1. there is no flash in this photo. 2. there is no flash in all the leatest honami (the device itself) shots. = honami will not have flash. unless you prove otherwise, which you can't. too bad if no flash.

> In reply to [deleted post]That guy was saying that there is no Xenon flash. Not that there is not flash at all. Go back and look at the entire conversation. I'm inclined to agree with him. There doesn't seem to be a xenon flash on this. These are the most recent leaks of the Honami:;idNews=6576

Here (in June) is where GSM Arena got the idea of a Xenon flash. As you can see it is no longer there.;idNews=6290

Actually, I'd bet the Note 3 will be available first. Samsung has only one major device in this category to release and market while Sony has 2 (XZU and Z1).
I'm not a Samsung fan, but they are always first to put their flagships in the markets.

Anyway, I'll buy the XZU when it arrives to my country (Peru) no matter when. Ha The Z1 is good but I want a bigger smartphone this time n.n

Hell I bet they're even getting rewarded for this somehow. I mean you can't possibly be THAT aggressively promoting lies and other bs about products.
