There may be a big surprise coming along the RX announcement on June 27. According to the new Sony i1 Honami phone will have an interchangeable lens mount! Photoarena posted a rendering of how this could look (Image on top). And a blurred picture of the real camera has been posted by Svartling:

The S1 will feature a 1/2.3 inch Exmor sensor which is exactly the same size of Cybershot compact cameras. What’s also interesting for us A or E-mount camera owners is that Sony will introduce a new JPEG engine that could find his way in these cameras with the next firmware update coming in July-August.
