Thanks to a wealth of pre-release leaks, there’s not much we haven’t seen of the Sony Xperia Z1 (or “Honami”) at this point. But now there’s an official-looking render of the device to confirm what we’ve been seeing for the past few months — a phone very similar in design to the older Xperia Z, complete with hefty bezels.
The image from Chinese forum Digi-Wo shows the Z1 in the standard Sony tricolore — black, white and purple — the same colors used by the Xperia Z and Xperia Z Ultra. The back of the purple device shows off one of the Z1’s most talked-about features, its 20-megapixel rear camera with Sony G Lens. On the inside, the Xperia Z1 is rumored to pack similar hardware to the Z Ultra — a Snapdragon 800 CPU, 2 GB of RAM and microSD expandability.
The Galaxy Note 8.0 is rumored to be equipped with a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution display, 1.6GHz quad-core processor and a 5-megapixel rear camera. The slate is also believed to include 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a microSD slot and Android 4.2.
We of SamMobile just received a huge tip from our insider at Samsung and according to him this is the next generation of the Galaxy S series, the Galaxy S IV. We can’t 100% confirm if this is indeed the Galaxy S IV but the picture he sent us looks really sharp and doesn’t look fake at all. The design of the device looks also very similar to the design of the Galaxy S III and the Galaxy Premier, which makes this picture more authentic.
By looking at the picture of the device we observed a few things, the device will use on-screen buttons as there is no home-button present on the device (Finally), the bezel around the device is much thinner and the device features a large display.
We didn’t get any confirmation on the specifications of the Galaxy S IV but the rumoured specifications are listed below:
– Exynos 5450 Quad-Core CPU clocked at 2.0GHz
– Mali-T658 GPU
– 2GB of RAM
– 4.99” SuperAMOLED FULL HD resolution (1080×1920) Display
– 13 Megapixel Rear Facing Camera
– 2 Megapixel Front Facing Camera
– Android 4.2.1 (Out of the box)
– Source claimed to have more pictures.
– It’s hard to believe.
– Mix between Galaxy S III / Galaxy Premier could make this render (press photo) looks real.
– Before the official presentation by Samsung is nothing 100% sure.
