As more and more details of Sony Honami Xperia Z1 smartphone leak, we are getting a clearer picture of what device the company has made and we could even conclude what place in the market the smartphone cum phablet is going to take. Just a few days ago, a photo of the Xperia Z1 leaked revealing a lot about the design of the device. Earlier today, two more images of the high end smartphones found their way to the internet and we can finally ascertain, if the images are legitimate, that the Sony Xperia Z1 or Honami will be available in at least 3 colors – Black, White and Purple – and that it has a metal frame inside it.
The two new images of the device published on GSMInsider and they reveal a metal frame that shows all the covers and connectors of the device, which is waterproof just like its predecessor the Sony Xperia Z. If you are keen, you will also notice that the three colors the Sony Xperia Z1 will come in are the same exact colors the Sony Xperia Z is available in. What does this mean?
What we can say now is that the same amazing build of the Sony Xperia Z is coming to the Z1. Alleged press render of the device leaked earlier today, revealing a device that is almost identical in shape and build to the Sony Xperia Z – except that although it will be slightly bigger, it will also be slightly thinner than the Xperia Z. The leaked metal chassis that first appeared on a Taiwanese Supplier website proves that the Xperia Z1 has keys and slots for the power button, the volume rocker keys, a physical camera button as well as a microSD card slot right on the metal frame. The site goes ahead to note that the keys and slots on the metal frame all have waterproof layers.
With the leakage of the Honami’s press render, what else can we expect to know about the phone during its launch? As a summary, we already know that the Xperia Z1 will come with a 20.7 megapixels rear camera with Exmor RS and Sony G Lens, a 2.2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm snapdragon 800 processor, 2 GB of RAM, a 5 inch full HD display and 32 GB internal memory. Sony is expected to launch the Xperia Z1 on September 4th during the 2013 IFA event in Berlin Germany.
