Taiwanese company HTC is testing another mid-range Android smartphone that goes by the name of HTC OPERAUL.
In fact, the handset maker is readying more than one devices aimed at different targets. We already reported on the recently leaked HTC DLX (Deluxe)
, which is rumored to arrive in the US through Verizon Wireless.
For those unfamiliar with the Verizon-bound DLX, the smartphone leaked a few days ago and it’s said to boast a large 5-inch display with full HD (1080p) resolution.
Rumor has it the HTC DLX will be equipped with a quad-core processor clocked at 1.5 GHz and 2GB of RAM.
Anyway, it appears that details about an unannounced HTC device emerged online via NenaMark benchmark site
. Apparently, someone is already testing the device, which is codenamed HTC OPERAUL.
The NenaMark results show the device is powered by a 1.4 GHz processor and that it packs an HD capacitive touchscreen display that supports 720 x 1280 pixels resolution.
Although it’s unclear if the processor that powers the smartphone as one or more cores, we speculate HTC OPERAUL might be equipped with a quad-core CPU.
That’s because the Adreno 305 graphics processing unit mentioned in the benchmark is usually paired with the first-generation quad-core processors built on Krait architecture. Obviously, we could be mistaken on this one, so take it with a grain of salt.
NenaMark also confirms HTC OPERAUL will ship with Android 4.1.1
Jelly Bean operating system out of the box, which makes sense if this were a high-end smartphone. That’s further proof that the device might be actually equipped with at least a dual-core CPU.
Unfortunately, that’s about everything we know about the mysterious HTC OPERAUL, but we expect more details on the phone’s specs sheet, availability and pricing options will surface in the following weeks. Stay tuned for more updates on the matter.
