HP’s first Android smartphone BRAVE 657A’s specifications leaked on AnTuTu benchmark software screenshots.
HP Asia Pacific Senior Director of consumer business, Su-yin Yam said in a recent event that HP intends to return to the smartphone market. She claims that HP has indeed plans for the launch of a new smartphone, but did not give any specific timeline to it.
Although Yam did not disclose any information on the operating system of their new smartphone, there has been a recent leak of a HP smartphone device that appeared on a AnTuTu benchmark screenshot. It showed that this phone is equipped with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and it is in fact a fairly high end model.
The screenshot shows that HP BRAVE 657A has a 4.5-inch screen utilizes a 1600 x 900 resolution screen. It is powered by a new Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor which has 4 cores and runs at 2GHz. This is the same processor which is also found in many other flagship Android devices out in the market. The HP Android device also has a 14.5 megapixel rear and a 5 megapixel front camera.
Su-yin Yam said that HP’s new smartphone will definitely bring a completely different smartphone experience to users. Is that pure marketing thrash talk or do they have something up their sleeves? We can only wait until IFA 2013 which will be held in Berlin and hope that HP shed some light about the new device.
