A new device has been spotted on Geekbench. Going by the details on the listing, the device in question is very likely to be Sony's next-gen Xperia flagship smartphone. The fact that it sports a Snapdragon 865 and copious amounts of RAM helps cement that idea.

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).

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
