Alleged specs of Sony Honami and Togari flagships leak
Sony is rumored to be working on two new flagships for the second half of the year. They are codenamed Honami and Togari and will likely have version numbers of C670X (Honami) and likely C680X for Togari.
How we're hearing some new information about the two handsets coming mostly from Chinese sources. According to an alleged Xperia-tester who went on Baidu, Togari could prove Sony's first phablet device with an alleged 6.44" 1080p display (giving a density of around 342 ppi) and a design similar to that of the all-glass Xperia Z. We've seen benchmarks, which could belong to the Togari smartphone but sadly don't reveal much about the device's specs besides the screen.
The Sony Togari will likely be very slim (probably Xperia Z-slim) and have an all-white color option with white bezels. The Togari could be launched first in Japan as early as July.
The Sony Honami is likely the successor to the Xperia Z and ZL with a 5" 1080p screen, either a 16 or 20 MP Cyber-shot CMOS sensor with Carl Zeiss lens and a Sony-made Walkman amplifier (perhaps the S-Master MX Digital Amplifier). According to ePrice the Honami could have an IPS White Magic display and end up using the Snapdragon 800 chipset with four Krait 400 cores clocked at 2.3 GHz with the Adreno 330 GPU, 2 gigs of RAM and a battery capacity somewhere between 2700 and 3000 mAh. There are rumors of a dual-LED and Xenon flash on board. According to the same source the Honami could premiere in China on Unicom this July and see a gobal release later in August or September (perhaps on the IFA floor in Berlin?).
According to report, the Honami will feature a 4.8" 1080p display with around 459 ppi density and 13.1 MP camera.
According to VR-Zone Honami (and possibly the Togari, too) may end up using a Triluminos display, which means the panel could produce more natural colors by placing a filer between the White LED backlighting and the panel itself, converting the White LED backlighting into an RGB lighting of sorts.
Finally the sources point out that both devices will the dust and water resistant.
There are a lot of questions regarding both handsets and the preliminary information there is could turn out to be nothing more than a hoax, but we'll keep you posted as soon as anything becomes official.
