A mysterious new device from Sony codenamed the Sony H41333 has been spotted on popular benchmarking site GFXBench. This comes after another device, codenamed the Sony H4233, was spotted on the same website in September. Given that the newer model appears to be a lower-end variant of the H4233, we believe that Sony will soon expand its product portfolio in the near future.
The fact that the phone has been spotted on GFXBench is only indicative; Sony may or may not ultimately release the phone in the mass market. This report by GizmoChina also sheds some light on what the features of the new model might possibly be. We now know that the as-yet-unnamed Sony H4133 will boast of a 5.2-inch display that is fully supportive of a full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.
We began by saying that the phone could be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 chipset. This is because there is the presence of the Adreno 508 graphics which indicates the SD 630 chipset. Incidentally, this is the very same chipset we have previously seen under the hood of other different phones like the Motorola Moto X4, the new Nokia 7 and the HTC U11 Life. The SD 630 SoC will work in tandem with 3 GB of RAM and the internal storage capacity is a quite unimpressive 32 GB.
As far as the optics of the new phone are concerned, they are set to be superlative. For example, the rear camera of the Sony H4133 has a 21-megapixel sensor, identical to a device we had spotted in September while there is support for 4K video shooting. Upfront, we could be witnessing an 8-megapixel selfie snapper. Oh, and the new phone comes obviously preloaded with Android 8.0 Oreo, the latest version of the OS. Both the Sony H4133 and the H4233 could be unveiled at the Mobile World Congress or MWC in 2018.
