All New HTC One Slaughters Competition in Alleged Benchmark

Most of what were once secrets behind the All New HTC One have already been spilled thanks to leaks. Crystal clear pictures already tell the story of an all-aluminum body with BoomSound speakers, a dual-camera setup and three color choices; a recent hands-on video even gave us a pretty decent walkthrough of the hardware. We’ve been a bit in the dark when it comes to specs, however, at least in terms of finding something with concrete details. Today, we’re greeted to new pictures and even a benchmark test that shed a bit more light on the situation.

Today’s photos of the device aren’t particularly noteworthy – it’s more of the same: we see the on-screen buttons, the curved corners and the larger display. However, one shot provides some information on how the device will perform against the competition.

An early AnTuTu benchmark score of about 38,000 shows the All New HTC One beating out the Galaxy Note 3 – which uses a Snapdragon 800 processor, and other phones such as the Xperia Z Ultra, LG G2, Galaxy S4 and hte original HTC One by a large margin. This perhaps indicates that HTC has either done a great job optimizing the software, or it’s using a faster Snapdragon 801 processor – the chip Samsung has tapped for its Galaxy S5 flagship.

HTC has done a great job optimizing its software. The HTC One still cruises just fine, and as this test shows it offers about half the performance of HTC’s new flagship. If this benchmark is indeed legitimate, we have a lot to look forward to on March 25 when HTC unveils the phone.
