An Unknown HTC Mid Range Smartphone Spotted On Geekbench
Taiwanese company HTC is best known for its smartphones. However, due to intense competition in the space, sales for HTC have fallen significantly. It has been long speculated that the company may exit the smartphone business altogether. However, last month a mid-range HTC handset surfaced on performance benchmarking platforms Geekbench and Antutu which suggests otherwise. In a fresh leak, another smartphone from the company has been leaked on Geekbench revealing its specifications.
HTC Mid Range Smartphone
The unreleased HTC smartphone has been listed as the model number “HTC 2Q741” on the benchmarking website Geekbench. The specifications of the unreleased smartphone suggest it will be a mid-range device which will compete with the likes of the Redmi Note 7 Pro and the Samsung Galaxy A50. According to the listing, it features the “ARM MT6765V/WA” SoC which is the code name of the MediaTek Helio P35 mobile processor. The chipset is comprised of an Octa-Core ARM Cortex-A53 CPU and the IMG PowerVR GE8320 GPU. Notably, the base clock speed of the SoC is measured at 2.3 GHz in the listing.
The Geekbench listing reveals the mysterious smartphone from HTC will have 6GB of RAM which might be paired with 128GB of internal storage. On the benchmarking platform, the device attains a single core score of 897 and a multi-core score of 4385. Unfortunately, the listing does not uncover more details about the handset. However, reports are rife it will be a region-specific variant of the HTC 2Q7A100, which as mentioned above, was leaked last month.
Unfortunately, HTC has not confirmed the authenticity of the leak, therefore, the price and the launch date of the upcoming smartphone by the company is anyone’s guess. But, the specifications of the device insinuate it will be a sub Rs. 20,000 handset when and if launched in India.
