There was some confusion when specifications for the Sony Xperia Z1S leaked earlier today. It was believed that it would be a 4.3-inch device that had almost the same specifications as Sony’s flagship Z1; however, that turned out to be the Xperia Z1 Compact. The Z1S is just T-Mobile’s variant of the Z1. While the leaked photo was correct, the specs were meant for the Z1 Compact.
Inside the Z1S is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 processor with 2GB of RAM. The 5-inch display uses Sony’s own TRILUMINOUS technology and underneath it all is a 3000mAh battery. While there are 32GB of storage, a microSD card slot is present to expand the device’s memory. Just like many of Sony’s mobile devices, the Z1S is very durable. It can be put under almost five feet of water for around thirty minutes and it is also dust resistant. On January 13, the Z1S will be available online and T-Mobile will start carrying it on January 22.
