More details emerge for Sony’s ‘Honami’ handset, includes Snapdragon 800 and 20MP Cybershot G lens


As we at Talk Android have reported before, Sony has two flagship devices set for release in 2013 including a new phone and a 6.44″ phablet. The phone, codenamed “Honami”, is rumored to be a proper follow-up to the popular Xperia Z that was released in February, and today we have an almost complete rundown of what to expect in the Honami.

With a focus on photographs, the Honami’s 20-megapixel camera with feature a Sony Cybershot G Lens along with an Exmor RS 1/1.6″ sensor that is larger than most available smartphones, promising excellent photos even in low-light situations (a rumored dual-LED flash won’t hurt matters either). Sony apparently plans to improve their camera’s software algorithms and interface, hinting at a photo-taking experience previously only dreamed about in smartphones. Hit the break for even more details on this exciting device.

If thats not enough, the Honami will also reportedly sport a dedicated Sony Walkman chip, 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 5-inch full HD display, and an integrated battery ranging somewhere from 2,700 to 3,000mAh. Housed in a glass/metal fusion body with some carbon fiber added to its rumored 10mm design, Sony’s newest offering is looking to be a combination of beauty and function.

With a possible Japanese release sometime in July, this high-powered device could be available Stateside sometime in the Fall. No price has been set yet, but Sony is expected to unveil the device officially at IFA 2013, and when they do, be sure to check back here for a full recap.
