A bunch of new Sony i1 Honami photo samples remind us that the tease is hardly over

There's definitely something to besaid about human nature when it comes down to leaks and theirseemingly universal appeal. Sure, these smartphones, or whatever, areusually not that far into thefuture and are supposed to come “soon”. Unfortunately for“soon”, “right now” has been stealing the show since the dawnof men.



If somehow the title and theabove didn't allow you toglean with sufficient certainty what this one will be all about, thenlet us put it more explicitly – today is no exception when it comesto leaks, and instead of settling for a wait, we're gulping up thesenew bits of information right up. And who's under the spotlight? Why,Sony'supcoming high end smartphone, currently known as the i1 Honami,and its camera module, of course.



As those of you who have beentailing the Sony Honami from the start will surely know, besides themassive processing power that will be snugged underneath Sony'ssignature glass and plastic exterior resides another notableinternal. Namely, the alleged 20.7MP camera that Sony die-hards arehoping to, at the very least, hold its ground when stacked againstthe Nokia Lumia 1020. And while we've already seen the first fewsupposed photo samples, our appetite for more has hardly beensatiated. To that end, a number of new photo samples have beenbrought to our attention frommultiple sources sharing a similar story. All of the alleged SonyHonami samples you'll see below carry the same EXIF tag: taken by adevice with a model number C6903 (Honami LTE), shot in 8MP, 16:9 modewith a camera aperture of f/2.0. These are most probably snapped withpre-production software and/or hardware, so we're aren't going tojump the gun just yet. As always, keep the salt at an arm's length,for these are obviously unconfirmed.

Nokia Lumia 1020 is better, even 92x are better (my opinion)

obviously coz this is not meant to compete with the 1020. its meant to compete with the gs4 and i5s etc. besides, dont believe anything other than official samples

it IS meant to compete with them. i5 vs s4 vs htcOne vs 1020 vs lgG2 vs this they are all smartphones giving their best features on a same timeline.

I have the BEST mobile Samsung S3 and a Nokia 808 JUST for photos. I´m very happy with BOTH. I take photos with Nokia 808 and past via NFC to S3 and ... play with it. I particularly don´t like WP. But Nokia is the king of cameras.

I'm not asking how high 1020 ISO can go. I'm asking for 1020 sample at ISO 800 or ISO 1000 like honami

before judging just look at this esato has.confirmed software versions of different samples party--14.1.g.2.86_9_f200 beach--14.1.g.1.406_9_b400 and BIKE--14.1.g.1.443_9_b600 so look at the software and then come.up.with something

Still looks crap when zoomed in 100%. A lot of noise in that sample so You can't say honami is crap. Just wait for low iso honami sample

Your argument is a joke. Honami isn't even out yet - please don't say how good this phone is without even trying it. Wait till it's out, try it buy it whatever then come back to the discussion with how 'good/crap' arguments.

...and I suppose you're the one who's got a proof that honami is better, right?

Hellow... ever heard of fakes? This is not even a real phone yet! There is no Honami that is official as of now! If I were you, I will pass judgement 1 week after release of the phone when reviewers gets hands-on on the real and legitimate device.

Wait till official picture samples are out. Its obvious these arent done very well, the awful light leak on the side. Too early to judge.

Glad someone finally said that. Goodness, even in the article it reminds everyone it it is pre-production software.
