Leaked Pantech phone benchmarks show Snapdragon 800 besting Exynos 5 Octa

48

Just how powerful will Snapdragon 800 be when it lands in our phones and tablets further down the road? If leaked benchmarks for a Pantech IM-A880X device with Qualcomm's fastest chipset are to be believed, it is faster than even Samsung's Exynos 5 Octa, as found on some Galaxy S4 handsets.

The difference is about 10%, but bear in mind the Pantech gear might be still in an engineering prototype testing phase, hence the benchmarks on AnTuTu, and the final retail version might be squeezing some performance out of the Snapdragon 800. 

Sony is another manufacturer rumored to come with a Snapdragon 800-based device by the end of the year, as well as LG, so we can't wait for the cage match when these land. Watch the demo of S800 given us by Qualcomm's team in early spring at MWC.
