Sony i1 Honami poses for the camera along the Xperia Z, camera interface showcased again
Sony's upcoming flagship, the Honami, must have a thing for the cameras. Even though we still have no clue as to when we'll officially hear about the upcoming phone from the Land of the Rising Sun, we've seen plenty already.

Today is no exception, for more leaked information has been revealed by an unknown source for GadgetHelpline. This time – we get a brief size comparison with the Xperia Z, along with a little more intel on the software behind Honami's alleged 20MP shooter. Of course, a system dump from the Honami has already spilled the beans on what's new in the camera department, so consider this an additional confirmation. Oh, and this time – it's in English!

Am I the only one here or did the horizontal bezel got smaller compared to the previous leak?

Be sure that those huge bezel is somethin worth it, like sensor parts, or the amplifier chip at the bottom and the 3000mah for the 8mm thick. Space inside has been occupied

Dissapointing that there were wnough space for the buttons to be placed on the bezel. Really curious to see how the camera lookslike

This is a sexy device. I find the Xperia Z more attractive though (Most likely due to DEM BEZELS)

and people say only samsung makes same kind of phones(design wise)...atleast you can differentiate between s3 and s4..

Samsung uses CHEAP plastic, Nokia, Apple and Sony uses premiumed material

It is ok to use follow previous design language if it excellent and classy but not if it was boring in the first place! The S3 design was flawed with the metal looking plastic edging cracking and the phone not a looker and the same boring design language was carried forward into the S4, hence the complaints! The Xperia Z on the other hand is one of the best designed phones of recent times along side the HTC One. Personally, I found the size of the XZ big enough and not sure about the Si1 being bigger! Will wait to hold it before deciding.

If it is so....then why most android and even wp fans blame iphone for same thing...even though iphone's design is excellent and is also a big hit...

At least sony doesn't use last year design unlike your beloved samsung. Same design for 2 years in a row. If it's a nice design like xperia people will be okay with it but it has an ugly bar soap design

Well, bezel isn't a big deal to me, but what Honami disappoints me is that it won't have Xenon flash. Why Sony?

I'm guessing that want to keep it thin, Z Ultra doesn't even have an LED flash

i don't like the way it looks but hopefully, other features make up for that not so desirable appearance. the camera should be better than the galaxy's now. the speaker should be better. the display should be better although i think triluminos still does not offer any worthwhile improvement. i'm still disappointed with the triluminos display. there's still that noticeable washing away of colors. it does not lower power consumption. it still looks dull on photos (based on those leaks). i'm sorry i'm just expecting too much from sony since they are supposed to be experts when it comes to display technology. also i really hope the camera does not disappoint considering that it's being hyped for having G lens and a higher MP count.

The screen is a major leap from the XZ and it has very good viewing angles. Must stress that viewing angles are not really an issue for me but that was the main criticism of the XZ's screen. The Honami uses similar screen tech to the Ultra so nothing to be disappointed about. The colours are vivid and literally pop off the displays! See this link -

Look at those blacks, Nice job Sony !!!! Dont scew up size now. Xperia Z was quite big as it is. People will likely go for note 3 if there is only a marginal difference between honami and note 3

haters gonna hate, thing is this phone specs wise seems to be aiming for best camera in android realm so regardless of its looks, people will buy it for the fact they wont have to buy point and shoot camera along with their pretty look phones. you want good looking phone get HTC One, with camera that can only shoot things within 10 feet limit.

nah I won't buy neither, not worth my money, sony may has a good spec, but this stupid bezel? nahhh... htc one? yes it has a quite good design, but 8 mp? come on... also 5" is good in my hands, why 4.7"? hahaha...

I have a Lumia and yes the bezel is big that's my only complaint style wise. sapibuntinx made that comment because most of the flagship android phone have a small bezel.

I know what happened to you people. Is bezel part of the standards now? Geez. You people should think about standards set for a smartphone.

everybody has their own standard... camera? design? spec? speaker? OS? all of them?
