Sony Tease Honami i1 Ahead Of IFA Reveal

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!
