Considering all the other cool kids on the block are developing refreshed versions of their flagship phones with Snapdragon 800 processors, it’s only fitting that Sony gets in on the party as well. In a series of tweets by notorious info leaker Eldar Murtazin, a test unit of the new Xperia Z variant with the faster processor can only be described as “really fast”. Additionally, the same test unit featured an even sweeter display than the original. In a follow-up tweet, Murtazin describes the refreshed unit as having an LCD3 screen similar to the HTC One smartphone, though he doesn’t believe the same display will make it to the production models.
Considering Sony is expected to utilize the same chipset in other upcoming flagships like its quietly-hyped Xperia ZU smartphone, we’re going to go ahead and take this leaked information as true. Hopefully it won’t be too long of a wait before the refreshed device hits the Android world.
