Good on you Sony for actually making a mini version that is an actual mini version unlike the others who dont and use it as an excuse to bring out a MIDRANGE handset..The other companys say they are a mini version then con the customer downsizing components therefore not making a mini version at all but bringing out a midrange handset with MINI moniker written on it.
Its amazing how in a year we are calling these phones as mini. The Xperia S was the flagship with the hardcore specs and had a 4.3" 720p screen. All this just sounds to be perfect. God knows how much I loved my Xperia S and was a bit disappointed by the size of the Xperia Z when I upgraded. Then again, everyone has their own choice.
If this thing is real, I am saying goodbye to the Xperia Z for sure.
samsung and htc would be scratching theyre heads because of this mini honami, clearly it ends the war of the mini's
Yehey! at last! Sony heard and listen. This is awesome! I guess, if this rumor is true, this will be the best smartphone exactly on your hand, fit into your pocket. But still, this is just a rumor among from rumors. Hopefully this is true.
zamroni, 19 Aug 2013The price of Snapdragon 600 and 800 will differ less than 15 USD. Moreover, S800 has integrate... moreI dont know about the costs, but I think s600 will be suitable 4 this kinda screen /hd, smooth maybe. S800 is better(best maybe) but s600 is good too. We have 2 wait n see, which ones that sony choose
james79, 19 Aug 2013why s600 and lower specs? Remember not everyone wants a big phone! My xperia T is just a littl... moreIt is an 'options', I think mini couldn't be as ' high' as the original one in term of specs. Well it is just my opinion, s600 n s800 wont feel any different in daily used, except gaming n benchmarking.
i want at least 32 gb expandable;
and surely i want to be 1 of the owner of such a handy device.....
If this is real this would be my first Sony/Sony-Erricson ever. I hope this is true. Perfect size and a must have cell
i think honami mini should be like this( if this one is true):
4,3" screen 720x1280
1.7 GHz quad core snapdragon 600
battery 2400 mah
And full glass body
Actually i hope it be about the same size as the iphone 5. With about 400 ppi, 8 mega pixel camera will do, can play all video n sound format n quad core. Think then it would be perfect
put in Snapdragon 600 instead of 800 and keep everything else the same then I am sold
I think 2,400mAh battery would be excellent for this mini Honami. S800 is 20% more power efficient than its older siblings. 720p would just add up to its power efficiency. This would be on par or better than Xperia ZR with its already impressive battery performance.
Actually the codename "Ray 3" is not that surprising.
Remenber, back in 2011, the Sony (Ericsson) "Ray" was a very small phone (3.3") with the specs of the current flagship, the "Arc" (4.2").
I really hope this Honami mini is going to be 'mini' and not still huge like the HTC One mini...
I do hope this one becomes a reality. Small enough, nice specs, sd-slot(ahemm moto X, one mini hmmm), 720p should be enough(ahemm s4 mini hmmm), and of course decent battery.
If this is true, then I'd surely buy it. Waiting long for a small screen phone with good power (S800 is real deal..)
