Thanks to the well-known Geekbench performance test, we have been able to confirm that the Xperia XZ2 from Sony will use a SoC Snapdragon 845, a chip that we know is the top of the range for Qualcomm for the next generation of smartphones.
This new SoC will not only be present in the Xperia XZ2, but it will also be assembled by manufacturers such as Samsung in its Galaxy S9-S9 + and Galaxy Note 9; LG in its G7 and V40 and other companies such as HTC and Xiaomi in its new end-of-range terminals.
In the accompanying image, we can see the leak that has allowed us to “confirm” the presence of Snapdragon 845 in the Xperia XZ2, although we must bear in mind that this name is provisional and that Sony could choose to use a different name in its next terminal star.
We say this because that new smartphone is going to be a major change at the design level that was in fact confirmed by Sony itself. In theory, the Xperia XZ2 will suppose a partial rupture with the design language Omnibalance that had used the Japanese company until now.
It remains to be seen what changes this movement implies, but for the time being, we can assume that the introduction of the 18: 9 screen format and a considerable reduction of screen edges will occur.
We assume that the rest of the keys will remain identical (or almost) to what we have seen in previous terminals, which means that despite the use of this new screen format the terminal would still have very sharp angular lines.
