Two new Sony phones leaked a few weeks ago. The devices that appeared during last month with codenames Sony G3221 and Sony G3112. The G3221 is the premium version while the G3112 is the cheaper low-end model. The benchmarking site GFXBench featured today an unknown Sony phone named as Sony Pikachu, and it seems to be the Sony G3112.
The Sony Pikachu is a 5-inch mobile handset that sports an HD touchscreen display and a 21MP primary camera for shooting photos at a maximum resolution of 5520 x 4160 and recording FHD videos at 1920 x 1088 pixels. What the 5-inch Sony Pikachu phone reserves for selfie addicts is an 8MP camera for snapping selfies at a maximum resolution of 3264 x 2448 pixels and recording videos at 1088 pixels.
What makes me believe that the handset featured on the benchmarking site matches with the previously leaked Sony G3112 is its featured mobile processor. According to the former report, Sony G3112 was a low-end phone featuring a 720p display that runs on the MediaTek Helio P10 processor. These specs are found on the Sony Pikachu, where the Helio P10 is backed by 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. On top of those, Sony Pikachu adds the Android 7.0 Nougat upgrade.
The other version, the Sony G3221 which remains to be in the shade since January, is rumored to be running the MediaTek Helio P20 chipset with 4GB of RAM, feature 64GB of storage, Android 7, and sport a 23MP camera on the rear and 16MP selfie-snapper on the front. The G3221 also has a better screen resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, and it might be larger than 5-inch.
Sony Pikachu might not be the real name of the phone, but you won’t have to wait for too long to know its correct name. Sony G3221 and G3112 are expected to have their debut two weeks from now in Barcelona during the MWC show.
