Sony i1 aka Honami cameraphone to land unlocked in the US this fall, alongside the 6.44" Togari phablet

0. phoneArena 07 May 2013, 07:49 posted on

The Sony i1 aka Honami is expected to feature a sensor larger than the one in the Nokia N8, for instance, aided by a Xenon and/or dual LED flash that will be much brighter than what we have in typical smartphones, as well as new software processing algorithms, and new interface, taking hints from the Cyber-shot camera range. The phone itself is rumored to have a glass/metal fusion chassis with carbon fiber elements, yet feature normal 10mm thickness...

Too bad you won't see specs even close to those for a few more decades.

These authors really need to stop calling these devices phablets, 5" - 8" are more like mini-tablets. A Nexus 7 can make calls, but they don't call it a phablet.

Lol, 20MP sensor with 8/12/13/16 MP max resolution and new image processing algorithm seems unimpressive?

If hes HTC: The Honami can take in way more light than your camera while having 4x the MP.
Sasmsung: Samsung is just average camera
Apple: Better than Samsung worse than Nokia Pure view.

I use my Nexus 7 to make calls sometimes and it works fine, so this is 6.44" a mini-tablet that can make calls...don't see the big deal

This could easily be the best android phone this year; Note 3 wont take the title.

true that. all in one device. Must be an idiot to carry a tablet, mp3 player, a camera and a phone all at once.
