Xperia XZ3 with Android P and 128GB of storage appears on GFXBench

Sony Xperia XZ3 benchmark
A new Xperia smartphone has appeared on a GFXBench listing and, if the specs are to be believed, it could potentially be the Xperia XZ3 that was revealed just last week in the first set of alleged live images.

The device in question goes by the model number H8416 and is listed as sporting a slightly larger 5.9-inch display that appears to feature a taller 18:9 aspect ratio, following in the footsteps of the Xperia XZ2. Unlike the latter model, though, Sony's Xperia XZ3 looks set to boost the resolution to 2880 x 1440 pixels, putting it on par with the likes of the Galaxy S9 line or HTC’s U12+. Speaking of which, just like the latter device, the Japanese brand's upcoming flagship is expected to include a dual-camera setup on the rear. Nevertheless, the benchmark listing only details the main rear sensor, which sits at 19-megapixels. This does suggest, however, that the camera setup may match the one featured on the Xperia XZ2 Premium. If accurate, a secondary 12-megapixel lens is to be expected. Regardless of this, though, a 13-megapixel selfie sensor is present up front.

Moving on to the internal side of things, just as expected from 2018 flagships, the possible Xperia XZ3 candidate will ship with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 on the inside, with this being coupled with the Adreno 630 GPU and 6GB of RAM. In addition, those who purchase the smartphone look set to gain access to 128GB of internal storage that will presumably be expandable via a microSD card slot. Also, as confirmed by the listing, all of this will be backed up by Android P straight out of the box.

For now, Sony is yet to confirm its plans for any more flagship smartphones in 2018 but, considering the brand’s history, it certainly wouldn’t be surprising to see another premium device announced at IFA 2018.
