Sony Xperia XZ Premium pops up on GeekBench

Someone has performed a benchmark test on a Sony Xperia XZ Premium device which carries the model number: G8141. GeekBench was the test of choice which also revealed RAM and the Android version: 4GB and 7.1.1, respectively. The GeekBench listed scores the Xperia XZ Premium with 1943 and 5824 in the single and multi-core tests.

Despite having a Snapdragon 835 chipset, the unreleased Sony devices performance numbers seem marginally muffled compared to a couple of other SD835-powered smartphones. For example, Samsungs S8+ with the SD835 chip scored 6106 in multi core and 1915 in the single core tests.

Either Sony has under-clocked the SD835 to improve battery consumption, or the benchmark was performed on pre-production software or under poor conditions.

In any case, these numbers are still better than the ones achieved by the Sony Xperia XZs on our review. With its Snapdragon 820, it scored 1724 in the single-core test and 3979 in the multi-score test. Well be benchmarking this device ourselves once we get our hands on it, so well let you know if the numbers change.

In the end, numbers are numbers. A 5% performance margin is negligible in this generation of mobile CPUs, especially if that benefits battery life.

The Xperia XZ Premium is set to arrive in the UK on May 22 for 645 ($834) with pre-orders going live this week. June 1 is the date O2 will start shipping these guys in Germany (749). You can check out our hands-on from MWC here.
