While no details about the announcement and the availability of Sony Pikachu was known at this moment, Sony might probably announce the Pikachu with an official name at the Mobile World Congress (MWC). Reports have also indicated that the Pikachu might be the Sony G3112 which was leaked last month.
The Sony Xperia smartphones with model number G3121 and G3112 were spotted in the user-agent profile by the XperiaBlog. The documents for these devices had revealed that both would be powered by MediaTek MT6757 Helio P20 chipsets that would feature an octa-core processors measured at 2.3GHz. The chipset also combines a 2.3 GHz quad-core and 1.6 GHz quad-core which was coupled with Mali-T880 graphics.
The leaked documents had also revealed that Sony G3112 would feature a 1280×720 pixel display and the G3221 would rather come with a full HD 1080×1920 pixel screen display.
