Sony is expected to launch the Xperia XZ3 tomorrow. Less than 24 hours before the announcement, the device has been seen on Geekbench. Apart from the benchmark result, official renders have also surfaced online.

The Sony Xperia XZ3 is powered by a Snapdragon 845 processor and has 4GB of RAM. It is also shown to be running Android 9 which means it should be the first phone to launch with Android Pie out of the box. The phone which is benchmarked as the Sony H8416 scored 2330 points and 8665 points in the single-core and multi-core tests respectively.

The Xperia XZ3 has also been reported to have a squeezable frame similar to that of the HTC U12. Details about the functions baked into the action are still unknown but it is said to act as a shutter button when taking pictures though that seems to be useless since there is a dedicated hardware camera key.

Sony will announce the Xperia XZ3 at IFA Berlin tomorrow at 1 PM CET.
