Honami camera AR
One of the most talked about features of the upcoming Sony “Honami” smartphone is its camera. How could something with the ability to capture 20-megapixel photos and record full 4K resolution video not catch anyone’s attention, right?

A lot of people are understandably looking forward to seeing this beast of a smartphone camera in action. Perhaps you might even be one of them. Well, what if we told you that you can actually grab a phone and start enjoying the Honami’s exclusive camera software features right now?

That’s the product of the work put in by user krabappel2548 over at XDA Developers forum, where instructions on using the Honami’s nifty camera app with some of today’s top Android-powered Sony devices have already been posted. Thanks to krabappel2548, the Sony Honami’s camera app can now be used on the Sony Xperia Z, Sony Xperia ZL, and the Sony Xperia Tablet Z.

The app itself functions just like many other camera apps available for Android. But again, it comes with a number of exclusive software features, such as pre-configured art filters, visual search, ultra fast focusing, and augmented reality.

If you’ve already made up your mind about getting the Honami as soon as it comes out, then perhaps you can get and use its ported camera app for now just to tide yourself over.

Screenshots of the Sony Honami camera app are available below — it should work fine with devices that are running Android 4.2.2 — followed by a link to the source thread over at XDA Developers.
