First alleged Sony Honami photo sample appears

First alleged Sony Honami photo sample appears
Folks, we're either seeing an elaborate, on-going hoax, or Sony's smartphone division has some seriously leaky pipes. Snippets of information on the Sony Honami are literally starting to come out of our ears, and the device can't come sooner!

We've seen multiple pictures of the device itself, including close-ups. We've also seen the camera interface, and we even saw the Sony Honami shine its fancy internals on a visit to GFXBench. One of the few things we haven't actually seen? Photo samples. That's right, photo samples have been quite elusive, especially for a handset the camera module of which has received tremendous attention.

This may have changed now, for an alleged photo sample has leaked out on the forum boards of Vietnamese Tinhte. Said sample is, purportedly, from a very early prototype, so we're hoping for more by the time the Sony Honami ships (announcement is expected during this September's IFA2013). 

So can we trust this photo sample's authenticity? It's certainly possible, but we'd nevertheless suggest you take this new intel with a pinch of salt.
