Sony Xperia i1 Honami exposed, might launch at IFA 2013

Have a look at the first full-blown photos of the upcoming Xperia i1 Honami, the beautiful camera centric phone from Sony which might be officially launched at IFA 2013.

Sony’s rumored Xperia i1 Honami is a special phone. It is that ‘One Sony’ phone that will hopefully bring out the best from every department of the company in a Smartphone. Without any further delay, check out the all black Sony i1 Honami.

We were particularly impressed with the new images, showing an almost entirely bezel-less device (to be honest, we can’t even differentiate well where the screen really ends). The body is reportedly made of aluminium, ditching glass fiber for it. A micro SD card slot and dedicated camera button can also be spotted in the photos.

Sony’s Xperia i1 Honami is rumored to pack a powerful Exmor RS camera sensor (whether 20 MP or 13 MP is uncertain), dual LED or Xenon flash, BIONZ image processing and possibly interchangeable lens (putting it in the same league as DSLRs). Sources also report a revamped SocialLife UI on the new phone, which will make its way to other high-end Xperia phones via updates at a later stage. With Honami being the second major phone to be rumored to launch at IFA 2013 (the other being Galaxy Note 3), we eagerly await the arrival of the event dates (like praying every night for it to come soon).

Keep in mind that these photos might only be showing us early prototypes of Sony’s Honami realization. The final phone may vary in looks, design and even specifications to a large extent.
