Sony ‘Pikachu’ Makes a Benchmarking Appearance With Improved Hardware


Another Sony smartphone has its hardware leaked on GFXBench and it looks like this device could be one of the many that might be announced during the MWC 2017 trade show. It looks like the manufacturer is going to be targeting a variety of pricing markets and looking at the hardware present on this device, it appears to be a Xperia XA successor.

Cleverly Named Sony ‘Pikachu’ Shows up on GFXBench Running a Helio P20 SoC

Sony ‘Pikachu’ appears as a mid-ranger on GFXBench because not only it is touting a 5-inch display, the resolution measures in at just 720p. Readers must think that owning this device is not going to be worth it but keep in mind that the lower the resolution, the higher the battery life. However, this doesn’t mean that you purchase a phone that radiates the least number of pixels since that would just crumble your viewing experience altogether.

We believe that this could be the Xperia XA2 that we reported about not too long ago because the Xperia XA came with a Helio P10 SoC, whereas this one features an MT6757, or a Helio P20. However, the difference here is that the smartphone featured a 23MP rear camera sensor while this one has been reported to have a 21MP rear shooter.

Whatever the case might be, now we know for a fact that the upcoming mid-ranger will have a rear camera that will be able to capture high-resolution images, but let us hope that hardware stabilization is present otherwise the camera would definitely go to waste, especially in areas where there is low light.

3GB of RAM has been detailed to be present in the device coupled with 32GB of native storage. We should mention that this codename is a very clever approach to get the readers’ attention but let us see what surprises the company has in store for us when it announces an army of devices at the upcoming trade show.
