth as it is.

Xperia Amami / Sony D5503 to be called as Xperia Z1S, doubt prevails ?

If it is considered to be true that Sony D5503 is not named as Xperia Z1S then what it is ? What about the recent spotting of Xperia Z1S being listed on Sony Mobile official website for a moment…

Are all these a user’s speculation ? A lot ago we saw EvLeaks leaking a pic of Xperia Z1 mini version, naming it as Xperia Z1S. Well nothing more than that has come up for the existence of Xperia Z1S yet.

We have seen that Sony D5503 do exist but is it also Xperia Z1S or not, we will keep you updated on that. Let us know what do you think…

Thanks Ben 🙂
