Sony Xperia ZU benchmark causes trouser tents

Sony Xperia ZU benchmark causes trouser tentsWe recently learned that the rumoured Sony Togari phablet will hit shelves as the Sony Xperia ZU, while the leaked spec sheet had us reaching for the tissues (because we were crying, you dirty rotter).

Some purported Sony Xperia ZU benchmarking suggests we’re right to expect an absolute beast of a phone.

A screenshot over on Esato shows a record-breaking AnTuTu score of 32,173. That’s even higher than the rumoured Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 variant of the Samsung Galaxy S4.

Of course, it’s worth noting that benchmarks can be faked, and don’t necessarily give an indication of real-world performance.

However, all signs at this stage suggest the Sony Xperia ZU will smack its flagship peers in the face.

Proposed Sony Xperia ZU specs include a 6.44in 1080p display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.2GHz, 2GB of RAM, 16GB storage (with microSD, phew!), an 8MP rear camera, and Jelly Bean Android 4.2.2.

The only sliiiight disappointment is the 3,000mAh battery, which is a hundred units less than the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, but should – fingers crossed – see you comfortably through the day (depending on your smartphone habits).

The Sony Xperia ZU launch is expected to go down on June 25, which is… one week from today. Excited?

For reasons unknown even to me, I'm not.

while i've less than 0 interest in a phone this large, it's nice to see that sony seem to be the first ones to actually be ahead of the curve with the CPU tech for once - it's one of the things that's been holding them back the past few years, but this year they seem pretty on the ball.
