It has been revealed that the soon to be launched Sony Xperia XZ4 scored an unbelievable 395,721 on the AnTuTu benchmarking site. Based on various inputs already in the public domain, it beats everyone’s imagination as to how the device can score so high. The basic reason for this is that the Sony Xperia XZ4 is expected to be fitted with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC and this chipset is reported to have achieved a score of 360,000.
Many Questions Being Asked by Critics
While those who keep a tab on these issues don’t doubt that the overall specifications of the Xperia XZ4 were in no way inferior, including a high 21:9 aspect ratio, an AnTuTu score that is 10% in excess of the known processor has surprised many. Some have questioned the very veracity of the report, particularly since the information has been leaked by Sony. Could the Japanese company have played around with the figures? That will be known only when the phone is launched and other performance indicators will be revealed. The earliest the critics will get the opportunity to question the company’s executives on this will be the CES 2019, around the corner.
But if this score is true, it is remarkable since it leaves behind the usual top scorers like the iPhones behind. At the same time, Qualcomm can go to town flaunting its processor building capabilities with substantial improvements over the previous versions. Competing processors like the Kirin 980 or the Exynos chipsets will be left with doing a catch-up act.
Meanwhile, Some Renders of the Phone Leaked
Right when the AnTuTu benchmark score of the Sony Xperia XZ4 is under discussion, a render of the screen protector has surfaced indicating that the display, with the aspect ratio of 21:9, will indeed be a tall one. Going by the renders, it appears the screen will not have the notch, which has become quite unpopular. Instead, there is a cutout on the top to accommodate the front camera, speaker and the proximity sensor. One can notice a small hole on one side of the top of the display. That must be the notification light.
