Sony i1 Honami cameraphone leaks in a blurry pic, awesome spec sheet in tow

Sony's i1 Honami take on the likes of Nokia EOS and Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom cameraphone is expected to make a cameo in the fall, with Cybershot-quality camera and Full HD display onboard.

It is also expected to be the first truly One Sony device, made with CEO Kaz Hirai's strategy of converging the best Sony has to offer in its mobile gear. As if to prove that notion, the full specs of the device have been tipped, and they have changed a bit from the last leak for the better, making us salivate already at the eventual lossless zoom and interchangeable lens options bandied about by the insider who leaked the latest details:

Bear in mind that this is all still in the realm of speculation, but when there's smoke there's fire, and we hope the Honami will light it up below the best cameraphones this year, so we can all benefit as consumers.

how about wait for the official announcement to come so we actually know the real specs and design. S4 and HTC ONE were a big success just to let you know, and i see alot of people lining up for the Note 3.

if all those specs is true Note 3 will lose the battle, because Honami is not just big devices with stylus and powerful chipset.

GOD! just look at their "Source" these specs are a dream wish list of blogger. no creditable source has even confirmed this phone yet. i hope it exists and hope these specs are true. but this news is B.S! this is all fake!

S800 with HPm + new improved STAMINA mode maybe will solve the problem

stamina mode pretty much didn't do anything for the XZ.

54. yudi.nemesis unregistered

well i can't say anything about that because i'm not XP Z user but S800 with HPm + "new improved" STAMINA mode maybe will solve the problem

its not impossible but the phone would be too expensive. Samsung, Apple, Sony and HTC can make any dream phone as long as they have big profits.

81. yudi.nemesis unregistered

I know that the rumours said the price is between $800-$1000, but hey iphone also expensive but apple still have big profit.

yes but Apple has more fanboys than Sony around the world, do you know what i mean? their market share dropped but it is solid. Its more popular, even though we know which one is nicer. Eveybody that I know who has an iphone insists that is better than a flagship adnroid phone. Then i ask them: have you at least tried an android phone? Of course the answer is no.

This is interesting indeed. But i dont think there will be interchangeable lenses, probably 2 separate versions (one is cheaper).

Picture is fake. You guys have reported the same specs over and over again. Point? Interchangeable lens is 50% rumor

3000mAh is a turn-off...

why? its a 5 incher, so 3000mAh is enough.

agree. 3000mah is good enough. bigger than the galaxy s4's 2600 though not as big as motorola's leading power droid.

Finally a camera phone, that has 1080p screen, now waiting for sd card... 1080p screen and sd card is a must for a camera phone, don't you think?

If youre taking these rumors seriously, it says that this has microSD expansion on the 4th bullet.
