Rumored Sony Xperia ‘Honami’ smartphone appears in official teaser ahead of Sept. 4 event


A couple images allegedly showing an upcoming Sony smartphone codenamed Honami have been showing up in recent weeks. Honami, aka the Xperia i1, might have just made its first official appearance ahead of a Sony press even scheduled for September 4th in Berlin with the company posting the above teaser image to its Google+ page (via Engadget). There is still no confirmation from Sony that this is indeed the 5-inch device that we’ve been hearing about, but from what we can see the image does seem to line up with earlier leaks. Other specs that have been rumored for Honami include a 20 megapixel camera, 1080p display, and Snapdragon 800 processor. Judging by the image above and the accompanying “Have we captured your attention yet?” tagline, Sony will likely spend a lot of time focusing on the rumored 20 megapixel camera when it finally unveils the device. We’ll be on hand early next month to bring you all the official details.
