Windows Phone device with Snapdragon 805 and 2K display pops up under the name of Qualcomm LiQUID

The all-telling GFXBenchmark database has spat out this little gem you see above, indicating that a Windows device with Snapdragon 805 and Adreno 420 GPU might be in testing, under the codename Qualcomm LiQUID. 

Just as Windows Phone 8 brought support for 1080p displays, the next 8.1 version, that is likely to be announced today at Microsoft's BUILD conference, could bring support for Quad HD (1440x2560 pixels) screens. Granted, what we see above is quite a "cropped" section of that, at 1422x800 pixels, but the device title hints that this is actually a Qualcomm reference board that marries Windows Phone with the upcoming Snapdragon 805 chipset for testing purposes, which typically also includes scaling at different resolutions. 

Stay tuned for our boots on the BUILD conference ground, where all will be revealed in just a few hours from now. The nice thing about the new Snapdragon 801 and 805 processors, is that they offer a very significant boost in image processing speeds. This would resolve the saving speed issue with Nokia's huge Lumia 1020 PureView camera sensor, and its slow shot-to-shot times, so that we can have our 41 MP mobile camera cake, and eat it, too.

Unfortunately, no.

In case you don't know who Daniel Rubino is, he knows a lot, has a lot of contacts and is rarely wrong. I'll trust him before any wildly speculative anonymous rumours.

I think the main purpose of diverting from Windows Mobile to Windows Phone is to restrict the users from accessing their own phones especially WP7... Still prefer the flexiblity of WM and how versatile it is...

Exactly. Its been a year since Windows 8.1 on Desktop was released and still general consumers can't enjoy the features on their phones which were available to Android/ios since 2009. The disparity is huge.

MS is just too bureaucratic and complacent.

I must agree with you, WP has a very slow development rate. But I still have a hope on WP 8.1

The same thing also happen in 2013 when 1080p flagships flooded the market. Many people think that 1080p will consume a lot more power compared to 720p, but the fact says otherwise. But for me QHD display only good for device with higher than 5.5 inch display, below than that it's an overkill.

Look who's talking! one of the biggest android troll on this site! I mean honestly why can't you accept that WP is getting better and better? Are you that worried that WP might actually become better than android?

It goes both ways, unless you're implying, we don't see guys like the first poster in android articles?

Whatever will i do...oh nooooo...no wallpaper, my excel workload depends on it! As well as the 30million songs, oh crap my lockscreen music artist wallpaper is covering my wallpaper....nooooooooooooo.

Sorry when a grid of icons ruins the view of your wallpaper, it means nothing.

WP is getting better and better, but it's really slow. I hope that WP 8.1 is a huge update.

Again, read, no android article goes by without WP trolls trolling.
Prove to me where they like Sipps and Roddy do not?

It's not even compatible to the level fandroids do on wp.. don't be silly.. also I'm not sure who sipps is.. Rodney hasn't posted in a while and when he did at least it was with some truth.

OMG!!! This is simply amazing!!! Nokia Lumia 1820, for real! ;D

But wait... why the screen of Nokia Lumia 1520 is stated as 720p when it is FHD 1080p? Is there a typo?
