Yesterday, a device that could have been the Sony Xperia XZ4 apparently made it through Antutu Benchmark. Now, a second rumor claims that it has done the same with Geekbench 4, with equally impressive results. On the other hand, this 'listing' is nowhere to be found on the actual Geekbench website

A recent leak asserts that a Sony device with the model number I8134 scored just over 395,000 in Antutu Benchmark scores. Now, a new one alleges that the same device has gone to Geekbench 4, and scored impressively well there. On the other hand, as with the Antutu-related image, the listing as portrayed in this post is nowhere to be found on the benchmark's official website.

According to the latest Xperia-related rumor, the 'r1_I8134' scored 3497 in the single-core tests in question, and 12801 in the multi-core ones. It apparently achieved these results on January 2. They are particularly impressive, as a Sony Xperia XZ3 scored only 2392 and 8862 in the single- and multi-core tests respectively a day later. The former device was also listed as running Android 9.0 (Pie) and as having 8GB of RAM.

The purported XZ4 was apparently powered by a Snapdragon processor with 8 cores and a base clock of 1.78GHz. This is not a million miles away from those of the Snapdragon 845; therefore, the chipset could be its successor, the 855, which is known to be an octa-core CPU that can run up to 2.84GHz. In addition, the chipset bears the code-name msmnile, which has been associated with the 855 in the past. However, there is still no direct evidence that this device is the Sony Xperia XZ4, or that it even exists at this point. As this new flagship has also not been reported as having visited any certification body such as the FCC, it will probably miss CES this year.
