Sony H2 flagship rumour mill: Details on ‘Togari’ and ‘Honami’

by XB on 28th April 2013

in Featured Content, Rumours, Xperia Z Ultra, Xperia Z1

sony-logoSony Mobile is currently working on two new flagship handsets that will be released in the second half of this year. We have known the existence of the phones codenamed ‘Honami’ and ‘Togari’ for some time now, but with very few details. All we’ve known for sure is that the Togari will come with a display size larger than that of the Honami. However, reports from a number of Asian sites are providing some juicy rumours to digest.

The first is from a forum poster on Baidu who claims he is a tester for Sony Xperia devices. He starts with Togari, which is believed to sport a 6.44-inch 1080p display with a design similar to the Xperia Z. It is believed to be very slim (much like the Xperia Z and Xperia Tablet Z) with a glass back.

There will at least be a white colour option with a white bezel. This should appeal to those who like the all-white look of the Xperia ZL versus the Xperia Z version, which has a black face and white side/rear. The phone (or phablet if you prefer) could be launched as early as July in Japan. This ties in with the previous rumour we reported on Togari.

However, more interesting is ‘Honami’, which is believed to be the company’s ‘One Sony’ model – offering the best Sony tech in one chassis. Honami is believed to sport a 5-inch 1080p display, dedicated Walkman audio chip (S-Master MX Digital Amplifier?) and a 20MP Cyber-shot CMOS sensor with Carl Zeiss lens.

The tester goes on to say that Honami will be one of the most attractive phones Sony has ever made, even more so than the Xperia Z and iPhone 5. Honami could also see a July release, in Asia at least. Both Honami and Togari are said to be water and dust resistant.

Some of the above information is corroborated by Chinese site ePrice. It says that Honami will debut in China (with Unicom) in July and then see an international launch in August or September. This would most likely be at IFA, a traditional launch venue for H2 Sony Xperia handsets.

Honami may end up running the Snapdragon 800 chipset with 2.3GHz quad-core processor and Adreno 330 graphics says ePrice along with 2GB RAM and an embedded battery with 2700 to 3000mAh capacity. It also cites a 20MP camera sensor and says that it will come with a xenon flash and dual LED.

Lastly, another site, VR-Zone, says that the handset may run a Triluminos display according to its own sources. It also talks about the possibility of the Snapdragon 800 chipset and mentions a 16MP camera, instead of the 20MP sensor above.

Whilst all of the above are firmly rumours first and foremost, it’s hard to not be excited if they come anywhere close to being true. We’ll keep you posted with developments on both Honami and Togari.

Via Baidu, ePrice and VR-Zone.

Thanks Bob!

  • sony is not really worry about make better phones they like to have many many phone for give to the costumers slow software updATES and many bug, im a sony fan boy but next week im going for samsung, when sony do the things better i will come back!!!

  • raikow


  • omg…that’s alot

    20 mp or even 16 mp camera and cyber shot

    and amplifier for walkman

    i think that’s like a fu..cuk in samsung as..s

  • Keon Fraites

    Once Xperia Z doesn’t end up like Xperia S I have no quarrels with them releasing the phones.

  • Wow! Perhaps they’ll release three flashgrip models next year?

    I just gave away my Xperia S to get an Xperia Z! :/
    Now I’m left to wonder if these two and the cheaper L & SL will get the 4.2.2 updates, before my XZ !

    My next phone surely won’t be Sony, if they release another flashgrip this year!
    Unless, you know; if it’s a nexus!

  • Ischalk


  • Samsung’s dick will be chopped off if these specs are real!

    Bring it up Sony! It’s about time people understand why Sony is our favorite brand ;)

  • lovebmw

    Don’t care about mp, care about the software it self

  • lovebmw

    Why do you want, 4.2.2? Convince me, I have a z with 4.1. What’s do different?

  • i just need 2core krait with 2gb ram, jus it :’)

  • 2.3 GHz processor…..

  • and the flagships keep coming every 6 months or less. xperia s all over again and a reason to avoid sony phones

  • Cristi13

    So why xperia z couldn’t be like this, I mean again 5 flagships a year and the old ones left in the dust. Why it can’t a single one with all your best features. How many “the best of sony in a smartphone” exist?

  • No alternative to Sony.

  • i think it will better than z and s4 anyway cause sony wanna win the battle this year and do it’s best

  • they can’t o that,,,they must make at least 2 flagships to cope with other companies phonesphones

  • Samsung manages to have one flagship each year (Galaxy Note has the same internals). Apple has one flagship every 2 years (dismissing the s ones).

  • Raymond

    Gotta love Cyber-Shot sounds good too me that’s the old Sony (Ericsson) I know and loved. Fantastic.

  • Mumbira

    But it exactly will end up like the X10/S/T/V…

    The Z was released 2 month ago and now they think about a Z remake, 2 newer phones and and and….

    AND as it isn’t enough, the first newer phones come in TWO month…
    The Z had a even shorter lifetime than the S.

  • Cristi13

    My point is that last year they had 6.flagships and we all know what happened to the s,acro s and ion. I hope they don’t do this again again why xperia z couldn’t had that camera with xenon flash and that battery in the first place?

  • Leon

    please, not TFT displey :(

  • Let’s hope Sony delivers a good picture quality this time. It’s been a long time since they had the best camera phone. Arc was decent, but too much compression, Xperia S was good, but SGS3 was better, Xperia T was disappointing, Xperia Z was just moderate.

  • Wow

  • TechGuyChris

    It’s not coming to the U.S lol. If itdoes, the carriers wont buy it. will have to get unlocked lol. Idk whats up with US carriers lol

  • ProWeirdo

    If it will cost max. $100 more than Xperia S just on sale, I’ll come back to Sony! I wish these specs will be true!

  • Max Gonzales

    everybody want:
    -OLED DISPLAY 443ppi!!!
    -white magic display
    -bravia engine 2 pro o better!
    -triluminos display
    -cybert shot 16 – 20 MP
    -Chipset Walkman dedicado!
    -chipset Snapdragon 800 con 2,3 GHz de procesador quad-core y Adreno 330
    -the best designed in all world
    -please, not TFT display :(

    Sony is the best company in the world. Sony can do it all, because haves the enought tecnology!!!

    Don’t be so sure. Wait on iPhone 5S and SGS V + you don’t know how much will these Xperias cost.

  • PowerSonic

    sounds like alot to take.. kinda hard to digest.. hope that they maintain the older ones also well at the same time…

  • i phone 5s won’t be a revolution on words of theri company tehmselves i think it will be like sony xperia z u can say i phone 6 better
    and sgs4 is a great phone but if these information about honami is true it will be better farway from sgs4
    and yes it must be toooooo expensive
    look at z now itt’s still expensive wat about this!! :D

  • aj

    Sgs3 camera is awful bro….and xperia x10 camera was great :)

  • we all hope so
    but this year sony seems to work good on update
    2 updates for sony xperia v and and z till nw

  • need triluminos screen

  • it wont be TFT

    Sure, they’ll make it, only after releasing lower end phones and waiting abit until people buy those then release it :P

  • lolz

  • ShinOrochiX

    If the ‘Honami’ specs are true then that is absolutely amazing, most probably the best smartphone ever to have be made. Hopefully Sony can pair exquisite hardware with peerless software. ;-)

  • PRo

    And TSUNAMI then :P…. Lolz
    By the way I luv my Z !!!!

  • Golfakias

    haha :P
    me to i love me Z :D <3

  • Im most excited about the walkman chip, i got those mdr1 – rbt headphones and the xperia s soud just doest really match up to the headphones. So this sounds really good.

  • Ambroos

    If you don’t count the Note because of identical internals you shouldn’t count the Acro S, Ion, SL, V and TX either.

  • IwantHonami

    Oh Yeah!

  • Justin Williams

    They talk big but can they actually deliver such amazing specs and what will it be like for google updates, since rooting on Xperia phones are next to impossible because they lock the damn boot loader

  • Herman

    Holy hell!

    If this is true, I don’t need no PureView anymore!
    Cyber-shot with Carl Zeiss optics can’t be any worse than existing cameras.

  • Xlash Andraid

    How much this one will cost? $1500 US dollars?

    Yes, SONY is ma favourite brand, so superior to the rest… Including the price, that’s the only point when SONY should be inferior, for the sake of us, their fans.

  • Xlash Andraid

    iPhone 5S? what is it gonna feature? a 4.5 inches screen? ios maps 2? LOL

  • veneticat

    The xperia z was only supposed to rival the s3, so said Sony, but this is their real flagship for the year that will rival htc one and s4. And my good does this sound sexy, should wipe Samsung clear XD so happy… Definitely Sony picking it up.. Hopefully the updates will be better aswell, because they’re Sony phones unlike NXT series which are Sony Ericsson..

  • Fuad Jalil

    You haven’t owned an Xperia since X10 right? Or perhaps you’ve been getting them via a carrier (still unlockable). Sony actually has put up a page detailing the unlock procedure for its xperia lineup so please….

  • s<dgfh

    I really hope they make the Honami. Even if its gonna cost fortune… I’ve wanted to see a manufacturer really go all in and make a super phone

  • NikAek

    :O ,when you will ever notice the difference ??? ,only in your pocket ..well if its a habit to buy & try iam with you ,if not its a waste of money time

  • Se ele vinher pro Brasil, nem compro o zq. Vou aguentar fica com o meu antigo xperia neo até lá.

  • Dayum,I just fapped when I saw the Honami specs

  • Rayx

    well that escalated quickly.. bye bye xperia z

  • jag

    Going to sell my xperia Z if this Honami is true.. But i really love my Z.. Huhu

  • JG

    I wasn’t able to buy the XZ due to budget, but I’m definitely going to have to save for this “Honomi!” and I’m so excited about this!!!

  • xyqz

    honami? really? good bye my xperia z

  • zerocools

    Xperia Ion, carrier bootlocked by AT&T, took me less than a minute to root using Binary’s method. It’s not hard to root an Xperia device even if has a locked bootloader.

  • Bloody hell! They both sound great!

  • r34r5w

    agree. and that’s what i really hope is going to happen. they announced a device to rival the s3 and iphone 5 so i hope this time, they will offer a device that will rival the s4, htc one, and upcoming iphone.

    i just hope the display would be much much much much much better not for my sake but for sony’s sake. sony can’t attract new customers who have been accustomed to amoleds and better looking IPS displays from rival companies.

  • erest

    aren’t you supposed to be glad with that? we’ve seen the many weaknesses of the xperia z. it simply cannot stand up to the current flagships from competing companies.

    a successor is in order. besides, the xperia z was announced by sony’s marketing manager to be a competitor to the galaxy s3 and iphone 5. you should not wonder why they’ll be releasing new flagships for this year. these new devices will be the real 2013 flagships to match the s4 and htc one.

    let’s just hope it will come with better displays and cameras that perform better than the s4. i was really so impressed with the s4’s camera that i was almost depressed for days. how can sony be beaten when it comes to camera tech when it manufactures topnotch cameras.

  • efwse

    i don’t really think there’s an issue with that. it should even be good for you since that means the earlier flagships will have lower prices. it’s just a matter of choice. you only worry about that when you buy smartphones for the sake of showing off the latest model. having several choices is good. lower prices for the earlier models is even better.

  • “One Sony”…
    Then what’s the point of Z? a pre-One Sony? Doesn’t matter, i ain’t even mad. I’ll just stick to my Z till Honami price drop or till a newer model comes out just before Honami goes discontinue

  • Arokhantos

    Maybe they should stop releasing broken handsets tablets and fix bugs first before releasing new broken products.
    Just saying………
    Don’t get angry at me i’m just saying the truth, and most of you known i’m right.

  • Arokhantos

    Hope they fix their software issues bugs problems inside sony before they release this, i really would love to see sony kick samsung’s ass.

  • AllanT

    Every one wants:…..

    I want a good picture quality out of the camera and putting too many megapixels in a small sensor isn’t going to give you good pictures. It’s just people who don’t understand who keep talking about pixel numbers

  • pikapika

    when samsung wasn’t as big as it is now, it also produced several flagships (even more than what sony is offering) for multiple platforms. they even had the samsung wave line. you’re just nitpicking. there’s nothing wrong with offering more. you can criticize the xz display, camera, and battery but not the number of devices being released. that does not make sense. new models mean lower prices for older ones. what do you buy your smartphones for? to brag about having the latest model? that’s a stupid motivation for buying gadgets.

  • ererse

    appears to be a test device. they’re testing the waters. it appears the water resistant feature is well-received so they’re implementing it with the succeeding flagships.

  • Hamza Salau

    The z isn’t that expensive here I can get one for about $560 in the states compared to the price of the iPhone 5, Sgs4 HTC one and the rest its pretty cheap

  • Hamza Salau

    You realize that every LCD display has a thin film transistor right?
    Plus oled’s are over naturally and experience burn in after a while

  • miguel bessa

    and with carl zeiss lens

  • AKS

    you think Iphone is cheap? that bloody expensinve , and dont wanna get lost using the maps out of this world.. SONY is premium no matter what specs u add to samsung it will still be a piece of plastic..

  • aks


  • I’m a Xperia S user and I’m not going to buy Z as I said a lot in this blog. But I’m considering to buy Honami


  • Eu se fosse você esperaria a Sony lançar os novos. Acho o ZQ bem inferior ao Z (em termos de estética).

    Eu quase comprei o Z por meio de uma importadora, mas resolvi esperar já que a Sony lança uma caralhada de smarts por ano.

  • :lol:

  • kevin

    It hasn’t been announced as official and you already say u wanna buy it? That’s why it is a rumor so don’t get all ur hopes into it

    With the next Flagship, they should have a dedicated Camera button as a Capacitive Key, with probably a short press as Auto Focus and a long press to take a shot. This would probably help them waterproofing the Handset, and give us all a great device which has got everything in it.

  • arena

    xperia z also sounded great when it was rumored. look what has become of it now.

  • APai

    I doubt if they’d go the 4.5inch route (even in jest). they might go for a 4.2-4.3 inch route. but apple has already eaten the humble apple pie – they are more human now – ipad mini, 4 inch screen, google maps. i only wish other companies learned from their mistakes! sony needs to pick a clue from sony fans about software updates.

    But if all of those features are coming in a single package, a this “Honami”, and also if comes in white :) sorry I’m selling the Z.

    I really need to get back those feelings like old times with the SE K and W series with top notch Walkman and cyber-shot features.

    Are only rumors, but if this is true, is a perfect battery, perfect processor, perfect camera (xenon) perfect mp3 player (the internal amplifier) MINDBLOWING

  • Which 6 flagships were those???? Xperia S,Ion and Acro S & HD are different variants of the same phone. The T,TX and TL are the same phone for different markets! In that case Samsung would have had about 12 flagships last year!

  • Don’t worry Triluminos is coming and Sony’s own Oled

  • Z is a big seller and will be well supported! Stop panicking!

  • It’s a great phone! I love mine! Why???

  • arena

    it’s inferior compared to other flagships. i’m a sony fan but i have to admit the xperia z display is inferior to the s4 and htc one. even the oppo find 5 has a better display. likewise, the touted exmor rs camera is also inferior to the s4. i don’t want sony to be inferior to samsung when it comes to displays and cameras. sony is supposed to be the best in these departments.

    you can check for sample photos online. there are a multitude of them. i made sure to check every possible sample available on the web to properly conclude that i can no longer defend the xperia z and express to sony that they need to come up with something new to beat the competition.

    still a sony fan, though. my hopes for sony were lifted with the honami rumor.

  • roeshak

    If they want to release a flagship to rival the htc one and s4, they should release the phone around the same time i.e. H1.
    There’s no point releasing the phone months later when everyone is looking forward to 2014. The 6.4 inch device is good for H2 but the other sounds too much for 2013.
    Sounds more like a H1 2014 flagship.

  • It’s not a question of getting 4.2.2 ; but any earlier update!

    1. Buggy Walkman – No doubt Walkman™ is one, if not the best music player I’ve seen, but buggy software puts me off sometimes. Take for example the playlist, the order of the tracks keep changing, and I’m also not able to play the track on another Xperia device. Oh, and clearaudio+ randomly turns off.
    2. NFC – Sure it’s a great feature, but only works with two Xperia Z’s. I’m not able to transfer photos to my friends Sola(or any other device Sony or otherwise) using NFC.
    3. Contacs – I update a contact; and call the person later. It displays the old name and contact picture when calling,
    4. Lockscreen can still be bypassed!
    And many other small annoyances like icons in a folder rearranging themselves :/

    Completely agree with you. So many people that just so obsessed with numbers and the need to have a device which has more GHz, more cores, more mpx, more ppi than the devices their friends have. These people dont understand that this is just a marketing trick and there is no difference with ppi large than 300, there is no use for big GHz in a phone other than additional battery drain and that the large number of mpx on a small phone camera sensor will actually make pictures worse.

    “One Sony” is definitely the right idea. Don’t split features and technologies between multiple phones, release one superphone with all the features in it.

    Splitting features among multiple handsets is what killed Nokia and combining them all in one is what made Apple and Samsung awesome.

About screen ppi, yes 300 is already good. 720p is good for 4″~4.8″ displays. 1080p is for 5″ and above. 1080p is a huge difference to 720p, but in small mobile displays, there’s almost no difference to quality, but there is a HUGE difference to gaming performance because 1080p is a sh*t ton of pixels to process by the GPU.

    Glad they didn’t choose the octo-core stuff following Samsung non sense biggest dick competition!

    Hopefully they’re done with the “Crystal LED” they talked about last year and use it on this one… TFT is getting ancient… Although gotta admit, they were able to use TFT against modern times’ OLED — Bravia…

  • Dead Darren

    Maybe Sony should bring out the “Crystal LED” display they talked about last year on this phone… Don’t tell me it’s too advanced that Sony wants to play fair in catching up and use it in the right time… Hahaha! :D

  • Klm

    Sony, i love you
    You make. I belive.

  • philippe

    I have read the original conversation of somebody with that tester. He claimed that Honami is so good thhat he somehow regret to buy the xperia z so early. and he also comment that compare to Honami, iphone 5 is simply a rubbish. he also said that as the camera was not on the phone yet, so he couldnt test the camera.

  • Sony you idiots.You all missed, but Nokia, has always paid special attention to the cameras, unlike you! (And it will always be a leader, and you’ll always catch up with her.

    what is even the point of posting this picture over and over again oh my god its not even mildly entertaining anymore.

    They should make smaller screens too. We’re not all monkeys, hello! Big foot or something. Some people have normal hands. Could you, can you? And do something with that noisy and whitey camera or roll-back to the old k series. The pictures have no contrast at all.

    i think they should recycle old handsets from the users to buy new ones

  • Ashua

    No it Won’t and plus how many nokia phones have actually been selling compared to sony phones this year and how many pureview handsets has actually sold, until you have facts don’t say its to late for Sony because it is not, for Nokia certainly yes at this rate if they don’t come to android soon and continue to stick with Windows phones, They will continue to plummet Into the abyss!

  • Ashua

    I am glad they are focusing on the camera and new software for the camera and a walkman amplifier chip and snapdragon 800 clocked at 2.3 GHZ compared to samsung’s octa core which is clocked at 1.9 GHZ even with 8 cores the S4 is slower than the Honami which will completely blow out of the water, especially considering its going to be waterproof and dust resistance as well thats icing on the cake! :)

  • For the person who want really good or the best camera, it is still what operating system . Android is not perfect, for example windows at least more interesting, and I do not think nokia must necessarily move to android. Lumia 920 sales is very good, so that the windows phone future certainly is. Personally, I have nokia 808 which works on simbian, but so what? Main thing that I have my best camera on smartphone and i dont see competitors . And the future Honami will not competitor for 808 Pureiew.

  • Ashua

    How exactly is windows phone better then Android? windows doesn’t have much apps on offer compared to iso and android, no HD screen quality, and on to of that even Micro$oft makes more money out of Android than even their own Windows phone, even out of google, comes to show windows is dead just a third wheel, but that is going to be gone by time ubuntu, Tizen and firefox phones come out later this year.

  • wp8 is more convenient for user. The interface is very user-friendly and intuitive and smooth works. Any smartphone on Windows Phone 8 is faster than a smart phone with similar features to Android 4. On WP8 no concept “virus” and “malicious application”. And never will be. Android with each update becomes very heavy OS Windows Phone only drawback is the lack of applications, but over time there will be more applications. So that wp is the future! I’ll even tell you that many of my friends want buy devices running on windows!

  • Ashua

    Windows phones, when it comes to updates a official overhaul, they abandon the devices, and replace them with new phones and only do maintenance updates on it, and windows only has 2 home screen, compared to Android which has 7 and you can even make more, and Android has quad core, while windows has only dual core which makes it very behind in terms of hardware on their flagship, which makes them In turn be competing against mid-range phones and again if Windows was really so successful, how come Micro$oft makes more money from Android then it does from windows phones, end of story its a two horse race not three, between Android and Apple.

  • And for what to you 7 home screens? What advantage of it and for whom it is necessary, it`s more similar to a mess. I wrote to you that Windows uses less energy, for normal work windows needs only 2 core
    , only two, and your gluttonous android, even with 4 core works not so ideal as you want. Not the quantity of cores plays a role! Quality and energy saving of an operating system, and here Windows leader. I consider Windows is focused on serious people more, android more is suitable for gamers

  • Ashua

    Nope, because on Android you can do multi tasking and gaming, and can you please answer the question, if Windows phone is so great, how come Micro$oft makes more money from Android then it does selling its own windows phones.? and if you mean serious people what about android, iphones and blackberry been given the approval to be used in the pentagon where the president and other top political individuals have meetings.? Yet windows has never been used at the pentagon ever so there’s my answer to your question, now answer my one! :)

  • Answer: The policy of double standards! For example: Microsoft receives $ 5 from every smartphone production HTC. Earn money. Regarding the Pentagon. First, the Office for the Protection of Information Systems Department of Defense is considering using as the main devices of iPhone smart phones and tablets iPad. However, after the test, the Agency stated that the Apple remote control gadgets on the platform iOS, so employees at Apple, it is possible to track the movement of their devices with embedded chips GPS. That’s why the Pentagon chose android platform! Android, decided to military experts, is open source, which allows easy use of custom configuration. Because of this Pentagon employees responsible for information security, can implement their own security policies and remotely monitor changes to the settings.)) But I do not pentagon)) for example, more people are acquiring a smartphone platform vindous 8. The only thing that is missing now on WP8, applications and cool games, but it will eventually. And the rest, the platform is very nice and pleasant, so my friend, in this operating system has a future! But I am at the beginning, not talking about the operating system, I’m talking about cameraphones . And Sony has no chance to overtake nokia Pureview, because Sony cant make revolution, but Nokia can, and she has proved it !

  • Procurement ReadyMix

    Best thing in SONY is you are getting what you are paying for.
    best electronic company in the world.

  • Ashua

    Actually Sony does have a chance, reason why is because they have a camera department, and are best known and one of the most recommended brands by photographers and people in the film industry compared to Nokia which has no chance its only camera phones, with the combination of its camera department and technologies into their phones, nokia will be crushed and silenced by the honami and way better then the pureview which hasn’t sold much,so really sony has already beaten nokia in everything! :)

  • What? )) Sony has already beaten nokia in everything! :) In everything..? Oh Very funny, especially after this: nokia will be crushed and silenced by the honami ) Almost fell off my chair for laughing so hard!))))

    Yup, Sony has the xperia Z has done really well, sold a lot more then nokia, in the worlds top 10 smartphone vendors and sales and yet nokia is nowhere in site of been in the top 10, and on top of that, nokia is doomed, Sony is begin to rise, with many more things to come, where as for nokia it is to late, your comments alone has made me cry tears of laughter and amusement, thanks for the entertainment! :) and how about you get off here and go to a nokia blog rather then be on xperia blog or any sony blog! :)

  • Pingback: Sony Xperia S black, 1257-2734 | Cellulari Smartphone()

  • You’re funny))) Thanks for the tip, but unfortunately, this is not your personal blog. Dont worry about nokia, it will be number one again, like in the good old days. Your Sony has never been a leader)) But why you are so latched on Sony xperia Z? Lumia 920 is the leader of smart phones based on Windows 8 On android phones Xperia Z better HTC One and Galaxy?

  • Ashua

    Nokia 920 is nothing when its compared to android and Sony has been a leader in many fields such as tvs, video games, music, cameras and films, so really sony is coming back with a bang as for nokia, they are to late into the world of smartphones and don’t really have anything interesting to offer, sony many things, cameras, music, films, games and many more so really sony is rising now especially once this phone and many more future phones come out, as for nokia, game over unless they come to android before its to late! :) and again thank you for the entertainment, keep up the good work! :)

  • Stephen Raharja

    I bought Xperia Z right after it was released…. And now this??

    Come one Sony, how many awesome phones must you release within this short time?
    Now I can’t stop thinking about this awesome phone :drool:

  • A beautiful speech!)) Agree, Sony is a great company, especially 30 years ago. But Sony is not dominant smartphone company! There are other leaders!) And I really hope that Sony finally release, the best smartphones with the best cameras..) Nice talking to you! Good luck=)

  • andrew

    I hope take a more common sense approach to the use of glass on the back of my preferred model, the Togari. Very large smartphones need traction in the hand. Period.
    The specs of this device are mindblowing. For me suddenly my desktop is obsolete and thoughts of buying Sony’s Xperia Z tablet are gone.
    Samsung will be hard pressed to better both the sound & the camera tech in the Togari, but you never know.

  • SadDonkey

    Mann… How are they gonna top honami’s feature with 2014 1H Flagship? my plan dosn’t end till then.. =(

  • Hakan Mutlu

    COMPLETELY agree with you. I was hoping that I’ll be happy with my Z at least for a year and now this Honami came up. :(

  • Italino

    The most kick-ass specifications so far!!!!!!!!!!
    But i hope this superphone “Xperia Honami” will come with a very thin bezel. (similar to Xperia ZL)

    All sony devices have poor sound quality. No midrange and subwoofers. Look, if u play mp3 files on samsung devices it even vibrates and very excellent sound quality. If u ask me about sony devices? No comment. I would recommend Sony to sell tomato in the market. Surely they prosper.
