So we know that the Xperia ZU is coming soon, but ZU isn’t the flagship phone in Sony’s pocket. What really will be the flagship of the year of 2013? Here it comes – The Xperia i1 Honami, which is also named One Sony.
Foreign Media released some leaked image of the Xperia i1, but the image is kind of blurry and we just can’t guess what it really is with regard to only the shape.
Summing up the earlier rumours of the Honami, the i1 is going to have a 5 inch 1080p display which is a 2000:1 Contrast Panel Touch Screen. It will feature a more protective glass which is an evolution from the Xperia Z one. It is going to add the next generation display engine as a replacement of the Bravia Engine 2 called X-reality engine and Triluminos multitouch technology. Also the i1 is going to have a similar OptiContrast Panel technique.
In terms of its CPU, the i1 will be powered up with a MSM8974 2.3 Ghz processor and Adreno 330 GPU, 2GB RAM and a 32 internal storage (supports MicroSD extension). The 3000 mAh battery will supply the great specification listed above. The Honami is also said to have built-in Android 4.2.2, new user interface, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0 and is of course, 4G LTE-ready.
Referring to the flagship released by HTC called the HTC One, this Honami is going to be equipped with two surround sound speaker with 2.2 mega pixel front camera (1080p recording). Speaking of the incredible camera, the Honami has a 1/1.5 inch 20 mega pixel Exmor RS lens that will shoot with Xenon + dual LED flashlight. For smartphone photographers, you will like this latest flagship simply because there will be a camera shutter key for your convenience. The branded Cyber-shot User Interface will also be pre-installed in the Honami.
As water and dust proof have become the main spot-light for Sony’s smartphone products, the Honami will also have a metallic plus carbon-fibre build that meets the IP55/58 standard.
Xperia ZU’s 6.44 inch screen might just be too big for a smartphone, the Honami might just have the right size for everyone.
