Android users are now looking forward to Oreo-ready devices, and fortunately, one such device has been spotted on a benchmarking website. Listed as Sony H4233 on GFXBench, the purported smartphone seems to be running Android Oreo out-of-the-box. Besides the operating system, a bunch of specifications of this mystery phone have been leaked as well.

According to the listing, the Sony smartphone carrying model number H4233 will sport a 6-inch display with Full HD (1080p) resolution. Under the hood, the smartphone features a 2.2GHz Snapdragon octa-core chipset, which is accompanied by an Adreno 508 GPU. While the chipset name is missing, it is likely the Snapdragon 630 SoC. The smartphone is also shown with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.

For photography, the leaked Sony smartphone is shown with a 21-megapixel camera at the rear, with support for 4K video. The smartphone’s camera will also come with auto-focus, face detection, flash, HDR support and touch focus. Up front, will be a 15-megapixel camera, which will also support 4K video recording. ALSO READ: Android phones running Nougat or lower vulnerable to overlay attack

While the leaked smartphone is certainly interesting with newest OS, there is no information from Sony about any such smartphone being released in the near future. So, it would only be wise to take this piece of information with the customary pinch of salt.

However, even though this Android Oreo smartphone is still a mystery, earlier this month, Sony revealed the list of Xperia smartphones, which will soon be receiving the Android 8.0 Oreo update. The list includes Xperia X, Xperia X Performance, Xperia XZ, Xperia X Compact, Xperia XZ Premium, Xperia XZs, Xperia XA1, Xperia XA1 Ultra, Xperia Touch and the newly announced Xperia XA1 Plus.

Sony has not made any revelations of a specific date as to when the software update will be rolled out. The company has outlined that the update roll out will be carried out in phases and thus the OTA update will reach to all the supported devices sooner or later depending on the market. ALSO READ: 10.or E smartphone with 4,000mAh battery launched in India, prices start at Rs 7,999
