Just when other smart phone maker has been churning out new flagship models that shadows their Xperia Z/ZL models, Sony is seems to be working hard on their next upcoming model. Coming in 2nd half of 2013, Sony is rumoured to be releasing 2 new models with the codename Togari and Honami.
The Togari model is rumoured to be a large form factor device which comes with a massive 6.44″ 1080p HD display while the Honami boasts as a “One Sony” model which combines the best of Sony. Although that sounds very cliche, the Honami seems to be a very special model especially when it comes to camera. It is rumoured that it will come with a 16MP or possible 20MP shooter with a larger sensor size of 1/1.6″. In comparison, that sensor size is right between the Nokia N8 (1/1.83″) and the Nokia 808 PureView (1/1.2″).
In terms of design, it is said to be slim just like the Xperia Z and Xperia Tablet Z. Processing wise, the Honami is said to be running on a newer quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 clocked at 2.3GHz and comes with a non-removable battery between 2700mAh to 3000mAh capacity. If the rumours are true, this would be an interesting phone which might give Samsung and HTC a run for their money.
