Sony Xperia Z1 video sneak peek – due to launch September 4th

Fancy a sneaky peek at the next Sony flagship smartphone? Well the company has just posted this video showing the phone which is rumoured to be called the Xperia Z1 and has been referred to in the past as the Sony Honami.

The video majors on its camera which would seem to confirm that the mobile will boast a very high-end snapper – the rumour is it will be 20 mega pixels. In typical Xperia style it is waterproof too hence the slo mo drenching.

The rumours are that the Xperia Z1 will feature a 5-inch 1080p display, boast a Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor, backed by 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, plus 4G LTE, NFC and a 3,000mAh battery are also on board

The video says that the mobile will be unveiled on September 4th- the same day as Samsung’s big smartwatch and Galaxy Note 3 announcements.

Sony also has a habit of pulling something a bit left field out of the bag, so maybe there will also be a surprise or two.
