Unannounced Sony F3216 and F3311 smartphones appear on GFXBench
It feels as if hardly a day goes by without a new smartphone leak from a major benchmark database. The latest leaks as unearthed by XperiaBlog are a pair of new Sony models with the designations F3216 and F3311. The former will apparently be the faster model with its 4.6-inch 1080p display, octa-core 1.9 GHz MediaTek MT6755 Helio P10 SoC, 2 GB RAM, and 16 GB eMMC. The rear and front cameras are listed as 21 MP and 16 MP, respectively.
Meanwhile, the weaker F3311 will purportedly carry a 720p display, quad-core MediaTek MT6735 SoC, 1.5 GB RAM, 16 GB eMMC, and 16 MP and 5 MP rear and front cameras, respectively.
Are these the new Xperia Compact and C Series models?
Observers seem to be divided on the final model names for the two smartphones and which existing models they will supplant. GSMArena and XperiaBlog suspect that the F3216 will be the successor to the current Xperia C5 Ultra and will launch as the Xperia C6 once it hits the market. Its small screen size of just 4.6-inches, however, suggests that it may be a Compact model instead as part of the Xperia Z lineup as suggested by PhoneArena. The supposed Xperia C6 leak last month contradicts current predictions on the F3216 and F3311.
