Sony is reportedly working on another flagship device that will debut later in the year, said to pack a 20-megapixel camera that will take on the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom and Nokia Lumia 1020. A full list of specifications for the device has now emerged, with Engadget relaying the details from Taiwanese site ePrice.
According to the spec sheet, the “Honami” – also known as the i1 – will indeed include a 20.7-megapixel ExmorRS sensor. A 2-megapixel Exmor R camera will be added to the front of the device too for video calls. Other specs are said to include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor clocked at 2.2Ghz, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, and a hefty 3,000mAh battery.
All the usual niceties such as NFC, LTE, and MHL will also be included, although some other specs have yet to be finalized. The thickness of the handset, for instance, doesn’t seem to have been nailed down yet, but the spec list from ePrice indicates that Sony is shooting for a phone that’s 8.3mm thick right now. The display will be the same size as the Xperia Z too, coming in at 5-inches with a 1080p resolution. The panel could be of a higher quality, though, as there’s mention of Triluminos technology, also used on the Xperia Z Ultra.
There’s still no word on when we can expect to see the Honami, but Sony has invited the press to its booth at IFA 2013, scheduled to take place on September 4th in Berlin.
