With the frenzy of new devices released this spring, smartphone buyers are looking forward now to the fall season to see what manufacturers will be bringing to market. One new bit of hardware garnering lots of attention is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 processor which is expected to become the new top end. A new benchmark was spotted that seems to show a Qualcomm 800 running on Android 4.2.2.
Japanese site Ringer’s Blue Men has published what purports to be an AnTuTu benchmark for the unannounced Pantech IM-A880 smartphone. The results show a device running at 1958 – 2150 MHz, which seems to be consistent with Snapdragon 800 speeds. The top score of 30133 surpasses both the Exynos Octa 5 and the Snapdragon 600. It is not much of an improvement, about a 10% gain compared to the Exynos chip, but that should still be noticeable for users.
