Courtesy of some leaked pics, we have apparent confirmation of the Sony Honami’s 20MP rear shooter.
If you squint at the left of the pic above, you might just be able to make out XX.XMP beside the camera lens on the purported Sony Honami. That brings to mind the XXMP found on the Nokia EOS camera cover before it officially launched as the Lumia 1020.
Look on the right, however, and the Sony Honami software confirms a rear camera resolution of 5248 x 3936 pixels, which is 20,656,128 (thanks, calculator), or 20MP. Heck, 20.7MP, even.
Other rumoured Sony Honami specs include a 5in 1080p display (same on paper as the Sony Xperia Z), quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor (as found in the Sony Xperia Z Ultra), 2MP front camera, 2GB of RAM, and – thankfully – a microSD slot to expand upon the base 16GB.
You can also expect a 3,000mAh battery, NFC (Near Field Communication), and IPX5/7 waterproof certification.
The Sony Honami is widely expected to launch as the Sony Xperia i1 at IFA 2013 in Berlin next month, alongside the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. That’s two more phones of interest than Barcelona’s Mobile World Congress managed this year.
