Sony i1 Honami cameraphone pops up in the flesh, sporting Z-like design
posted by Daniel P. / Jul 23, 2013, 5:04 AM
Judging from the hints and leaked photos so far it will have a flat back, with just a 20 MP Exmor sensor in the upper left corner. A few clear photos have emerged that allegedly depict the Honami front, back and sideways, and they indeed show that Sony is going for a regular thin look and feel, but spicing it up in the camera department. The bottom is evidently hosting a giant speaker grill, indicating some added focus on the audio department, too, like originally rumored.
Xperia Z design heritage, and only a camera comparison will answer who's boss in the sensor and lens department.Now what good will be the sensor compared to the giant photography marvel in the Lumia 1020 remains to be seen, but the i1 is apparently going to come in a thin Android form for now, with a chassis that jibes with the

- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 800, Quad-core, 2200 MHz

I like that speaker grill. The bottom bezel is so huge.

Why does the screen look so terrible, the Xperia Z Ultra had a pretty good Triluminos display, this one looks worse than the Xperia Z. Also why doesn't it have tiny bezels like the Xperia ZL. Hopefully its a early prototype.

Dont worry. This will suck because of small sensor.

I'm disappointed! And some people say Galaxy s4 it's ugly!

You might want to reconsider that statement unless, of course, you are simply hating! The Xperia Z is recognised, along side the HTC One as one of the best looking phones around. The specs on this make it a step up....not forgetting the triluminous display which makes this a huge plus.

Is this a cameraphone? A cybershotphone?

Hmm the flat back tells me that the camera while better than most will still have an extremely small sensor meaning it won't best the 1020.... At least that's my take. regardless I live the way the phone looks and if they can get that screen tech to work as it should then they may have a winner...too bad its running on android though, that kills it for me personally.
