Sony ‘Honami’ Camera App Ported To Latest Xperia Devices


Sony’s working on a new flagship smartphone codenamed the “Honami,” and although the Japanese company has managed to keep the handset itself under wraps, it hasn’t been able to stop its software from leaking into the wild.

A system dump from a Canadian carrier has revealed many of the handset’s internals, while its Camera app has already been ported to the latest Xperia devices.

The Honami’s Camera app boasts a whole new user interface, plus a ton of new features like augmented reality, time shift, visual search, and lots more. It also offers lots of snazzy filters and effects, and performance improvements that make snapping pictures much faster.
