T-Mobile Sony Xperia Z1S Review

T-Mobile Sony Xperia Z1S Review

To say that Sony is participating in the current “if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it” trend would be an understatement if you’ve been keeping track of their hero Xperia smartphone lineup. In the Xperia Z1S, we’ve got essentially the same build as in the internationally-aimed Xperia Z1, here coming to T-Mobile with the carrier’s Uncarrier plans attached, and just as much power as the original. In other words - if you liked the Xperia Z and were looking forward to the just that-much-better Xperia Z1 “Honami”, this is your winning ticket.

Sony aims to cut down on “leakage” of prototype handsets

Leaks are common, and provide details and looks at what companies are up to before they get around to officially showing off their goods. Sony in particular experienced quite a few leaks this year, particularly of its Xperia Z1 "Honami" smartphone, so much so that the eventual unveiling revealed little that we didn't already know. The device maker is trying to reduce this problem, posting device rules around one of its offices.

Sony Xperia Z1 specifications leak in full

Sony Xperia Z1 specifications leak in full

It would appear that Sony's notoriously unlucky streak of leaking the ins and outs of the smartphone known as the Xperia Z1 have reached their height with no less than a full press release leak just one day before it's scheduled to go live. Straight from Xperia Blog comes this gush of information (the screenshot of which we'll not be sharing simply because it's the same info we're about to recount) including a Sony G Lens on the back of this smartphone with 27mm wide angle and bright F2.0 aperture. The camera on this device (on the back, again,) also works with a 1/2.3-inch 20.7MP Exmor RSCMOS image sensor - so you know you're going to be meaning business when this device is snapping shots.

Sony QX Lens Cameras work without smartphone aid

Sony QX Lens Cameras work without smartphone aid

Though we've seen the Sony "Lens Camera" devices appear connected to smartphones before, today a set of press photos suggests that the user might be able to use these devices without a companion smart unit at all. Where before we'd assumed that it was the smartphone - or tablet - that allowed a Sony Lens Camera to be controlled, today a set of photos that very much appear to be press-quality (aka real from Sony, more than likely) show a couple of users working with these devices without being physically attached to the smartphone in hand.

There's a device out there in the wild by the name of Honami - code-named by Sony for their next-generation follow-up to the Sony Xperia Z, complete with specifications made to out-do the previous model. This device appears today in a series of hands-on photos snapped by an intrepid Sony even-goer in China. These images have subsequently been deleted by said user, suggesting therefor that they should not have been captured in the first place.

Sony Lens Cameras teased: attaching to all, from Xperia to iPhone

As tipped all the way back near the middle of July, Sony's Lens Cameras (DSC-QX10 and DSC-QX100) once again appear to be upon us. These cameras are appearing in press images this afternoon courtesy of Sony Alpha Rumors both on their own and attached to the Sony Xperia Z and Sony Xperia i1, aka Honami. The DSC-QX10 as well as the DSC-QX100 will be working only when working with a Sony smartphone, meaning they've got their own hardware inside not normally found in the body of a replaceable lens system.
