Rumor: Sony is working on rugged large screen ‘Togari’ with stylus, etc

News blog XperiaBlog have revealed the details of Sony’s new flagship devices codenamed Sony Togari and Sony Honami Smartphones. Both of these will be water and dust resistant. The report comes a week after the report of another rugged Smartphone Xperia ZR was leaked by the same blog.

Sony Xperia Togari

It will be the first large display device from Sony. A Baidu forum member claims that it might carry a stylus as well. It will have a design inspired by Xperia Z and will come with a 6.44 inch 1080p display which would put its display at 342 pixels per inch (ppi). The Smartphone is rumored to be coming with a very thin body having a glass back.

As per GSMArena, Xperia C680X, whose benchmark scores leaked in February, could be Xperia Togari. The VR – Zone website claims that Xperia Togari might deploy Triluminos display.

Sony Xperia Honami

Sony Honami is believed to pack a dedicated Walkman audio clip (might be on the lines of S-Master MX Digital Amplifier) and a 16 MP or 20 MP Cyber-shot CMOS sensor with Carl Zeiss lens. It might be even more attractive than Xperia Z or iPhone 5 and will be the best Sony can have in a camera or a sound department.

In terms of specs, it will have a 5 inch Full HD screen, a Quad core Snapdragon 800 processor that clocks at 2.3 GHz along with 2 GB of RAM. It is anticipated to come with respectable 2700 mAh or 3000 mAh battery. Another alleged set of specifications includes 4.8 inch Full HD display and 13.1 MP rear camera which is not very exciting as per today’s standards.

We believe if Sony intends to do something new and awesome, it should go to first set of specifications although it remains to be seen how it turns out. The VR – Zone website also claims for Sony Honami to be using a Triluminos display. With these rumors, it is further settled that Honami will only be one phone and Walkman and Cyber-shot will not get separate One Sony handsets. It is expected that Honami might see a July release, at least in Asia.

Some other reports also suggested that Sony is working on an affordable 5-incher which might be available in the second half of the year but since no robust details were available, so we suggest you take this with a grain of salt.

    The Togari with a glass back, what is Sony doing?
    A very large phone that has a surface with no traction.
    Wrapping it in a case only adds to its size and makes it more difficult to pocket.
    I also hope Sony sorts the viewing angle issue out that the Z model has. The other component in my view that needs attention is Sony’s very bland skin.
    It will be interesting over the coming months to see ultimately how the Note 3 & ZTE’s Nubia Z7 compare.
