Rumor Roundup – Sony Xperia Togari And Honami – The Tale of an Oversized Phone And a Killer Camera

You have been warned. Most of the information in this article comes from people who feel proud to be called Sony Fanboys.  No offence to them by the way. Some of them are close to sources inside Sony and come up with snippets of information about upcoming devices once in a while. I have been following them for quite some time now. They were pretty much accurate about Xperia Z (except for best in class screen and camera!) Still you are requested to take these rumors with a pinch of salt.

Togari/Xperia Z Ultra/Xperia C

I  don’t have to explain why I call this phone over-sized. Pictures are self explanatory

togari (1)


Xperia Togari next to two tiny phones – Note 2 (5.5″) and Xperia Z (5″)

Moving to the specs we have

  • a 6.44 (or 6.2) inch 1080p display -340~350ppi
  • Snapdragon 800 SoC
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 16/32GB internal memory
  • Water and Dust proof
  • Magnesium alloy frame

Apart from this, the Z ultra is also supposed to have the capability to use a pencil as stylus!

This XXXL sized phone is expected to be announced later today along with Sony Smart Watch. Possibly the first “real” Snapdragon 800 device to be announced (ZTE announced a fake Snapdragon 800 phone at MWC 2013 :p)


The “Honami”


Honami concept based of rumors by Esato forum member Razec


  • 5″ 1080p Triluminos Display with X-Reality, 2000:1 Contrast Ratio
  • Snapdragon 800 (MSM8974) 2 GHz quad core processor with Adreno 330 GPU
  • 2GB RAM
  • 20MP 2/3″ ExmorRS sensor, f/2.0 Sony G lens, BIONZ image processing chip, Interchangeable lens accessories (you were warned before!)
  • Single LED flash (lol)
  • IP58 certification – Dust and water resistant
  • Carbon fibre/metallic body

The camera on this device (if rumors are true) should be a tough competition for upcoming Lumia EOS
