Purported Snapdragon 865-powered Sony Xperia flagship surfaces online
About a week ago, we reported that Sony was working on a smartphone, an Xperia Compact that would give lovers of small devices a decent option in the mid-range segment. Apparently, that isn't all the Japanese company is working on right now, as what appears to be a next-gen Sony flagship has surfaced online.
The device is touted to be the successor to the Xperia 1 that was launched earlier this year. Sony's naming scheme is a proper mess these days, so we have no idea what this device will be named. Xperia 1.1? Xperia 2? Who knows?
The device appeared on Geekbench and while there aren't any obvious identifiers showing it's a Sony phone, the model name listed "PM-1310" conforms to the device ID format Sony uses on its server. For example, the Xperia's ID is "PM-122X-BV". Close enough.
The Geekbench listing itself reveals some new information. Most notable being that the device runs on 12 GB of RAM. That's a big jump from the 6 GB on the Xperia 1 but we're not ones to complain. The listed motherboard is "Kona", which is what the Snapdragon 865 typically goes by on these things. The 4261 single-core and 13422 multi-core scores are also in line with the Snapdragon 865 scores that leaked a while ago (4303/13344).
