Japan’s NTT DoCoMo will be announcing new devices on the 10th of October, and it looks like one of the new handsets that be appear at the event will be the Sony Xperia Z1 Mini.
The Sony Xperia Z1 Mini will come with similar specifications to the Z1, although it will feature a smaller 4.3 inch HD display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels.
The Xperia Z1 Mini will come with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean out of the box, the handset will be powered by a quad core 22Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and will also feature 2GB of RAM.
