    As MWC 2018 creeps closer, more and more details about the upcoming smartphones emerge on the internet. Japanese manufacturer Sony usually showcases new offerings at MWC, and this year won't be any different. The company is expected to unveil not one but multiple smartphones at the event. One such device is the Sony Xperia XZ2 Pro, which got leaked through a screenshot of its HTML benchmark test.

    Now, another Sony smartphone has made its way to AnTuTu benchmark, revealing some of its key specs. While the smartphone is listed with the model number Sony H8266, it is speculated to launch as Xperia XZ2. This smartphone in December last year had visited the Geekbench benchmark site as well. Looking at the specs, we think it will be a flagship device.

    According to the AnTuTu listing, the Sony H8266 will come equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor coupled with Adreno 630 GPU on top. As far as the memory aspect is concerned, the smartphone is listed with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage space.

    The AnTuTu listing further reveals the handset will arrive with a display delivering a screen resolution of 2,160×1,080 pixels. This means the smartphone will feature a 18:9 display. Finally, the listing shows the smartphone running on Android 8.0 operating system.

    It is worth mentioning that the AnTuTu listing matches with the Geekbench one. On Geekbench, the Sony H8266 had scored 2,393 points and 8,300 in the single-core test and multi-core test respectively. The scores clearly suggest it will give a tough time to other flagships slated to launch this year.


    Other than the benchmarks, the smartphone has also been subject to some rumors. The Sony H8266 is likely to feature dual cameras on its back. The dual camera setup is said to be comprised of two 12MP sensors.

    The dual camera part is important as Sony is yet to launch a smartphone with dual cameras. If the H8266 does arrive with dual cameras, then the brand will finally catch the dual camera train.

    In addition, the Sony phone is said to pack a 3,130mAh battery under its hood to keep the lights on. At this moment, there is no information on the phone's design language. We are hopeful to see a refreshed design with minimal bezels.
