Xperia Z1 Compact UK Availability

Sony Xperia Z1 Compact UK availability (delivery) begins on January 31st.

Hot of the heels of Sony announcing their new Xperia Z1 compact yesterday, UK retailer Phones4U were quick to score exclusivity over the device in the UK.

The 4.3 inch device which was announced during Sony’s keynote yesterday at CES 2014 will come with such delights as; a 20.7 megapixel rear facing  and a 2.2 megapixel front facing camera, a Quallcomm quad-core processor clocked at 2.2 GHz, helped along by 2GB of RAM.

The Xperia Z1 Compact only comes in one flavour of 16GB but is expandable to 64GB via the microSD slot, you’ll also find Android 4.3 Jelly bean inside, with no word quite yet on Sony’s plans to upgrade the device to 4.4. The compact also has the same water proof qualities we’ve come to expect on Sony smartphones with it being safe to take it for a dunk in fresh water up to 1.5 metres deep for 30 minutes, drop it in salt water though and you’re in the same boat as any other smartphone user.

The Z1 Compact will be available on EE, Vodafone and Orange in the UK on plans starting at £29 per month for 24 months.
