Smartphone to run on Android 8.0 Oreo

The previous renders of the handset suggest that the device will feature a 3.5mm headphone jack. However, the recent Geekbench listing revealed that the smartphone will run on Android 8.0 Oreo operating system, but other reports are claiming that the handset will arrive with Android Nougat OS out of the box. The mobile device will be equipped with a Wi-Fi 802.11, A-GPS, USB Type-C, side-mounted fingerprint sensor, gyro, proximity and accelerometer.

The Sony Xperia XZ1 will be up for grabs for 599 GBP, while the new Compact model will cost 499 GBP. Nonetheless, these price tags will likely change when the smartphones will arrive in the United States. In spite of that, the GBP listing seems to indicate that both mobile devices are not cheap.
