Sony Xperia Honami i1 design impresses


We’ve been bringing you news and leaked information about the Sony Xperia i1, also referred to as the Sony Xperia Honami. Just a few days ago we heard more leaked specs about this upcoming smartphone, and today we have a design to show you that greatly impressed us. While this is a concept vision of the Xperia Honami, we think that plenty of people waiting for this phone would be happy to see it appear looking just like this.

It can be really interesting to look at concept designs, as it’s always good to get an idea of what devices could look like, and it would be nice to see Sony come up with something similar for the real deal. This creation of the Xperia Honami comes from designer Reeflotz and the camera section is based on the Sony TX200V Cybershot camera.

A recent leak of the real Sony Xperia i1 Honami came up with specs such as a 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor, 5-inch Full HD display, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage, expandable via microSD. Other specs included a 20.7-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front-facing shooter, and 3000 mAh battery, and this concept reflects these specs.


We should point out though that these specs are not yet confirmed for the genuine Xperia i1, but hopefully it won’t be too much longer until we hear official news about this. Obviously we don’t know what the phone will look like yet either, but we’d love to hear what you think about this concept version of the handset that we think is beautifully sleek.

Would you like to see the Sony Xperia i1 Honami smartphone launched looking very similar to this design? Send your comments to let us know.

    All it needs to be perfect is 32GB minimum storage and an IR blaster. I’m tired of the boring designs of Samsung, and crappy execution of HTC (gorgeous hardware handicapped by bloated Android skin, locking the bootloader with S-on, and not providing SD support, never mind updates).

      Moto X might be the answer with the Clear Pixel tech that is seemingly set to be better than what HTC tried to sell to the public with lower resolution ultra pixel tech. Couple that with good fast dual core power efficient SoC from qualcomm its a very good phone to be had atleast on paper. Fanboys and others obsessed with the need for quad core and other nonsense high spec sheets will not be impressed. As long as its giving you good battery life with all the other good usable features why the heck should we care right? Best of all you’ll get updates for all the Google releases instantly. Its also going to be sold at ultra cheap prices if the rumors are to be believed. I am betting Moto X will be another major hit more than the Nexus 4 was.

    Very nice but it should have been used for the UltrA or even bigger like 7 inches. The sound quality of xperias is always the problem. Low sound, poor tweeter and no sub-woofer. The bezel for xperias are too prominent. Have a look on S4 and XL. Almost the front side is consumed by the screen. Very nice and minimalist…….

    wow, I’m not one for many concept designs but this one is absolutely beautiful. This would turn heads unlike SONYs other boring black rectangles

    I like the design aspect as long as Sony follows minimal bezel of the Xperia ZL. This is the only reason I chose the ZL over the Z. Too much bezel on the Z and as well as this concept.
