May 10, 2013, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Looks like Sony has charted out big plans to be winners in the smartphone arena. Rumors suggest that the company might be preparing a monstrous cameraphone slated for release this fall. The new upcoming handset could be the most powerful phone device to date.

Over the last few weeks, we have been hearing about a new handset from Sony named the Honami i1 and now rumor mills suggest that it will be also called the Sony i1.

This beast will come with the latest Snapdragon 800 chipset with a 2.3GHz quad-core Krait 400 processor, Adreno 330 graphics and 2GB of RAM. The handset would also feature a 5-inch 1080p HD display with Sony’s Triluminos technology, similar to a Sony TV.


The key feature of the handset will be its camera. According to rumors, it will feature a super 16-megapixel or 20-megapixel CMOS sensor that packs Sony’s BIONZ imaging processor and a Xenon flash to deliver excellent shots.

This beautifully designed handset will have a body made of glass, metal and traces of carbon fiber. The Honami i1 would probably run the latest version of Android along with new, custom Sony UI.

The rest of the rumored specs include 32GB of internal storage, a 3,000 mAh battery and front facing stereo speakers. The handset would support LTE connectivity and will have water and dust resistance capabilities.

At a thickness of 10 mm, the Honami i1 is not bulky, nor slim. Based on the rumor, this handset is expected to be made official at the IFA venue this year. Aren’t you ready for the cute monster?
