Less than a week after talking about a leak involving what might be Pantech’s flagship smartphone in 2012, we managed to pick up a benchmark of another Pantech Android-based handheld, the P8010.
The Pantech P8010 is very similar to the IM-A830S leaked last week, as far as we can tell, and for the time being there’s just one tiny detail that sets the two apart. The P8010 will most likely sport a qHD 960 x 540 pixels resolution screen, while the IM-A830S should feature a full HD 1280 x 720 pix res display.
Other than that, both smartphones should be powered by 1.5 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processors and should run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box. There’s also a good chance for both gadgets to feature the exact same processor (namely the MSM8960), but this particular detail is yet to be confirmed.
On the other hand, if we are to trust this benchmark’s data, the P8010 should be made available exclusively from carrier AT&T in the US. If that proves accurate, the smartphone will most likely come with 4G LTE connectivity. In fact, there’s even a good possibility that the P8010 will be a special version of the IM-A830S with a slightly poorer screen, but better connectivity options.
However, these are all speculations right now, so we should concentrate more on what we know or seem to know at the moment. And taking a look at the NenaMark 2 benchmark score below, we can safely assume that we are dealing with a very snappy smartphone.
In comparison, the P8010’s 59.2 score is one full point higher than HTC Incredible 4G’s, but one and a half point weaker than the mysterious HTC VAE_WX’s score, leaked earlier today.
As you might expect, we don’t know anything about the pricing and availability of this future Pantech smartphone for the time being, but we are (almost) sure that all of the details will be revealed in the coming weeks or so. You only have to regularly check back to our website and you will be one of the first to find out everything there is to know about the Pantech P8010.
