Sony just announced its presence at the CES 2019 event in Las Vegas. Moments later, an unknown Sony phone with model number I8134 has been spotted at the gates of AnTuTu, scoring higher than the likes of Kirin 980 SoC from Huawei and Apple’s A12 Bionic.
The device with the model number I8134 showed up on AnTuTu with a Snapdragon 855 chipset, possibly the second device after Lenovo launched the Z5 Pro GT last month as the first device powered by the latest Qualcomm chipset. The Sony I8134 scored a little over 395,000 in the benchmark testing, roughly scoring 52,000 more points than the last Snapdragon 855 chip tested at the platform.
While the name of the Sony device wasn’t revealed in the latest benchmarking, it’s believed that the Sony I8134 will be the Xperia XZ4 smartphone which will come with flagship internals. The device is expected to be unveiled at the CES 2019 event in Las Vegas and was leaked precisely a month ago with Snapdragon 855.
From what we know, the Xperia XZ4 will feature a 6.5-inch Full HD+ notchless display with an unusual aspect ratio of 21:9. Along with the latest Qualcomm chip, the Sony smartphone will feature up to 6GB of LPDDR4X RAM and up to 256GB storage.
The XZ4 is expected to come with a triple camera set up at the back panel out of which one sensor will be 1/2.3-inch in size, optical image stabilization (OIS). The phone will be backed by a 3900mAh battery and it will retain 3.5mm headphone jack.
