Possible Xperia XA3 (Sony H4493) benchmark confirms processor and more

At Sony’s IFA event later this month, the company is largely expected to unveil its next flagship, the Xperia XZ3. Alongside this, recent certifications have suggested that an Xperia XA3 may also arrive and now new benchmark results are seemingly backing this up, although the smartphone is using a different model number.

Overall, the Xperia XA3 in question which goes by the name Sony H4493 scored a total of 853 on the single-core test, while this number increased to 4172 when all cores were working together. This, according to the screenshot, was achieved thanks to the presence of a Snapdragon 660. Additionally, it’s worth noting that 6GB of RAM is present. Also, Android 8.0 Oreo is listed as being pre-installed straight out of the box but with the recent release of Android 9 Pie, Sony could potentially update the device to the newer OS version ahead of the release.

Design-wise, the Xperia XA3 should follow in the footsteps of the current Xperia XA2 by sticking to an aluminum frame and a plastic rear. Unlike this device, though, the newer model should make use of a taller 18:9 display with a resolution of 2160 x 108o pixels. This will allow for a significant reduction of bezel size up front and should allow the smartphone to better compete with rival offerings.

As mentioned above, the Xperia XA3 will most probably make its official appearance at Sony’s IFA event on August 30. What remains unclear for now, though, is what release timeframe the company has in the works and how it will choose to price the model.

How many times You have to be told that H44xx is a Dual SIM variant of XA2 Plus?

Geekbench often confuses SD660 and 630. Scores suggest the latter one.

You're right. But still would be weird to have the same soc as the xa2. I have a xa2u. This was the first time I bought a mid range device and all was fine until pubg came along

When You look at the name You will see that XA2 Plus is next XA2 device, so it's not strange that it uses same SoC ;)

That would make much more sense seeing the score.
