Sony Xperia i1 teased again in new leaked pics

The 20-megapixel camera touting Sony Xperia i1 has leaked online again with a new set of pictures showing its thin body.

Sony’s rumoured Xperia i1 smartphone complete with 20-megapixel rear-facing camera has emerged online again, supporting rumours that the handset will launch at the Berlin-based IFA conference in early September.

The new pictures show a black iteration of the device, compared to the white version in the previous Sony Xperia i1 picture leaks. This one also seems to have a textured backplate surrounded by an aluminium frame.

Previously referred to as codename Honami, the Sony Xperia i1 strongly resembles the existing Sony Xperia Z, Xperia Tablet Z and Xperia Z Ultra in design, packing the same thin form factor.

Sony Xperia i1 rumours
Rumoured for a September IFA launch, the Sony Xperia i1 should pack a 5.3- or 5.4-inch Full 1080p HD display with a 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor and 2GB of RAM.

Powered by a non-removable battery somewhere between the 2,700mAh and 3,000mAh mark, the smartphone’s crowning glory will be its rear-facing camera.

The Sony Xperia i1 is rumoured to have a 20-megapixel Sony 1/1.6 Exmor RS stacked sensor paired with a Cybershot G lens, Xenon or super bright LED Flash.

It will be looking to compete with the rumoured Nokia Lumia 1020 with 41-megapixel camera tipped to launch at a New York Nokia event on July 11, as well as the recently unveiled Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom.

The Galaxy S4 Zoom has a 16-megapixel image sensor, benefitting from 10x optical zoom, integrated Xenon flash and an ISO range of 100 – 3200.

Yet to be formally launched, the Nokia Lumia 1020 should have a 41-megapixel Carl Zweiss image sensor, optical image stabilisation and a variable aperture.
