Sony is rumoured to be already working on a new flagship phone, as it looks to build on the success of the four million-selling Xperia Z.
Unearthed by Chinese site ePrice, the handset, currently only known as ‘Honami’, is reportedly home to a five-inch full HD display, a 2.3GHz quad-core processor and a whopping 20-megapixel camera to outmatch just about any consumer-level DSLR out there.
The camera, which is inarguably the most standout spec of the lot, is said to feature a Cybershot CMOS sensor from Sony’s popular point-and-shoot range, along with a Carl Zeiss lens.
Elsewhere, the Honami is mooted to pack 2GB of RAM, a dedicated Walkman audio chip, a non-removable battery of up to 3,000mAh capacity and water and dust resistance capabilities just like the Xperia Z.
Meanwhile, a poster on Chinese forum Baidu who allegedly tests Sony Xperia handsets claims that the Honami will be ‘one of the most attractive phones Sony has ever made’ and bring all of Sony’s best technology in one place as part of a ‘One Sony’ branding initiative.
The unnamed tester also confirmed a leaked Sony ‘phablet’ from earlier this year.
Codenamed ‘Togari’, this allegedly rocks a 6.44-inch display with a 1080p resolution and a design similar to the Xperia Z with a glass back. Sadly, that’s about all we know about the handset so far.
Sony is hotly tipped to officially unveil both devices at the IFA expo in Berlin in September.
As always, we’ll bring you anything more we hear about them in the meantime.
