Sony has seen yet another image leak of a forthcoming device, but as more images leak the mystery as to just where it fits in the portfolio continues to deepen. We have previously reported on a device named the Xperia Z1s appearing briefly on the Sony web site, followed by leaked images of a Sony device apparently headed to international markets and another purportedly showing an Xperia Mini that was thought to be the Z1s. However, sources now think the Xperia Z1s may be a completely different version than the Xperia Mini and may be an updated version of the Xperia Z1.
As hinted at in previous leaked images, the new image clearly reveals the headphone jack relocated to being just off center in the top edge of the device instead of being over close to the side. Based on the angle and relationship of the devices, it appears this new Z1s device is slightly larger than the current Xperia Z1 as well. Meanwhile, we will have to continue the hunt for news about the Xperia Mini as well. Hopefully all of these new devices are ready to be revealed soon by Sony, perhaps at CES 2014.
