Sony is preparing to launch a new smartphone in the coming months. It’s expected that the device will arrive as Sony Xperia 1 IV. As the new phone is preparing to be launched, a few key details have been revealed. From the details released, the Sony Xperia 1 IV may not get the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ processor.
The Sony smartphone that has not been announced has appeared on Geekbench and is bearing XQ-CT54 which is the model number. The codename for the device’s chipset is “taro” which should be the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.
This could mean that the Japanese brand is making do with the current flagship offering from Qualcomm instead of going for the upcoming “Plus” iteration. It is not clear on whether this measure is a cost cutting one or if the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ is coming in too late for it to be used in the Sony Xperia 1 IV.
The scores that was obtained by the phone in the single-core and multi-core tests are 1,204 and 3,352 points respectively. These numbers are in the range of what the other devices scored that features the chipset Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. There are chances for things to improve by the time Sony Xperia 1 IV is ready to enter the market.
Many improvements may likely not come with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+. There are rumors about Qualcomm willing to make sacrifices by giving up some of its clock speed for better thermal management.
