A smartphone with the model number l8134, believed to be the rumored Sony Xperia XZ4, has leaked on Antutu Benchmark bearing the highest benchmarking score we’ve seen yet.
The benchmark for the upcoming Sony flagship is 395,721, which is higher than the typical scores posted by the powerhouse Apple iPhone XS Max and Huawei Mate 20 Pro running the A12 Bionic and Kirin 980, respectively. It’s even higher than previous benchmarking for the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855, with an average score of 360,000.

That said, it’s likely the Xperia XZ4 will also launch with a Snapdragon 855, though the chip responsible for the result in question might had been overclocked for benchmarking purposes, or Sony might have come up with a way to get the most out of its hardware using software optimizations. Either way, we’re impressed. But we’d be more impressed if the company finds a way for production units to turn in similar results.
Based on what we already know, the Sony Xperia XZ4 will feature a notch-less screen with the tallest aspect ratio ever at 21:9, which, if accurate, would bring a cinematic feel to your viewing experience. There are also whispers of a triple-camera setup and an in-display fingerprint reader.
Sony is scheduled to make an appearance at CES 2019 in Las Vegas with an event set for January 7. It’s possible but not guaranteed that we’ll see the Xperia XZ4 there. Its predecessor, the Xperia XZ3, was announced at IFA 2018 in August last year.
