Phones the Size of Tablets; Xperia:
With the LG G2 getting an official announcement from the company and its specifications being made public, it is time to now focus on the next big upcoming smartphone about which we don’t know everything yet; the Sony Xperia Honami.
Being labeled as the successor of the Xperia Z as the next flagship phone of the Japanese maker, Honami has a lot riding on it. The phone had its first taste of public exposure when a few spy shots of it leaked onto the web back in June. After that, a series of leaks providing information about its camera and other hardware specs were seen. And we have to admit, every new leak got us a little more excited about this phone.
The Honami is rumored to sport a 5-inch HD Triluminos display powered by the X-reality engine. In addition to this, there is a 2.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor on board with 2GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage expandable via microSD card. But, these are not the main highlights of the phone. The main highlight is the mammoth 20.7 MP camera with Sony G-lens and BIONZ image processing that is capable of 4K video recording. The Honami is also apparently IP57 certified meaning it will be dust-protected and will be able to withstand a meter of water for about 30 minutes without too much damage, a Sony standard now. The phone is expected to be launched on September, 4th.
Now the curtains officially seem to be coming off as Sony has made the entire Honami software set including UI and apps available to users by way of a custom ROM made for phones like Xperia Z.
So, if you want to check out how the Honami experience is different from the Xperia Z experience, then install the ROM on your phone and see for yourself. But, if you are nervous about installing a ROM and still want your curiosity sated, then a YouTube user by the name of Ashton Tekno has the remedy for you. He has uploaded a 12 minute long video on the video-sharing site that walks you through some of the new features of the upcoming phone and gives you an overall idea about the UI that comes along with it. Check it out below.
