An XDA developers forum member has posted a blurry photo, showing what is believed to be the Sony XPERIA Z1 Mini, mini version of the XPERIA Z1 (codenamed Honami). It is shown beside the Blackberry Q10. Does the photo show the real deal or a hoax?

According to PhoneArena, “Over at XDA developers forum, someone posted a blurry photo of what is alleged to be the Sony Xperia Z1 mini next to a BlackBerry Q10. The problem is that the photo’s blurry look might have been done on purpose to disguise the fact that the phone on the right is not the Xperia Z1 mini. What we would like to believe is that with an overweight security guard breathing down his neck, the photographer didn't have time to focus before taking the shot. There are quite a few who see the phone on the right as being the Sony Xperia Z. But a quick look at the dimensions of both the Sony Xperia Z (139 x 71 x 7.9 mm) and the BlackBerry Q10 (119.6 x 66.8 x 10.35 mm) show that the Xperia Z is longer and wider than its ‘Berry counterpart, which is not true in the picture. Unless the photo was doctored in some way, this could very well be the Sony Xperia Z1 mini. Or, for old time's sake, the Sony Honami mini.”
