New reports indicate the likelihood of announcements of the new flagship smartphones Sony Xperia at the two forthcoming technological exhibitions – CES 2018 and MWC 2018. Perhaps not all the expected devices will feature full-screen design. But among the proposed characteristics of the novelties, there is also a very pleasant feature, which is as important as the thickness of the screen frames.
It is expected that in February 2018 at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018, Sony announces the flagship smartphones based on the new chipset Snapdragon 845. This chipset in many ways ensures the performance of the device. In more detail, the alleged features of new products were considered by Anvinraj Valiyathara (Anvinraj Valiyathara) on the pages of the resourceplayfuldroid.com.
New “leaks” showed the numbers of models of future phones from Sony – H8216, H8266, H8276 and H296. It is reported that the Sony H8266 will be equipped with a Full HD display and support for Bluetooth 5.0. The software platform for this smartphone will be released in 2017, Google’s operating system Android 8.0 Oreo. It should be noted that the same smartphone manifested itself in the benchmark Geekbench.
Shown a screenshot of the listing Geekbench, reflecting the technical characteristics of the novelty, allows you to make a definite idea of the smartphone. Its chipset is Snapdragon 845. The amount of RAM of the device is 4 gigabytes.
In a single-core test, the Sony H8266 model scored 2393 points, in the multi-core testing – 8300 points. Indicators H8266 in the benchmark Geekbench, comparable to those that are characteristic of one of the most anticipated smartphones of the upcoming technology season – Samsung Galaxy S9 +. These characteristics appeared on the Web earlier.
According to rumors, the considered smartphone can be presented to the public as Sony Xperia XZ of the new generation. Earlier it was also noted that Sony Xperia XZ2 will be characterized by very thin screen frames, which is shown by the renderer, which previouslyhas already been considered. However, today all the “known” about the phone not yet shown is just speculations.
A slightly different picture emerges when considering the alleged features of the model H8266 by Omar Sohail on the pages of the resource wccftech.com. The main differences are in the amount of RAM and the time of the likely announcement of the novelty. According to the announcement, the model H8266 will be equipped with a 5.48-inch FHD-display. It is interesting to note that using a 5.48-inch screen means that the famous Japanese vendor will not equip this smartphone with a trendy screen with an aspect ratio of 18: 9, which is the most visible sign of the modern flagship.
As previously noted, the new smartphone H8266 will be equipped with the Snapdragon 845 chipset. So early, at the very beginning of the year, the flagship announcement based on the chipset of high-end devices of the new generation is impressive. The amount of its RAM will be 6 gigabytes. And it can become the first flagship of the Xperia line, which will be equipped with 6 GB RAM. The novelty can be presented already at the upcoming CES 2018. There is also an unconfirmed assumption that Sony plans to introduce this device in several configurations, which does not exclude the likelihood of the announcement of the version with 4 GB of RAM, which is shown by the benchmark.
In addition to 6 GB of RAM, it is also noted that the smartphone in question, which may be seen soon after the New Year, will be equipped with a built-in UFS-drive with a capacity of 128 gigabytes. The company will also provide users with the opportunity to expand the available capacity of the drive with support for microSD memory card slots. And this is a very nice feature on the background of the fact that many smart phone vendors refused to bundle their devices with memory card slots in order to make the design of devices more elegant.
According to rumors, the battery of the H8266 model will be characterized by a capacity of 3210 mAh. Given the screen resolution of the device in question, this capacity may be sufficient. However, as mentioned above, users are waiting for the appearance of “frameless” Xperia smartphones on the market, as the high ratio of the screen size to the size of the device allows the device to look more beautiful, which is no less important for users than hardware performance and software functions. The year 2018 could be the year for Sony’s smart phones Xperia, a significant yearthe redesign, which will allow the company’s devices to correspond to one of the most striking trends emerging in the digital devices industry in the current year, 2017.
