The iconic Japanese tech giant, Sony is reportedly working on a smartphone codenamed “Honami” packed with some serious camera technology. Sony Honami is being worked upon thoroughly in an effort to combine Sony’s Cyber-shot technology wrapped into a handset.
The upcoming device is rumored to come with a 20 MP camera with Sony 1/1.6″ Exmor RS stacked sensor and Cyber-shot G Lens. 1/1.6″ size is huge for a smartphone and it means it will be able to soak much more photons in, bringing in better low-light shots, alike a Cyber-shot camera. It means Honami will have the biggest camera sensor in Android ecosystem with only Nokia 808 Pureview having a bigger sensor than Honami. It will also come with a Xenon or Dual LED flash, which will be 10 times brighter than ordinary flash on smartphones. In the software part it will house a all new image processing algorithm and a revamped camera UI, similar to Sony’s Cyber-shot digital cameras.
All this camera tech means Honami will be a hefty smartphone with around 10mm thickness. The body will be a combination of glass, metal and carbon fibre to give an ultra glamorous body. As for the phone itself will come with a 5-inch “WhiteMagic” 1080p full HD IPS-NEO display, a powerful 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM and a huge 2700mAh battery.
Sony Honami could be announced at IFA 2013 to take place this September in Berlin. Let’s see if Sony is able to pull this off and create that “One” (pun intended) phone to rule the smartphone market.
