Sony’s latest mid-range smartphone with the model number G3116, or the Xperia XA1 as we know it, paid a visit to the Geekbench benchmarking site revealing its single-core and multi-core scores.
As you can see from the above image, the Xperia XA1 clocked in 858 points for the single-core test whereas it scored 3577 points in the multi-core test. For the unaware, the Geekbench test estimates how quickly a chipset performs certain tasks or collocations. The higher the score, the better the chipset’s performance is.
To give you a fair idea, the Samsung Galaxy S7 still tops the Geekbench listing with 1789 points (single-core). In comparison, the Sony Xperia XA1 scored nearly half of what the Galaxy S7 scored which is pretty decent for a mid-range smartphone, but it definitely could have been better if it had scored more. Let’s not forget, these number may or may not translate to the real world performance accurately.
The Sony Xperia XA1 features a 5.0-inch HD display, MediaTek MT6757 Helio P20 SoC, Mali-T880MP2, 23MP f/2.0 rear camera, and 8MP f/2.0 front-facing camera. It runs Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box and packs a 2300mAh battery.
