Sony’s teaser campaign ahead of its IFA 2013 press event continued today with a new image. Earlier ones already gave us a look at the power button and a good hint that its new flagship will be waterproof. Asking “Have we captured your attention yet…?” today we got a closeup look at the smartphone’s camera. It effectively confirms rumours that the Sony Honami (now expected to launch as the Sony Xperia Z1) will come with a Sony G lens (and a flash). The branding will be familiar to anyone who’s used Sony’s digital SLR cameras.
Past rumours hinted several times that the Sony Honami will come with a 20.7MP rear camera with a 1 2/3-inch Exmor RS sensor. It could well be among the first smartphone cameras to be able to capture 4K (4096 × 2160) video content. On the front, a 2MP Exmor R camera is expected.
Other specifications include a 2.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, Google Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, LTE connectivity, a 5-inch FHD (1080×1920) Triluminos display, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of onboard storage and a 3,000mAh battery. It should also be IP57 or IP58 certified (dustproof and waterproof).
Just over a week remains before Sony unveils the Xperia Z1 at its September 4th IFA 2013 press event.
