A few images apparently taken by the Sony Xperia i1 Honami have surfaced online, giving us the first look at what the camera on the device will be capable of.
The Honami’s camera is supposed to be a 20.7-megapixel unit (with f/2.0 aperture and a 1/2.3″ sensor), but the camera samples have all been taken at 8-megapixel with a 16:9 aspect ratio. However, it’s still easy to see the Honami’s camera is capable of taking some quality pictures with plenty of detail (though the outdoor shot seems to be a bit over-sharpened), despite running what is most likely pre-final software.
Apart from a great camera, the Honami is expected to sport top shelf internals, including a 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 5-inch 1080p TRILUMINOUS display, and a 3,000mAh battery. It is expected to be unveiled on September 4th, and a mini version of the Honami has been rumored as well, carrying the same high-end hardware and camera but with a smaller screen.
There’s no guarantee that these pictures really were taken with the Honami, so keep that pinch of salt handy when going through the camera samples. Oh, and keep hoping Sony doesn’t mess this up and disappoint us with a camera that fails to meet expectations.
