Sony's frequently leaked cameraphone codenamed Honami could be officially named Xperia Z1. The rumor comes from a recognized XDA-Developers user, who has provided some leaks regarding past Xperia devices.

Additionally, a few press shots of the Xperia Z1 popped in today, but they are sadly rather low in resolution. The renders reveal that the phone is going to be available in three colors - white, black and purple. The other thing they portrays is the glass back of the phone, reminiscent of the original Xperia Z.

The Sony Xperia Z1 (or Sony Xperia Z One) was previously referred to as the Xperia i1 Honami, but should these rumors turn out correct we finally get to learn its official name.

To refresh your memory, the Xperia Z1 (Honami) packs the powerful Snapdragon 800 chipset with Adreno 330 GPU and quad-core Krait 400 CPU. It runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with Sony's Xperia UI on top. As with many of the Sony high-end smartphones for 2013, the Xperia Z1 (Honami) is also expected to be water resistant.

The smartphone's key selling point is its 20.7MP camera, rumored to support 4K video recording and backed up by a Xenon and LED flash combo.

Yesterday a number of camera samples taken with the Xperia Z1 (Honami) were released in the wild, and we learned a mini version of the phone could be in the works as well.

The Sony Xperia Z1 will debut on September 4 at a pre-IFA event in Berlin.
