Sony Xperia Z1 (Honami) renders leak, look pretty official

We've seen plenty of high-res pictures of the upcoming Sony Xperia Z1 (codename Honami), but it's always interesting to see some of the official renders of the device, if possible. We can't confirm that these images are the official device renders, but they do look pretty real. The images come from the Xperia Blog, and the renders do look a lot like the leaks we have seen...

When apple and samsung doesn't do a complete overhaul to their phones you guys keep on nagging about how they lost their touch. Now sony manages to keep the exact same design of last year's flagship and your ok with it. I myself didnt like it when sammy and apple didnt go with a new design language, but lots of you are a Bunch of hypocrites.

So its been 9 months right? The s4 was introduced 10 months after the s3, same as the note 2 and 3, as well as the htc one and one x, etc... I guess its you who should do his homework. And am sorry, I should have said their past flagship, but I guess your fanboyism blinded you to the point wou wont even bother yourself focusing on my main point.

I love quality, I love HTC, LG, SONY, APPLE, NOKIA, is that what you called a fanboy? S4 is a refreshed s3, Note 2 is a bigger S3.. and based on leaks, Note 3 is the revived note1/Mega S2.

Shows how smart you are mate. January to September, thats 9 months smartass. AGAIN fanboys try to skip the main point, shows how much butthurt my comment left you. I didnt say their design sucked, I just said its ok for fanboys that sony kept the exact same design while others don't have the same right to do so. Stop being a blind sheep for God's sakes.

I think you're the one who is defensive mate, I'm just responding to your comment, you're the one who's over reacting. Post number 56 mate, that's my point.

That's your defense? Lmao. So what it was introduced in the states in August, a 3rd world country like Lebanon, had it since March. The point is when it was released, I don't care if sony is this S***y in marketing and selling their phones.

Don't give the DESIGN Bull***t. Apple hasn't changed sht in their design...neither has Samsung. iPhone 5 is a refreshed iPhone 4 with better specs. It was a bar 3 years ago and still is. Same thing with Samsung galaxy and notes. They are simply tweaking and dusting off the old sht and putting in new hardware. iPhone had a big jump in DESIGN when they went from 3GS to iPhone 4. Nows thats a design change. Sony just made a big jump when they came out with the Xperia Z. So I don't mind them keeping the same design as the Z. Consider it a 4 to 4S jump if you will. So I don't give a crap about ur opinions...haters gonna hate. I'm still gonna buy this phone. :D

Please...don't give me B.S about the design being the same as the Z. Isn't it the same with Samsung and Apple? They haven't been changing sht in their lineups either. Sony just went a big jump in design when they came out with the Z. The Honami keeping the family design isn't a big deal.

I could care less of what you think of me to be quite honest. Like me or not, I don't care. Been on the site for over two years and my views and opinions have never changed. Don't like what I say about Sony? Then ignore it. I talk negative about every OEM at different times so get over it. Thanks and have a nice day.
