An alleged Sony Xperia Honami camera sample has leaked. The photo shows what may be a preview of the capabilities of the 20.65Mpx camera that the upcoming smartphone supposedly offers.
The Sony Xperia Honami camera sample appears to be of a bike with a digital display. The EXIF data next to the photo shows that it was taken on August 10 using the Sony C6902 camera. The photo has a size of 3936 x 5248 pixels and an aspect ratio of 4:3. It was also taken with an aperture of f/2.0 and captured without the use of flash.
Earlier rumors have suggested that the Sony Xperia Honami will have a 20 MP Exmor RS camera that features a Sony G-lens, a BIONZ image processor, and a 2.3” image sensor. Last month, the smartphone’s 20 MP camera had been spotted as one of the features of the smartphone on a Taiwanese e-commerce website. The same has been revealed to support 4K video capture according to a leaked system dump.
This powerful camera will likely be one of the key selling points of the Sony Xperia Honami. Such smartphone is expected to provide some competition to the Nokia Lumia 1020 and the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom, both of which also give much attention to their cameras.
Apart from a 20 MP camera, however, the Sony Xperia Honami is believed to offer a 5-inch 1080p Triluminos display, 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor with 2GB of RAM, 16GB internal storage, a microSD card slot for expansion, 3000mAh battery, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, resistance against dust and water, and a 2 MP front-facing camera to complement the 20 MP snapper. Furthermore, it will support Wifi(802.11 a/b/g/n/ac), Wifi Hotspot Function, Bluetooth EDR and Bluetooth 4.0, GSM/UMTS/LTE. The smartphone will supposedly measure 144 x 73.9 x 8.3mm and come in three color choices: white, black, and purple.
Sony will unveil the device on September 4th in Berlin, Germany during IFA 2013. A poster teasing the device has already been leaked a few days ago, showing such launch details.
