Xperia Z1 ‘Honami’ to launch on Three UK on 24 September?

by XB on 30/08/2013

in Rumours, Xperia Z1


Xperia Z1 Three 24 SeptemberEngadget has received a leaked image of what is believed to be an inventory pic from UK carrier, Three, showing release dates of upcoming phones. Interestingly, it shows that the ‘Sony Xperia Z1’ will land on 24 September, also mentioning that the handset will not be announced until 4 September.

We have longed for Sony to shorten the time lines between announcement and release and given that we already have the handset firmware certified on PTCRB, we were already speculating that there was a good chance of the handset launching very soon after IFA. The leaked image also seems to suggest that the C690X ‘Honami’ will have the Xperia Z1 marketing name.

    USA when?

  • Vitali

    why Z ultra and Tablet Z are in the Samsung place?…

  • ziomus

    Why the white one cannot be white in the front? I don’t get it… SONY can you deliver full white honami??? And please do not call it stupid z1… It is already second z…

  • zyzzyva

    Impressive, before Lumia 1020 but still slower than Galaxy Note 3

  • Carljn

    The bezels shouldn’t be white as it distracts from the content on the screen.

  • PsFreedom

    I haven’t seen even ZU yet. T-T

    Enough water resistant phones

    I guess I can get my cousin to pick up the Z Ultra on the 9th for me. I live in Canada and I don’t want a locked, carrier branded phone. That, and the phone hasn’t been announced for North America. Still, even if they did, it would likely be locked to a carrier in the USofA and a carrier in Canada. I might pick up the Honami too, or Z1, or whatever you call it. I like the name ‘Honami’.

    And Sony should really tone it down with the naming. It’s total crap and makes no sense.
    M, M dual, C, Z Ultra, ZR, ZL, Z, L, SP, SL, S, Acro S, E, E dual, V, J, T, TX, neo L.
    I have 3 letters for all of that…
    WTF.

    SLOWER ??

    Hmmm, any fool with a phone could have taken this pic and called it a “leak.” In a few days we’ll all know exactly what it will be, so I’ll sit back and wait that few days. :)

  • jag

    Woah! That would be great if its true!

  • qubo

    white thick bezels look ugly. just look at galaxy s3. that’s one of the ugliest flagships ever. the black front makes the display look bigger, edge to edge.

    Look at apple, lg, huawei, and Samsung, they all have full white bezels and they look fine.

    That’s the lamest excuse I’ve ever heard.

    You guys are just like Apple fans, trying hard to justify why you don’t need a feature just to make yourselves feel better about not getting it.

  • josesl16

    It’s more of personal preference. If it was possible to offer both back-only white and full-white, both will probably sell, I think.

  • Billy de Fretes

    wow,, i hope sony change honami names into something else.

  • Babylonbwoy

    wonder if it’s a true roadmap (devices listed in sammy is the kind of ish that can happens in carrier doc)? 24 sept would be awesome!

  • Brian Byron De Guzman

    but it is the Sony Xperia Z1 not just Z1

  • zyzzyva

    I mean the release schedule, if this rumor is true.

  • raxxta

    Starting to like Samsung all of a sudden!!

  • spade

    Agreed :/

  • sony1

    SONAMI :)

    I have the xperia zl its a fantastic phone i installed most of the apps including the honami launcher on the zl everything works very smooth but i now as soon as sony relaese the honamy i will buy it becourse is the most intresting phone this phone is a winner for sony

  • Carljn

    In this case, no. I bought a black frame for my silver Macbook Air because I felt the bezel was distracting. I might get the white Honami, but if the bezel would also be white I’d get the black one. White bezels may look good in the store, but you’ll soon tire.
