Sony has been teasing its upcoming flagship smartphone in pieces. The Sony Xperia Z1, codename ‘Honami’, is expected to be officially unveiled at IFA on September 4th in Berlin.
Sony continued its tagline of ‘The Best of Sony’ on all the images on Twitter and Facebook. We’ve seen the Z1 be water and dust resistant with IP 55/58 certification, and that “it’s the smartphone everyone’s been talking about… not long now.” The latest hint confirms all the previous leaks were correct with a quick look at the camera’s new Sony G lens, noting “Have we captured your attention yet…?”
Rumours are that we’ll see the Xperia Z1 sport a 20.7MP camera and the G Lens is the same naming that Sony uses for its DSLR cameras. The camera is expected to be capable of recording 4K (4096 x 2160) resolution videos at 30fps, plus also come with a 2MP Exmor R front-facing camera that captures 1080p HD videos.
Other leaked specs of the Z1 have it coming with a 5-inch 1920×1080 Triluminos display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3, 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, LTE connectivity, 16GB internal storage, 3100 mAh battery, dual stereo speakers, IR remote, running Android OS 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with dimensions of 144 x 73.9 x 8.3mm.
