Leaked Sony Xperia ZU Benchmark: Fastest Phone Yet?

Sony to Launch its Xperia ZU on June 25: Fastest Phone Ever?

As if the rumors of the upcoming Sony Xperia Z Ultra weren't enough, a newly leaked benchmark now suggests that the phone will shatter the world record for fastest phone on the market. Not only that, but if all the supposed specifications are true, the Sony Xperia ZU will set a new standard for the high-end phone market worldwide, both in terms of quality and features.


We'll start with the CPU, as the quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 is said to be clocked at 2.2 GHz and outperforms basically any other phone on the market. Among the collection of bruised egos is Samsung's Galaxy S4 octo-core processor, which was beaten by the Xperia ZU by almost 800 points on the AnTuTu benchmarking app. To keep up with the power requirements, Sony has packed in a 3,000 mAh battery.

The 6.4 inch X-Reality display would take advantage of SoC and bring the resolution to Full HD 1080p, resulting in a 342 ppi pixel density. Backing up the SoC would be 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage expandable through MicroSD up to 64 GB, and a rear 8 MP Exmos RS camera with a supporting forward facing 1.3 Mpx lens. Connectivity could include WiFi, Near Field Communication (NFC) and Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL), with 4G LTE and HSPA+ to be expected.

As if you haven't had enough, the device might be IP55 and IP58 certified, meaning it would be dust resistant and waterproof up to a meter. A final image suggests that the phone might be delivered with a stylus, and if not, would allow other stylus-like objects to draw on the screen with remarkable accuracy (and maybe a few scratches). While all these facts are yet to be confirmed, we are awaiting the June 25 Sony Launch event in Munich with baited breath.

    man i think the 3000 mAh battery is not super good for this size screen. Why not just go for 3500 mAh and thicken the phone a bit.

    6.4 inch screen...more like a phablet.

    So what does the quad core CPU get you? Phones don't really strike me as having multiple apps doing something useful at the same time. Give me a dual core and boost the battery life instead.

    Fully agree, I am starting to get sick of the design focus phones have, I want function, stability and battery life. Though this looks pretty good specs wise, more battery and a little thickness would go a long way in my opinion

    Sounds like a beast, and that size is not for everyone. Nevertheless, it will be very hard for any phone to beat it.

    I'm highly suspect of a 6.4" and a high powered 2.2ghz cortex a15 based quad core design soc giving enough battery life on 3000mah. They already cant fit batteries larger then that in smaler phones. I'd feel a lot better about this phone if it had atleast a 3750mah battery or better yet 4000mah which shouldnt be a problem at 6.4 inches.

    If they will make the battery removable so a person can have a spare or two for a quick change, I may very well be considering this as my next phone.

    tegra4 36489 antutu, but it remains to be seen if they can get that in a phone at 1.9ghz. Though it seems 1.8ghz would be very close or above S800 here anyway. I'm wondering what battery life would be like at 1.7-1.8ghz (all A15's suck power, but samsung is running theirs so we'll have to see). Samsung has theirs at 1.6ghz, so even 1.7 seems doable & should be not much of a loss vs. S800. So the question is the gpu and actual perf in games (and who looks better), not to mention we have nothing on the power use of S800 yet or T4 for that matter, but we should have an idea with shield in a few weeks. Curious about the price also, though with previous socs from NV being $23-25 not sure this makes much difference in a build price...LOL. Also who knows how bad it would be in battery with a modem added. I'm guessing S800 comes out pretty good in the phone fight, but T4 is aimed at tablets sans modem.

    T4i is a whole other issue as it's aimed at $100-200 phones with larger sales volumes so NV should do pretty well on both fronts. In a tablet S800 clearly loses in cpu already, so again only the gpu is in questions. Even at 2.3ghz S800 cpu won't win in a tablet (100mhz doesn't make up 4000 points in antutu).
