Sony Honami Mini Rumored To Pack Flagship Worthy Specs

by Vlad Andrici on August 18, 2013


Coming up with a “Mini” version of the current flagship seems to be the latest and “hottest” (debatable) trend in the mobile world. Unfortunately, both the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini and the HTC One Mini cannot hold a candle to their full-fledged versions. However, according to the latest rumor, the Sony Honami Mini could be the one to change this way of thinking.

Ideally, a Mini version of a flagship should come with comparable specs and features, packed in a smaller body in order to give an alternative to those who prefer a smaller and easier to handle device. In reality this hasn’t happened yet, as those keen on getting a smaller smartphone had to settle for not quite top-of-the-line specs. Well, this might change once the Sony Honami Mini will hit the market. Interested in finding out more? Join us after the break.

Sony Honami Mini To Feature “Flagship”-like Specs?

According to “RandomUser” over at the Esato.com forums, the Sony Honami Mini (codenamed Ray 3) will pack a 2.2 GHz Snapdragon 800, a 4.3 inch 720p TRILUMINOS display, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a micro SD slot and a 2400 mAh battery. If you were worried that the Mini version of the Sony i1 Honami would come with a “not so awesome” camera, according to this new rumor there is nothing to worry about as a 20.7 MP rear facing camera with a 1/2.3″ sensor, f2.0 aperture size and a Sony G Lens should be on board.


The only differences between the above specs and the full-fledged Honami are the screen size and resolution (4.3 vs 5 inches, 720p vs 1080p) and the battery’s capacity (2400 mAh vs 3050 mAh). Now the question is: can we really trust what the source says? Well, considering that he has a pretty accurate track record we would say that it’s definitely a possibility for these rumored Honami Mini specs to be real. Just don’t bet any money on it … yet.

Would you like to get your hands on a Sony Honami Mini if the above specs turn out to be real? Could this be a game changer as far as “Mini” devices are concerned? Let us know what you think, in the comments section.

    This is exactly what I have been waiting for – I assume it will be waterproof as well. It also needs to have a removable sim card and removable battery. I have a Galaxy S 1 that I am waiting to replace and the Samsung mins don’t do it for me.
