HTC OPERAUL is a mysterious Android smartphone, sports an HD screen and Snapdragon S4 chip
There is a new, yet-to-be-announced HTC smartphone incoming, and we aren't talking about the long-rumroed HTC DLX (or whatever its true name turns out to be). A device only known as the HTC OPERAUL at this time has been spotted on the NenaMark website, with a Qualcomm SoC and an HD screen.

For those of you who don't know, NenaMark is a popular benchmark application for Android that measures graphics performance. Some benchmark results are posted online for the world to see, and along with the device's score, the app also lists a number of its specs, such as GPU make and model, CPU clock speed, and Android version. That's how we learned about the HTC OPERAUL.

So, what we know about this HTC smartphone is that it has a screen with resolution of 720 by 1280 pixels. Its CPU maxes out at 1.4GHz, and the Android version installed on it is 4.1.1 Jelly Bean. Moreover, there is an Adreno 305 GPU handling all the complex graphics computations, meaning that the HTC OPERAUL is powered by a dual-core Snapdragon S4 Plus chip – presumably the MSM8x30.

That is all we have for now, but we'll keep you posted in case we learn more. In the meantime, feel free to make a guess in the comments down below. What do you think the HTC OPERAUL could be?

Thanks for sending this in!

Are we talking about a 3.5", 4", 4.7", 5", 5.5", 6" screen what? Everything else looks good, spec wise. If it's bigger then 5", please have a stylus built in.

it's either a One S Successor or an all new One Variant.

Please let it come to T-Mobile. Sprint has their EVO, AT&T has the One X and One X+, and Verizon is getting the DLX. We have been stuck on the One S far too long.
