Sony Honami “Xperia i1” is the latest Android Flagship smartphone from Sony and might be announced on September 4th in Berlin, Deuschland, and come in an unconventional purple case. The phone will have premium grade glass over the lens for clearer and crisp images, and in the photos leaked until now, we can only see the front of the device or a black or white back cover, so we can’t tell for sure what the colors will be in the end. The Honami is also known as Xperia i1. Although some specs (which we’ll talk about later on) are already rumored, we’ll have to wait for Sony’s official announcement to find out exactly what the deal is with this mysterious device.
If it were for us to take our source‘s word, the Honami is featuring a 20 Megapixel Exmor R camera, which comes with a 1/1.6 sensor and Xenon flash. The Xenon dual-LED flash will be offering 10x the brightness of any other smartphone for stunning low-light photography. The device is also said to come with an 8 megapixel front-facing camera. The Sony Honami will likely be water and dust resistant, because of an IP57 certification. There are also rumors of the camera having a Superior Auto and Manual modes, which has been seen on other Sony handsets as well.
Other specs include a Qualcomm 2.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 chip and 2 GB of RAM, a 5.0-inch full HD display with a 1920×1080 resolution and Bravia technology with a 3,000 mAh battery. The device is said to run Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and will be 10 mm thick. The Sony Honami will probably be announced right before the IFA trade show, and on the same date Samsung is speculated to unveil its Galaxy Note III. Maybe the company will unveil official features until then, or maybe not, but it’s not so long to wait, right?
