Sony is heavily rumored to launch a bunch of smartphones, including Xperia XZ1, Xperia XZ1 Compact and Xperia X1 at its pre-IFA, 2017 event on August 31st. Now, there’s a new unannounced Sony smartphone, believed to be the Xperia XG Compact, which has been spotted on the benchmarking website, GeekBench, thereby revealing major specifications of the device.

The alleged Xperia ZG Compact achieved 1349 points in single-core test and 3049 in multi-core tests, as per GeekBench listing. The smartphone is reportedly carrying the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 1.55GHz octa-core processor, and goes on to offer 2GB of RAM along with the latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat operating system.  Strangely enough, Snapdragon 810 SoC is an old chipset; therefore, users are advised to take this information with a grain of salt.
