The new Sony Xperia Z1 Compact features the same hardware as its bigger brother, but has an upgrade thrown into the mix: an IPS display is featured on the Xperia Z1 Compact. The new, smaller 4.3-inch smartphone will go on sale next month, with Android 4.3 on-board, with an Android 4.4 KitKat update being made a "few weeks" after its release.
