Alleged Xperia Honami/Xperia Z1 Benchmark scores 30625 appears – Snapdragon 800 Confirmed

Just after day XDA Developer DooMLoRD tweeted saying that “Xperia Honami might be named as Xperia Z1 ( Z One ) instead of Xperia i1″, it seems that alleged benchmark of Xperia Hoanmi has appeared.

Alleged Xperia Z1 Benchmark scores 30625 – Snapdragon 800 Confirmed

In an alleged AnTuTu leak with a Chinese device named as “L39h” assumed to be Chinese version of Xperia Honami ( Xperia Z1 ) running on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and Snapdragon 800, 2.3 GHz Quad-core Krait 400 CPU.

Alleged Xperia Z1 Benchmark scores 30625 appears - Snapdragon 800 Confirmed

Xperia Honami aka Xperia Z1 speculations

Well it is certain that this benchmark has been taken on some initial firmware build, may be 14.1.G.1.493 firmware which was listed 5 days ago on PTCRB but today we spotted this 14.1.G.1.493 firmware has been removed from PTCRB site and now both Xperia Honami C6903/C6906 versions are missing from PTCRB listing.

It seems that as firmware improves this AnTuTu score of Xperia Z1 benchmark will improve and we expect it to atleast cross the 33K mark of Xperia Z Ultra Benchmark, as it scored 33099.

AnTuTu score has risen up to 33099 in 14.1.B.0.471 firmware update from 30233 in previous 14.1.B.0.461 firmware version

Xperia Honami aka Xperia Z1 is expected to feature 20.7 MP camera with 1/2.3″ sensor with G-Lens as seen in clear pics till now and 4k*2k UHD video capture / playback. Well it is expected that soon on 4 Sept. at IFA Event in Berlin we will see the official launch of Xperia Honami whose real name is still speculated…

Let us know how far these alleged Xperia Z1 Benchmark score excite you…

Thanks Robert 🙂

But what this predicts ? PTCRB removing the listing of Xperia Honami firmware…Is it because, 14.1.G.1.493 firmware was listed even before the launch of phone or there is another reason behind this…Existemce of Xperia Honami still remains a mystery 🙂 What do you think on this…

Code named as Xperia Honami is about to come as “Xperia i1” but just now renowned XDA developer, DooMLoRD ( mainly for Xperia work ) has tweeted saying that “Heard an interesting rumor… Xperia Honami might be called Z1 (Z One)  :-)”
