Sony's rumoured mini flagship smartphone Xperia X Compact has made a stop at GFXBench on the eve of its launch at IFA (Internationale Funkausstellung Berlin) 2016.
As per the listing, the device is shown featuring 4.6-inch full HD display, Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 quad-core processor, Adreno 530 graphics engine, 4GB RAM, 64GB inbuilt storage, 12MP camera with LED flash, autofocus, face detection, HDR, touch focus and a 7MP front snapper.
All the features mentioned on GFXBench are in line with earlier reports, to make us believe that this is real deal.
Furthermore, Sony is the only OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) in the industry which is prompt in incorporating top-end hardware in compact models to make them look true mini flagship devices. For instance, Xperia Z3 Compact and Z2 Compact series, before that, all had high-end hardware.
Some other brands to cut costs usually place inferior hardware inside and yet market them as mini flagship devices.
Coming back to the Sony devices, we have come to believe that the Japanese company will be unveiling another smartphone dubbed as the Xperia XR as well.
It is widely reported that Xperia XR will sport a 5.1-inch screen, run Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow powered by Snapdragon 820 quad-core processor, 3GB RAM, 32GB inbuilt storage, a 21MP camera with dual-LED flash and a 12MP front camera.
So far, Sony has not made any official comments on speculations. We just have to wait few more hours as the company is scheduled to host pre-IFA 2016 press brief on Sept. 1.
