Leaked image supposedly teases Sony Honami September 4th reveal

Sony’s upcoming Android flagship, codenamed Honami, is by no means a secret. We have seen numerous leaks and rumors over the past few month and now we can add another one to that list: an official looking teaser image.

The image comes from a Chinese source who claims this is directly from Sony and it’s a teaser for their upcoming Honami handset. The image points for September 4th as the reveal date which coincides with the date that Sony is holding its IFA press conference.

The Honami, which is expected to retail under the Xperia i1 name, is a monster of a device rumoured to feature a Snapdragon 800 CPU, a huge five-inch-plus display and a 20-megapixel backside camera that comes with a Sony G lens.

Even though this isn’t official just yet, the good news is that anxious folks have less than a month to wait until they finally get to see what Sony’s been working on.

I used to brand aligned to Sony but the last few handsets I've owned have left me lacking. I converted to Nokia after getting windows 8 and find the brand delivery exceptional. Next TV I get will be Samsung.

Is that Sony's new slogan? Make Believe? Do they know that the statement "make believe" is the US means fiction or made up?

It is make.believe

Please note the dot in the middle. As far as I know, it is not supposed to be a sentence/phrase/statement; they a're trying to transmit: dream/imagine, then make it real!

I saw the dot, but I also understand how it will be read as "make believe". I was also just trying to be humorous. Guess it failed.

Looks like a very promising device. Not been a fan of Sony stuff in the past, but it'll be interesting to see it in the flesh.

(Offtopic) What a great place for a watermark!

Look up the Z or ZL, both great devices, never liked Sony before that either but now owning and ZL I love it. Sony really did a good job and this upcoming device should also fit the "high" class well.

Specs:

5" Full HD Triluminos display
20MP cam (rumoured 4k video recording)
Waterproof without flap on audio jack
Magnetic charger (no need to open flaps)
Snapdragon 800

What a shame it would be if it didn't have a 4K display to show the 4K video recordings. I need to see every pixel, otherwise it's just wasted technology.

True. It was there in one of the prototypes but from what I've heard the 4K recording has been removed because it doesn't exactly have a use yet.

eh don't worry, the 4K definition is already twisted as it is.... 4K resolution should be 4096 × 3072 which is 12MP.... 4K TV's list 4K as 4x the pixels as 1080p.... not the def it should be..... TV's are listing it as 4K (3840 x 2160) Resolution... so once again... the Mfg's are screwing the consumer based on a definition instead of 4096 pixels across we get 4x the resolution... which should mean it's a 4X TV not a 4K (K as in thousand) TV ugh...

4K should be almost 6x the resolution of 1080p TV if they did it right
