    Rumours: Sony Xperia Z1 Mini to have smaller size but same specs?

    While we're still deciding if it's going to be called the Sony Xperia Z1 or Sony i1 Honami, rumours have come out that Sony are already preparing a Mini version of their rumoured cameraphone. While it will be packing a smaller 4.3-inch screen and 2400 mAh battery because of the smaller form factor, rumours indicate that everything else could be exactly the same with the bigger Sony Xperia Z1. This means that the tech specs for the Sony Xperia Z1 Mini or Sony i1 Honami Mini could include:

    • Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor
    • 2GB RAM
    • 16GB storage + microSD
    • 4.3-inch display
    • 20MP camera (Sony G lens, f/2.0 aperture)
    • 2400 mAh battery
  • Rumours: Sony Honami to be called Sony Xperia Z1, press shots appear?

    A number of rumours surrounding Sony's upcoming cameraphone, the Sony i1 Honami have surfaced and these include the fact that it may be called the Sony Xperia Z1 instead. Some rather low-resolution renders have appeared showing off the cameraphone in Black, Purple and White along with sample photos which confirm the 20.7MP camera sensor inside. Other rumours indicate that the phone's camera can also record 4K video and will come with Xenon and LED dual flash. Still no news about price or availability for Malaysia and as with all rumours do take these with a pinch of salt as it could very well be another unknown cameraphone waiting to be revealed.

    Sony's upcoming cameraphone, the Sony i1 Honami supposedly got benchmarked with these scores appearing on AnTuTu with an impressive score of 30625. The benchmark seems to confirm at least two things about the cameraphone and this includes the fact that it may be called the Sony Xperia Z1 instead. It also confirms that the phone will be powered by a Snapdragon 800 processor as you generally get these types of scores with this processor. Still no news about price or availability for Malaysia and as with all rumours do take these with a pinch of salt as AnTuTu benchmarks have been known to be false before.

    Rumours: New Sony i1 Honami Leaked Images and UI Appear

    Sony's upcoming cameraphone, the Sony i1 Honami has recently appeared in a number of leaked images. The first set of images look to be press shots of the smartphone. These press shots show what look to be international versions along with one set for NTT Docomo which is a carrier in Japan. The press images only show the front though with no indication of how the back looks like, perhaps to keep the camera part under wraps.

    Rumours: Sony i1 Honami Image Leaks

    After the recent reveal of the Sony Xperia Z Ultra, many of us were wondering when the other rumoured Sony smartphone would be coming out. This is of course referring to the Sony i1 Honami or better known as Sony's cameraphone. A number of leaks have appeared in various sites showing off images of what could be the upcoming Sony i1 Honami cameraphone. However, while the images do seem to match, the overall camera placement seems a bit off for it to have interchangable lens. We're still wondering how Sony are going to fit in a 20MP sensor inside such a thin chassis but since this is Sony, anything is possible. The lack of camera hump may also suggest that these aren't images of the Honami but of some other impending Sony smartphone. As luck would have it, Sony is rumoured to be having another event soon on 4 July 2013. We'll see then, but for now, take a look at the leaked pics.
