Google recently launched the much-awaited Android 8.0 Oreo with plenty of new features. Within days after the official launch, several manufacturers have been in the fray to integrate the new Android platform into their smartphones. The latest to the party is the Sony Xperia XZ1.

According to GFXBench, the rumored Sony Xperia XZ1 with model number Sony G8541 will be preloaded with Android 8.0 Oreo. Although we don’t have an estimated launch date, it looks like the phone will enter the market only after the launch of Google Pixel series in October. We don’t have any confirmation as to the phone surfaced on GFXBench is indeed that of Sony Xperia XZ1.

Expected to be powered by a 2.4GHz octa-core processor, the Sony Xperia XZ1 will be equipped with a 6.2-inch display, Adreno 540 graphics processor, 4GB RAM coupled with 128GB internal storage. However, the GFXBench specifications reveal the presence of 3.6GB RAM and 111GB storage capacity.

While the rear camera will feature 18MP sensor, the front-facing camera will be equipped with a 12MP sensor. The GFXBench results state that both the rear and front camera will provide an ability to capture 4K videos at 3840×2160 pixels. The phone will be the first smartphone to ship with Android 8.0 Oreo after Google Pixel series.

To recall, Google has already rolled out Android Oreo for Pixel and Nexus smartphones. If you have access to Google Pixel, you can straight away download the new Android platform.

In addition to Picture In Picture mode, the Android 8.0 Oreo will provide support for snooze notifications, refreshed settings and other related features. Moreover, the Oreo platform comes with plenty of new features, additions, improvements and bug fixes.
