Sony has plans to launch a refreshed version of the Sony Xperia Z that will run on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. The flagship device from Sony will soon undergo a major change that will positively affect its speed and performance.
According a recent tweet by Eldar Murtazin, the Sony Xperia Z smartphone is being tested with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor inside. Murtazin said that the smartphone is ‘really fast,’ which in a way indicates that the Xperia Z has become faster than before. The original version of Sony Xperia Z is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset, which has a 1.5GHz Krait quad-core processor. The refreshed version of the Xperia Z will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset, which will have a 1.9GHz quad-core processor.
Because of the differences in these two processors, there will definitely be differences in the speed and performance of the Sony Xperia Z. In technical terms, these performance differences cannot be easily calculated. The two devices need to be tested severely for peak performance, and this is what Sony must be doing right now.
In addition to the new processor, Murtazin also said that the Xperia Z featured an LCD3 display similar to the one used on the HTC One. However, we suggest that you do not get over excited with this news, because there is a good probability that this new and Xperia Z smartphone could actually be the Sony Honami that has been in rumors now a days.
This definitely is a good news, but it also means that there will be no updated version of the Sony Xperia Z. If you are interested to find out more, then be sure to check back later as we try to get more details about this new Xperia device.
