"The best of Sony is about to get even better"

It's not like we haven't already had a pretty good look at the Xperia Z1 (or "Honami") thanks to a spate of pre-release leaks, but this morning Sony's taken things a step further with a preview of — well, essentially the entire device.

A new teaser video shows a device similar in design to the original Xperia Z, with a Sony "G"-branded rear camera, a physical camera button and waterproof credentials, before stating "The best of Sony is about to get even better."

In a tweet linking to the video, the official Sony Xperia Twitter account said, "3...2....what comes next?," which suggests that the rumored Z1 name could be right on the money. Purported specs include a Snapdragon 800 CPU, 2GB of RAM, a 20-megapixel rear camera with Sony G Lens and a five-plus-inch screen.

We're almost certain to see the the Xperia Z1 unveiled on Sept. 4 at Sony's pre-IFA press conference, but between this trailer and the various pre-release leaks, there might not be too much we haven't already seen.
