Just a day ago, images shot with the 20MP camera of Honami i1 from Sony appeared online. However, the latest sample image was the second one that was spotted online. The previous one came around the second week this month. However, now the latest update on the same device has appeared that suggests that the massive camera centric handset from Sony would be called Z1 instead of Honami i1 or Xperia i1.

Sony Honami i1 Reportedly Said To Debut as Xperia Z1


This name makes quite a lot of sense altogether as it matches the Sony iteration Z like in Xperia Z, ZL, Xperia Z Ultra and others like ZR. The information which is yet not confirmed officially comes from the twitter user DooMLoRD who posted a tweet saying "Heard an interesting rumor... Xperia Honami might be called Z1 (Z One) :-)".
