Benchmark confirms Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 CPU for Sony's upcoming flagship

Sony is readying its new Xperia smartphones and a flagship can't miss from the lineup. We know little about Sony's upcoming Xperia flagship smartphone other than its codename, Sony H8266, and a few unconfirmed specs.

Aside from the flagship, Sony plans to unveil at least three other Xperia smartphones next year, which we only know by their codenames: H8216, H8276, and H8296.

Luckily, we now have confirmation that Sony's flagship, the H8266, will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor. The smartphone has been recently spotted at Geekbench and the scores achieved seem to be in line with those managed by Samsung's Galaxy S9+, which comes with the same chipset inside.

Other than that, we've also learned Sony H8266 is supposed to pack 4GB RAM and Android 8.0 Oreo right out of the box. According to a previous report that we haven't been able to confirm yet, the smartphone should also include a dual-camera setup (12MP + 12MP cameras) and a 3,130 mAh battery.
