sony xperia z3 review (18 of 26)

A number of alleged Sony Xperia Z4 images have been leaked recently, showing off the device’s chassis. Although we’ve gotten a pretty good look at what we think is the device so far, up until now, we have yet to hear much about the device’s internals. But according to a listing on GFXBench, a new Sony device has made an appearance toting flagship-level specifications.

The device, code-named Sony E6553, could potentially turn out to be the company’s new Xperia Z4 flagship. Previously, the Z3 carried the code name D66XX, while the Z2 was named D65XX. Moving back to the first Xperia Z, that device was named C6603. The jump from ‘D’ to ‘E’ in this case represents the year in which the device was manufactured. And while it’s not confirmed information, the specifications revealed in the benchmark are consistent with what we’d expect a 2015 flagship device to have.

According to the listing, the Sony E6553 has a 5.1-inch 1080p display, a 1.9GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor (4xCortex A57 + 4xCortex A53), an Adreno 430 GPU, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. There’s also a 20MP rear-facing camera, a 5MP front-facing camera, and the device is running Android 5.0.2 Lollipop.

We need to remember that no matter how probable the clues are, nothing has been confirmed by the company. But if these specs turn out to be correct (along with the alleged leaked images that you can find here), has Sony created just another iterative device? Or are the new specifications enough to justify an upgrade? Let us know in the comments below!
