Leaked photos reveal new Sony Xperia i1 Honami specs

New leaked images of the Sony Xperia i1 Honami have surfaced, with a 20-megapixel camera coming as standard and the return of Cybershot to phones as part of the package.

The photos, which originally appeared on a Vietnamese Facebook fan page, are carried by GSM Arena and Know Your Mobile and show the device from three angles.

One photo, of the back of the phone, shows a large camera lens and next to it a ‘G’ as well as the camera resolution of ‘xx.xMP’. Another photo in the bunch confirms the camera has a 20.0-megapixel resolution.

The final photo of the three is of the side and back of the phone, that shows it looks very similar in style to the recently released Xperia Z Ultra and Xperia Z

Previous rumours had suggested the smartphone will have a 20-megapixel camera with an f/2.0 aperture, 5mm focal length, Xenon flash and BIONZ image processing with a Sony Cybershot camera app.

When XDA Developers leaked details of the Cybershot camera app, it showed a number of variables, including the ability to perform a visual search using the Info eye, with a choice of filters to change the appearance of photos also included.

The inclusion of Cybershot on the Xperia i1 Honami is the first time the branding has been used on a mobile device since the dedicated range was scrapped in 2012 following the break-up of Sony’s relationship with Ericsson.

Further details on the Xperia i1 Honami are a closely-guarded secret, however, it looks as though it’ll have a 2.2GHz Snapdragon 800 CPU with 2GB RAM, a 5in full HD display and run on Google Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. It’s expected the Xperia i1 Honami will make its first appearance at IFA 2013 in Berlin on 4 September.

Sony has enjoyed a resurgence in smartphone sales since the release of the Xperia Z and Q1 results released this week showed a return to the black, driven largely by the Xperia product range.
