Sony to revive the cameraphones with Xperia i1 Honami
Sony Cybershot lineup might be gone for good, but a new imaging-centered smartphone might be in the works. As the latest rumor has it Sony is preparing a monstrous cameraphone - the Xperia i1 Honami.
The Honami is rumored to be powered by the latest Snadpragon 800 chipset with a 2.3GHz quad-core Krait 400 processor, Adreno 330 graphics and 2GB of RAM. It should also feature a 5-inch 1080p display with Sony's Triluminos technology (with 50% higher color gamut).
The key selling point of the Honami though will be its camera. According to the leaked information we can expect a 16 to 20 megapixel 1/1.6" camera sensor working with Sony's BIONZ imaging processor. A xenon flash should complete the camera package.
The rest of the rumored specs include 32GB internal storage, LTE support, a 3000mAh battery unit, 10mm thickness, and water and dust resistance.
If this beast is real, it might be one of the hottest names of the holiday season.
