The battle for the ‘mini’ line of devices is getting hotter and hotter. Samsung was the first one to roll out Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini and then it came out with S4 Mini. HTC has also joined the bandwagon by producing the HTC One Mini and Sony is building the Xperia Honami Mini which will take on the other Android ‘mini’ phones.
Sony is all set to release its flagship smartphone codenamed as Sony Honami in September’s IFA event. Some other sources have revealed that the phone will called Sony Xperia i1 whereas an active member from XDA Developer forum named DooMLoRD has revealed ‘Sony Xperia Z1’ as the name of the new flagship device. The Sony Honami will be soon followed by the Sony Honami Mini.
What’s so cool about the Honami Mini is that manufacturers will be building the device without downsizing the specs of the phone. According to the recent leaks, the Honami Mini will be sporting a 4.3inch Triluminous technology 720p display. The phone will be powered with 2.2GHz Snapdragon 800 processor which is the same CPU that will power the Sony Honami.
The Sony Honami Mini will also come with 2GB RAM and an internal storage capacity of 16GB. It will support external storage on microSD. The 2400mAh battery is what that will power the Sony Honami Mini. Like the larger model, even the smaller Honami will feature a 20.7 MP camera.
The 20.7 MP camera lenses on both the Honami is going to be the USP of the device. The 20MP camera on the Honami Mini will come with f/2.0 aperture and 1/ 2.3” sensor which are also present on the original Honami. So when we look at the major specs of the phone, we can understand that Sony desires to offer the same set of the features that is present on the larger Honami but only reduces the size of the display and battery capacity.
The HTC One Mini and Galaxy S4 Mini both have downsized specs. However, the Sony Honami Mini has got powerful specs and certainly seems to be a better phone the other two. This makes the Honami Mini one of the most awaited phones from Sony.
Sony will be unveiling the larger Sony Honami on September 4 before the commencement of IFA even that will be held at Berlin. However, till now Sony has made any concrete official announcement on the original Sony Honami. So, we will have to wait little longer to hear about the Honami Mini from Sony.
Do you think the Sony Honami will bring a revolution to the phones that are dubbed as ‘Mini’? Will you consider buying the Sony Honami Mini over Galaxy S4 Mini and HTC One Mini? We would like to know what you think about the powerful Sony Honami Mini
