43,000 AnTuTu benchmark score tallied by mystery phone
So what device has blown the top off of the AnTuTu benchmark site? We do know that it runs the MT-6595, has 3GB of RAM and features Android 4.4.2. Some possibilities include the rumored Meizu MX4; the manufacturer's unannounced new flagship model is due out in the second half of this year. Another name bandied about is the Xiaomi Mi3S, although this model previously waltzed through the AnTuTu site with a 31,000 score. However, the Snapdragon 801 was employed on that model. Perhaps a switch to the MT-6595 is in store for the phone.
There are so many possibilities that it seems crazy to try to guess. What we do know, is that a new high-powered handset is on the way.

Trust me, no one wants nexus 6 powered by MT- 6595 chip.

Right a snapdragon 801/805 will be nice. Snapdragon is really great because of their support from developers and custom rom makers.

The 64bit K1 reference scored a 42000 with only 2 cores.

But they had to stop the benchmark halfway through and recharge the battery to finish it

What battery? It had to be plugged into the wall to supply enough power!

No. It needs to be a bigger upgrade from the Nexus 5 than just the 801 or 805. I feel like Google would want their own flagship device to take full advantage of Android L, which means 64 bit support. If they stick with Snapdragon, I would expect no less than an 810, otherwise I would be disappointed. If they go Nvidia, the Tegra K1 using Denver cores is a sure thing, though probably at a lower clock speed to offset the huge power draw the K1 seems to have.

"No. It needs to be a bigger upgrade from the Nexus 5 than just the 801 or 805. I feel like Google would want their own flagship device to take full advantage of Android L, which means 64 bit support."
Maybe an Intel chip this time? That would be interesting. Perhaps not very compelling, but it would be a big win for Intel and intriguing to see how Android would evolve on an x86 platform.
36. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4122; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
That would definitely be interesting. ART does support x86, so there wouldn't be a compatibility problem with apps. But most Android devices I've seen with Intel chips have that "Intel Inside" branding on the back, it's not very attractive. I don't know if it's Intel telling them to put their branding on it, but if it is I would hope Google can get around it.
44. TheMoltenD (Posts: 109; Member since: 13 Jul 2014)
Most people know Intel makes powerful CPUs so the Intel Inside is to attract attention. It wouldn't make sense if the phone said Qualcomm or Exynos inside.

Mediatek? Not interested even if scored that high besides real life experience is more reliable than this BS testing method.
14. CanYouSeeTheLight (Posts: 971; Member since: 05 Jul 2012)
Would be really funny a Nexus device where the updates would only arrive 2-3 months after the other due to Mediatek's craptastic support.
19. cezarepc (Posts: 625; Member since: 23 Nov 2012)
But once Google opts for Mediatek chips on Nexus devices dev support is sure to follow, and then the MT-chip efficiency and performance will increase, and customs roms will pour in.
They might even be able to push the price even lower, which would be great. I don't mind having an MT-powered nexus device that always gets updates straight from Google, that costs $100 lol

It says 4.4.2. But even then, I doubt Google would be testing a Nexus with 4.4.2 installed at this point.

mediatek? I really wonder... if the score were only 43, I wont wonder... aah! I got it, PA forget to put a point after 43..... so the real score is 43.149

an apology for bashing MT but my experience was not good

What is the use of such power, the software and game development is still sh*t in the minimum space,
3. j.khan95 (Posts: 51; Member since: 09 Nov 2013)
I.mean "mobile space" not "minimum space", finally found a bug in android L keyboard

Great faster multi tasking , 2k,4k video capture support and display support(for tablets), more graphics intensive games will come in future so it'll handle them smooothly,future proof with updates,etc

What if Google gives phones the ability to function as chrome desktops running a full blown OS when launching a app within android? All you need is a chromecast (screen mirroring), bluetooth keyboard and mouse. You could have a full blown computer experience while keeping your phone in your pocket.
There is no such thing as too much power when our imaginations are unlimited.

So mediaTek is not just a cheap processors they do have enough to rival the best. Thumbs up mediatek. Now its time to make it available kernal source code free.

My redmi Note just arrived. Testing it now so far so good. Best value played all the games I throw at it with easy.
The phone performance is on par with Samsung note 2 and the price they are selling is really a steal.
8. csoulr666 (Posts: 94; Member since: 04 Nov 2013)
I'm never up for power, the processor should just get the work done without any hiccups........ Which is why I was hoping for a mid-range phone with a S600, considering it is nowadays called "Mid-range"

That's what I did. Not a "power" user. My device is about business. I do service calls, through a website. 1500-2000 phone minutes a month, 10-15 text messages a day, 20-30 emails a day, 5-10 photos (close up macro type) per day. Battery is more important than 2-4k video etc. I went to upgrade my Note1, which is gettin' old. I went with a Huawei Ascend Mate2. Yeah, obviously not the biggest & badest process or screen, but, for less than 400 bucks, it's lightning fast, and even though it's "just" a 720p screen, it's clear & bright. The BIG selling point was the battery! I've gone over 3 days of constant use without once plugging it into the charger. My note I had to constantly plug it into a charger, even with a new battery.
Latest & greatest, if you are a power user is one thing, but the majority of users probably won't touch 3/4 of the power of these high end devices, that ALSO have outrageous prices.

If you zoom you'll see that the name of the phone begins with a "K9", so it seems to be one of Lenovo's flagships.
FYI, I do read Chinese.

Hmmm it looks like an LG G3.Compare a screenshot of the LG G3 with this one...It could be LG G3 Prime

mediatek : Introducing the world first 16 core CPU" "But we give you cheap Cortex A7"

I'm betting it's the ZTE nubia seven- it was announced yesterday
34. lpratas (Posts: 109; Member since: 09 Nov 2011)
It's Mediatek but it has 4 cores Arm Cortex A17, beyond 4 cores Cortex A7, which are similar to Arm Cortex A15 and come to substitute him. For that, don't admire yourselves that the performance it's great and associated to a powerful PowerVR 6 Rogue gpu it gives that result.

Maybe Lenovo phone as the phone model start with K.
