IFA Berlin 2013 is around the corner and the Japanese giant Sony may announce Honami i1Mini on September 4. While multiple reports suggest that Xperia Z Ultra maker will be definitely announce Xperia Z1 at IFA Berlin tech show, but the same time the rumors of Honami Mini are also flying high. Few days back, GizBot informed you that a report was surfaced in respect to Honami i1 Mini.
Moreover, the report also mentioned about the alleged specifications of the device. Now, it seems that Sony is indeed working on Honami i1 Mini for quite some time. Recently, someone over at XDA developer forums has flashed a picture of supposed Honami i1 next to the BlackBerry Q10.
The photo is blurry in nature and it's rather difficult to say whether this Sony made device is the long rumored Honami i1 Mini or not. It could be Sony Xperia Z, but very few would agree to this point. The Xperia Z is longer and wider compared to BB Q10. A senior member over at XDA Forums writes -:
"Just ran some numbers and that Sony phone would be about 109.24mm tall and 57.88mm wide. Compare that against the 123.8 x 58.6mm iPhone 5.
IF this is Honami Mini then Sony are bloody wizards for being able to achieve something like that. Thickness is the only unknown factor. Sure it could be a low/mid range phone, or this could be a hoax... All the insiders seem to believe Honami Mini won't be seen until December at the earliest. What're the chances it'll be seen as early as IFA? "
The mini version of Xperia Z1 will have a display size between 4- 4.3-inches having resolution of 720p HD display. It will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor coupled with 2GB of RAM and 16GB ROM. The battery size is also said to be reduced in comparison to Xperia Z1. Moreover, the 20.7 MP rear facing camera with "G lens ", is also said to be same. Sony could announce this phone at IFA Berlin or later this year. The concrete details are still not available at this hour. Stay tuned to GizBot for more updates.
