    An image has surfaced claiming that the Sony i1 Honami will indeed sport a 20-megapixel rear shooter. While it may not be convincing by itself, it does line up with an earlier leak that claims the Sony i1 Honami will use a 20.7-megapixel shooter. The System Dump we previously heard about even points towards a 20MP shooter.

    Additionally, at full resolution (20MP), the smartphone can take 4:3 photos, along with 16:9 photos when you go down to the standard 8-megapixels. While it may sound mouthwatering and everything you ever dreamed of in a camera on a smartphone, it’s very easy to fake things like this. So until there’s actual confirmation, it’d be wise to take this with a grain of salt, for now.

    Speaking of official confirmation, it shouldn’t be much longer before the Sony i1 Honami is announced. The company is expected to announce the long-awaited device during a press conference at IFA 2013 in Berlin, Germany on Sept. 4. Being only a couple of months away, it shouldn’t be long before we begin seeing an increase of leaks.

    Regardless, I’m really excited for the Sony i1 Honami, especially if it’ll have something like Nokia’s PureView technology. What are your opinions on this device so far? Are you excited to possibly have a smartphone with really good camera software coming soon? Let me know in the comments, I’d love to hear your thoughts.

      Can’t wait to see the camera comparison between this and Lumia 1020!

      About the photo: why does it jump straight from 8mp to 20mp? Seems suspicious to me

        Same here! This can’t be real.

      Yeah because everyneeds more megapixels, call me when image quality bests the high end Lumias.

        Same here i’m just doubtful of Sony’s move trying to win customers by putting more pixels on their smartphone flagships without giving emphasis on software optimization to improve the Quality of photos.

        I wish I could have Lumia 1020 running Jellybean 4.2…… :)

      isnt that 21 mp since you would round up?

      Sony has to focus on Software optimization on their top-notch camera hardware or else people will snob on this so-called 20MP fucking sensor if the photo quality will be like the quality of their previous flagship like Xperia S and Xperia Z with sub-par photo quality.

      My Samsung Galaxy S3′s 8MP does better than those Sony flagships …..yawn :(

      FAKE!

      Notice how there is a massive amount glare allover the screen EXCEPT one the box with the resolution selection, as that was photoshopped in after the photo was taken!
