Sony H8216/ H8266 Details Surfaces Revealing Flagship Level Specs
Today, details of two new smartphones with model number Sony H8266/H8216 surfaced online in a leaked image. The image shows these two smartphones are variants of the same flagship Xperia H82XX 2018. The Sony H8266 was also spotted on GeekBench earlier this week, where it achieved a single-core score of 2,393 and a multi-core score of 8,300.
The new Sony Xperia H8216/H8266 will be sporting a 5.48-inch HDR TRILUMINOS X-Reality Display with a resolution of FHD (1920 x 1080 pixels) and protection from Corning Gorilla Glass 5.0. Under the hood, it will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset. There will be two variants: 4 GB + 64 GB internal storage (the SONY H8216) and 6 GB + 128 GB internal storage (Which is the Sony H8266). Both variants will be carrying expandable memory options up to 256 GB.
The two variants of the device will likely carry the same optical specs. From the previously leaked image, we know that the devices will feature dual cameras on the rear consisting of two 12 MP camera sensors while offering a 15 MP sensor on the front for selfies and video calling. The devices will run on Android 8.1 Oreo and will be backed by a 3210 mAh battery on the SONY H8216 and a 3240 mAh battery on the SONY H8266 with Smart Stamina and Qnovo Adaptive Charging along with support from Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.08.
The devices will come with IP86-rated water and dust resistant and measure 157 x 78 x 8.1 mm and 159 g, but from the previous report, the lower variant measures 148 × 73.4 × 7.4 mm, similar to the Xperia XZ1 and weighs 156 g.
The Sony H82XX (H8216 / H8266) is expected to be launched in 2018, making it the first smartphone powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor. The device’s identity is still unknown; it may be an upgraded version, as stated, or may start a completely different series. Rumors speculate that it will be Xperia XZ 1S or Xperia XZ 2 in the 2018 version of Xperia.
