Xperiablog (found via Thenewcamera) posted what they claim to be a real image of the new Sony i1 smartphone. The i1 will be the first smartphone that can shoot pictures as good as Sony Cybershot compact cameras. Sadly Xperiablog doens’t have an image of the back of the camera to see the lens.
But I have a good news too:
One of my sources sent me the specs of the camera (Thanks a lot!). He says the i1 phone (Honami) will have a selectable ISO range from 50-12,800 and it uses Super Steady Shot image stabilisation (2-3 stops). It also has an f/2.0 28mm equivalent lens. The sensor is a 20MP 2/3″ BSI Exmor R one using the same process as as the RX100mkII for superior low light performance. The phone will also have manual controls for shutter speed and some level of manual aperture control and it will have an all new Cyber-shot app which integrates with PlayMemories Online.
May the source can tell me when Sony will announce the i1? Thanks 🙂
