Sony have been teasing the long awaited Honami (i1) handset ahead of its expected IFA reveal on September 4th in Berlin.
The Official Sony Xperia twitter page has launched a #BestOfSony campaign, tweeting three pictures of what’s believed to be the upcoming handset – there’s a look at the power button, and there’s a shot of the phone under water – which whilst presumably intended to highlight the phone’s water-resistance, also gives us a good idea of the handset’s full scale and exterior layout.
Perhaps most exciting though, is the picture of the phone’s camera arrangement – indicating the Honami’s use of Sony’s premium “G lens” and an LED flash, which when combined with the rumoured 1/2.3″ sensor will mean the 20.7mp camera will undoubtedly produce some simply stunning images.
Currently, alongside the 20.7mp rear camera, the Honami i1 is thought to be housing a 5-inch 1920×1080 Gorilla Glass display, a 2mp front facing camera, 16GB of internal storage, LTE connectivity, a 3100mAh battery, IR controls, and dual stereo speakers. Phew.
The handset will reportedly be powered by 2GHz of RAM and a 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor running Android OS 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean).
A video of the phone’s also appeared on YouTube, so check that out below:
There’s probably a few more teases to come from Sony Mobile prior to an official announcement of their next flagship in a week or so’s time. I’ll keep you posted!
