Sony has been very busy this year in both the smartphone and tablet markets, hoping to recapture its former glory. Now Sony is starting to send out invitations for its press event at IFA 2013 on September 4 (2 days before the official event begins).

Remember how Sony had an event in Paris earlier in the month, and we were all adamant that the Honami (Xperia i1) would be announced at the event. Well that event came and went, and we were still without the Sony Honami.

With Sony holding a press event at IFA 2013, it would be the perfect time to launch the Sony Honami and possibly take a bit of shine off of the other big smartphone release at IFA, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

By all accounts the Sony Honami will be a beast of a smartphone, and is rumored to feature a quad-core Snapdragon 800, a 20-megapixel back facing camera, 2GB of RAM, a 3,000 mAh battery, and a 5-inch Full HD display.

If the Honami is launched at IFA 2013, the normally calm floors could turn into a battleground for two titans of the smartphone market in the Note 3 and the Sony Honami.
