A few alleged press shots of the Sony i1 Honami cameraphone have leaked out on ePrice, and they pretty much mimic the pressers that were leaked to an Xperia blog recently.
The Honami, it seems, won’t have bulky camera protrusion on the back, like the Lumia 1020, but then again, judging from the accompanying sensor specs, it won’t be as advanced as a cameraphone either, but will have the advantage of running Android and being slim, so these two are geared to different customer bases.
The source regurgitates all the leaked specs so far, like a 5″ Full HD Triluminous display, 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 800 chipset, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of memory plus a card slot, IP57 watertight certification, and a 3000 mAh battery.
We are now learning that the aspheric tech will go as Sony Lens G, with 20.7 MP 1/2.3 camera sensor, and a dedicated BIONZ ISP. The sensor size is somewhat of a disappointment given what Nokia churned out, but let’s not forget that the i1 Honami stuffs it all in an eventual 144 x 73.9 x 8.3 mm thin body, coming in white, black and purple. It would not be on par with the Lumia 1020, but should give the current Android camera king the Galaxy S4 a run for its money, so we can’t wait for the first samples to trickle down.
