A recent addition to GFX Bench’s database includes the “Google Nexus Foo,” which seems to be causing quite a few of us in the tech community to be scratching our heads today.
At first, you’d think the 10.3-inch (Full HD 1080 x 1920) device is a tablet, but then when you see it runs Android Wear (KKWT), you’ll start to get a bit confused. The device has no touchscreen, no accelerometer, no barometer, no GPS, no compass, no gyroscope, no light sensor, no NFC, or no proximity sensor — only Bluetooth and WiFi are included.
drawElements is a startup company that offers many GPU benchmarking and compiler tools, and it’s also the latest company to be scooped up by Google. While Google doesn’t really have much need for an individual benchmarking application, drawElements carved out a name for itself by offering a very close look at hardware compatibility and optimization. By joining a company like Google, there’s a pretty good chance they can use the tech to improve GPU compatibility in Android across different kinds of hardware.
Previously, we reported a few details about the rumored Samsung Galaxy Note 4 display, the expected release date as well as a few new features that it might come with. Today, the device appeared on the AnTuTu benchmark giving us a clear view of the device’s specs.
Two Samsung devices that appear to be the Galaxy Note 4 showed up in AnTuTu’s database earlier today indicating that the device will come in two variants, one carrying the model number SM-N910S has a quad-core Snapdragon 805 CPU with an Adreno 420 graphics chip, and another one carrying the model number SM-N910C has an 8-core Exynos processor with an ARM Mali-T760 GPU.
A series of leaks have appeared online regarding the Galaxy S5 Mini, including not only pictures, but also Antutu benchmark results as well as specs.
As you’ll see in the benchmark screenshots, the device packs the Samsung Exynos 3 Quad (Exynos 3470) SoC clocked to 1.4GHz. The GPU is a Quad-core Mali-400 MP4 clocked at 450MHz, there’s 1.5GB RAM, 16GB expandable memory, an 8MP main camera and a 2.1MP front shooter. Both cameras can shoot up to Full HD 1080p video. The screen is 4.5-inches and is a 720p Super AMOLED display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3, and the device features a fingerprint scanner and heart rate scanner.
Huawei’s flagship device for 2014, code named “Mulan,” has shown up in the AnTuTu benchmark database. We’re getting a pretty good look at what’s going to power the device, and it looks like it’s going to be a pretty powerful phone. The benchmark confirms an octa-core Kirin processor, 3 GB of RAM, and a 4.9-inch 1080p screen, which is definitely on the same level as the devices that are currently being released.
A GFX benchmark for a new Sony device has shown up in the wild. The device has a model number of D2403 and looks like it’ll be a pretty solid mid-range offering in Sony’s Xperia lineup. We’re seeing a quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 1 GB of RAM, an 8 megapixel rear camera, and a 4.4 inch qHD screen. Best of all, it looks like the phone will have 16 GB of internal storage, which is a rarity for budget devices.
This one won’t knock off Sony’s high end flagships, but for people looking to save a few bucks, keep an eye out for this one to become official.

This should give you a good, confident feeling regarding the specifications of the LG G3. This AnTuTu benchmark leaked earlier this morning. It does not show any sort of performance figures, but it certainly shows us some specifications. We will go down the list in order.
No surprise here that LG will be utilizing Android 4.4 at the center of its own user interface. You can see LG has added a multitasking button rather than oddly omitting like last year. Next up is the processing for this beast. It is quad-core and has an Adreno 330 GPU, but we just do not know whether or not Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 801 or 805 is here. The display, as we have heard many times before, will have QHD resolution (2560×1440) and the full size of the leaked screenshot above reflects that. Camera? 13MP and it presumably keeps the G2′s optical image stabilization technology.

We’ve heard quite a bit about the Galaxy S 5 Active, but we’re finally getting a benchmark to confirm some of the specs. Like the S 4 Active, this device will share many specs with the original Galaxy S 5. There’s a 5.1, 1080p screen on board, as well as a 16 megapixel camera, but the processor will see a slight downgrade to a Snapdragon 800 instead of the 801 CPU found on the GS5. Not a huge difference, but it’s there.
There’s also 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage space, and Android 4.4.2 on board. The benchmark unfortunately can’t confirm just how waterproof and dust-resistant this device is, but considering the normal Galaxy S 5 boasts a bit of water resistance, it shouldn’t be a surprise to see Samsung make this thing extremely waterproof. An announcement shouldn’t be too far off.

LG’s new G Pad line of three tablets (7, 8 and 10.1 inches respectively) have officially been outed, but individual specs have not yet been released — until now, at least for the G Pad 7, that is.
According to a recent AnTuTu benchmark for the device, it’ll come with a quad-core Snapdragon 400 CPU at 1.2GHz, 1 GB RAM, 8 GB internal storage, a 1.3 MP front shooter and a 3.2 MP main camera. The screen, of course, measures at 7-inches and display resolution is 1280 x 800.
A GFX benchmark for a Samsung SM-G800H has surfaced, confirming what will probably end up being the Galaxy S 5 Mini. However, instead of the 4.5-inch screen we were originally anticipating, this benchmark shows a device with a 4.8-inch display. Now, that is technically “mini” compared to the Galaxy S 5, but 4.8 inches isn’t small by any stretch. It’s much bigger than the 4.3-inch screen on the S 4 Mini and the same size as Samsung’s older Galaxy S III. Bigger phones clearly have their place in the market, but Samsung is completely missing the point of offering a mini device.
