Sony might launch its next Xperia series flagship at the MWC 2018 event this month in Barcelona. This Sony's upcoming Xperia series flagship smartphone has just been spotted listed by the Chinese AnTuTu benchmark confirming most of its specifications. The device is listed with model number Sony H8266 and the leaked listing has confirmed that it will run on the latest Snapdragon processor. The device will have a full-HD+ display with 18:9 aspect ratio. The device was previously spotted listed by Geekbench benchmark that said that it will have a 16:9 aspect ratio display but now AnTuTu has confirmed that it will be a 18:9 display.
According to the AnTuTu listing, the Sony's upcoming flagship Sony H8266 will feature a full-HD+ + TRILUMINOS Display with X-Reality along with 2160 x 1080 pixels resolution while there is no information available about the display size. Still we can expect a 6-inches+ display for the device. It will be powered by the octa-core Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform with Adreno 630 GPU and will have 4GB of RAM along with 64GB of inbuilt storage capacity that is expandable up to 256GB with microSD card slot. It will run on the Android 8.0.0 Oreo OS out of the box. No other specifications of the device are listed on the AnTuTu listing.
This upcoming Sony flagship might be available with single and dual-SIM variants according to the regions and will be IP65/IP68 certified that makes it a water resistant smartphone. The device is expected to be measured at 157 × 78× 8.1 mm and is expected to weigh around 159 grams. It will obviously have a fingerprint scanner but we still have to wait to know its exact placement as the Sony devices always have a fingerprint scanner on the side mounted power buttons.
This device is also expected to have a 3210 or 3240mAh battery that will have Qnovo Adaptive charging support for fast charging. For more details, we have to wait for the MWC 2018 event where the company might showcase the device. The above device specification are not official, so these details needs to be taken with a pinch of salt until these are not confirmed officially by Sony itself. Stay tuned for more news and updates about the upcoming new smartphones.
