Sony’s had a hard time keeping the Sony Xperia Z1 (Honami) under wraps. A supercharged refresh to the original Sony Xperia Z that launched only earlier this year, the device has been leaked more times than we can even count. More recently, Sony’s been gearing up for the device’s official unveiling (set for next week), teasing the device on the usual social networks by showing off tightly cropped images of the device’s camera and buttons. There was even a very sexy teaser video uploaded to Sony’s YouTube channel, which you can find below.
We’ve had a pretty good idea that the device would share many of the same design cues as its predecessor — thanks to numerous blurry cam leaks in the past — but this latest leak is giving us our clearest look yet at the device yet. Photos of a few Xperia Z1 dummy units were snapped up by 365dian, and show us every corner of the device in brightly lit, plain view.
As a refresher, the Sony Xperia Z1 is said to come equipped with Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 800 processor, a full HD 1080p display, 20MP G-Series camera that is capable of recording video in 4K resolution. A smaller version of the Honami, codenamed “Itsuki”, is said to also be announced during Sony’s Sept 4th event, packing the same camera, only in a smaller 4.3-inch 720p display package.
With so much amazing Android hardware being announced announced in the coming weeks, the only question is which will be first to market and which device your wife will allow you to splurge on.
