Sony Honami i1, also referred by its code name Ray3, has been the talk of the tech town for quite some time now. It has been hitting the online world with various kind of leaks and rumors. while yet another Sony handset, sequel to Honami has already sprung up on online prior to Honami's announcement slated on September 4, at IFA Berlin. Moreover, specs of Honami's Mini variant have already been leaked online. And looking at the leaked specs leak, looks like Japanese manufacturer might just want to keep it simple this time by retaining the specs of the original Honami in its miniature model.
Perhaps, the most awaited camera-centric smartphone from Sony will not only match the likes of Nokia Lumia 1020 and Samsung Galaxy Zoom among others but also affect the smartphone arena with its mini variant of Honami.
According to the specs published on Esato forums, Sony Honami mini will pack a 4.3 inch Triluminos display which is also incorporated in Xperia Z Ultra. The resolution output will rate at 720 x 1280 pixels. Further, the leak also suggests that the mini variant of Honami i1 will be powered by a 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 coupled with 2GB RAM and 16GB of internal storage.
Moreover, microSD slot will also be available. Here is a bit of a difference on the battery section because mini comes with 2400mAh battery while Honami i1 is said to be powered by 3050 mAh battery. The best part is that there will be an exactly same 20.7MP camera present in mini Honami with the same Sony G lens, f/2.0 aperture and the same 1/2.3″ sensor.
However, small changes that will be seen between the two handsets could possible be in the display front and the battery. No other changes can be highlighted from the leak. However, there is no official confirmation of any sort supporting the leakes specs so far.
The most important aspect of Honami i1 is the 20MP camera which is also possibly appearing on mini variant. If the leaked specs turn out to be true, it will probably be the most threatening move from Sony against its fellow competitors like Nokia and Samsung. Moreover, giving both Honami and its mini variant same specs with a minimal differences will definitely worry giants who has been giving "mini" signatures to its sequal devices like Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini and HTC One mini.
