Sony Xperia I1 Honami Visits Fcc, October Launch Confirmed

Sony Xperia i1 Honami visits FCC, October launch confirmedThe appearance of the Sony Xperia i1 Honami at the FCC has confirmed that the smartphone is scheduled for a launch sometime in October, though no other details can be gleaned from the filing owing to Sony’s request to keep everything a secret.

The FCC report pretty much confirms an October launch of the device, as Sony has requested that all details of the Honami remain a secret before “2013-09-30,” after which the “formal market launch” will take place. The FCC has naturally fulfilled said request given how except for a software version mentioning “honami”, no photos or hardware details are available for snooping eyes (though it does reveal that the device is capable of handling GSM, UMTS, LTE, 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 4.0 EDR), but hey, at least we know when we can expect to be able to get one for ourselves.
