After Sony revealed the Xperia Z Ultra a super sized-phablet, and probably a Galaxy Note III killer, they still have one more surprise – the Sony Xperia i1 Honami. The Xperia Honami is said to be a camera phone and features a, more or less, 20 megapixel rear facing camera. It might be the future rival of Nokia Lumia EOS and Galaxy S4 Zoom.
Techtudo leaked some images putting the Sony Xperia i1 Honami in between the Xperia Z Ultra and Xperia ZL. The picture below suggest that its display could be somewhere around 5 inches or more.
But the main highlight of this rumored phone is that it is said to have a powerful Exmor RS camera sensor, and as rumors say, it’s most probably a 20 megapixel rear facing camera. Its camera could also feature a dual LED or Xenon flash, BIONZ image processing and more. The bottom line is, the Xperia Honami is a camera phone geared towards people who likes to take photos anytime, anywhere.
