Sony Xperia Z1 May be the i1/Honami's Real Name

By Gary Cutlack on at

The phone that's leaked more times than my dad's shed roof has a new name, with sources claiming Sony's next flagship smartphone may arrive known as the Xperia Z1.

The rumoured name change comes via the XDA forum, with a previously reliable poster claiming the Xperia Z1 name supersedes the previous i1 and Honami titles the phone was known under. Whatever it ends up being called, it's virtually guaranteed that Sony will be announcing a new, big telephone of some sort at this year's IFA tech event on September 4th.

Meanwhile, new press images discovered by ePrice show black, white and purple models are in the pipeline. [XDA via Techradar]
