Until the parent company comes up with the official confirmation, the rumour would be considered pure speculation only.

The international Xperia Z Mini variant is also speculated a house a feature-rich 20.7-megapixel camera. It is said to boast of Sony's exclusive patented technology - G-Lens, BIONZ image processor and Exmor RS sensor which are usually seen inside the expensive DSLR camera.

Sony has confirmed to release region specific model Xperia Z1 f (SO-02f) aka Xperia Z1 Mini through network carrier NTT Docomo in Japan next month.

Rumour has it that the global variant may soon get launched in Ukraine soon.
