Tegra K1 benchmarks, Galaxy S5 unveiling, and the new phablets from Sony: weekly news round-up

Weekly news round-up
Well, it looks like those 192 GPU cores inside NVIDIA's Tegra K1 SoC aren't there just for bragging rights. Graphics benchmarks made using NVIDIA's reference tablet surfaced online last week proving that the little piece of silicon packs quite a punch. To be more specific, the Tegra K1 outruns the iPad Air and the Note 3 by a mile, judging by its results on GFXBench. 

Will the SoC for the Samsung Galaxy S5 be this good? We can only guess, but we're likely to find out in March. That's when Samsung is now expected to announce its next flagship smartphone.

If HTC is the brand name you trust, then you should totally check out the latest rumors surrounding the mysterious HTC M8. Supposedly, the smartphone may come with a larger screen and a funky new dual camera of some kind.

And if you're more into phablets, make sure you don't miss the new Sony Xperia T2 Ultra. Announced just a couple of days ago, it offers a generous 6-inch display, 13MP main camera, and a Snapdragon 400 processor, all for a price of an upper mid-range Android smartphone.
