    Yesterday, we saw Sony post a little teaser to Twitter. Between its talk about an upcoming launch and what we could make out from the image, it seemed pretty darn clear we were talking about Honami, rumored to go official at the company's September 4 event. Today, Sony continues with more of the same, and we also get a chance to look at a new leaked image of the phone, showing off its color options. We all know how Sony loves waterproofing its smartphones, and if today's pic is any indication, Honami will be continuing with that tradition. The company is once again using language that ...

    Sony's IFA 2013 press event is less than two weeks away; on September 4, we're going to get the official story on the company's latest devices, and unless the rumor mill has seriously misled us, that's likely to include both the unusual "lens camera" accessories that recently leaked, as well as the long-anticipated Honami. Whether the latter arrives as the Xperia i1 or the Z1 – or something else entirely – it aims to really push boundaries so far as what kind of camera performance we can expect from Xperia handsets. As we wait for the phone to go official, Sony's posted a little teaser ...

    Sony has been all about Z-series Android this year: starting with the Xperia Z and ZL, and most recently with the Z Ultra, Z's been the name of the game. Now the company's next big Android is nearly ready to launch, and rumors have suggested that it might break from tradition: that the device we've been following as codename Honami could arrive as the Xperia i1. A new theory now suggests that won't be the case at all, and Honami will continue the Z lineage as the Xperia Z1. That actually makes sense from a number of angles. Besides just going with brand consistency (like's been so big this ...

    Sony's been putting out some pretty nice smartphone and tablet hardware this year, getting an early start with the Xperia Z/ZL, releasing the very attractive Xperia Tablet Z, and most recently, debuting the Xperia Z Ultra. What's coming next, though, could be the company's biggest Android model to arrive in all of 2013, the model codenamed Honami, which looks like it could launch as the Xperia i1. Honami's big hook should end up being its imaging capabilities, like we've been seeing elevated to the forefront of recent phone designs from a growing number of manufacturers. The latest rumor ...

    Sony's Honami (aka the Xperia i1) is going to have a pretty nice camera – that much seems a given. After all, we've seen plenty of leaks seeming to confirm the presence of a 20.7 -megapixel shooter. While we've been expecting Honami to produce great still shots, a new rumor suggests that the phone could have some exceptional video capabilities, as well, possibly even recording 4K video for playback on the next generation of HD screens. We just brought you some new photos of the Honami in white, but it's another image from that leak that's now catching our attention, apparently depicting ...

    Just a few weeks left until Sony will most probably unveil the device which we've seen leaked all over the internet lately, referred to as the Honami. Despite all the images that were posted and captured by Mr. Blurrycam, we haven't seen color options of the upcoming device. That is, until today; we're most probably looking at a white Sony Honami C690X. There are different angles to inspect and the phone is even pictured side-by-side with an iPhone, to get a sense of its dimensions. The 20.7MP camera seems to be a go and the battery is expected to be one of 3,000mAh. Let the pictures above ...

    One of the more unusual smartphone rumors to come our way this summer has been one about Sony and plans for an external add-on phone camera accessory. More than just a lens, the product was supposed to be some sort of all-in-one camera that affixed to the rear of an existing phone and wirelessly communicated with the handset. We were very much skeptical at the time, but today a new leak sure seems to confirm those claims, and gives us a nice, clear look at how this product could launch. Supposedly, there will be at least two of these camera accessories, Sony's models DSC-QX10 and ...

    We're just a couple of weeks away from IFA in Berlin, and we already know that both Sony and Samsung have shared their press invitations for their pre-IFA press conferences. In the case of Samsung, we all know their event will be about their Galaxy Note III, but in the case of Sony, there is a lot of speculation surrounding the Sony Honami. A leaked poster shows the device's border being teased in the purple color that we already know from the Xperia Z and ZL, and the poster already teases the final name of the product, which will apparently be Xperia i1. This new Xperia is also rumored to ...

    The Sony Honami has been subject to many rumors, leaks, and reports lately as we're waiting for the phone to become official. In this latest set of images we're taking a look at the Honami pictured side-by-side with the Xperia Z. As you can see in the images above an below, the Xperia i1 (Honami) and the Xperia Z are very much alike. The main design principles are identical. However, the Honami appears to be a tad longer and wider, but it might also be an aberration of the images due to perspective. As a bonus there are a couple of screenshots from the camera app on the upcoming Honami. ...
