Having gone through an extensive checklist of leaks, ranging from specs, through actual device images down to UI peeks, today marks the day we receive the first allegedly confirmed launch date for the Sony Honami, and there's even more.
An official-looking teaser image for the Sony Honami has been outed on the forum boards of Chinese Digi Wo. As you can probably make out from the images in the gallery below, the almost completely veiled teaser is a departure from what we've been expecting, vis-a-vis an Xperia Z-esque design. An elegant purple line stretches the profile of the Honami, along with a considerably more rounded profile than we were expecting. The good folks over at the XPERIA Blog have provided some close-ups that reveal the power button that's featured on all the latest Sony Xperia smartphones, along with a flap of unknown purpose.
Of course, there's no telling whether this image has been fabricated or not, so we'd take this with a grain of salt if we were you. If we're to disregard this disclaimer, though, it would appear that we may very soon have significantly more to go on: the launch is pegged for September 4 and set to take place in Berlin, Germany.
