Sony’s Xperia Z just made landfall in the United States on T-Mobile, though the company isn’t resting on its laurels with that device. Instead, it’s quickly moving forward with a new flagship smartphone, allegedly code named Honami, that should do battle with the next-generation devices from Samsung, LG, HTC and others.

ePrice recently obtained the render above and said the smartphone will likely pack a 5-inch 1080p display, not unlike the screen on the Xperia Z we imagine, 2GB of RAM, a speedy 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 16GB of expandable storage using a microSD card, an insane 20.7-megapixel camera with a Sony G-Lens and a huge 3,000 mAh battery. Sounds like quite the powerhouse right now, though it’s purely a rumor for the time being.

There aren’t any Snapdragon 800 devices on the market right now, but we’re expecting an influx of smartphones packing that processor in the fall. The next big mobile conference is IFA in Berlin in September, so that could be a good event for Sony to officially announce the Honami. We’ll be attending the show, so stay tuned for more details if it does indeed make an appearance.
