More specs leak for the Sony Togari phablet and Honami cameraphone: 20MP sensor and Xenon flash

0. phoneArena 29 Apr 2013, 04:24 posted on

How about a camera unit from the Cyber-shot range, with claimed 20MP resolution, like we heard before, Carl Zeiss lens and xenon flash in addition to the dual LED? Sounds great, but Sony might also be throwing its vast sound experience in the mix, with a separate Walkman audio chip, like the S-Master MX Digital Amplifier, to give something that audio junkies can drool about, too...

Shut the f**k up, Wendy.

Sony has all the technology and resources to really come up with those phones. If it happened, it will only raise the bar of the best smartphone of the year.

She probably don't want Sony to rival Sammy in the cameraphone area since Sammy will lose for sure. hahaha

Aww Wendy. Can't stand Samsung losing to Sony after your Apple lost to Sammy?
However, my friend who is at some high post in marketing dept. of Cybershot said that they are making a custom high end lens for Sony Mobile which won't be available to any other OEM, be it camera OEM or Mob. OEM at orders from HQ.

i think sony will going to launch phablet with this same specs, because they want to beat Sammy and HTC. this is killer specs for me really really great specs. Walkman, Cybershot damn u can't beat that sammy and HTC.

Honami seems to be good, but please Sony, never ever use tft...it´s not worthy to the Sony brand.

Exactly what I was going to say... I love Sony brand, I use their sound system, headphone, IEMs but will never buy any phone from them unless they remove some bottlenecks.
- Low quality LCDs
- Weak speakers
- Small batteries
- Old, dark, boring UI

If they manage to replace these with better parts, I'd gladly jump in their boat!

All phones which uses an LCD screen, be it an IPS, PLS, TN, etc., are all TFT LCDs. Also, Sony is rumored to use its Triluminos tech in the One Sony display, or a Sharp Igzo display with a 2000:1 contrast ratio or another WhiteMagic display. Never again an inferior display.

Let than happen... I am not agains LCDs, actually I prefer LCD than AMOLEDs. But never liked any Sony's LCD. Less contrast and dull colors. Heck, display of my 480p Micromax phone looks better than my colleague's 720p xperia S...

hmmm, a sony xperia phone with a Carl Ziess lens cam is pretty impossible. and i mean its is impossible for years simply because nokia has an exclusive deal with carl ziess (the deal's period is for years) to put Ziess lenses on nokia phones.

I agree with you, but it will have the Cybershot branding. Carl Zeiss lens wont make it because only Nokia can use it. Im pretty sure the person who came up with this rumor had no knowledge about this so they can just mention Carl Zeiss lens.

You do know that Cyber-shot cameras have Carl Zeiss lenses right? At least the higher ones do.

Yeah, I agree! This phone and the Nokia EOS will be the killer!

Why EOS? Because the EOS is the next king cameraphone from Nokia, even though the EOS is running WP8, but the camera will be a blast!

I wish all the best to Sony and Nokia!

Sony has awaken after so many years of using crap sensors and cheap optics...now when Nokia is about to announce the next stage in mobile photography in the form of EOS, shortly after undisputed king, 808.
Hey, sony! Even htc is making better cameras than you nowadays.
