Latest leaks have confirmed a mobile phone in the making that should be announced very soon. Stats of the performance parameters of a new phone from Sony have appeared on Geekbench. The phone has been given the MPN Sony G8341/SO-01K. If rumours that have erupted are to be believed, we might be looking at the performance of the Sony Xperia XZ1, the latest premium smartphone from the global manufacturer which has constantly been on the radar of tech geeks and leakers.
Sony Mobiles have been a selling very well in the smartphone market for a very long time now. Though they never were the largest maker ever, they never went out of the top 10 manufacturers. A large part of the success of the company is owed to their high-quality devices, which don’t stop performing despite years of use. Even before Samsung and Apple took over the top spot as the largest phone manufacturer, and when the Nokia was riding with the banner, Sony Ericsson was still a large competitor for the world.
Recently, the Japanese corporation released a set of three smartphones, that were named as Xperia XZ, Xperia XZ Premium, and Xperia XZs. It hasn’t been a long time since the launch took place (at the MWC 2017, Barcelona in February to be precise). The rumours about the next in line for the place of the top phone in the series have already picked up the pace. The next phone was earlier rumoured to be Xperia XZ1. The phone was also rumoured to host the SnapDragon 835 chipset, 4GB of RAM, latest Android v7.1.1 Nougat OS, a 5.2-inch QHD display, and a 13MP Camera with f/2.0 SONY Exmor Lens.
The latest image that has surfaced is largely in line with these rumours, as the screenshot shows a 1.9GHz Octa-Core processor. We already know the SnapDragon 835 is clocked 1.9GHz. The memory seems to be 3735 MB, which falls under the 4GB RAM category, along with Android 7.1.1. This falls in place, and we could connect the dots easily to determine that this indeed could be the device we have been following for months now. Even if they decide to name it otherwise, the device has been spotted.
Other phones that have rumoured to be released along the XZ1 are the Xperia X1 and Xperia XZ1 Compact. While the X1 will have similar features that that of XZ1, the XZ1 compact will be the smaller version of the premium device. The smaller phone will come with a 4.6-inch display instead of the 5.2-inch one in XZ1. The Xperia X1 will be a mid-range phone with SnapDragon 660 processor and a 5-inch display.
