So far in 2014, we’ve seen mostly high-end devices from Sony, like the Xperia Z2. However if you were hoping for some low-mid ranged products from Sony, you might be interested to learn about an upcoming handset from Sony. The name and photo of the handset remains unknown, but based on the benchmarks, it has the model number D2403. From what we can tell, based on the benchmarks, this is not a high-end handset from Sony.
A previously unknown Sony Xperia handset has graced GFXBench’s benchmarking suite, leaving a trail of hardware specs. Code-named D2403, the device’s moniker reminds a lot of that of the Xperia M2(D2303/D2305/D2306), and that’s not even half of it. Before getting into the rest of the similarities, the still mysterious D2403 differs in one very obvious way: it’s got a 4.4-inch 540 x 960 pixel (qHD) display, in contrast to the 5-inch M2. That said, the D2403 appears to be powered a very similar hardware configuration, including a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon chip with an Adreno 305 GPU (likely the Snapdragon 400 MSM8926), 1GB of RAM, and an 8-megapixel rear shooter (0.3MP at the front). The only other clue we have is that the device that was tested seemingly sported 16GB of on-board storage, which is rather healthy in this class.
