Sony has a new Xperia XA1 or rather Xperia XA 2017 being lined up and the phone has just made a stop by benchmarking website Geekbench.
As usual, the listing gives us details of the phone’s performance during single-core and multi-core tests alongside a bunch of specs that we can expect to see on the Sony Xperia XA1. For starters, the phone has been listed with model number G3116 and as expected, it comes powered by the latest Android 7.0 Nougat OS out of the box.
As for the hardware specs, the Xperia XA1 in the benchmarks has a MediaTek MT6757 octa-core or simply an Helio P20 processor that is clocked at a speed of 1.64GHz. This is then paired with a Mali-T880MP2 graphics processing unit alongside an impressive 3GB RAM, one more than last year’s Xperia XA model. The processor on board is also an upgrade over last year’s Helio P10, something that should translate to better performance scores.
From the benchmarks, the Xperia XA1 managed a score of 858 during single-core tests. For a midrange phone, this quite an impressive score and with further software optimizations, we expect this figure to get better. The story is the same when it comes to multi-core test, where the impressive 3577 score should also get better when everything is finally put together.
Other specs and features of the Sony Xperia XA1 or Xperia XA 2017 include a powerful 23MP shooter on the back that ships with an aperture of f/2.0, phase detection autofocus (PDAF) and a LED flash as well as a decent 8MP shooter on the front with the same f/2.0 aperture for greater selfies. To keep the midrange handset alive will be a not so impressive 2300mAh battery unit, but since the screen is just at 5.0 inches with a 720p (HD) display resolution, this battery capacity isn’t that terrible.
