A mysterious Sony device bearing model number Sony 78YB16RC98PW62B1 has been tested on Geekbench.

The device is believed to be Sony's next generation Xperia flagship smartphone widely known as Xperia Z4.

As the Geekbench database suggests, Xperia Z4 will run Google's latest Android Lollipop iteration with version 5.0.2. It will use Qualcomm's MSM8994 chip, which is none other than the Snapdragon 810 chip with eight cores CPU offering 64-bit support. The listing suggests the use of 3GB memory. The new Xperia model scored 1411 points in single-core and 3576 for multi-score.

Qualcomm has already confirmed, earlier this month, new devices based on Snapdragon 810 including LG G Flex 2, Xiaomi Mi Note with more devices to follow soon.

Sony has also announced that the new Snapdragon chipset will power its upcoming flagship smartphone, something we have already heard through rumours.

"Whether it's long-lasting battery life, watching the latest movies or enjoying music in Hi-Res Audio quality, our customers are increasingly demanding more from their Xperia device to deliver the latest content and entertainment experiences.

"We're excited about the new capabilities of the Snapdragon 810 processor and are looking forward to working with Qualcomm Technologies as we bring new Xperia products to consumers later this year," said Gen Tsuchikawa, senior vice president and chief strategy officer, Sony Mobile.

In the MWC event 2015 there will be no press conference or, even live stream by Sony. Instead, on 2 March, there will be a welcome greeting to open the booth for media present at MWC. The company is planning a summer release for the Xperia smartphone.
