Sony’s Upcoming “Honami” Flagship Pics Leak


Sony has been in headlines recently with the release of their first phablet, the Xperia Z Ultra. Another highly anticipated Sony smartphone has also been rumored to be in development and photos have come up claiming to be the upcoming Sony Honami.


Unlike the Xperia ZU, with its numerous Togari leaks, Sony has done a great job keeping the lid shut on Honami, until now at least.

The Honami is said to sport a 20MP Sony Cybershot CMOS camera sensor with Carl Zeiss lens along with an new camera UI which will be the same as what is currently being used in their cyber shot cameras, as well as both a dual LED and Xenon flash as seen in the picture. It is also speculated to have a 4.88″ 1080p Full HD Triluminous display, finally addressing complaints of their use of TFT displays with terrible viewing angles and washed out colors on the Xperia Z. It will be powered by a 2.33GHz Quad-Core CPU, Adreno 330 GPU, with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset, 2GB of RAM, a non-removable battery with 2700-3000mAh capacity and, wait for it, a dedicated Sony Walkman chip which many believe means the S-Master MX Digital Amplifier will be on the Honami.

From the looks of it, the device will be water resistant as well. And seems like they upgraded the tinny loudspeaker found on the Z as well. The new charging port is similar to the one found in the Xperia Z Ultra and features magnets which allows for easy docking via the new dock.

The handset also features Sony’s Omnibalance design aesthetic. It looks quite like tour average Xperia Z, minus the new charging port, bigger speaker and exposed waterproof headphone jack. If this allegedly Honami shots turn out to be true, then Sony did a great job fitting these monster specs inside a very sleek device.


Here is a recent render of the i1 Honami based on the leaked pics above.
