Sony Xperia i1 "Honami" System dump and press renders leak out

A Sony Honami press render has been allegedly leaked. This is nothing new by itself, as we’ve seen previous purported press renders of the phone. However, they didn’t quite match the alleged real-life pictures that surfaced on the interwebs recently. To put it simply, this phone, claimed to be the Honami, wasn’t really looking like this render, also claimed to be of the Honami.

However, today’s press renders, reportedly grabbed from a leaked Honami system dump, are somewhat closer to the pictures we’ve seen. You can instantly spot the Windows Phone-like dedicated camera shutter button on the bottom left, as well as the aluminum chassis which embraces the phone. The button placement on the Sony Honami press render also seems to match, but unfortunately there’s no render of the back of the device.

Now about the system dump ...First of all, a number of strings in the build.prop have revealed some key specs for the handset. This includes a Snapdragon 800 chipset, the ability to capture 20MP photos (resolution of 5248 x 3936) with a new Super Resolution algorithm set and record video at 4K (4000 x 2000) with aspect ratio of 2:1. Other camera features include ISO up to 12800 as well as a Steadyshot mode.

Other new imaging features includes Timeshift burst (glorified burst mode) which allows you to shift back and forth in time to enjoy and share the best moment. Sony has also created a camera API allowing the ability to add functions to the camera app called “Xperia camera add-ons”. Additionally, see some new camera icons below (from left to right): Bokeh, Info-eye, Manual, Socialcast, Timeshift and Effect mode.

Sony is also planning to release a new Augmented Reality app, with some screenshots mode. The icon grid below shows a number of different Augmented Reality modes.

A new app is Info-eye, the visual search app based on kooaba. The Info Eye app will have a new UX for Sony Xperia devices. We imagine this is something similar to Nokia’s HERE City Lens app, giving you information about the places you visit and the objects around you. Tap the question mark icon for capture tips. This is the app that is seen on the Smartphone render with the Eiffel tower .Below are some of the leaked screenshots - these pictures are from XperiaBlog and click the link to read more . The Xperia "Honami" will be released on the 4th of July in a special event in Paris ,France
