Sony i1 Honami cameraphone prototype gets fan-rendered, its C6903 code passes certification
The Sony i1 Honami cameraphone rumors are in peak mode, as more and more speculated details trickle down through the corporate cracks. Besides top notch specs, the handset is interesting mainly with the Cybershot-quality camera in it, as it will be a direct take on the unwieldy Galaxy S4 Zoom, or the 41 MP PureView Nokia EOS, which will run Windows Phone.

Esato forum members, who have been pretty spot on Sony's plans before, have created fan-made renders of the Honami, based on alleged insider info about prototypes bandied about in Sony's labs. Supposedly the device won't be thicker than normal, despite the better camera inside, come with glass unibody and waterproof certification, and will feature speaker grill at the bottom of the back. The renders are still being worked on based on feedback from those people in the know, so they might have more details later on, and this could be just one of the end design paradigms of the Japanese for the Honami.

Other reshuffle is the charging port on the side, which is an acquired taste, but if the whole thing materializes anything close to these renders below, and with the rumored phone and camera specs, Sony has a true shot at Android glory. 

Moreover, a Sony C6903 phone, which is said to indicate the Honami, just appeared passing through an Indonesian carrier body, adding more water to Sony's cameraphone rumor mill. You can see the listing in the slideshow below after the renders.
