Sony has been quite silent when it comes to the smartphone launches after MWC 2107. However, now it looks like it is about to change. Yes, we have spotted a new Sony smartphone on a benchmark website and this one appears to be quite an interesting listing. If you have been following the news lately, then you would probably be aware of the fact that the Sony Xperia XZ1 was spotted on Geekbench. Well, now the same device has made an appearance on GFXBench.
However, one of the noticeable difference which we have spotted this time around is that the Xperia XZ1 which has been spotted on the GFXNBench is running on Android 8.0 as supposed to the previously spotted one which was running on Android 7.1.1. Two variants of the smartphone have now been listed carrying the model number G8341 and G8342. It is expected that the latter one will be a Dual SIM variant.
Talking about the other specs, it appears to be running on Qualcomm Snapdragon Snapdragon 835 SoC and 4GB of RAM. The benchmark listing also shows that it will sport a 5.1-inch 1080p display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. It also looks like it will have 64GB of internal storage, however, it remains to be seen if this will be expandable via a microSD card. In terms of the optics, we are looking at a 19MP rear-facing primary shooter, whereas on the front, there is a 13MP selfie shooter.
As mentioned earlier, it has been reported that it is running on Android 8.0 and the caption reads Android Sony Edition, which is something new. From what it looks like, Sony will likely get rid of most of the bloat and skin and probably a near stock Android experience. However, do make a note that it is not officially confirmed and these are just speculations. Having said that, if you are wondering about its availability, then it looks like it will be launching at IFA 2017, so we hope to get more info on this very soon. Meanwhile, you can let us know your thoughts on this by leaving a comment down below.
