With the launch date of Sony’s upcoming new flagship – the Sony Xperia Z4 – still not known to the public, leaks of the specs of the yet-to-be-unveiled have been many. Maybe appearances in benchmarking databases would give us some sort of certainty, and here we have one of those – an unknown Sony device makes an appearance at Geekbench, giving us a look at its specs.

A smartphone made by Sony – sporting a long code name “Sony 78YB16RC98PW62B1” – showed up on the Geekbench benchmarking database. The operating system of the device is Android 5.0.2 Lollipop, the latest Lollipop build put out by Android Dev. The chipset of the said device was marked as “msm8994”, which corresponds to the chipset code of Qualcomm for the octa-core Snapdragon 810.


It is difficult to get other specific data from the Geekbench information, but only a high-end, high-performance – and the kicker, currently unlaunched – mobile device will be carrying the Snapdragon 810, if ever. That is, it could be the Sony Xperia Z4 or any of its other variants. None of the current Xperia line have the Snapdragon 810 as their chipset.

The Xperia Z4 is expected to have the same screen size as the Xperia Z3, and is expected to have very little difference in design. 3GB of RAM is expected — and maybe confirmed by the Geekbench info — although a new camera sensor should give the Xperia Z4 a boost, plus the Android 5.0 experience, of course.
