Sony Xperia i1 Honami: 20 MP Camera on Jelly Bean 4.2 based Smartphone

Do you think that the HTC One has the greatest camera that has been equipped on an Android 4.2 based smartphone? Well, that’s right at least for now as Sony is preparing a new flagship that according to the Brazilian site, Techtudo will be coming with a 20 MP rear facing camera. Pretty impressive especially if you consider that the same will be ported on a 5 inch display, though we might say that this camera would have been more suitable on the recently announced Sony Xperia Z Ultra – which is featuring a 6.4 inch display.

Unfortunately there aren’t important aspects revealed, so we can only mention a few info about this new high end JB 4.2 based device. It seems that the Xperia i1 Honami will be equipped with high end specs and features, though considering the 20 MP camera I might say that probably Sony will go for a mid-range handset for aiming the budget friendly market. But so far there are only rumors, it’s hard to predict something when you have so limited details.

Anyhow, in the image from above you can see the Cyber-Shot Xperia i1 Honami alongside the Xperia Z Ultra and Xperia Z; apparently the handset will be featuring a 5 inch (or bigger) display with a glass-backed design. Of course we have the already mentioned 20 MP rear facing camera and the Android OS, with Jelly Bean 4.2 pre-installed.

The Honami release date is rumored to be sometime during Q3, so the exact launch date isn’t provided. From what we know, the device is still in testing and developing stage so who knows when the official press release will be revealed. Anyway, until further aspects, this is all we could find out; don’t rely too much on the mentioned lines as after all, these are only rumors.
