Sony Xperia Z4 benchmark leak reveals Snapdragon 810 SoC
With MWC 2015 fast approaching in the first week of March, all the focus seems to be on the HTC One M9 Hima and the Samsung Galaxy S6, two of the most important Android smartphones of 2015. If rumors are to be believed, Sony will not release a new flagship smartphone until later in the year, as the Japanese manufacturer is expected to return to a yearly update cycle for its flagship smartphone. Interestingly, although we're a few good months from the expected Xperia Z4 release date (June 2015), today the handset was spotted in the Geekbench database.
Before diving into the details, it should be mentioned that the model number is listed as Sony 78YB16RC98PW62B1, but a Sony smartphone with such flagship-grade specs can only be the Xperia Z4.
According to the leaked Geekbench result, the Xperia Z4 will feature the 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC. The Snapdragon 810 is the fastest chip that Qualcomm currently makes, and consists out of four power-efficient ARM Cortex A53 CPU cores, four high-performance ARM Cortex A57 CPU cores, and an Adreno 430 GPU. The Geekbench browser also lists 3GB of RAM. It should be mentioned that the score obtained by the Snapdragon 810 in Geekbench doesn't seem too impressive. The Galaxy Note 4 and its Snapdragon 805 come very close to matching the Z4's score of 1196 points in single-core tasks and 3576 in multi-core tasks.
Some rumors suggest that Sony could introduce two versions of the Z4. The display size is rumored to measure about 5.2 inches across the diagonal on both of these, with one version running a resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels (fullHD) and the other running a higher resolution of 2560 by 1440 pixels (QHD).
