Sony gets an early start on IFA 2013, sends out event invites

Summer is now in full swing, and as the hot, lazy days fly by, we’re getting closer and closer to the next big trade show where we hope to see the latest and greatest in smartphones and tablets. The IFA in Berlin gets started in early September, and companies in the industry are already getting their ducks in a row. Nearly two full months in advance, Sony has already started distributing invitations to its own IFA event.

Sony’s IFA press conference will take place on Wednesday, September 4. There’s no obvious hint at what to expect, like we’ve been seeing from Nokia and LG recently, but it’s not hard to make a few guesses. For instance, there’s Sony’s answer to all the camera-centric smartphones we’ve been seeing, the device codenamed Honami. With a Snapdragon 800 SoC and a 20-megapixel camera, it could be a huge hit for the manufacturer. Our only concern is that the phone might actually launch in advance of this IFA event – at least based on the quality of leaks we’ve seen, it should be nearly ready to go.

We’ll be on the scene in Berlin in September, so whatever Sony has to announce, we’ll be sure to bring you first-hand news of it.
