As we inch closer and closer to IFA Berlin, we expect the teasers to start ramping up in full force. Sony is the latest to get a juicy teaser out of the door, with the Japanese manufacturer proclaiming that “the best of Sony is about to get even better.”

The latest teaser video shows what we’ve been calling the Sony Xperia Z1, aka the Sony Honami, which is rumored to be a 5-inch 1080p smartphone that has a Snapdragon 800 processor, a 20 megapixel G-Series camera (which can apparently record 4K video), 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage and more.

Speaking of that camera sensor, it’s something Sony has been spending a lot of time hyping over the past couple of days. The first tease came with this Google+ post, and Sony gave it a considerable amount of time in the 30-second spot you see above.

The sensor is said to be able to rival the quality put out by the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom and the Nokia Lumia 1020, except without all the girth needed for a quality lens. It remains to be seen if the sensor can really live up to those lofty expectations, but we should find all of that out when Sony kicks their IFA Berlin press conference off on September 4th.
