Sony Xperia i1 'Honami' specs leaked, including 1080p display, quad-core chip
Just one day after Sony Korea purportedly revealed its 20-megapixel Sony Xperia i1 – joining an ever-growing list of beefy smartphones in the market packing huge cameras – some new specs for the Sony handset have surfaced online.
Taiwanese website ePrice reported on the details, so it’s not exactly concrete information, but it’s still worth going over. According to the report, the Sony Xperia i1 – codenamed Honami – will sport a 20.7-megapixel camera and a 1/2.3-inch image sensor.
That’s not quite as impressive as the Nokia Lumia 1020′s 1/1.5-inch image sensor, although it’s equal to the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom.

As for when this device will first show up, ePrice says sometime between 6 September and 11 September at IFA in Berlin. So, stay tuned for then.
