Rumoured Sony Teaser Image Suggests September Reveal of "Honami" or Xperia i1

By Gary Cutlack on at

Mobile phone leaks are now so thorough and comprehensive we already feel rather well acquainted with Sony's unannounced next phone. We've already seen photos of the phone, the camera app, mock-ups and plenty of rumoured specs of the Xperia i1 or "Honami" Sony model, so a teaser image is a bit redundant. But there it is.

Still, there might be some people out there who don't spend every minute of their day studying tech web sites, and this is for them. It confirms that Sony is planning to announce something at this year's IFA tech show in Berlin, and given that this teaser image looks vaguely like the leaked Xperia i1 images, it's probably that. It's thin enough. And phone-shaped enough...

...and has all the right holes. Get your pretending-to-be-surprised faces ready for a September 4th reveal of Sony's next big thin thing. [Digi-Wo and Xperia Blog via Techradar]
