Sony already testing smartphones running Android O

It’s looking like Sony could be one of the first companies to release an Android O smartphone. On Wednesday, the folks over at Phandroid uncovered two user agent profiles, which show that the firm is secretly working on a pair of handsets running the latest flavor of the open-source operating system.

Much to our dismay, the documentation doesn’t reveal a great deal about the devices. All we know is that they’re being referred to internally as G8341 and G8342, and are being tested with Full HD (1,920 x 1,080 pixels) displays — but that could easily change between now and when they’re announced.

Could they be on display at IFA 2017?

Seeing as the phones have only just surfaced and are currently undergoing testing, we think Sony’s planning to take the wraps off them at the IFA trade show in September. We should stress, however, that we don’t have any evidence to support our claim — it’s merely a guess — so take it with a grain of salt.
