New render emerges claiming to be the rumored 'Honami' with specs in line with earlier reports
As is so often the way with new Sony phones, we're treated to plenty of leaks well ahead of any actual launch, and the rumored 'Honami' is no exception. The latest leak comes by way of ePrice and claims to be a press render of the forthcoming high-end Xperia smartphone. In terms of appearance, it looks pretty much in line with the earlier leaked images we've seen.
Accompanying the image, ePrice also has a bunch of purported specs, the majority of which also fit well in line with previous leaks. A 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800, 2GB of RAM, 16GB on-board storage with microSD card expansion, a 5-inch 1080p display with Sony's Triluminos technology and a 3000mAh battery. We're also hearing about a Sony G-Lens for the 20.7MP rear camera, and a BIONZ image processing engine.
At this point in time, it looks like the 'Honami' will come to town with a heavy focus on photography. It would be in good company too with recent devices from Nokia and Samsung both having serious photography aimed credentials. At this point in time, we're anticipating that Sony's September 4 press conference at IFA 2013 in Berlin may well be the first time we get official word, and of course, we'll be on the ground in Germany if and when we get to see it.
