Sony’s Xperia i1 Honami is said to pack the powerful Snapdragon 800 chipset by Qualcomm. Also, the phone packs the ability to capture 20 MP camera shots (resolution of 5248 x 3936), a new Super Resolution algorithm, 4K video recording (3840 x 2160).

The system dump itself isn’t brand new, but more than a month old dated June 2. It is entirely possible that Sony continued tweaking the UI, making more changes, adding new features and apps since then. After all, Honami’s launch date is still a little bit away.
