A couple of days back we got our first look at what could be Sony’s upcoming 20-megapixel “cameraphone,” the Xperia i1, or “Honami.” In addition to a beastly rear camera, alleged specs for the future Sony flagship include a Snapdragon 800 CPU and a 5-plus-inch display.
Today we’re seeing fresh images of the device cropping up on Just Another Mobile Blog. The site shows a device matching the earlier “Honami” leaks, while revealing new hardware details, such as a microSD slot, an Xperia Z Ultra-like magnetic charging port and a dedicated camera key (natch). The report also claims the final version device will ship with a Xenon flash rather than the LED flash pictured.
Aside from the specs, Sony’s clearly still utilizing its “Omnibalance” design language in its latest product, and the device pictured would look right at home alongside the manufacturer’s current line-up. We’ve heard through our own sources that a Q3 launch is likely for the product, so hopefully we won’t have to wait too long to find out more.
