Sony’s two new phones benchmarked

Two new upcoming smartphones from Sony are outed today via an online benchmark database. Currently, the exact names of these handsets are not known as these go by their model numbers only. According to the GFXBench database, Sony’s F3216 is provided with a 4.6 inch touchscreen display having 1080 pixels resolution.

There is a 21 MP primary camera with LED flash and a 16 MP selfie camera. It is provided with an internal memory of 16 GB and 2 GB RAM for faster processing speed. This smartphone comes powered by the MediaTek MT6755 Helio P10 SoC chipset, which comes with a 1.9 GHz octa core Cortex A53 processor and the Mali T860 graphics processor.

The prototype tested by the GeekBench runs on the Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system. Sony’s upcoming device has a tiny screen and has specifications that easily peg it to be the upcoming Xperia C6. As we know, the new Xperia C6 phone was pictured a few weeks ago in some pictures. This smartphone will be successor to the Xperia C5 Ultra, which was rolled out to the customers last year and will be provided with a 6 inch display.

However, we should keep in mind that the benchmarks can sometimes get their display size wrong when early prototypes are involved. Also, GFXBench has been proved wrong many times before this as well and once showed 4.6 inch display for the devices with larger panels. So, we can expect the F3216 to turn out to be Sony Xperia C6, specifically because the C5 Ultra was focused on its selfie camera as well i.e. a 13 MP snapper with LED flash. The F3216 took things a bit further with a 16 MP snapper.

Another handset which leaked out because it was benchmarked is Sony F3311. This is a low-end offering from the manufacturer with a 4.6 inch Touchscreen display having 720 pixels resolution. There is a 13 MP primary camera and 5 MP camera for clicking selfie images. Sony has provided it with 1.5 GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage. It runs on the latest Android 6.0 on board. It comes powered by the MediaTek’s MT6735 chipset with a 1.3 GHz quad core Cortex A53 processor and the Mali T720 graphics processor.
