Pictures of Lenovo’s latest flagship device pop up showing a Snapdragon 800 CPU inside

Lenovo

Just a few days ago we saw a benchmark that suggested Lenovo was going to be releasing a flagship device with a Snapdragon 800 processor on board like every other Android manufacturer on the planet. Today we’re seeing some pictures of the rumored device that do confirm the processor specs as well as a few other details about the device.

It does have a Snapdragon processor, complete with Adreno 330 GPU, so this is bound to be one powerful device. It also sports a full HD, 1080p display, which makes it a comparable device to most other high-end phones on the market today. The screen appears to be about 5 inches, and it will be a dual-sim device. Unfortunately, that means the device will probably only ever hit shelves in China, but depending on how well it sells, it’s always possible to see Lenovo put its top-end device in other markets.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 to dominate the market “in the coming months”

If you’re the proud owner of the Samsung Galaxy S4 or HTC One, you’re running the latest and greatest quad-core processor from Qualcomm. They’ve been a staple in the mobile market as of late, and are leading the charge on top-tier smartphones, and in the 4G LTE market as well. Today we had a moment to talk with Qualcomm about their upcoming tech following this weeks earnings report, and learned some exciting news about their next chip, the Snapdragon 800.

800-540x309

We already know the super impressive 2.3 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 mobile processor is coming extremely soon, but we weren’t sure who all would be on board. The flagship LG G2 coming in August has been confirmed to run the Snapdragon 800, as did Sony with their new Xperia Z Ultra. With Quick Charge 2.0, extremely fast speeds, battery efficiency, and of course global 4G LTE (and 4G LTE-Advanced) support, we can see why so many are on board.

If you had any doubt that the next wave of flagship smartphone wouldn’t be powered by Qualcomm, let this quote we have below ease your mind. While speaking to Murthy Renduchintala, EVP of Qualcomm Technologies, he had this to say about the coming months and what to expect.

Virtually every global OEM with a premium-tier smartphone is designing it with a Snapdragon 800, which we’ll see in the coming months.”

He then went on to mention that while we can expect to see flagship smartphone running the 800 from virtually everyone, there’s a few who make their own processor architectures that won’t be on board. One that comes to mind is Samsung, as they have their Exynos chipset, but clearly they’ve already been using the Snapdragon 600 on their flagship GS4, and we’re assuming the 800 will be in their Note III or other upcoming devices.

It’s pretty exciting to know that over the next few months we’ll be seeing a huge influx of impressive smartphones all running one of the most powerful smartphone processors on the planet. We already knew it was a fast processor from our hands-on with the Snapdragon 800, so now it will be up to OEMs to offer a differentiated experience from the competition to get the consumers dollar.

qualcomm-rf360-fes-540

Things like the stellar build quality and front facing speakers surely set the HTC One apart, and we’re hoping similar advances are coming soon with all these top-tier smartphones that are in the works. In closing Qualcomm mentioned we can expect to see front-end support for their RF360 platform, which offers global 2G/3G/4GLTE support under one roof. Which means we can start to see more of this one device works on all carriers approach that has been making the rounds as of late.

The second half of 2013 will be an exciting one. With flagship smartphones, top-tier tablets, and competition from NVIDIA with their Tegra 4 we’re excited for it all. Stay tuned!

Lenovo K910 image leak further details a Snapdragon 800 smartphone

Lenovo has the K900 smartphone which is sporting a 5.5-inch display and Intel processor, however it is looking like the K910 will be shifting from Intel. A recent benchmark leak pointed towards the Lenovo K910 as having a 2.1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. And just to make mention, those benchmarks were showing results that were just shy of 30,000.

03-17-59-85

Specifically, they were sitting at 29,231. But for now we can put that piece to the side because it is looking like some images of the Lenovo K910 have recently leaked. The images are coming by way of the Chinese language Lenovo Mobile forums and have the handset listed as being either the K910 or the K6. These images are showing a look at the front and back as well as the side.

Perhaps more important though, there are some specs being confirmed by way of the display. For example, the details show this handset as having an Snapdragon 800 MSM8974 with Adreno 330 graphics. And while we have yet to see the size of the display, the resolution has been pegged at 1920 x 1080.

03-23-25-100
03-17-57-72
03-23-51-15

Simply put, assuming these specs hold accurate — it looks like Lenovo is getting ready to step up in the mobile world. Of course, that goes along with talk we heard coming from Lenovo back in June. At that time Lenovo had mentioned a goal of selling 50 million mobile phones before the end of the fiscal year.

Just for the record, that ends time is not until March 2014. That all being said, while the Lenovo K910 certainly seems like it will be a powerhouse, it is probably not a handset that will see a widespread release outside of China. For now though, we have these images and looking forward we wouldn’t be surprised if there were more leaks.

Lenovo’s first Snapdragon 800 phone leaked as the K6 or X910

Lenovo's first Snapdragon 800 phone leaked as the K6 or X910

Despite the fact that Lenovo hasn’t yet embraced the Snapdragon 600 SoC, it looks like the Chinese company’s finally giving Qualcomm a proper chance with the latter’s more powerful Snapdragon 800. Starting yesterday, several cheeky images of an unannounced dual-SIM Android phone — codenamed K6 or X910 — popped up in Lenovo’s official Chinese forum. The photo after the break shows AnTuTu indicating the presence of the relatively new MSM8974 chip (with Adreno 330 GPU) plus a 1,920 x 1,080 display (which looks like a 5-inch panel to us); so unless the app made a mistake, what we have here could be Lenovo’s upcoming flagship device.

While not much else has been said about the phone, one of the leaksters described it as thin and light, and that it felt good in hand. But to be honest, we’re not too thrilled with the design ID here, especially with that K860-inspired back. What’s interesting, though, is that according to a source of ours, the “X” in X910 may be a wildcard that depends on the kind of deal Lenovo made with Qualcomm. At this point, we’ve been told to assume it’ll eventually become the K910, which would, sadly, make this phone an uglier successor to the Intel-powered K900. Either way, chances are we won’t be seeing many of these outside China, anyway.

Qualcomm Q3 2013 earnings show record numbers, again

If you’re the proud owner of almost any flagship smartphone from the past year, it’s likely running a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor under that HD display. Samsung and their Galaxy S3 and S4, the HTC One, LG’s Nexus 4 and many other devices are all powered by Qualcomm, which is one of many reasons they’ve (yet again) had record sales and revenue for the Q3 earnings report this year.

snapdragon-540x382

Qualcomm is currently finishing their 3rd quarter, as they aren’t on the same schedule as many, and their earnings report today is showing some extremely strong numbers throughout. How strong do you ask? Their overall revenue was up 35% year-over-year, with the company racking in roughly $6.24 billion (with a B) in revenue.

Being at the top of most smartphone manufacturers list as of late, Qualcomm is making a killing off of their Snapdragon processors, and that isn’t just from Android either. While going through some numbers the folks from Qually confirmed they sold roughly 172 million MSM Snapdragon chips, which was up 22% from last year. Thanks to a huge adoption by consumers of smartphones, these numbers are likely to only keep growing.

Screen Shot 2013-07-24 at 2.30.00 PM

To sum things up, thanks to a strong quarter from mobile computing and the Snapdragon processor Qualcomm had another record quarter topping last quarter. They confirmed 3G/4G sales were extremely strong, and more than $2 billion of capital was returned to stockholders in Q3. That $6.24 billion in revenue now brings their cash on-hand sitting in the bank, at just over $30.4 billion.

When more devices start arriving with the Snapdragon 600, the upcoming Snapdragon 800, as well as all those Motorola DROID and Moto X smartphones with the Snapdragon S4 Pro, things are only going to continue to climb. Qualcomm’s on track for another strong Q4 with estimates suggesting they’ll have the same 35% increase from Q4 2012. Not bad guys, not bad at all!

Benchmarks for new Lenovo smartphone leak showing a Snapdragon 800 CPU on board

lenovo-logo

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.

New Mediatek MT6592 octa chip could rival Snapdragon 800

mediatek_mt6592_octa_antutu_score

An AnTuTu benchmark score was recently discovered for a new chip that Mediatek is working on. The MT6592 is an octa-core processor running eight Cortex A7 chips. Each of the A7 chips can run up at up to 2GHz, though for the AnTuTu tests they were only pushed to 1.7 GHz. Sources indicate Mediatek has done some optimization on the ARM chips to improve their power efficiency. The goal appears to be to beat Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 chip in terms of both processing speed and energy efficiency.

According to the AnTuTu benchmark, the new MT6592 clocked in with a score of 29600, beating the Snapdragon 800, although we do not know whether the other hardware was the same. So there could be a little gamesmanship going on. Sources also indicate the Mali gpu chips that the MT6952 using are quad-core.

As powerful as the new chip could be, it may not be coming to U.S. or North American markets. Instead, the MT6952 will likely be used by Chinese manufacturers to produce “white box” smartphones and tablets that are relatively cheap for the Chinese market. That could still put pressure on other chip manufacturers in terms of price in other markets though.

The company image will be getting a make-over soon as they release the upcoming 8 core Mediatek MT6592 processor. This chip is reportedly going to be ready by to be tested by various manufacturers by the end of this month. By the end of this year it is expected to be used in various devices.

mediatek

One particular manufacturer that might be coming up with a device using this chip is Sony. The company has already used a Mediatek chip before with their Sony Xperia C model so it’s possible they will be using it again. It is the Xiaocai Edge however that is expected to be the one of the firsts model to be released in the market using this chip which is expected to arrive at the end of this year.

What makes the MT6592 octa-core system-on-chip impressive is that its AnTuTu benchmark score appears to have beaten the Snapdragon 800. The MT6592 uses eight Cortex A7 chips each capable of running at 2 GHz however for the test they were only pushed up to 1.7 GHz. Some sources say that Mediatek made some enhancements to the chip to improve its power efficiency thus beating the Snapdragon 800 in terms of processing speed and energy efficiency during the test.

The AnTuTu benchmark score of the MT6592 is 29,600 which beat that of the Snapdragon 800. While we don’t know if other hardware components contributed to this high score it is still a pretty impressive result.

Technical Specifications

  • 8 Cortex A7 cores
  • clock speed of up to 2GHz
  • 28 nanometer technology
  • Power VR SGX544MP GPU

As impressive as this chip may be it might not be coming to the U.S. market. Reports indicate that this chip will be used in the Chinese market to create low cost yet high performance smartphones and tablets.

AnTuTu benchmark allegedly shows Samsung Galaxy S 4 with Snapdragon 800

samsung_galaxy_s_4_snapdragon_800_antutu_benchmark_rumor

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.

Samsung Galaxy S4 (GT-i9506) Spotted With Snapdragon 800 Processor

Samsung might not be working yet on a successor to the Galaxy S4 but the company is evolving it to accommodate the latest technology.  You see, when this flagship model was released the Snapdragon 600 processor was the best in the market. Samsung then released the S4 using their own Exynos processor and the Snapdragon 600 processor.

samsung galaxy s4

Now that Qualcomm has been mass producing the Snapdragon 800 processor Samsung is said to be coming up with an S4 variant using this powerful processor for the international market.

A leaked benchmark test shows a device called the GT-i9506 which could very well be headed to the international market. The Galaxy S4 that uses a Snapdragon 600 processor has an international name of GT-i9505.

The result of the AnTuTu benchmark test is as follows.

  • Samsung GT-I9506
  • Snapdragon 800 2.3Ghz Quad-Core
  • Measurement Locale: South Korea
  • Overall score: 31123
  • Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean

This isn’t a surprise as in Samsung’s home market, South Korea, an S4 variant that comes with LTE-Advanced support already uses the Snapdragon 800 processor.

Samsung is reportedly going to announce this device along with the Galaxy Note III this coming September 3 in Berlin ahead of IFA.

This upcoming device might disappoint current S4 owners however this is the company’s strategy to adapt to new technology. Its competition such as LG and Sony are ready to roll out devices using Snapdragon 800 processors this year they really have to be competitive.

Here’s the main difference between a Snapdragon 800 compared to a Snapdragon 600.

Clock Speed

  • 800 : 2.3 GHz
  • 600 : 1.9 GHz

GPU

  • 800: Adreno 330
  • 600: Adreno 320

Oppo Find 5 TD Gets Upgraded, Now Sports 1.7 GHz Snapdragon 600

The Oppo Find 5 TD which works on China Mobile’s TD-SCDMA 3G network just got its hardware upgraded and now uses a 1.7 GHz Snapdragon 600. Previously this device used   Snapdragon S4 Pro with a quad-core 1.5 GHz Krait processor. Even with the upgraded processor the cost of the device still remains the same.

oppo find 5

The device now has four cores on the upgraded Krait 300 architecture. While it still uses the same Adreno 320 GPU, its Arithmetic Logic Units (ALU) has been increased from 64 to 96. This gives it a considerable boost in performance.

The Snapdragon 600 processor has an official clock speed of 1.9 GHz but the company seems to be under powering it to ensure that battery performance will not suffer. They could have  gotten a larger battery capacity but then the overall design of the device might change since a bigger battery will mean a bigger smartphone.

LG G2 benchmarks show a speedy Snapdragon 800 quad-core

LG has already confirmed their next-gen flagship smartphone will be powered by the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor, and now we might finally be seeing our first device benchmarks. Rumored to be called the LG G2, a device listed as the LG-F320 has been spotted running a few benchmarks complete with the Snapdragon 800, and scores quite high in the popular AnTuTu benchmark.

At this point we’re pretty much sure that LG’s August 7th event will be for their new flagship smartphone to take on the Galaxy Note III, new iPhone, and anything else coming soon from Motorola. Rumors have pointed to the new Optimus G2, and we’ve even seen a few hardware pictures leak of said device as well.

With a 5.5-inch 1080p display, Qualcomm’s 2.3 GHz quad-core under the hood, backside touch controls, and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean this is a hotly anticipated device. While we can’t be certain the benchmark result below is the new G2, it is certainly a new LG smartphone that will be plenty fast. Maybe this will also be the Nexus 5? We’ll see.

LG-F320-benchmark

Our own results with the Snapdragon 800 had us coming away quite impressed, not to mention the recently announced Galaxy S 4 LTE-Advanced with its Snapdragon scored nearly 32,000 in AnTuTu. We’ve also seen Sony’s new Xperia Z Ultra packing the same processor, and surely the second half of 2013 will be filled with high-powered quad-core smartphones.

Until we gather more details we’re just left wondering what exactly this benchmark result is, and they can also be faked, but it’s already confirmed LG’s next phone will have the 800. So now all we need to know is what, when, and where can we buy one. We’ll be live on August 7th for all the LG details too, so stick around.

Mysterious LG-F320 Benchmark Reveals a Fast Snapdragon 800

As the competition for the best performing smartphone heats up, it seems that LG does not want to be left behind. Benchmark results spotted on AnTuTu Benchmark test reveal it is developing a mysterious Snapdragon 800 powered device only known to have an LG-F320 model number.

LG-F320 Benchmark Results

The Benchmark test results shows that the device was tested in LG’s home country of South Korea and it clocked a 2.3 GHz speed and more than 32,000 points.  Based on this information, there are peculations doing rounds on the internet that this could either be the next Nexus 5 phone from LG or it could be an LG Optimus G2, the company’s next flagship smartphone.  LG has already confirmed that their next flagship phone will have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC and from the tests posted online, there is a high chance this may be it.

LG has a planned event on August 7th and it is anticipated that it will launch their new flagship smartphone to take on the current market leaders including HTC One, Samsung Galaxy S4, Sony Xperia Z and upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note III.  Earlier rumors indicate that this next smartphone will have quite impressive hardware features including a large 5.5 inch screen, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system and new touch controls at the back of the device.  It’s certain that this new device will be way faster than the leading Android smartphones in the market, but what makes the best smartphone today is a lot more than processor clock speed.  Whether the new smartphone will make it to the list is another story altogether.

That is all the details we have at the moment, we are not even certain the AnTuTu benchmark results are genuine because they can easily be faked by an overenthusiastic fan.  What we know is that the Snapdragon 800 processor is getting faster by the day as previous benchmark results of the new Sony Xperia Z Ultra showed.  It seems the second half of 2013 will see the launching of quite fast Android smartphones.  Let’s wait and see.

Mysterious LG device with Snapdragon 800 spotted in benchmark tests, most likely G2 not Nexus 5

LG_F320_AnTuTu_Benchmark

Another LG device was spotted in AnTuTu Benchmarks, and the speculation is that it could be the Nexus 5. It has a model number of LG-F320 and scored 32,000 points with its 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 CPU. I know a lot of people are hoping for a Nexus 5, but this is probably a G2 variant for Korea.

Remember, LG confirmed they aren’t working on a Nexus 5. Of course, shortly after, it was reported that they produced a prototype, but there are a lot of prototypes that never hit the market. I am still on record as saying there won’t be a Nexus phone this year, and instead, it’s going to be just Google Edition and Motorola phones from here on.

Going back to the G2, we should get a lot of info on the device at LG’s event on August 7.
