HTC’s New Octa-Core Smartphone Spotted In Antutu Benchmarks [Leak]


Two new HTC smartphones have appeared in AnTuTu benchmarks ahead of their official unveilings — and one of them is packing a super-fact octa-core (eight-core) MediaTek processor. Don’t let that fool you, though; it’s certainly not a high-end flagship.

Known as the HTC D616W, the new smartphone carries a 5-inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 720, an 8-megapixel camera sensor on the back, a 2-megapixel camera sensor on the front, and a 1.6 GHz octa-core Cortex-A7 (MediaTek MT6592) processor.

Other internals include 1GB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.

The D616W registered a decent score of 27,672 on AnTuTu, but it’s certainly not a high-end device. It does have an octa-core CPU, but there’s no 1080p display, minimal internal storage, and an older version of Android.

The second of the leaked devices is known as the HTC D516W, which is not as well equipped as the D616W in terms of hardware. The display resolution is 960 x 540 pixels, but there’s no word on its size, with its quad-core Snapdragon 200 chipset is clocked at 1.2 GHz.

The HTC D516W also packs 768MB of RAM, 2GB of storage, a 5-megapixel camera on the back, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. It scores a paltry 16,438 during the course of the test, but that’s understandable given the hardware.
