We have some pretty exciting news today about a supercharged HTC phone in the pipeline that could possibly be a successor to the HTC Rezound. Even better is that this new HTC phone has been put through a series of GL Benchmark tests and achieved remarkable results with high scores not seen before. This could be a smartphone to keep a serious eye on.
Back in April we gave readers some news from a leaked Verizon roadmap and one of the snippets of information concerned what was described as an upcoming HTC flagship phone as competition for the successful Samsung Galaxy Note. This was noted to be due in the fall on Verizon and the latest details on the phone that has been benchmarked certainly seem as though it could be this mystery HTC flagship smartphone.
The upcoming HTC superphone looked likely to have a quad-core Krait processor, Adreno graphics, whopping 5-inch 1080p HD display, a Scribe Pen and would feature HTC Sense 5.0. The latest news on this from BGR, sourced from Droid-Life fills us in with more information though and tells us there will be Adreno 320 graphics, that it will run on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and will be a 4G LTE-equipped handset. Major news concerns the processor, which we’re now informed is no usual Snapdragon S4 processor but will be a supercharged 1.5GHz MSM8960T chipset.
These specs have led to GL benchmark tests with exceptional results. Comparing them to the HTC One X as a guide we can tell you that the upcoming HTC superphone achieved 121.1 fps on Egypt Offscreen as opposed to 64.8 fps for the HTC One X. The new phone also achieved 110.5 fps on Egypt Pro as opposed to 94.8 fps for the One X, so as you can see these results are something to get excited about!
One thing making life more difficult at the moment is this promising HTC phone has no name yet and is merely codenamed ‘dlx.’ However as its model number is HTC6435 and as the HTC Rezound’s model number is HTC6425, it seems very likely that the new superphone will be a successor to the Rezound although the specs of the new phone will blow those of the Rezound and other phones out of the water.
We’ll certainly be keeping readers informed about this upcoming supercharged HTC superphone and we feel from what we know so far that many people will want to hear more. What are your thoughts on this new HTC phone? From the benchmark scores alone are you already thinking this could be your next smartphone choice? Let us know with your comments.
