Is Sony Xperia Z Getting Qualcomm Update or Is It Honami?

Latest update of the Sony Xperia Z actually came from the Twitter post that was posted by Eldar Murtazin where he said "Trying updated version of xperia z with snapdragon 800. Its really fast :)". Russian Twitter user Eldar Murtazin further in his tweet said "proto had lcd3 screen like htc one. But I dont believe that sony save it to commercial model" but later added one more post saying that it could have a worse screen. However, as of now there is no confirmations or hints from Sony and the regarding, whether Xperia Z will come with Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chip also remains a vague possibility.

To remind the readers, the existing Xperia Z model which was announced at CES 2013 and released on February 9, comes with the 5-inch display with 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) resolution and Sony Bravia Engine 2 technology and a 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor.

This is not the end of the Sony story, but there has been a couple of more rumors regarding the brand as it is also said that codenamed "Honami" with 5 inch display is also work in progress for Sony and it is likely to come soon (at least as in a leak). The "Honami" is also rumored to come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC as well. Thus there could be a possibility about Eldar using Honami instead of Xperia Z and doth are rumored to to have a 5 inch display.

However, leaving the rumors aside Sony has also scheduled a few new media event on June 25 in Munich and on July 4 in Paris, where it is reported to unveil the massive 6.44-inch Xperia Z Ultra (ZU/Togari) smartphone. Thus, Togari can be expected to come sooner in the market. But Xperia Z with Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 and Honami has just been in the rumors and so far no mentions have been made by Sony regarding the two devices.
