Sony Honami specs leaked ahead of official launch

Sony Honami specs leaked ahead of official launchYou’re all familiar with the 5in Sony Xperia Z and the 6.4in Sony Xperia Z Ultra, right? The third cog in Sony’s smartphone flagship wheel is the Sony Honami (random girl called Honami (EDIT: no longer) pictured on the left), which puts the focus on camera smarts.

The phone is largely expected to launch at IFA in Berlin along with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, and in the meantime, we’re getting a peek at a purported Sony Honami spec sheet.

The Sony Xperia Z has a 13MP rear camera, while the Sony Xperia Z Ultra settles for 8MP picture-taking action. The Sony Honami, however, is tipped to rock a 20.7MP ExmorRS sensor.

Other Sony Honami specs are thought to include a 5in 1080p display, 2MP front camera, quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.2GHz, 2GB of RAM, and a microSD slot to expand on the base 16GB internal storage.

There’s also NFC compatibility, a meaty 3,000mAh battery, and IPX5/7 waterproof certification.

As for its commercial name, the Sony Honami is expected to launch as the Sony Xperia i1, which – unsurprisingly – makes little to no sense. Ah well.

IFA 2013 gets underway on September 6, which is something like seven weeks on Friday. ‘Citing.

Lewis, why do you always post pictures of ladies whenever you talk about phones?

I just do what Google Images tells me.

You're in luck though; I managed to find a pic of the phone.

Was waiting for this phone based on a possible launch even in Paris on the 4h July however nothing was launched. Now, waiting till september seems a long way off. I only say this as the Ultra Z has been launched but isn't released to the public... so a September launch could mean christmas for being able to buy the thing.

Even the new Nokia 1020 is rumoured to be launched in the UK in September dispite end of July elsewhere.

I think I'll end up going with a standard Xperia Z at the end of August at this rate.

if this is true, and that's an actual camera button i spy, then this could be very interesting to me.
