Unannounced Sony H4233 phablet surfaces with 6-inch FHD display, Android 8.0 Oreo
Sony has already launched its new Xperia XZ1 flagship smartphone for the remainder of the year, along with a compact version of it, but the Japanese smartphone maker have one more surprise for its fans in 2017.

An unknown Sony H4233 smartphone has been recently spotted at GFXBench, a benchmark that stores new, unannounced devices in its database, and judging by its specs this isn't a top-of-the-line phone.

Sony H4233 will be a large handset thanks to its 6-inch display with full HD (1080p) resolution. Even though it's not a flagship, the smartphone is supposed to be equipped with a 2.2GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor, paired with an Adreno 508 graphics processing unit, 4GB RAM, and 64GB internal memory.

The listing at GFXBench also mentions a 21-megapixel rear-facing camera along with a secondary no less impressive 15-megapixel selfie snapper. Both cameras can shoot 4K video, but that's about all we know about them.

Finally, Sony H4233 will run Android 8.0 Oreo, which could make it the third Sony smartphone to ship with the latest version of the OS after Xperia XZ1 and Xperia XZ1 Compact. It remains to be seen whether or not the phone will be introduced by the end of the year, but we'd definitely like to see another Xperia handset with much thinner bezels if possible.

Why can't Sony make phones people truly want? They are supposed to be a premium brand..

They obviously have the camera and audio prowess but time and time again they are content in being behind. Many people still love Sony and and will jump at every given opportunity to pay top dollar for top specs+design.

Sony don't follow trends. They have their own approach at design and software. They love consistency. They don't change designs every after flagship, minimal maybe. Also, they balance quality, beauty, and functionality. They just offer bare essentials. It's Android, any feature you want is available on the Playstore or anywhere.

their ultra's design is fine but it should shed some top and bottom bezel.

Front cam is a 1/2.6" sensor. Front cams are always above screen.
It needs space.
Bottom bezel of Ultra is shorter than top bezel.

If the code starts with H, it means this is a phone for 2018. Probably to replace XA1 Ultra.

C = 2013
D= 2014
E = 2015
F= 2016
G= 2017

Tablet makers should wake up and put the more capable main camera/s at the front.

XA2 Ultra, finally with Snapdragon instead of MediaTek? Count me in. Been drooling over the XA line for quite a while but MediaTek is such a letdown.

@Phonearena and @Cosmin V , Announcing a new phone here that is next years model but didn't report or follow up on this model/phone that GSM ARENA reported(Sony G8541 on GFXBench, the device is powered by a Snapdragon SoC with octa-core, 2.4GHz processor, and sports a 6.2-inch Full HD display. RAM is 4GB, while internal memory is 128GB. The camera department is handled by an 18MP rear unit and a 12MP front shooter. The device runs Android 8.0 Oreo.). Quite possibly a new Ultra version based on the numbers.........
