Sony already sent the invites for its press event that is scheduled for September 4 where the company is expected to unveil its next flagship device – Sony Xperia i1 Honami. A new report from Bloomberg backs this and mentions that Sony will unveil the device on September 4 before the electronic trade show kicks off. The report also mentions that the device will feature the same imaging technology that is embedded in its cameras and ultra-definitions TVs.
According to Bloomberg,
Sony Corp. (6758) will introduce a flagship Xperia smartphone next month featuring imaging technology developed for its cameras and ultra-high definition TVs, according to two people familiar with the matter.
To lure customers from Apple Inc. (AAPL) and Samsung Electronics Co. (005930), the Tokyo-based company is using “X-Reality” picture-enhancement chips developed for Bravia TVs and sensors for its Cyber-shot cameras, the people said.
Earlier leaks suggested that the device will feature a 5 inch full HD display with 1080p resolution, quad-core Snapdragon 800 SoC clocked at 2.3GHz with 2GB RAM, 16GB internal storage with a microSD card slot and a 20MP camera – which we have seen in a number of leaks in the past.
Actually, the report doesn’t reveal anything which we didn’t knew in the past but the only thing to note here is that it is coming from a reliable source. So, we have every reason to believe that we will see a new Xperia device before IFA kicks off on September 6.
