An Alcatel One Touch D820 found on GFXBench, has a 4.6'', Quad HD resolution display and flagship specs

0. phoneArena 17 Jun 2014, 05:16 posted on

The GFXBench database has proven itself a goldmine for early insight into yet-unreleased phones, and after its latest update shows more hardware specifics than ever. This time around, the benchmark ran ashore a previously-unheard of Alcatel device that is quite intriguing...

4.6" QHD screen powered by Mediatek processor? U drunk Alcatel?

It's a Mediatek chipset but with a CPU with big.LITTLE configuration, with 4 cores
Arm Cortex A17 at 1.9GHz that can reach 2.2GHz, not A15 like wrote by Phone Arena but A17. It's only a little improvement in relation to A15, it's almost equal and finnaly 4 cores Cortex A7. The GPU it's a PowerVR 6 Rogue, but must be more powerful than the Iphone 5S GPU because the phone make use of QHD display.

The iPad Air and Mini Retina use the same GPU as the iPhone 5S, and they run just fine. They don't have quite as many pixels as QHD, but it's pretty close. The GPU in the 5S would be good enough for QHD

It is a G6200 with two clusters, it is weaker than the A7's GPU

I believe Alcatel gamed the benchmark.

I don't think so, it's pretty much what it's expected from the chipset.

Gamed in screen size and PPI.

Okay now this is getting abit out of hand? Even though LG G3 has a great battery life, imagine if they didn't have a QHD screen, they will have even better battery life. So all OEM please stop with QHD and come up with better battery life.

LG G3 great battery life ??

Based on PA review xD

With the PowerVR G6400 or 6430, this would be a great performer. Now if only Mediatek were more open with their SoCs

Sorry to correct you, but it's just a PowerVR 6200 (Rogue, 2 clusters) @ 600 MHz
That means it will be little bit less powerfull than Adreno 330:

I was speculating from the article where it says it's unspecified. I don't follow Mediatek SoCs very much.

I have not seen a 4.6 full hd screen.... now there will be a QHD.?

The HTC One M7 has a 4.7" full HD display, close enough. I really think currently, the cons HEAVILY outweigh the pros for QHD.

This bashing of QHD displays needs to stop. Really. If it doesn't affect the battery as much as you thought (which has been proven by stellar battery life in G3 with SAME battery as G2) then what the heck is wrong with higher resolution???
Are you going to ask the magazines and newspapers to start printing at 300 DPI because anything higher than that is a waste?

Its useless ATM. There is no content available for such high resolution, nor there are any games which utilizes this, neither apps which make use of this resolution & no content on internet to read. I'm glad OEM's like Sony,HTC,Samsung didn't introduce QHD yet.

The only reason the battery wasn't hit as hard as we expected was because of LG's special adaptive optimizations. Without them, battery life would be much worse. Since those are specific to LG, any other manufacturers will either have to come up with their own optimizations, compensate with a larger battery, or just deal with less battery life.

Also, QHD displays have 77% more pixels than FHD. So, in order to get the same frame rates that can be had with the Adreno 330 pushing 1080p, you would need to use a GPU with 77% higher performance, and that hasn't happened yet. Manufacturer's are still using the Adreno 330, which is still very good, but the fact that we are actually going backwards in theoretical performance is unsettling.

Another reason is that other than pixel density (which really isn't a noticeable improvement with QHD), the display quality is generally worse on QHD than FHD displays. The maximum brightness is lower because a higher concentration of pixels makes it harder for light to get through, and the contrast is lower.

That's why I don't think QHD is useful on phones right now. Until these issues are resolved, I would rather stick with 1080p on phones and keep QHD on tablets.

full hd will be a hit for 4.6 panel bcoz too many pupils want full hd on 4.5 to 4.7 panels

FINALLY a phone for all those that are complaining about the size of all new phones!
Go for it guys and gals, get this, and the rest of us can continue asking for even moaaar size than 5.x inches. :-)
