The steady supply of leaks on the Sony Xperia Z1, aka Honami, has definitely created its own demand and has left us smirking for the most part – it sure feels like Sony's thunder has been completely and irrevocably stolen. And while some of us prefer the not-knowing part, others have the wrappers off way before midnight on Christmas Eve. To that end, and if you find you consistently number yourself in the second group, then the last scoopful on the Honami won't leave you wanting.
Helping put the Sony Xperia Z1 into perspective are a few snaps of what is allegedly the metal frame of the phone, courtesy of cell phone parts supplier ETrade Supply. The plethora of keys and slots are said to all feature a water-proof layer on top of them, consistent with the latest teaser from Sony touting as much. The frame also fits with the few other teaser images we've seen, some official and others not so much.
And while it shouldn't be too long until we see a fully assembled Honami, we are nevertheless going to note that the bezels seem perceptibly narrower when compared to those of the Xperia Z. This should help both with sticking to yieldly dimensions, and also help reduce displeasure over the seemingly boxed-in screens of the Xperia line as a whole, thanks to the fatty bezels.
