Galaxy S4 (SHV-E330S) Pops up on AnTuTu with a Snapdragon 800
There’s a new version of the Galaxy s4 making the rounds on AnTuTu today. This one has the model number SHV-E330S, and is running Android 4.2.2 like the others, but it’s said to be running the Snapdragon 800 processor and is also said to support LTE-Advanced, according rbmen. Of course the device is not official, and these benchmarks are easily faked, but it’s still interesting nonetheless.
The screenshot above shows that the processor is clocked at 2265MHz which is equivalent to 2.3GHz. Keep in mind that the Snapdragon 800 maxes out at 2.3GHz. What is interesting here is that the Snapdragon 800 did not pass the Snapdragon 600 or Exynos 5 Octa Galaxy S4 on the benchmark. In fact it scored lower than both of them.""
"There are other rumored devices to be sporting the Snapdragon 800 like the Sony Xperia ZU, Galaxy Note 3, Optimus G2, and the HTC One Max. Since the Snapdragon 800 went into mass production in late May, we should start seeing it in the second half of this year."
humm... different corporate goals. nvda goes for the buzz while qcom goes for sales and profits.
Hands-On With Toshiba’s New Android Tablets: Stunning Specs But Shocking Design
June 4, 2013 - 12:30pm
"Toshiba’s just launched a trio of new Android Excite tablets, and on paper they look pretty sweet: a budget £250 machine, and a more interesting pair of Tegra 4-powered tablets that are gunning after the high-end Android tablet market, all powered by sweet sweet stock ‘Droid. In the flesh, though, they don’t exactly live up to their promise. In fact, they’re all-round a little disappointing."
...."Battery life is promised at 9.5 hours on all the tablets, though obviously we didn’t have time to verify that. What we can say, though, is that the Tegra 4-packing tablets get uncomfortably hot when you start pushing them, far more so than any other tablet we’ve played with before. All the machines will be available in the UK in Q3, being initially retailed through PC World. To be brutally honest, none of the tablets are really worth the money."
