Highlights

    • Sony may soon launch a dual camera smartphone
    • It will run Google’s Android 8.0 Oreo
    • It may not sport a full-screen (bezel-less) 18:9 display

Smartphones with dual camera setup have become a trend. Almost every smartphone manufacturer is releasing phones with this feature. However, there are a few who have stayed away from this like – Google and Sony. Google has decided to stick to a single rear camera even on its latest Pixel 2 XL smartphone that goes on sale in India today. But Sony may not resist the temptation for too long, it seems.

Today, a new Sony smartphone with a dual camera setup has shown up on the benchmarking website GFXBench. Interestingly, the device sports a front dual camera setup instead of on the rear. The smartphone comes with a model number – Xperia H3212 Avenger. If the listing is deemed to be true, this would be the company’s first smartphone with dual cameras.

As per the listing, the device will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 chipset. It has 4GB of RAM along with 32GB of internal storage. It will run Google’s Android 8.0 Oreo OS out-of-the-box. As for the camera, the device will feature a 21-megapixel sensor with 4K video capabilities at the back. On the front, it will feature a 16-megapixel + 8-megapixel dual camera setup, again with 4K video recording capabilities for selfie lovers.

Additionally, the listing mentions that the smartphone will sport a 6-inch full HD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. If that’s the case, this may not sport a full-screen (bezel-less) display with 18:9 aspect ratio. So this may not be the rumoured first full-display phone from Sony. Looks like Sony is adopting one trendy feature at a time, rather than all at once. We will keep you posted when we have any further update on either of the smartphones.
