Announced at this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact  squeezes everything that's featured in the flagship 5-inch Xperia Z1 into a smaller package.

The Z1 Compact is roughly the same size as Apple's iPhone 5s and 5c and is being promoted as a premium product. Unlike smartphones such as Samsung's S4 mini and the HTC One mini, both of which have much lower specs than the flagship models, the Z1 Compact has not compromised on features.

Like the Z1, the Z1 Compact is dust and waterproof, it features a 20.7MP camera, 2MP front camera, 2GB RAM, and 16GB onboard storage. It also has a bright, HD screen, a powerful 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor and will run Android 4.3 (Jelly Bean).
