Sony Honami visits FCC, reveals late September or early October launch
Sony's answer to the Nokia Lumia 1020, the Sony Xperia i1 Honami is supposed to be the first of a new line of camera-centric phones from the Japanese based OEM. Information from a visit to the FCC made by the device shows that the model might see the light of day as soon as late September or early October. A short-term confidentiality letter in the FCC package expires at the end of September possibly giving us a window into what Sony is thinking.

The latest word on the specs of the device include a 5 inch 1080 x 1920 triluminuous display with X-reality engine and a quad-core 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor under the hood. 2GB of RAM is onboard with 16GB of native storage included. If you need additional storage, you can use the microSD slot. The rear camera would feature a 20MP sensor with Sony G Lens and BIONZ image Processing engine and the Honami will be IP55/57 certified for water and dust protection. The 3000mAh battery with Stamina Mode keeps the lights on for at least a full day. Android 4.2.2 will be installed out of the box and the phone will be available in black, white and purple.

The FCC documentation also confirms the Honami name for the device. So who is pumped for Sony's Xperia i1 Honami?
