If a recent report is true, and we sort of hope it is, the upcoming Sony i1 Honami is a monster device. Allegedly shown in the blurry pic you see below, not much can be learned about the aesthetics of the device. The specs being mentioned, however, are something to behold.

If you’re wondering what a true next generation device would have under the hood, look no further:

  • 5.0-inch screen at 1920×1080, 2000:1 Contrast Ratio
  • Snapdragon 800, clocked at 2.3 ghz
  • 2 GB RAM
  • 3000mAh battery
  • NFC
  • WIFI Miracast
  • 32 GB Internal memory, with MicroSD slot
  • 4G LTE
  • IR Remote
  • 2/3″ 20/13 MP Exmor RS camera with Sony G lens, a Cybershot Camera, and Interchangeable lenses
  • BlueTooth 4.0
  • 1080p, 2.2 Megapixel front camera
  • Android 4.2.2
  • Shatterproof front glass
  • Metal and/or Carbon Fiber shell

In addition to that, we could see a revised Xperia UI, S-Master MX mobile audio amplifier, and dual speakers. The report also suggests an improved stamina mode, so that big battery could last quite a while. All told, this is one device that will turn heads, Sony or not. If we’re making a wish list, we hope this list of goodies is really a Sony Nexus 5. The report suggests the device will make an appearance in the fall, and with Google giving I/O back to developers, it’s clear the fall is Nexus time. Sony makes really nice devices, and a Nexus phone could give them a needed lift back into smartphone prominence.
