If the teaser image is believed to be true, then Sony will be launching purple coloured version of Sony Honami too with as usual black and white options. In addition, the side view of Sony Honami in the image is somewhat similar to all the leaked images which we saw till now.

When the image is zoomed in, we can clearly notice the Sony's signature power/lock button in the center with a huge flap above it. It looks like the flap hold's place for both microSD card and SIM card. Below the button is the purple coloured volume rockers. As per the image, the frame of Sony Honami is made up of aluminium and the display is on top.

What we can't see in this teaser image, is the presence of dedicated camera shutter button, which we saw in all the leaked images. So this could be that, this image is not final or even not real. The image shows "September 4 2013 – Berlin" in reference to its likely revealing at IFA in September. The date is not so far, just under a month to wait for official details, till then have a look at the images.
