A Sony Xperia Honami cera photo sample has been caught in the wild, revealing more about the camera sensor fitted on the back of the smartphone.
The EXIF data of the leaked Xperia Honami photo sampe revealed a resolution of 3936 x 5248 pixels which is confirming the rumors talking about a 20 megapixel shutter.

Moreover, the Sony Xperia Honami will be underppined by a high-end hardware platform, according to the rumors.
Anyway it’s not clear yet whether the Xperia Honami will have an 8 megapixel front-facing camera like the early rumors suggested, but we are sure that we will be able to see the new terminal in flesh on September 4, during a press event held at IFA Berlin 2013 tech fair.
According to the rumor mill, the Sony Xperia Honami will pack a 5-inch full HD Triluminuous display with X-reality engine, while being powered by Qualcomm’s mighty Snapdragon 800 chipset based on a quad-core 2.2 Krait 400 CPU and Adreno 330 GPU.
