As we get ever closer to the launch of the Sony C690X ‘Honami’, one of the few details that is yet to leak is the name. We’ve never truly understood Sony’s naming scheme, but what has been a pattern in 2013 is the use of the letter ‘Z’ in its more premium offerings.
We obviously have the Xperia Z and Xperia ZL flagships that started it all, since then Sony has added the 4.6-inch Xperia ZR and 6.4-inch Xperia Z Ultra. Therefore, it is probably no surprise to see that the upcoming Honami will have the letter ‘Z’ somewhere in its official marketing name.
DooMLoRD from xda-developers seems to agree, tweeting that the “Xperia Honami might be called Z1 (Z One)“. DooMLoRD has leaked official ROMs for Xperia smartphones in the past, so there is every chance that this may be based on credible information. Either way, what do you think of the name? Is it an apt name for Sony’s next hero Xperia smartphone? Let us know in the comments below.
Heard an interesting rumor… Xperia Honami might be called Z1 (Z One) :-)
