In every CES we had seen some new and interesting innovations in the consumer technology, and in this coming 2018 there will be no difference. Sony, the Japanese company has sent out the media invitations for its CES press conference that is scheduled for January 8th, 2018. We can expect new products announcements under different classes like smart TVs, cameras, audio, and others from them.


The latest leaks suggest that the company is going to showcase their latest flagship smartphone at the CES 2018. The device will be powered by the all-new Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 SoC coupled with their own Adreno 640 GPU. It will come in 4GB and 6GB of RAM variants and packs 64GB/128GB of internal storage. It will be running on the brand new Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box. We assume this to be the rumoured as Sony H8266 smartphone.


The Sony H8266 is now listed on Geekbench with the Snapdragon 845 SoC and 4GB of RAM. It scored 2393 on single-core and 8300 on multi-core tests. Based on the rumours, this new Sony flagship smartphone will additionally feature 18:9 display. FYI, the Sony Xperia XZ Premium unveiled at the MWC 2018 is the first smartphone to feature the 10nm Snapdragon 835 SoC. It is also the first smartphone to come with a 4K HDR display.


While we expect the upcoming H8266 to be the successor to the Xperia XZ Premium, few leaks hint this to be Xperia XZ2. The Sony Xperia XZ1 was launched at the IFA 2017 conference held in Berlin. Apart from Sony, Samsung and other companies will also launch their new flagships for 2018 in there also.
