Firmware for the Sony Xperia J8010 Sphinx has been spotted on XperiFirm, a third-party repository for Xperia firmwares. If the name doesnt ring a bell, its one of two 5G Sonys that should be unveiled soon.
There was a second device too, J8210 Horus, which was listed as having a 16:9 1080p screen, but thats possibly a placeholder for the official values. Unconfirmed info suggests that this model will have a 6 OLED panel, down from the 6.5 screen of the Xperia 1.
The Sony Xperia Sphinx and Horus may be unveiled at IFA 2019, which starts September 6. Sony unveiled the Xperia XZ3 at last year’s event, but since both Sphinx and Horus are expected to have 5G modems, they are unlikely to be the “XZ4” (unless there’s an LTE version).
