Not even two days have passed since photos of the Sony Honami, aka Xperia i1, leaked to the web, and the device popped up on the radar again. What we have this time is a set of press shots from the leaked system dump of Sony’s upcoming flagship smartphone. While nowhere in the pictures you can see the name of the device, there are a few telltale signs that make us believe that indeed it is the Honami we are looking at.
Sony Honami to be unveiled next week in Paris
First of all, the overall design fits perfectly with previously leaked images. You can clearly see the on/off switch, the volume rocker, and the dedicated camera button which is believed to be present in the Honami.
Another evidence is one of the photos showing camera in action, which suggests that the device will focus on photographic experience. You may have heard that the Sony Honami is also referred to a camera-phone.
Finally, the Eiffel tower displayed on the phone’s screen together with a map of Paris clearly hint that the handset has something to do with France. The Honami is expected to be announced at Sony’s special event in Paris on July 4th.
The Sony Honami, also known as Xperia i1, is rumored to come with a 20-megapixel camera an Exmor RS sensor, G Lens, Cybershot, dual LED and Xenon flash, Mobile BIONZ Image processing and interchangeable lens. The phone will supposedly pack a 5-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080) display, and a quad-core 2.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor with Adreno 330 GPU. Other features include 2 GB of RAM and a battery with capacity between 2,700 and 3,000 mAh.
