Sony is enjoying the popularity it started gaining from its recently launched smartphone, the Sony Xperia Z. And now it seems that the company is going to be tougher competition against leading smartphone makers.
Sony is once again the subject of rumors about a smartphone, but not the Xperia Z. Sony is expected to bring another flagship device, codenamed Sony Honami, this summer.
According to a report from Phandroid, the Sony Honami is going to sport a huge 20-megapixel camera . Apart from the camera there are also rumors that Sony is going to make the device extraordinary, with every department in the company working on it.
The smartphone is reported to sport a 5-inch full HD display with 1920x1080 pixel resolution. The display is supposed to be the IPS White Magic. The smartphone is expected to be powered by Qualcomm's quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.3 GHz and it will also have Adreno 330 GPU with support of 2 GB of RAM.
The device is expected to make an appearance at this year's IFA in Berlin in September, but the details available about the rumored device are very sketchy and we won't be able to believe any of the rumors until we get something "real" coming directly from Sony.
Sony is rumored to be working on two smartphones at a time and the other device is codenamed Sony Togari, with model number C680X. The Togari is going to a bigger device than Hanomi and will come with a 6.44-inch display. The phablet is said to be very thin and might come with an all-glass model.
Nothing much about the Togari is known as of now, but reports suggest the device will be seen sometime in July in the Japanese market.
If the devices really exist somewhere in the manufacturing units of Sony, then leading Android phonemakers like Samsung and HTC should expect some real competition, as Sony can beat them in some areas like camera and music support to the device.
Sony has already started capturing the market of these companies with the Xperia Z and ZL devices.
