We all know that the race for the smart ‘cameraphone‘ has already begun with Samsung launching the Galaxy S4 Zoom with 16x optical zoom and Nokia launching the Lumia 1020 with a 41 megapixel sensor coupled with OIS, loseless zoom and more. And to heat up the race, Sony is all set to launch its upcoming Sony Honami smartphone which was rumoured to pack in a 20 megapixel camera.


And today a range of images of the smartphone has appeared online which goes on to confirm that the Sony Honami will carry a 20.7 megapixel primary camera on the back and take images of resolution 5248 x 3936 pixels in 4:3 aspect ratio. Users of the smartphone will also be able to take images at 8 megapixel with either 4:3 ratio or 16:9 ratio, at 3-megapixel, and at 2-megapixel resolutions too. There will also be an LED flash, 1/2.3-inch sensor with Sony’s very own G-Lens is employed on the Honami, which is usually seen on Sony’s point-and-shoot digital cameras.


The screen size is pegged at 5 inch diagonally and it is seen being compared to the Apple iPhone 5 which has a 4 inch display. The screen resolution is expected to remain at 1920 x 1080 pixels (full HD) and the phone is expected to be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor coupled with 2 GB of RAM. A 3000 mAh battery will power the Honami and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean is expected to run out-of-the-box. The Sony Honami will also be able to capture videos in 4K resolution.


The design of the Sony Honami is similar to all the latest Xperia smartphones like the Xperia Z, Z Ultra and the likes and it would be no surprise if the smartphone is water proof and dust resistant.
