Sony Honami May Be Equipped With 20Mp Rear-facing Camera
We have heard quite a few times that Sony is working on a photography-oriented smartphone called Honami. Now, it is mentioned that the phone will boast a superb sensor, capable of delivering a maximum resolution of 20Mp. Unlike the previous leak, the Honami may not use its popular CyberShot sensor, but instead Exmor RS one.
At 1/1.6 inch, the sensor used by Honami is placed between the Nokia 808 PureView at 1/1.2 inch and Nokia N8 at 1/1.83 inch. Theoretically, these sensor sizes are better than many point-and-shoot digital cameras in the market. Larger sensor can capture more light, ensuring better low-light performance. With appropriate lenses, larger sensors may also deliver better subject isolation. There’s a rumor that the Honami will use Carl Zeiss lens, but the use of CyberShot G lens is still a possibility.
Sony is obviously no stranger to consumer photography products. When it was still partnering with Ericsson, there were some great Sony Ericsson phones offering superb cameras, including one of earliest models with Xenon flash.
