Sony Xperia XZ3 4GB RAM Variant Running Android 9 Pie
At IFA this year, Sony Mobile is expected to announce its next flagship Android smartphone, the Xperia XZ3. Ahead of the company’s IFA 2018 press conference in Berlin tomorrow, the upcoming smartphone has shown up on the Geekbench benchmark database.
The handset codenamed as Sony H8416 achieved a respectable score on the benchmark website. The results of 8665 points for Multi-core and 2330 for Single-core leaves no doubt that the upcoming flagship will feature the Snapdragon 845. Worth noting that this is the same chipset present in the Xperia XZ2, so performance won’t be a difference to justify the new flagship existence.
While on the topic of the smartphone internals, seems that Sony will bring two variants. One model, confirmed today, with 4GB of RAM and another with 6GB of RAM. The availability may vary from the region. Worth noting that according to GeekBench, this will be the first smartphones to launch with Android 9.0 Pie straight out-the-box.
The Xperia XZ3 is expected to feature up to 128GB of storage with support for microSD card. Furthermore, Xperia XZ3 could be the first Xperia flagship to feature the Sony IMX586 sensor with a maximum resolution of 48-megapixels. At the front, the smartphone is expected to sport a 13MP resolution camera for selfies and video calls. Connectivity features will include Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac dual-band, Bluetooth 5.0 Low Energy, GPS with A-GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo, NFC, USB Type-C port, and 4G VoLTE. The smartphone is also rumored to feature an IP68 rating, a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, and a 3240mAh capacity battery with fast charging support. Overall, the smartphone won’t differ much from the Xperia XZ2, so expect the same large bezels of every Sony’s smartphone. This time, however, the front panel will come with rounded corners.
The Xperia XZ3 is expected to come along the Xperia XA3 on August 30th, during the IFA 2018. Keep an eye in our full coverage of the event
