IFA 2017 | Sony G8441 hits AnTuTu
Sony is expected to unveil two new flagships at IFA 2017 and, if the rumors turn out to be right, they will debut as Xperia XZ1 and Xperia XZ1 Compact. Although nothing is official yet, the Sony G8441 has just surfaced on AnTuTu. This model should launch as the Xperia XZ1, while its Compact sibling apparently goes as G8341 for now.
Powered by a top-of-the-line Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, the G8441/Xperia XZ1 runs Android 8.0 out of the box and features 4 GB RAM, 32 GB internal storage, but its screen apparently only provides 1,280X720 pixels, and the camera sensors offer just 8 MP. Since this might still be a prototype, we might see some improvements in the final product.
The prices mentioned by various insiders familiar with the matter seem quite high, especially given the specs - around $735 USD for the G8441 and over $850 USD for the bezel-less, 6-inch G8341. We only need to wait for the official launch and hope that Sony tweaks the specs and pricing before the new flagships arrive in stores.
