In addition, the Sony Xperia Z1 f also packs a 2300 mAh battery and has been rated as a water and dust-resistant smartphone. The Sony Xperia Z1 f may also go against the iPhone 5C in terms of offering more colour options, as the brochure snapshots four colours, black, white, red, and yellow.

The most discouraging news for those would have to be that the targeted release, because for now, the Sony Xperia Z1 f is expected to hit only Japanese retails unless Sony announces otherwise.
Lenovo is trying to break free from people's notion that the brand can only deliver low-margin smartphones. And in this attempt to get back on the high-end side of smartphones, it has unveiled two devices.
The Vibe Z, slated to be the successor to the K900, sports a metal body, 5.5-inch display, a 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset, 2GB of RAM, and a 13-megapixel rear and a 5-megapixel front camera. Phone Arena reports that the price and release date was not yet announced for the Vibe Z.
As for the Lenovo Vibe X, you will be coming in knowing that it will be sold at $474 and headed to the market on October 20, at least for the Chinese market. The device is slightly smaller, sporting only a 5-inch 1080p display, a 1.5GHz MediaTek MT6589T quad-core, a 13-megapixel rear and a 5-megapixel front camera.
Considering that the Lenovo Vibe X is already at a fairly lower price with specs that are almost similar to the Vibe Z, Lenovo may do well to keep the latter device as affordable as possible, so it will find a better market in the West.
Even before the iPhone 5S has been officially revealed, the iPad 5 has been seen in glimpses, as some of the videos feature about the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C had given a taste of the iPad 5's cover.
This time, the iPad 5 takes the spotlight for itself as a new video emerges comparing the Apple's latest iDevice with the iPad 4 and iPad Mini. Previous reports have put a new colour option, space gray, for the iPad 5.
In this new video, you can see just how thinner, lighter, and narrower the new design will be, so you can see if it's worth the buy once it comes out for the expected unveiling and release date this October.
The video from SWwebmaster shows off the space gray model, and as far as size goes, it has been trimmed down in both width and length to 169.50mm and 239.20mm respectively. Aside from this, there are a few minor tweaks in the overall hardware, including a new microphone hole at the back, speaker placement adapting to the iPad Mini, and the volume button being in two pieces.
