There's been a lot of conversation about the next mobile phone from Sony, specifically around what it may be called.
However, the device, thought to be called the Sony Xperia i1 or Honami, is now tipped to be placed on our shelves as the Sony Xperia Z1.
Picked up by TechRadar, a user called DooMLoRD posted on the XDA Developers forum, who has heard that the device will be called the Xperia Z1 when it breaks cover at the start of September.
This was supported by the leaking of some supposed press images which have appeared on the Chinese ePrice site. It shows the Sony Xperia Z1 in three colours; purple, black and white.
Although these could easily have been mocked up, it wouldn't be surprising if there was another change by the time the device is revealed at the pre-IFA event on September 4th.
