It appears that Sony is preparing to roll out its next flagship mobile device in the form of the Xperia XZ1. The smartphone will most likely arrive in two variants as the GFXBenchmarking website’s listing revealed the model numbers G8341 and G8342.

According to the GFXBench listing, the Sony Xperia XZ1 Android smartphone is expected to come along with an Android 8.0 operating system and Adreno 540 graphics processing unit (GPU), GSM Arena reported.

Smartphone with Android 8.0

Interestingly, the Sony Xperia XZ1 is listed in GFXBench with pre-installed Android 8.0 operating system, while in the earlier GeekBench listing, the smartphone was spotted running on Android 7.1.1 Nougat.

However, as Google still did not release Android 8.0’s final version, it’s hard to expect that Sony’s upcoming device will arrive with Google’s operating system. But, there’s a possibility that Sony Xperia XZ1 that popped up on GFXBench will come pre-loaded with Android Nougat, and the Android O update will follow later on.

Nonetheless, GFXBench also revealed that the smartphone would be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 64-bit octa-core processor and the mobile device will sport a 5.1-inch Full HD display with 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution. This device will also be available with a 4GB of RAM as well as a 64GB of built-in storage.

Camera front

In terms of camera specs, GFXBench made it known that the Sony Xperia XZ1 will sport a 19MP rear camera and the front snapper will boast a 13MP.

The cameras of the upcoming handset would probably resemble the camera used in the Xperia XZ Premium.

Aside from the XZ1 handset, the Japanese tech giant will also unveil the Xperia X1 and Xperia XZ1 Compact handsets during Sony pre-IFA 2017 launch event in Berlin on August 31. The event will start from September 1 until September 6.

The XZ1 and XZ1 Compact smartphones will come along with high-end specs, while the X1 variant would be more of a mid-range option.

The XZ1 Compact will be a smaller model of the above-mentioned flagship smartphone and will be up for grabs with the same RAM and CPU. Nevertheless, this smaller edition will feature a 4.6-inch Full HD display with 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution, Android Headlines reported.

The mobile device will also arrive with a smaller 2,800mAh battery. The Xperia X1, on the other hand, will come with a 5-inch HD display, a 2,800mAh battery and will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 660 system on chip (SoC).
