Matches earlier leaked renders, looks a lot like a refresh to the Xperia Z
At this point we're somewhat used to new Sony devices leaking out ahead of their launch, and Sony's next big device, codenamed Honami, is no exception. Following earlier leaked renders, some pretty clear photographs have emerged claiming to be Honami, and they show a device that looks as though it could be a refresh to the Xperia Z line.
The overall form factor is very similar to the Xperia Z, with the same external skeleton frame we've seen before, only colored to match the device. The back looks to possibly be glass again, and that rumored 20MP camera sits up in the top left as we've seen before. Down on the bottom edge of the device there's what looks to be a pretty hefty speaker, and round the front it looks pretty much the same as other Sony smartphones.
Other rumors state that inside the Honami is a Snapdragon 800, 2GB of RAM, a 3000mAh battery, all sitting beneath a 5-inch, 1080p Triluminos displays. At this point none of the alleged specs are unlikely, and all that remains now is for it to finally launch. We're expecting our first look at the Honami at Sony's September 4 press conference in Berlin at IFA, where of course we'll be on the ground throughout. Hit up the links below for more images.
