Now an alleged Sony teaser has been leaked which is being claimed to be for the company's upcoming flagship smartphone, the Sony Xperia i1 Honami.
The images appeared on Chinese site, Digi-wo and were first spotted up by XperiaBlog. The teaser images show a purple device across a black background. The leaked images show that the device's edges are more rounded much like the Xperia Z Ultra, than straight, as seen in earlier leaked images that looked close to the company's flagship smartphone, the Xperia Z.
It also shows a glimpse of the right side of the device that houses the power key, flap and the volume rocker keys. The image also teases a September 4 date at the bottom with 'Berlin' mentioned beneath.
The Sony Xperia Honami is rumoured to sport a 5.0-inch full-HD display. It's likely to be powered by a 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor with 2GB of RAM. The device is said to feature a 20-megapixel Exmor RS camera that is expected to sport a Sony G-lens and BIONZ image processor. The phone is also expected to feature a 2.0-megapixel front facing camera. It's may include a 16GB internal storage and a 3000mAh battery. The device is said to run Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
The device is also said to come with IP57 certification which means it would be dust-and water-resistant.
