Windows 10

As we continue to wait for Microsoft to offer up some official news about their first smartphones made for Windows 10 Mobile, the benchmarking site GFXBench supposedly has a new listing for an alleged new Lumia device with some high-end hardware inside.

Nokia Benchmark

The site has a listing for the phone, with the code name "Nokia RM-1106". The listing shows that it has a 5.2-inch display with a resolution of 1920x1080. However, NokiaPowerUser claims that resolution is actually a crop of its full support for 2560×1440. It also lists a "hexa core CPU" from Qualcomm, which might be a reference to the Snapdragon 808 processor

The listing also shows that the phone has 1.5GB of RAM and 27GB of storage, but again NPU claims that the real numbers are 3GB and 32GB, respectively, due to GFXBench's methods of monitoring hardware. Finally, it shows a 17MP camera, but apparently that is a reference to a 20MP lens, as GFXBench records the info based on a 4:3 ratio.

We will note that online benchmark sites such as GFXBench are not always a reliable source of information when it comes to upcoming smartphones, as information uploaded to those kinds of sites can be faked. As always, this type of story should be treated with a degree of skepticism until Microsoft offers up its official information.
