A high-end Sony smartphone that goes by the name Sony Pikachu has been spotted on benchmark website GFXbench. The name is perhaps a code name which is perhaps different from the one the device would launch with. Even at that, what readily comes to mind when Pikachu is mentioned is Pokemon.

The Sony Pikachu packs high-end specifications which include Android 7.0 Nougat OS said to be Android Sony Edition. The Pikachu is listed with a 5-inch display but HD resolution (1280 x 720 pixels). The device is also listed as packing an octa-core CPU clocked at 2.3GHz and is powered by a MediaTek MT6757 chip, while the graphic renditions are taken care of by a Mali-T880 MP2 GPU.
