Appearing in the Geekbench results archive, the Sony Xperia XZ1 seems to target the performance level of the rival Galaxy S8, but preserving the identity of its predecessor Xperia XZ.
Following low sales results, Sony has recently announced plans to reorganize its smartphone offering to abandon unsuccessful products and focus its efforts on developing a limited range of devices covering the main price groups. The first targeted models were Sony’s “premium standard” (Xperia X and Xperia X Compact), too poorly equipped to attract buyers interested in premium and expensive phones to please those with a budget just for one Mid-range product.
Thus, Sony remains with the mid-range and premium offer, where the model still referred to as the Sony G8341 code name falls. Considered to be a successor to the Xperia XZ, it uses the Snapdragon 835 chipset and has 4GB of RAM. Apparently, there’s also a compact design (Sony G8441) with the same Snapdragon 835 chipset and a 5″ HD screen.
