As shown in the picture, there is no home button, all of the buttons are in software. However, you do have the usual power button and a volume rocker.
Of course, one of the big talking points here is the camera on the back. It sports a 20.7 megapixel camera with a 1/2.3-type Exmor RS for mobile CMOS image sensor.
It touts a dust and water resistant OmniBalance design with a durable tempered glass and a one-piece aluminium frame.
In terms of storage, you can get it with up to 16GB of internal storage, but you can expand that with a MicroSD card up to 64GB.
The Xperia Z1 comes with 2.2GHz quad-core CPU, 2GB of RAM, 3000 mAh battery and 4G LTE support.
So what about the operating system on this device? Well, you will get Android Jelly Bean 4.2.
Another feature that I should mention is that the device will be PlayStation certified. This means you will be able to use this with the DualShock 3 PlayStation joypad.
The Xperia Z1 will be available in black, white and purple some time later this month (September 2013) worldwide. No pricing information at this stage for a sim-free, unlocked version. However, here in the UK, EE(AKA Everything Everywhere) has confirmed that they will be offering it for £29.99 on a £41 per month 24 month plan with a free SmartWatch 2.
