Quadcore powered Nokia Lumia shows up on GFXBench

Quadcore powered Nokia Lumia shows up on GFXBench
For Windows Phone fans hoping that their favorite platform will soon get the same hardware support that other OS get, some good news has appeared on GPU benchmarking site GFXBench. While the site concentrated on scoring the Adreno 305 GPU on the unnamed device, it does show that a quad-core processor is on board the unit. The resolution of the screen is 720 x 1280, although eventually we should see Nokia start testing out 1080 x 1920 resolution panels.

Back in April, there was speculation that Nokia was debating whether or not to include a dual-core or quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 in the Nokia EOS handset. For a Windows Phone model to be compatible with a quad-core processor, it needs to run on the GDR 3 updated version of Microsoft's mobile OS.

At the time, we said that Nokia was looking at battery life to determine whether or not to go ahead with placing a quad-core processor inside the photo-centric model. There is talk that Nokia is having problems with the battery life on the quad-core models it is testing which probably means that we will see dual-core silicon on the Nokia EOS. But the benchmark testing indicates that there will be a quad-core powered Lumia model eventually, possibly by the time that the first Nokia Lumia phablet is released in the third or fourth quarter.
