Sony Xperia H8266 With Snapdragon 845 SoC and 4GB RAM Benchmarked, Expected to Launch at MWC 2018

Sony intends to unleash its new set of flagship smartphones at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Though the company has not officially announced any of the phones, a new Sony Xperia phone with model H8266 appeared on AnTuTu benchmark. The benchmark details some of the key specifications of the device. The benchmark reveals the Sony H8266 features an FHD+ display with 2160 x 1080 pixel resolution. This also means the smartphone will be offering an aspect ratio of 18:9. The Japanese tech giant finally seems to be ditching its OmniBalance design to embrace the trendy full-screen design.


Under the hood, Qualcomm’s top range system-on-chip, the Snapdragon 845 will be power the H8266. The high-end chip is backed by 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory, presumably expandable via a microSD card. The benchmarked device also shows Android 8.0 Oreo meaning the alleged smartphone will run Oreo out-of-the-box.

The H8266 was previously spotted in the Geekbench database, having run the well-known benchmark. The device achieved a whopping 2393 score in the single-core test, and 8300 for multi-core. The listing confirms the model is powered by Snapdragon 845 paired with 4GB RAM and runs Android 8.0 Oreo.

Previous leaks hint the Sony H8266 will feature dual 12MP camera module on the rear and a 15MP selfie shooter. The device is backed by a 3,240mAh battery with Qnovo Adaptive Charging Support. The said smartphone is also IP68-certified, meaning it is dust and water resistant.

All the past leaks surrounding the Sony H8266 suggest that it could be the forthcoming Xperia XZ2 flagship phone. Though the Japanese OEM is expected to announce the H8266 at MWC 2018, its offering doesn’t go on sale before mid-2018 due to an industry-wide shortage of Qualcomm’s latest premium chip.

Reports also suggest that Sony is working on an advanced model called the Xperia XZ2 Pro. The Xperia XZ2 Pro is rumoured to debut as world’s first smartphone with 4K OLED display with taller 18:9 aspect ratio and 3840×1920 pixels screen resolution. Other features include Snapdragon 845, 6GB of RAM, 128 GB of storage, Android 8.1 Oreo and dual rear cameras.

SD 845 is 25% faster on an average than SD 835 in most tests (pic attached) conducted by Qualcomm on top of the line hardware !! But there is still no beating the champion – last year’s A11 Bionic – which is still substantially ahead in most benchmarks and in real life !! Sad & tired of having to see Android flagships playing catchup !!

Even with SD835 phones like pixel 2 and oneplus 5t easily beats iphone x in speed. Just think with SD 845 they would crush iphone x. Benchmarks doesnt matter in real life. Only hardware is not important, even software should be bug free. IOS 11 is the most buggiest OS in the history. Currently Google Android oreo is years ahead of IOS 11.


Interested in knowing the dimensions.


There is compact series in them for people who have small hands!!!!


That’s what I wanted to know. I am at a loss to understand why smaller width devices like Sony XZ1 Compact released last year with 835 chip – a solid high end device for small hands – cant be manufactured.


It’s disappointing that we won’t be able to see what we saw through Samsung Galaxy S7 and S6!!!!!!
