Upcoming Xperia flagship (H82XX) will have 18:9 display, Snapdragon 845 says benchmark

in Rumours, Xperia XZ series

The upcoming Sony Xperia flagship with model number H82XX will have a 18:9 (2:1) display with resolution of 1080 x 2160 pixels, according to a leak from the AnTuTu benchmark. This appears to go against a now-deleted UAProf (user-agent profile) for this model that we had seen previously, that appeared to confirm it would have a traditional FHD 16.9 display resolution (1080 x 1920).

An earlier benchmark confirmed that the Sony H82XX would utilise Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 845 chipset with Adreno 630 GPU, and this AnTuTu benchmark confirms this. Other specs highlighted include 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage.

We’ll hold judgement to see if this rumour is true, and what the phone looks like at the end of the month. But, we were hoping that Sony would hold out on some of the newest smartphone fads (tall/skinny displays, no headphone jacks etc). Let‘s hope Sony is able to maintain its signature design language in its latest smartphones. We’ll bring you more news once we have it.

Thanks Daivy!
