Sony Xperia SL: Benchmark confirms 1.7GHz clock speed

by XB on 20/07/2012

in Rumours


The AnTuTu benchmark has confirmed that the Sony Xperia SL (LT26ii), aka the Xperia S refresh, will have a 1.7GHz dual-core clock speed as we have previously reported. Whilst the chipset hasn’t been unveiled, we believe it will just be an overclocked Qualcomm S3 Snapdragon MSM8260 chipset that is currently used in the Xperia S. The handset tested is running on Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich.

    Probably just like with the Xperia Arc S. Qualcomm stopped producing the 1.5Ghz version, but Sony doesn’t want to create versions of the same product with the same name as it causes people to lose trust. So they just named their new batches with the 1.7Ghz-version SL instead of S.

    Take the HTC One S for example. It first came with the Snapdragon S4. Then HTC decided to start using the (quite a lot slower) Snapdragon S3 because they had a shortage of the S4’s. Unfotunately there is no way to tell if you have the S4 or S3 without turning it on. That is something that is incredibly annoying and might slow down sales as people don’t want to risk getting a slow version.

    The SL is just the Xperia S with a new chip, that is all. There won’t be any changes, and probably the software from the SL will be compatible with the software on the S, just like how Arc S software works perfectly on the Arc.
