Sony to shoehorn Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 inside Sony Xperia Z refresh?

phone. The current version of the Sony Xperia Z features a 5 inch screen with 1080 x 1920 resolution (FHD) which works out to a spectacular 443ppi pixel density. And if you were wondering, the current models feature a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor.
Murtazin has been known to be off the mark occasionally, so we need to take this report with the proverbial grain of salt. It is possible that the phone tested by Murtazin was the model now known as the Sony i1 Honami, which carries a 5 inch screen like the Xperia Z, but is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800. This model is supposed to have the best camera of any Android handset with interchangeable lens and is expected to be IP58 certified for water and dust. It is believed that this unit will sell unlocked in the states, free from the clutches of subsidies and two-year contracts. Looking for a time frame? Perhaps we will see the Sony i1 Honami touch down in September or October.

I find the SLCD3 part hard to believe, why would they use other companies displays when they produce their own? My guess is that it is the Trilluminous display...

Shhhh.... Let the clueless HTC fans have their warped reality. I think Sharp is the sole provider of the SLCD3 this time but I know Sony was one of the 4 who manufactured the SLCD2 screen on the One X. Acer, Sony, and Sharp believe.

i think HTC doesn't have display technology, the SLCD3 in HTC One is manufactured by JDI (Japan Display Inc) and Samsung display is also a secondary supplier JDI is a new company for small and medium sized display formed through the integration of Sony mobile display, Toshiba mobile display, and Hitachi display. JDI also was behind the HTC DNA and HTC Butterfly. so Sony is easly to use SLCD3/JDI IPS LCD, the only thing hard to believe is why Sony use some crappy display on Xperia Z when they have better display

Why do you always call out Eldar Murtazin to be "of the mark occasionally"? PA is known to be a rumor based site, with 100 articles just about suposed iPhone parts... Little credit where it is due wouldn't hurt.

Processors are not going solve any issues if software is not optimized. That's the problem with the s4.an old s3 n s2 are still very smooth because touch wiz was very optimized for them. Sony should learn to optimize their UI n stop putting trust into hardware. My experience with their Fon was horrible.

Have to diasgree with you. Sony has upped its game in terms of optimising its UI and it is very light touch. The only real criticism of the Xperia Z is Camera noise and the viewing angles of the display, which seemingly is not an issue for most. By comparison, I have just gotten rid of my S4 as I found it laggy not due to android but due to unnecessary Samsung bloatware which was next to useless in practical terms and I had to disable pretty much all of it.
