A few weeks ago, the HTC Ocean was unveiled as the HTC U 11 by prolific leakster Evan Blass. Today, a GeekBench result gives tech enthusiasts more clues as to what the HTC flagship device will be like.
Nothing much is known or confirmed about the upcoming HTC U 11 except that it will be a rebranding of sorts designed to "bridge past and present". Blass also reported that the handset will come in five different colors.
As GSMArena reported, the HTC U 11 is scheduled to be officially introduced on May 11. This means the company is hard at work doing the things that need to be done before the U 11 can actually be launched and then released to the public. One of those necessary things are benchmarking tests. Apparently, HTC has already done the GeekBench test for the U 11.
Neowin noted that the results of a GeekBench test involving an HTC device with the model name CBP has surfaced and they are quite staggering. The HTC CBP scored 1912 in the single-core category ad 6137 in the double-core. If the results are impressive that's because the specifications of the device are not something to scoff at.
The HTC CBP, or very likely the HTC U 11, is powered by the latest Qualcomm processor -- the Snapdragon 835. In the details provided, the motherboard is dubbed msm8998 that is simply the Snapdragon 835 with 8 cores and a clock speed of 1.90 GHz. The probable HTC U 11 test details also indicate that the device runs on Android Nougat 7.1.1 operating system and comes with 3728MB of memory that translates to 4GB of RAM.
To see how good the Geekbench test results of the HTC U 11 are, consider that the highly popular and powerful Samsung Galaxy S8 scored 1832 in single-core and 6301 in multi-core. Indeed the numbers are promising but as with all other rumors and leaks, tech enthusiasts are better off waiting for the final product before giving their final review.
