Earlier rumors of the phone

This is not the first time that information regarding the upcoming Sony handset has been leaked. In May this year, rumors were rife that Sony would launch three new handsets in its Xperia series, which were said to include the Xperia XZ1, Xperia XZ1 Compact, and the Xperia X1. The reports also indicated some basic features that the handsets would sport.

In case of the Xperia XZ1, the rumors suggested that it may come with a 5.2-inch Full HD display, which will be powered by the Snapdragon 835. These earlier reports also mentioned that it would run on 4 GB of RAM, similar to what the GeekBench listing reveals. The battery of the handset was said to be of 3,000mAh capacity.

In June another rumor surfaced which claimed that the G8341 would be running on the Android O operating system. However, this aspect seems to have changed since that time, as the recent GeekBench listing revealed it to be running on Android 7.1.1. It may indicate that the company is still pondering on which of the two platforms it should support for the handset.
