Sony’s yet to go official with the device codenamed Honami, but enough details have arrived on the Android through various rumors and leaks to give us a pretty nice sense of what to expect for the camera-heavy smartphone. Today a collection of new rumors revisits some of the specs we’ve heard attached to the handset, attempting to confirm some, while suggesting alternatives for a few others.
The system dump that leaked for the Honami a couple weeks back already had us feeling confident about the phone’s Snapdragon 800 SoC and 20-megapixel camera, and none of that changes now. There’s mention of 2GB of system RAM, 16GB internal flash, and support for microSD expansion. All this hardware would be fueled by a sizable 3000 mAh battery, and the whole package could be waterproof like the Xperia Z.
Just yesterday we were talking about the Honami’s camera sensor, after hearing that it might not be as large as hoped. Unfortunately, that same smaller 1/2.3-inch size is mentioned again here. We do get a little new insight into the lens system being used alongside that sensor, with a shot of the phone’s rear confirming one of Sony’s G lenses – a series already in use with Sony stand-alone digital cameras.
