Sony is expected to announce the upcoming Xperia XZ1 and XZ1 Compact flagship at this year’s IFA, to be held in Berlin on September 1. Now, a Sony handset has appeared on benchmarking site GFXBench with the model number G8541. Sources suggest the handset spotted on GFXBench could purportedly be the Xperia XZ1 Ultra.
Going by the spec sheet, the handset has all the makings of a high-end phone. According to the listing, the device features a 6.2-inch Full HD display. Under the hood, the device runs the latest Snapdragon 835 processor bundled with 4GB of RAM and Adreno 405 GPU. Also, the listing shows the handset running the latest Android Oreo out-of-the-box and comes with 128GB of built-in storage.
Elsewhere, the listing shows that the device features an 18MP primary camera along with a 12MP front-facing camera. Other rumored features include an IP68 certification along with a slew of sensors like NFC, GPS, and more.
While last week, leaked press renders of the Xperia XZ1 also appeared on the web last week. The latest leaked images show the front and back of the handset. And it appears the Xperia XZ1 retains the same omni-balance design we saw with earlier models of Sony’s flagship series. The handset shown in the images sports the same rectangular form factor found on past Xperia flagships.
Sony is expected to announce the Xperia XZ, the Xperia XZ1 Compact, as well as the Xperia XZ1 Ultra at the IFA 2017 trade show in Berlin, which starts September 1. As per earlier leaks, both the Xperia Z1 and Xperia Z1 Compact are said to run the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor bundled with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of built-in storage. The main difference between the two would be the screen size.
Also, popular tipster Roland Quandt @rquandt has also revealed the alleged prices of the handsets. He said in a tweet that the Xperia XZ1 is expected to retail at £599 ($767 approx.), while the smaller Xperia XZ1 Compact is expected to carry a price tag of £599 ($639 approx.)
