A new Sony smartphone which goes by model number H8256 has been spotted on Geekbench benchmarking website. The listing has thrown some light on the expected specifications of the upcoming smartphone. The listing was spotted by a Reddit user.
The listing was spotted by GizmoChina via a Chinese website Sumahoinfo. In the GeekBench listing, the Sony H8526 got 3033 points in single-core test and in multi-core test it received 10992 points. As per the listing on Geekbench, the Sony H8526 has 8GB RAM and Exynos 7870 1.95 GHz octa-core processor. The Sony H8526 smartphone is powered by the unannounced Snapdragon 855 SoC. The handset is based on the Android 9.0.0 P operating system.
It is the company’s first phone to feature 8 GB of RAM. The Sony Xperia XZ2 series have model numbers H81XX to H83XX. An Xperia XZ3 phone with the model number of H84XX could be the company’s 2019 flagship device. On the contrary, the presence of “H” at its beginning suggests that it could be a 2018 smartphone.
Since the listing is not available on GeekBench, it might be a fake listing. We advise you to take this information with a pinch of salt and wait till the company officially announces something like this.
