Today, more images leaked of the upcoming Sony Honami, a 20-megapixel smartphone that could challenge Nokia's Lumia 1020. In the image, Sony's Xperia Z was placed side-by-side for comparison. The leak comes from website GadgetHelpline, and the device is said to have a 20-megapixel Cybershot imaging sensor in the back.


The Honami appears to share the same design cues as the Xperia Z but features a larger and thicker frame to accommodate the larger screen and extra imaging hardware. Rumored specs for the device include a Snapdragon 800 processor from Qualcomm, 2GB of RAM, and a 5-inch 1080p Triluminos Opticontrast display. Water and dust protection are also said to be present and a 3000mAh battery should keep things powered up for many hours. Sony is said to have chosen Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean as the operating system of choice. No word has yet leaked on a possible release date, but stay tuned to TweakTown for all the updates on this new phone from Sony.
