Images surfaced today of Sony's upcoming Xperia i1, the company's next-gen flagship Android smartphone that is said to feature a 20-megapixel rear camera. The images surfaced on Chinese website Sina Weibo and were introduced to the Western world by website Gadget Helpline. The images depict a very Xperia-like device that is quite flat with very minute rounded corners. The supposed 20-megapixel camera can be seen in the top left-hand corner on the rear of the camera with what appears to be a fairly large lens as far as smartphones are concerned.

The phone is said to feature a five-inch full HD 1080p display and a 2.2 GHz quad-core QUALCOMM Snapdragon 800 processor alongside 2GB of RAM. The imaging sensor is said to be Sony's 1/2.3-inch ExmorRS which could produce images that sort of rival Nokia's Lumia 1020. Additionally, the phone will have a 3000mAh battery as well as 16GB of internal storage which can be augmented by a standard microSD card. The Xperia i1 is expected to be announced on September 4 at the IFA trade show in Berlin, Germany
