Sometimes a name can tell us a lot about an unannounced handset. That said, the Sony Pikachu smartphone is a massive mystery as it’s just shown up on GFXbench. We don’t know what this one will look like, but do know what it will sport under the hood.

The handset has appeared on GFXBench dubbed the Sony Pikachu and looks to be a mid-range device. The folks over at WinFuture.de caught this one and believe it could be the upcoming Xperia XA2. That particular handset has been making the rounds of late and could make a debut at MWC 2017 in a few short weeks. As for the Sony Pikachu smartphone, here is what you can expect.
