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.

Let us know what do you think on this matter of speculated model numbers.

Xperia Z1 Mini snapped beside Xperia Z1 pic leaks – Rumored CES 2014 Launch

Xperia Z1 has been officially unveiled at IFA 2013 Berlin and it was exactly same as all the leaks depicted before its official launch. Xperia Z1 is insanely powerful but what users were also expecting that “Xperia Z1 Mini” aka “Xperia Honami Mini”  will also launch at IFA 2013 but that wasn’t the case.

Not very much credible info has been posted in leaks of Xperia Z1 Mini, but this sometime something very clear has been popped up for Xperia Z1 Mini.

  • 8 GB internal memory.
  • Snapdragon 800 Quad core processor.
  • F 2.0 Sony’s “G” Lens in camera in same 20.7 MP cam

Note : It is not clear that how much credible above specifications of Xperia Z1 Mini are but the pic of Xperia Z1 Mini very clearly says about it’s design. Above pic can be a photoshopped material also, but something is really cooking at Sony’s camp in “Mini” version.

Xperia Z1 Mini is rumored to be launched during CES 2014 Event like in CES 2013 we saw Sony launching Xperia Z. Till now only this much we have on Xperia Z1 Mini, if anything else pops up we will let you know.
