Sony G83XX uncovered through UAProf – new Xperia flagship on horizon

by XB on 14th June 2017

in Rumours, Xperia XZ series

A new Sony Xperia model has been outed by an official UAProf (user-agent profile). The Sony G83XX will arrive in a single-SIM variant (G8341) and dual SIM variant (G8342), with a Full HD (1080x x1920) display and Android 8.0. The chipset has not been identified through the UAProf.

To give you some context, the Xperia XZ Premium used model number G81XX, while the Xperia XZs had model number G82XX. This compares to the mid-range offerings such as the Xperia XA1 (G31XX) and XA1 Ultra (G32XX). This new handset is likely to make an appearance at the IFA tradeshow in early September 2017. We’ll bring you more details as we have it.

Sony G8341 and G8342 Xperia variants revealed by UAProf

Thanks Chrome and KF!

    Wow, a new flagship with android 8. Kudos Sony.
    FHD with SD835, and 4GB DDR4X ram should make the new flagship the fastest in the android world.

  • KarFar

    1080p… I hope it’s the compact

  • iia3ezu

    Would be even faster without the pre-installed crapware from Sony and MobiSystems.

    And… FM radio? Official Xperia Korean keyboard? And Why does Sony still insist on separate software keyboards for Chinese and Japanese and not incorporate them into the default keyboard, like other manufacturers? Very strange decision.

  • iia3ezu

    Compact will probably be 720p. You don’t want to kill the smaller battery quickly.

    Also, 720p doesn’t look that bad on a small screen under 5 inches.

  • kabiluddin

    You have been crying for a korean keyboard for a long time here. The fact that Sony still doesn’t do it is a proof that they don’t really care about you or Korean language. It’s time to move on, buy another company’s phone that have features you like and don’t come back here. Ever. Again.

  • Moisés

    I have found on internet about : standard (5.2″), compact (4.6) and ultra (6.2″).
    All powered by 835 , new cam tech used on Sony A9 and Ultra would be 4K.
    A little change about design. Maybe 2 rear cams.

  • Micha Persson

    Please, make a new Tablet Compact!

  • Actually, Sony on X range, doesn´t use Xperia Keyboard. They use SwiftKey, so the problema should be fixed

  • I hope Sony Mobile works closely with BRAVIA division. I´d love to see and Xperia with Acoustic Surface! It would be the wow factor. And then, we could probably have justification for huge bezels and a completely waterproof device.

  • Don´t beleive Sony would release another 4K device this year.
    It´s more logical that we wil have the XZ1 and XZ1 Compact.. Atually like Samsung. The Premium segment is like the Note series from Samsung. So we have 3 flahgships per year

  • Pentagen

    Don’t hold your breath. Android tablets and small tablets are both dying breeds.

  • Moisés

    Sim.. Display oled vibratório parece ser incrível.

  • razorg

    Exactly! 720p resolution have been used since the first Compact device (Z1 Compact) and after 4 generation of Compact devices, it’s time for a 1080p Compact! I’d buy!

  • So0o

    I bet its the same like xzs(as design) but with new snapdragon and new android…” awesome flaghip”…

  • AllanKafka

    That’s very rude of you.

  • Frank

    TBH im more willing to see a G5xxx which can be the new compact guy with SD835 and 4GB RAM. Come on Sony dont let me down.

  • Ryuzaki Raiga

    the prices will same as those tv’s

  • Moisés

    100% XZ1.

    5.2″ Full HD LCD 16:9
    Qualcomm 835
    Android 8

    I do not have much info, but it seems Sony need to move from Loop Design to make it a bit smaller.
    IFA phones may have a small design change. Then things turn around at MWC.

    IFA phones may have a feature used on the cam A9 added to Motion Eye. It is called Full Pixel Continuous Shot or something like that.

    Search on Google : Sony STE Oled .. It seems to be more advanced than LG Oled on TVs..

  • fried_egg

    My launch day Z5 will soon be 2 years old, and like the Z1 and the S before it will need a Sept announcement flagship to replace it… In theory I can do a free early upgrade to my 2 yr contract and take a XZprem but it is just too “large” for my liking… oh and I want it in the same GOLD as my Z5 is in… I love that colour.

  • RockStar2005

    5.2″ I like!

    16:9? Not so much. Go 18:9 Sony!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Ulap Posia

    tablet pls? :(

  • Moisés


    I would accept even a tablet of XA1.

  • ew210

    but he is right .

  • Except it’ll come with the world’s biggest bezels!

  • Wolfmachien

    why not try a surface? I find mine much better than any android tablet I’ve ever had/used. Tablet sales are slowing down anyway and if Sony does release one, it’d just be putting its foot in its mouth once again. All that said, I love xperia phones though. Got used to them and now I don’t even like to use my OP3 after breaking the front and back glass on my Z5.

  • Szabó Béla

    crapware on sony, 2-3 aps that you can kill within the first minute of ussage and never see them again. FM Radio. It’s a long story but i’ll try to make it short. Providers dosn’t want FM radio, they want you to use data if you need radio. And this would be the long story to explain, but providers get what they wan’t or that manufacturer won’t have sales in that country.
    Luckily they lost some of their power. But they still have a lots of saying in what’s gona sell well and what’s not. It’s a nasty busines steve was known for being fuckind rude unfair bitch when negotiating with (black mailing) providers to promote their crap. And partly from the same area, partly for spying and stealing samdung’s big boss is in jail.
    Ok, so what power i am talking about. to make it clear go back 15-20 years in time and think about the mobile word, think about their magnificent shops representing them, it was the only way to get the shine new mobile.
    You went in, and unless you where 100% set on which brand and what phone you want to buy. They lead you. Give you advice some fake bad news about the less favourite ones. And a lots of hype and +ness about the one they wanted you to buy.
    Yes some of us always been geeks. Went around aksed others read the leaflets. Some ppl could figure out what he or she wants to buy.

    But the vaste mayority was lead by the nose.

    Didn’t mentioned advertising, and shopfloor place.

    Now go forward to 2012-3.
    what we had is one side full of ishit.
    Other side samdungs sometimes 2-3 generations of the same phone was present next to each other just to take space for samsung.
    Same phone 3 times to show off all the colors.
    Next to this 3 phone from sony one mid range, one highend compact. one highend.
    All three was a lot better in it’s category than anything that samdung had to offer. Lot faster, better camera, better screen, better battery life. Lot better build quality.

    But no one ever noticed them, not a single sale person showed you a phone from sony.

    They helped a lot in making sure that the whole world associates android with samsung. And whatever you compare samsung is always better because it’s samsung.

    Why because the guys at sony played a fair game. Sadly this world dosn’t work like this. You need to move a lots of money under the table to make progress. So until the providers won’t change their mind about fm radio, it’s pointless to ask for it in a flagship.

    There was an article about it, but don’t have the link at the moment. It was called why provider exclusives still excist. Something like that, you get the point. There’s a proper explanation. I’ll post it if i find it later.

  • Szabó Béla

    He said the same, premium every 18 months. Would be nice to know that they will fallow it for real. Hope so.

  • Francis Troy Fabrigas

    Though we’re not complaining about Samsung and Apple using 2K and 720p screens for more than 4 generations, respectively.

  • Francis Troy Fabrigas

    Me want LPDDR5 RAM!

  • Itsarapong Intoum

    If it’s like this then it will be the same as XZP with smaller size.

  • Shamoy Rahman

    Nah, 17:9 would be best, it gets uncomfortable when the screen is too tall.

  • Shamoy Rahman

    Just use fkin google keyboard. Xperia keyboard is ass.

  • Shamoy Rahman

    I would prefer this more.

  • Shamoy Rahman

    Doesn’t exit.

  • RockStar2005

    Hmm. I’d have to compare them in person to really know if I agree or not.

    I’m just tired of hearing people whine about the bezels. lol

  • PoweredBySony

    I won’t buy another xperia flagship untill they make the creen bigger or reduce the bezzels

  • iia3ezu

    Here’s a petition for FM radio feature to be unlocked on all phones: Apple and Android.

    Contact your local telcos and phone manufacturers.

  • razorg

    If I gave a damn about Samsung and Apple, I would. Apple’s 750×1334 resolution is way outdated if you ask me, especially for the price they’re asking for it. And as for Samsung’s 2K resolution; although it’s a joy to use and there’s a noticeable improvement in terms of the crispness over a 1080p display, it’s very unnecessary that so they make their phones to render at 1080p and then upscale it to 2K. It’s a middle resolution and I don’t like it, it puts unnecessary strain on the SoC and the battery if you want to use it at its full potential. However, again mentioning, 720p (although it’s OK at 4.6″) is way outdated. Being unable to watch videos on Youtube at resolutions more than 720p is a big turn off for me, especially if they ask for over $600 dollar for the upcoming Compact, I might as well skip it…

  • Hyung-Woo Jung

    Korean release of the Xperia phones are equipped with a Korean keyboard. However, now Xperias come with Swiftkey and that has Korean support out of the box. As for me, my Z5C is not a Korean release, so I use Google Korean Input. No complaint on my side.

  • PoweredBySony

    I would buy this

  • zip 1792

    So no possibility of having an XZ ultra this year ????

  • Moisés

    XZ1 Ultra is possible… 6.2″

  • Muhammad Najmi Mohd Amir

    That is why sony sales is falling. Especially the user like you

  • zip 1792

    Nice Nice !!!
    With a flash on the front ??

  • kabiluddin

    If Fanboys have that kind of power to influence the overall sells of a company’s phone then other companies wouldn’t have died. Your argument is a pathetic excuse to blame Sony’s failure to their user. The overall success of a company mainly depend on their execs, the decision they made, the product itself and the marketing.

    iia3ezu have been always saying negative stuff about sony regardless of no matter what for the longest time here on XB I didn’t see you tried to stop him there mr whatever you are.

    I said what he deserve to hear. Don’t like sony phone don’t buy it. Especially don’t buy it if they don’t give you the features you have been asking for years. Just don’t come here whining about Sony about the same stuff again and again. No one is forcing you to buy it. So spear us with your bullshit whining logic. .

  • Santos

    STE Oled is super expensive.
    16:9 it’s the best aspect ratio right now. No letterbox and no cropped pictures.

  • Moisés

    XZ1 must be shorter than XZs. Same screen.
    It is possible.

  • Moisés

    No idea

  • Moisés

    Maybe in december

  • Moisés
  • zip 1792

    Because I want to buy the XA1 ultra but I hesitate with this new that arrives IFA 2017 :/

  • Moisés

    I think you better wait.
    If there is no ultra flagship, you get XA1U much cheaper.

  • Moisés

    I know there is Gpddr5. Used on Xbox X One, probably on PS5

  • Warren Chang

    maybe we will get a audiophile grade walkman phone, as they have not walkman brand for phones for around 7 years now, something like onkyo dp-cmx1, truely audiophile grade w

  • Stephen


  • Muhammad Najmi Mohd Amir

    the bs is you actually. if oem cant hear what the user want, how can it help with their sales? how many sony device that have you bought actually?

  • where did you get this? :O

  • kabiluddin

    You tell me loser. How can it (sony) help you with your problem. The problem is within you. You failed to make sony hear what you want, you failed to change sony. Guess what despite monkey like you, razorg, DBS, alex noris and iia3ezu reporting and suggesting the change they need, they still don’t give a fuck about you or your need. That makes you morons a big loser.

    You are accusing people of your failure. You failed to change sony, you monkeys failed to make sony listen to your need. So don’t give me lecture about what should or should say about other people. It makes no sense to listen to you losers. Peace out losers.

  • Moisés

  • MrWalker1000

    same here. Sony is not a follower and you don’t become a trend setter by being a follower. To be honest there is a futuristic sci-fi look to sony phones. They can reduce bezels im sure sony will adress this later on but they dont have to go bezeless.

    I just hope the XZ1 brings something new. XZ premium is too big as a phone.

  • MrWalker1000

    lmfao. it has good predictive algorithm though.

  • MrWalker1000

    i would get the xz1 cuz it wont be a massive phone and have the latest tech.

  • MrWalker1000

    why is smasung and apple still making them.

  • MrWalker1000

    acoustic surface would reduce bezels.

  • Shamoy Rahman

    SwiftKey? Even if it might have that, Google’s typing experience is a lot more optimized and smoother.

  • RockStar2005

    Or they’ll address it now?! lol

    18:9 ftw!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 2018 baby!! lol

    The great thing is 18:9 takes up less space and gives you more screen, so a 6″ phone won’t be as big as it is in 16:9.

    Thanks again for all the info MrWalker!!!!!!

  • MrWalker1000

    yeah anyone who used my phone did not like my keyboard. I forgot you can use a different one.

  • Muhammad Najmi Mohd Amir
