drawElements

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. » Read the rest

huawei mulan benchmark

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. » Read the rest

Sony D2403 pops up in benchmarks, looks to be entry-level device with a high amount of internal storage

xperia d2403 benchmark

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.

LG G3 benchmark leaks but does not show any performance figures

lg_g3_antutu_benchmark_evleaks

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.

Galaxy S 5 Active benchmark confirms Snapdragon 800 and a 5.1-inch 1080p display

S5 ACtive

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.

Antutu G Pad 7

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.

Galaxy S 5 Mini leaks with a not-so-mini 4.8 inch screen

by Jared Peters on
tagged , ,

galaxy_s5_mini_mn

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. » Read the rest

Today some AnTuTu benchmark data has surfaced for a couple LG devices, at least one of which comes with the LG G3 model name.
