Sony’s upcoming flagship Android handset, originally codenamed Honami and now the Xperia Z1, is set for announcement on September 4 and will be revealed in Berlin during IFA as well as a regional event in Malaysia (the crew will be on both events).
This leaked press render of the Xperia Z1 has a lot of similarities with the earlier Xperia Z but instead of the tempered glass construction, the Xperia Z1 will have metal (most probably aluminum) chassis.
The main hardware components are also similar to the Z Ultra — 5-inch full HD display, Snapdragon 800 2.2GHz, 2GB RAM and a sizable 3,000mAh of Li-Ion battery. That’s on top of the very promising 20MP rear camera with G Lens.
We’ll be covering the exclusive Sony event in Malaysia from September 4-6 and we will also be flying to Berlin for the IFA on September 3-7 so expect more hands-on of this device by then.
