Just yesterday we shared leaked photos of the upcoming but unannounced Sony Xperia Z1, otherwise known as the Honami. The folks at XperiaBlog shared a collection of official rendered press photos, and now they've got their hands on a full press release and specs ahead of tomorrow's planned unveil at IFA. Altogether, it's nine pages of material reminding us that Sony's successor to last year's Xperia Z flagship should be quite the impressive piece of tech.
Sony just can't keep a lid on these QX lens camera things. After a ton of images showed up yesterday, we've now got all the specs and pricing. There's even a lovely little video that tells the tale of hipster love.
The new Cyber-Shot QX100 and QX10 lens cameras will be announced on September 4th at 4PM London time. The QX100 will go for $500, and the QX10 will cost $250, which is spot on with the leaks.
Say whatever you like about Sony, but it's hard to deny that their high-end phones look great. Case in point: the unannounced Honami, which is almost certainly the successor to last year's Xperia Z flagship. The folks at XperiaBlog got their hands on a collection of official rendered press photos, and this thing looks fantastic.
The Honami was previously reported as having the retail title of "Xperia i1," but now it's going by "Xperia Z1." Whether this is a mix-up form a previous leak or a different model for a different region is still up in the air.
A few weeks ago, we caught a glimpse of a new camera attachment from Sony that appears to put an entire camera on the back of your mobile device, in addition to the existing camera. I have to admit – it's kind of a neat concept, if properly executed. Today, a few new images – as well as some details about how the lenses will work – have surfaced over at Sony Alpha Rumors.
Xperia Tablet Z WiFi owners, the time has come for you to make the jump to Android 4.2.2. The latest firmware update, version 10.3.1.C.0.136, updates the six-month tablet to the next version of Jelly Bean and brings with it a slew of features worth salivating over, such as support for 64GB SD cards, and some that may be more subjective, such as the transition from a tablet UI to a phone UI.
Sony has announced that a previously promised maintenance update for the Xperia S, Xperia SL, and Xperia Acro S is hitting the internet tubes now. These devices received an Android 4.1 update a while back, but now the OEM is tying up some loose ends with a new Jelly Bean build. It should reach all users soon.
