The new Sony Xperia Z1S looks like a better display, not washed out like the Xperia Z1. colors keep their true tone in the angle. Another awesome product from Sony, looking forward to it! Sony has a habit of making things better on their mid to high end phones and don’t ask me why!
The Sony Xperia Z1S aka Z1 mini, Xperia ZR is also quite capable small flagship, although ZR has 4,55 inch screen and rumored small Z1 has 4,3 inch one. Who knows what the price will be but at least there is a hope that Z1 mini will reduce the price of ZR and as far as everyday usability goes, ZR is more than decent performer.
According to CTechCN, the new Sony Xperia smartphone will have a metal frame like the Z1, specs are unknown at the moment.
For now Sony maybe not the fastest when it comes to updates but they keep getting better each time and starting next month Android 4.3 will be available for 10 Xperia phones. Hopefully carriers wont bog down the release day for these. I’m looking at you T-Mobile and your Xperia Z.
The new Sony Xperia Z1S really looks like the leaked pic of the Xperia Z1 for T-Mobile US, because the headphone placement is the same. Proportions likes button size seems to rule out the possibility of this being a Xperia Z1 Mini.

The Sony Xperia Z Ultra LTE is now on sale for $679.99, Xperia Z1 and SmartWatch 2 for Pre-Order. I believe T-Mobile US will carry the Z1 shortly but that may be HSDPA+, there is an LTE variant C6906 that may work on US LTE bands.
From my conversation with the Sony store, they will be selling the international version if the Z1. so those who want the LTE bands on AT&T and T-mobile in the US should probably wait until those get released.
