Whether intentional or not, LG is ending up with a lot of rumors and leaks floating around on the Internet about their next flagship device, the LG G3. Yesterday we learned that an announcement may come as early as July or even late June as the company tries to keep pace with other manufacturers releasing new flagship devices this year. Today some AnTuTu benchmark data has surfaced for a couple LG devices, at least one of which comes with the LG G3 model name.
Last year HTC launched two flagship devices; the HTC One, and the HTC Butterfly. Since HTC typically launches at least two flagship phones per year, if not more, it would make sense to see a follow-up to 2013′s HTC Butterfly, and if the latest AnTuTu benchmark is any indication, we’ll definitely see one later this year. » Read the rest
We’ve been excited to see NVIDIA’s 64-bit Tegra K1 processor in action ever since it was announced back in January, but benchmarks have been scarce and it’s obviously not in any devices just yet. Fortunately for our curiosity, an AnTuTu benchmark for a device with the 64-bit K1 processor has shown up, and it looks every bit as impressive as NVIDIA made it out to be two months ago.
The 64-bit chip showed up with a benchmark score of 43617, which is about 10k points higher than the Snapdragon 800 found in the current crop of flagship devices, and a few thousand points ahead of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 805 and 801 chips. In certain CPU tests, the K1 faltered a bit compared to quad-core processors, but since it’s only a dual-core CPU, it makes sense. However, each of those cores still outperforms other quad-core processors, and the RAM test for the K1 was insanely high, so multitasking will be a great selling point for devices with this chip. » Read the rest
We have been writing a lot about Sony’s upcoming “Sirius” (D6503) phone, but another device with the model D6603 has surfaced via AnTuTu Benchmarks.
According to the tests, the phone will pack a Qualcomm MSM8974AB chipset as well as a 2.3GHz quad-core processor, Adreno 330 graphics, a 1080p display, a 20.7MP rear shooter, 16GB internal storage, and 2GB RAM.
NVIDIA’s upcoming Tegra K1 stole the show last week at CES in Last Vegas, and we’re now finally getting to see some benchmark numbers for the chip. Despite the processor being in its early stages, the results are looking up.
MyDrivers.com (above) benchmarked the chip using GFXBench 2.7— here are the results:
-60 fps (beating both new iPads by more than 1/2 their scores)
-Beat the Galaxy Note 3 (Snapdragon 800) and Toshiba eXcite Pro (Tegra 4)
-Beat full-sized laptops running on Intel’s Haswell processors (with Intel HD 4400 and 4200 GPU)
Today’s been a Nexus 5 day. First, we got to see some really cool leaked photos of the upcoming device, and now the Nexus 5 has been spotted on the GFXBench benchmark site. It seems like the codename of the phone is the LG Hammerhead. From the information, we can tell that it has an HD 1080p display and a 2.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor. In addition, the device runs KitKat 4.4.
That’s not it. Two unannounced devices, LG-D820_S and LG-D820_C have received WiFi Certification. These are most likely two different versions of the Nexus 5, as previous leaks have shown. These two devices could vary by storage capacity, or LTE/HSPA+. We’ll have to wait and see, but it’s getting exciting to see these leaks.
AnTuTu benchmark, one of the most popular benchmarking applications for Android devices, has gotten a major upgrade to version 4.0. The new version brings a few extra features, most notable of which is a redesigned interface that just looks great. It’s also sporting a new benchmarking algorithm that’s supposed to better support newer devices; IE, crazy-fast phones with multi-core processors. Many older benchmarking apps would sometimes only benchmark 1 or 2 processing cores, so keeping those algorithms up to date is necessary. There’s also a new benchmark you can test called the “User Experience” benchmark. I’m not entirely sure what that measures, as it scored my Galaxy S 4 well below every other phone on the results, including the reference Galaxy S 4 and the Galaxy S II.
Quirky benchmarks aside, the update is a very welcome upgrade, and like always, it’s free. Hit the link below to get your hands on it. And just for fun, why not post some benchmark results in the comments?
Although Lenovo has put some together some impressive flagship devices, they’ve never had much luck with them in the US. That may change with the newest device they’re readying to launch, which according to some newly leaked benchmarks, will run the latest version of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processor.
The new device, codenamed the X910, scored 29231 points on an AnTuTu benchmark with a processor running at about 2.1 – 2.2 GHz, which is about what we see from Snapdragon 800 devices. It’s also running Android 4.2.2, but there’s not much else in the way of details outside of that, unfortunately. Still, maybe going with a more well-known processor like Qualcomm’s Snapdragon line can help them get more western penetration than Intel’s great, but quiet, Clover Trail processors did.

HTC may not be the only Android smartphone manufacturer looking at a mid-year update of their flagship device to take advantage of Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 800 processor if a recently discovered AnTuTu benchmark scored is to be believed. The AnTuTu entry is listed as a GT-I9506 variant of the Samsung Galaxy S 4 and is supposedly similar to the LTE-A version, but intended for the global market.
The benchmark shows a device running a Snapdragon 800 at 2.3GHz with an Adreno 330 GPU. The score of 31123 is consistent with the Snapdragon 800. If a new, faster version of the Galaxy S 4 is on its way, it could be announced at IFA 2013 on September 3rd in Berlin. At the same time, this could just be a fake as AnTuTu benchmarks are not that difficult to manipulate.
A new Toshiba tablet has popped up in benchmarks recently, and while it isn’t a high-spec’ed tablet, it could definitely make some waves in the 7-inch category. The benchmarks show the tablet sporting a mediocre 1024 x 600 resolution screen powered by a 1.6 GHz processor with an undisclosed amount of cores and a Mali-400 GPU. It’s going to be a 7-inch tablet, so uber-high resolutions aren’t necessarily a given, but it looks like Toshiba has put just enough processing power to make that type of screen work. It’s going to be running Android 4.2.2 out of the box, but no word on if that will be stock Android or a skinned version.
AnTuTu benchmarks give the device a score of 17,639, which is respectable for an entry level device. If Toshiba can price this right, they might just have a hit on their hands, especially as we get closer to the holiday season. We’ll be sure to let you know as soon as anything else becomes official.
