Sony G8441 appears in benchmark with Snapdragon 835 CPU, 4GB RAM and Android 8.0.0

Rumor has it two new Sony smartphones are supposed to be unveiled in early September at IFA 2017. For the time being, they are only known by their model numbers: G8341 and G8441.

Previous reports claim Sony's upcoming smartphones will be launched on the market as Xperia XZ1 and Xperia XZ1 Compact. They will probably have similar hardware inside, but they will feature different displays (hence the names).

New information about one of the two unannounced Xperia smartphones, namely the G8441, has just emerged from China. The device was recently spotted in AnTuTu benchmark database, along with some of its specs.

The details revealed today come in line with previous reports suggesting Sony G8441 will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835. However, the benchmark indicates the phone has an HD (720p) display, whereas rumors had it the G8441 would include a full HD (1080p) screen.

Other highlights of the recent leak show Sony will include 4GB RAM and 32GB internal memory, as well as two 8-megapixel cameras. Unfortunately, we can't tell whether these snappers are part of a dual-camera setup or the phone will feature single shooters on both front and back sides.

Another interesting piece of information is the fact that Sony G8441 will be running Android 8.0.0 right out of the box. Assuming that's accurate, the other upcoming Xperia smartphone, Sony G8341 will most likely run the same version of Android.

Normally, that should be an error.

More than 319 ppi is pointless in a 4,6 display, well, at least for me.

720p on a 4.7 inch screen works fine. It'll have crazy good battery life.

It’s Sony... this thing will probably have a 2600mAH cell.

8MP? Sony must be joking... Worst thing about Z phones is the 8MP auto mode. Only Z5 lets you change on auto.

My XZ has the option to choose between 8MP and 23MP on Superior Auto.... however, due to only a tiny increase on details and bigger file size I usually just leave it on 8MP.

I know... But imx300 is 23 MP( actually 25). If sensor is 8MP,game over

That 720p and Snapdragon 835 combo would make battery life stellar.

The 720p doesn't surprise me as that is what has been on the Xperia Compact series for some time now. It should make the 835 feel especially snappy considering the Adreno 540 doesn't have to push out that many pixels. It should be noted that at 4.6 inches, the screen is as sharp (in ppi) as the larger 4.7 inch iPhone 7 which doesn't seem to bother people who own one. It comes down to an improvement in performance and battery life versus screen resolution. What is surprising here is the 8MP camera. I'm not sure if we are going to see some kind of stacked sensors like HTC once did or if it's going to feature some kind of one really large sensor to improve picture quality in such a low MP count. Who knows at this point?

New sensor comes only at IFA 2018. Sensor for flagships now have 18 months cycle

U have one job sony... Cut dem bezels! Lol. Isn't too hard? Is it?

Well, it's called brand identity and i love them for that. too many manufacturers try to design their devices with slim bezel and soft curve, but ends up looking like a soap bar. The Sony is consistently rectangular and easily looks the best. you might say the top and bottom bezel should be trimmed off, but i think it's their standard sizing for their top and bezels, a.k.a to make the phone in consistent width/height ratio across all their devices.

Sony phones for all their great performance have failed in the market miserably over the last 3 years. Z3 was the last success for sony. They can't seem to get a great all round package going. The truly great last all round fantastic phone has to be the S7 Edge. Sony needs to try and replicate the positives from that phone for last year.

But at least they are out of the red and are actually making a small profit. So, actually their doing better than when the z3 dropped. Not by sales bu in profit.
