According to the Geekbench website (Source link below), a new Sony device has appeared that may be the new Sony Xperia Z4. The Sony Xperia Z4 is one of this years most anticipated flagship phones, and one that many are looking forward to this summer. While rumors have surfaced that the Z4 will not be unveiled at Mobile World Congress in March, we may have a glimpse as to what may be in store for the new Sony flagship.
According to Geekbench the new Sony device, model 78YB16RC98PW62B1, is sporting an octa-core Qualcomm MSM8994 processor which, of course, is the Snapdragon 810. This is the leading thought as to why this device is the New Z4. Qualcomm has confirmed that the Snapdragon 810 will be used by Sony in its upcoming devices. Since this is the first Sony device to appear on Geekbench with the Snapdragon 810, one would assume that this could be the new Sony Xperia Z4.
According to the benchmarks the phone is running Android 5.0.2 Lollypop and will have 3GB of RAM. It is unclear which one of the two suspected variants of the Xperia Z4 this is. Rumors have stated that Sony is expected to release two versions of the Xperia Z4. One will contain a QuadHD display and a 1080p display. This is to allow those who want a longer battery life over screen resolution to choose the lower 1080p display and those who want better screen resolution to choose the QuadHD display. The phone is also reported to have 21-megapixel camera with the new ExmorRS IMX230 sensor that will enable the Xperia Z4 take come amazing shots. Of course, it is also expected that the device will have a measure of waterproofing with improved coverings for the open ports.
It is important as always to keep in mind that this is merely speculation. This could be another device other than the Xperia Z4. Since it seems that we may have to wait until mid-summer for the Xperia unveiling, we may see even more conclusive information as the time passes. But if this is the new Sony Xperia Z4, it is a tantalizing first look, and certainly something that will wet our chops until we receive more information from Sony concerning this highly anticipated flagship device.
