Sony's Xperia i1 "Honami" Specs Leaked
Continue reading

New leakages have emerged from battleship Xperia , with specs beefing out what we previously knew about the forthcoming Xperia i1 phone, also known under the development name Honami. And also known as a 20-Megapixel whopper.

According to Taiwanese site ePrice , the Xperia i1 features a high-end 20.7-Megapixel ExmorRS camera sensor powered by Sony's Bionz image processing tech, which will be combined with a 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 series chipset and a 5? 1080p display. That'll make it the most impressive smartphone out there by quite a margin, on paper at least.

There's also something called a "Sony G Lens" mentioned on the spec sheet, which may be some sort of optical zoom or image stabilisation system. Or just a pretty new lens. We should see this latest Sony flagship shown off at the beginning of September, when Sony will be demonstrating its new things at the IFA tech show. [ ePrice via Engadget ]
