Sony Xperia Z1 Honami Released at IFA Berlin 2013

The Sony Xperia Z1 Honami was released at IFA Berlin and George Buhnici, the TV presenter from iLike IT Romania was there to give us a hands-on review. And we can tell you that Sony wants their new smartphone to be the biggest and the best cameraphone to carry Android. The device is only 8,5 mm thick, but has a 1/2.3″ sensor (about 70% bigger than other smartphones available on the market at this time). The device will hit the market this month and it will be available in black, white and purple color schemes. The presentation video is amazing, but we’ll show it to you later.
Let’s talk about the specs a little bit first. Be sure you’re sitting down, because what you’ll read next will blow your mind. The device seems to have gathered each of the best from Sony. Coming with a 20,7 MP camera, which allows you to take pictures in movement, a great optical zoom and a 5 inch display at 1080p, the Sony Xperia Z1 Honami will be perfect for taking pictures. It also comes with the newest Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core 2,2GHz processor. It will also feature G Lens Technology and hold a 3000 mAh battery.


The device is 4G, comes with WiFi and NFC and the display uses the same technologies as the Sony Bravia TV sets – the Triluminos and the X-Realitythe.

Other features of the Sony Xperia Z1 Honami are:

  • Size: 144 x 74 x 8.5mm
  • Weight: 170g

We don’t know how much it’ll cost, but we are eager to get our hands on a piece.
