Sony Xperia XZ3 variant with 4GB of RAM benchmarked ahead of unveiling19
Scoring a respectable 8665 points in the multi-score test and 2330 points in the single-core results, the benchmark confirms once again that the Snapdragon 845 by Qualcomm will be powering Sony’s next smartphone. This isn’t exactly surprising considering the processor is Qualcomm’s most powerful offering at the moment, but it is worth noting that it’s the same chip present inside the Xperia XZ2. While on the topic of this device, it seems Sony will once again be offering two variants of the Xperia XZ3. The first, as confirmed by this benchmark, will ship with 4GB of RAM, while the second model will include 6GB of RAM. However, the availability of each will differ by region. Elsewhere on the spec sheet, Android 9 Pie is confirmed to be pre-installed straight out of the box.
In regards to what else can be expected from the smartphone, Sony’s Xperia XZ3 is rumored to include 128GB of internal storage which should be expandable via microSD. Additionally, the brand’s latest 48-megapixel image sensor will reportedly be present on the rear, while a front-facing 13-megapixel camera is rumored. Also, on the design front, the overall look and feel don’t differ too much from the Xperia XZ2. In fact, the only major difference is the rounded corners of the new display panel.
Currently, it’s unclear how Sony will choose to price its latest smartphone but sales should commence in certain regions within the second half of September.
