Sony has been quite silent this year and we just found out the reason. Whilst others manufacturers were busy making official handsets, this manufacturer was neck-deep in the manufacturing of a new flagship smartphone called Sony Pikachu which just made an appearance over at GeekBench Benchmarking site.
We do not know if the smartphone would be called Pikachu when it finally goes official but it is worth nothing to mention that is hard not to think about Pokémon when the name Pikachu is mentioned. If the device goes official with this name, we doubt it would change a thing though as the name is quite cool.
The device comes in with specs that are usually associated with smartphones in both the mid-range spectrum and the flagship market as it feature a 5 inch HD screen which is some worth of a turn off, but the 21Mpix camera it features on the back panel which is capable of both Phase detection and Auto Focus seems pretty flagship to us.
Above the display, a 7Mpix sensor is fixed for all selfie and video calling needs as it accompanies the niche main camera and it would be running the Android Nougat operating system straight from the box. Under the hood is an octa-core MT6757 processor which would be running at a speed of 2.3GHz.
Also present on the system on chip is a Mali T880 MP2 GPU and 3GB of RAM. There is also an internal storage capacity of 32GB which would definitely be made expandable to additional memory via the inclusion of a microSD card slot.
