Sony is Preparing a New Xperia with the Snapdragon 765 5G SoC

Posted on

A Sony Xperia equipped with the brand new SoC Snapdragon 765G has just made an appearance on the Geekbench platform. The brand is preparing to expand its mid-range offer in 2020 with a 5G compatible model that we hope to have under the € 400 mark.


We are less than three months away from the MWC in 2020. Sony will take advantage of the Barcelona fair as usual to renew its high-end and mid-range offer. We should discover the successor of the Xperia 1 which, according to the latest news, could take the name Xperia 3 while the Xperia 2 that we expected at IFA 2019 did not finally see the light of day. The brand had rather unveiled a Xperia 5 “compact” .

As for its next proposal in the mid-range segment, we haven’t had much to get our teeth into in recent weeks. But that was before a mysterious model presented under the code name K8220 appeared on the GeekBench platform on December 18. Like the Xperia 3, Sony’s next mid-range will be 5G.

Unless surprised, it should be the successor to the Xperia 10 . Sony having accustomed us to an unpredictable nomenclature of its smartphones, it is difficult to guess the name that this model will take. All we know at this point is that it will ship the SoC Snapdragon 765G recently presented by Qualcomm . The chip will democratize 5G in 2020 by bringing it to mid-range smartphones. Manufacturers like Realme and Oppo are already in pole position to adopt the processor and Sony should be added to the list.

The record of the Sony Xperia “K8220” appeared on Geekbench reveals that the device managed to obtain a score of 465 points in single core and 1,757 points in multicore mode. Note that these scores are based on the Geekbench 5.0.3 tool. Among the other features unveiled, we know that the smartphone will have a RAM memory of 8 GB and that it will be launched on Android 10. We do not know more for the moment. More info is expected in the coming weeks.
