Honami videoFollowing a series of three teaser images for the upcoming Sony C690X,  codenamed Honami,  Sony has now released the first teaser video for the handset.

We get a great look at the frame from all angles and it shows the handset being submerged in water. It certainly whets the appetite for the full reveal on 4 September. Check out the video below.

Thanks Colby and Sami!

    Good vids, good teasing, hope the ads campaign will be better than last one!

  • JEp ?

    This is very awesome!

  • Clarence Alvarado

    What we leave us drooling is its final name. The name which will be known for as Sony Xperia.

  • Babylonbwoy

    Money is ready just tell me when and where !

  • getting pretty excited with this one :D

  • CLB

    I’ve got a white Xperia ZL, which looks amazing, but these teaser makes the Honami looking very very good! Unfortunately it’s getting bigger and bigger. Here a comparison picture between the Xperia Z Ultra, Honami, Xperia Z and Xperia ZL which I’ve shopped: Ofcourse I want to know the final specifications of the Honami, but hopefully there will be a high-end mini-version as well!

  • zzsetozz

    the name is almost known, Z one,
    check Sonymobile news section under the title “3…2….what comes next?”

  • Andrie Putra

    I think i have buy the mini version next year … please sony dont same price as xperia Z/ Z Ultra for first time… :'(

  • ddff

    Hahahah! Rich kid!

  • jag

    i just pre-ordered Z ultra. ;'[
    but anyways, glad that alot of people are now turning their heads to sony mobile.

  • Kjetil B. Thomassen

    “The best of Sony is about to get even better”, but will it have ANT+?

  • XperiaFan

    beautifull this teaser :)

  • Bill Lockhart

    Lol! Share your money, bitch! :D

  • zl user

    ZL has the best/perfect dimensions, I’m so proud!

  • N8

    The curved sides kinda reminds me of my old Nokia N8 lol

  • Naail Zahid

    And yet Sony has given us no confirmation if they will fix the compression issue with the camera. Horribly noisy pics, despite all the light available, oddly also in day time.
    This issue plagues the Z, ZL, ZR and Z ultra and I have no doubt the same issue will affect Z1 (or whatever the honami will end up being called) when it is launched. Why no one is complaining about this major issue is beyond my comprehension…

  • Ha Ha

    LOL! I’m not sure about “Perfect Dimensions”. But it sure is one of thinest bezel devices out there.

  • Silas Arentsen

    3…2….what comes next?
    So this means Sony Xperia Z1? (This text is from here:

  • m sacha

    because this particular page you complaining on is about an upcoming sony phone, so maybe, just maybe, your complaining in the wrong place???

  • Naail Zahid

    Actually if you read my comment, I am talking about the Honami/Z1/Zone or whatever…go back and see some “samples” xperia blog uploaded on one of their posts. They show the same horrible noise issue that is affecting all the Zs.
    And I am complaining here because it seems that a lot of users on Xperiablog keep calling the Z the “best camera phone” when in fact it’s become one of the worst due to this issue. The phone is amazing, don’t get me wrong, I love my Z, and my brother’s ZL, but this camera issue is really annoying. Go check out any of the sample pics for any of the Z family of phones if you don’t believe me about the noise issue.

  • m sacha

    i agree about the camera on the z and zl, but the z1 or whatever its going to be called, hasnt been announced yet, the leaked photos may or may not be correct, so no point getting upset yet for the z1 when noone knows what the quality will be like, but to be honest, not expecting much anyway

  • Dexter Moregan

    Wait for Honami. Sorry for ZR.

  • Naail Zahid

    True, although I wish more users would complain to Sony rather than praise them for the camera software…If more people would complain, maybe sony would fix this issue. Enough people complained about battery life and wifi issues that Sony introduced a firmware patch, I wish Sony would do the same for the camera :(

    Let’s see what results the Z1 will give us…

  • Sony Xperia Z Series

  • fried_egg

    hello next phone! just need the S update to bide me over until this thing is released.

  • Amir

    women says “wow, it’s so big! can i play with yours?” i answer, “yes, you can play all day with my honami.”

  • Aspire5550

    I literally lmao!! :D

  • Aspire5550

    I think nobody is praising them for the honami’s camera yet.

    We are all keeping our hopes high for something good to come out from honami.

    I think its stupid to complain about something which isn’t even released/announced yet.

    But I do agree on the noise issue on all the xperia smart phones, It needs to be fixed. Fingers crossed that it is fixed on honami with the new algorithm and things that are coming along with it.

  • adecvat

    Real size.

  • surethom

    Looks nice, lets hope there is also a 4.3″ – 4.5″ mini version releases at the same time.

  • Battal Aljadei

    When it come to software ?
    sony is sucks !

  • Babylonbwoy

    Wonder if it is “3…2… what comes next?” 1, meaning Z1 maybe…

  • Gaetano

    Same time & same specs!


    am i imagining this wonderful dream or does the honami have the SAME thickness on bezels as the z?

    suddenly i want it badly

    sony knows how to create good teaser video .. i hope honami can surpass my expectation regarding image quality ..

  • Sebabo

    Keep your drug money … seriously where do you store your money – underwear?

  • ChallangetobeAccepted

    It’s always the same:
    First photos of a new device appear: “Relax, it’s just a prototype. The release device will be much better!”

    First software leaks appear: “Relax, it’s still pre-release software. The final one will be much better!”

    Device get’s announced: “Relax, they will iron out the flaws in the first update. Then it will be much better!”

    There is no point in waiting and hoping. Don’t like Sony cameras? Get a different brand. Don’t like like Samsung’s plastic? Get a different brand.

  • Jesús López Sotelo

    Hmm… Xperia Z1… Z One… ZOne… Xperia Zone!
    Heck yeah I’m in the Xperia Zone!


  • marlowe

    It’s just bothering me if xperia honami will be name z1 then if we will count for next z which is z2 and so on then xperia z would be out of place because definitely people would think that honami is the first xperia z and not xperia z just like samsung and iphone, sgalaxy s sgalaxy s2, s galaxy s3, sgalaxys4

  • Babylonbwoy

    stored in pocket, legit and hard earned.

  • Colby Leong

    I’ve grown accustomed to my Xperia Z, and it’s size, but a phone with the dimensions as the Z, with the rounded edges of the ZU and Z1, that would be sweet

  • Kevin

    Well 1st no one should complain here since this isnt a Sony official page this is a blog about xperia.

  • Kevin

    They can’t do anything in this page if you complain since Sony doesn’t own this page.

  • Naail Zahid

    Hi Kevin, maybe you should realise that by promoting a complaint on Xperia blog, perhaps the xperia blog staff will take notice, and if they make an article out of the complaint, Users will start to spam Sony on their FB pages, or their mobile blogs. Sony needs to be aware that this issue is more widespread than they think. I’ve already contacted Sony mobile about this issue but they are taking it lightly as im the only one complaining!

  • JG

    It really has a big speaker!!! I like it! Just waiting for it to come out!

  • JG

    This is nice!
