Sony Xperia Z1 (Honami) renders leak, look pretty official
We've seen plenty of high-res pictures of the upcoming Sony Xperia Z1 (codename Honami), but it's always interesting to see some of the official renders of the device, if possible. We can't confirm that these images are the official device renders, but they do look pretty real. The images come from the Xperia Blog, and the renders do look a lot like the leaks we have seen.

The Sony Xperia Z1 has been rumored for a September 24th release. The device is expected to feature a 20.7MP Exmor RS camera, a 5-inch 1080p Triluminos display, a Snapdragon 800, 2GB of RAM, and is expected to continue Sony's plans of being water-resistant and shockproof. The closed up ports in the renders would support that idea. We have a full round-up of all the Xperia Z1 rumors all ready for your perusal. 

We're expecting to hear the official announcement of the Z1 this week, so stay tuned.

I actually thought that Sony will change the design on the Xperia Z1, never knew they will keep the Xperia Z design. But this looks not bad at all, it is as elegant as it's little brother.

Not bad Sony! I'm getting this phone.

2012 xperia S design 1
mid 2012 xperia t design 2
2013 xperia z design 3
those are only the high end ones

tell me one company that has three completely different designs in 2 years???
2012 and 2013 galaxy s3 and s4 have almost the same design. don'e even get me started with the iPhones 4, 4s, 5 and even 5s!!!

"Same old"? It hasn't been a year. They hardly change what owners prefer.

first of all the Xperia Z is only a few months old. they only add a bigger lense in the phone too compete with the NOKIA 1020 and GALAXY ZOOM. still have a beautiful design not too mention its water proof

No I'm not a hater of SAMSUNG, actually I do have a Samsung phone until now, since 2006, and it has a premium feel. But the SAMSUNG NOW is not doing great. ;)

Thats what you call experimenting the market.. Samsung is dominating with their brand look, Samsung is not doing wrong with their flagships.. whats wrong is that theyr also using the design in lowends

Bezels are big, but forgivable for such great device...

The top/botton bezels are big IMO, just compare it with the LG G2.

All the Z1 has on the G2 is camera, and I haven't seen sample shots to give my final judgements.

Not so much... you have to understand that the big bezels are there for a reason (true I would have loved a thicker phone but smaller in bezel size...)

This phone is waterproof has a bigger camera sensor and top of the line specs...

So yeah, the bezels here are forgivable...

You on the other hand are a Sony hater and that is biased...

I actually like Samsung, Sony, HTC, ASUS, and some other manufacturers when they build great tech...

Am I missing something here brcause nothing screams premium of the design of the Z1. It's basic glass rectangle and nothing more. Everyone is joining the Sony bandwagon just for attention when a year ago they didn't know who Sony was.

microSD card, IP58 and probably build quality...

I don't hate Sony. They're just overrated phones and nothing more.

Again trolling on a Sony article.. Did Sony got your attention, curiousity? Or Are you just scared that this device is gonna beat the s**t out of your iphone and galaxy?

47. PapaSmurf (Posts: 10457; Member since: 14 May 2012)


IP58 = something no one cares about to be quite honest.
Build quality? A black glass rectangle? Cool!

So far, G2 > Z1.

It seems that Sony's hype made you feel more insecure. The hype won't be affected by these comments.

Don't take this as a comeback, though.
