While Sony’s Xperia Z Ultra is a very interesting and juicy-looking device, another rumored phone of the Japanese company’s has us just as intrigued. I’m speaking about the Sony Honami / Sony Xperia i1, a Snapdragon 800 phone that is said to be coming with a 20 megapixel camera sensor, a 2 megapixel front camera, a 5-inch 1080p HD display, 2GB of RAM, a 2,700mAh battery and more.
That device has been leaked in new photos, giving us a look at how sleek and slim the device will be by the time it hits store shelves. The phone is drenched in white, and seems to have external ports as evidenced by door-looking mechanisms on the side. This could indicate that the battery won’t be user replaceable, but we’ll have to wait to see it for ourselves.
This beast of a phone will supposedly be here by the end of the year, too. Sony’s CEO is said to have mentioned that much to Korea Economic Daily. It’s certainly plausible, though we’ll have to wait on official word before we determine just how close to 2014 we’ll get before seeing it.
