HTC M8 AnTuTu Benchmark Posted Online, Points to Possibly Finalized Specs

HTC One Buttons

HTC is apparently taking to benchmark apps to see how well its new flagship device is panning out. In newly posted benchmarks from AnTuTu, the M8 device, rumored to be the successor of the One, is seen running a Snapdragon 800 chipset with 2GB of RAM, featuring a 5″ 1080p display. While a few folks have posted that these are finalized specifications, keep in mind that prototype devices featuring non-finalized specs could be tested throughout any given period. For now, we can safely say that these are “possibly finalized” specs, just not completely confirmed. 

As we can see in the graphic below, the M8 packs a bigger punch than the One, which features a Snapdragon 600 processor and 2GB of RAM. The M8 is also listed as featuring Android 4.4, which should allow the S800 to perform certain tasks with more ease than a device running Android 4.3, given the work Google put into the OS to utilize less RAM on a device.

HTC M8 Benchmark

Overall, the M8 should be a great step forward for HTC in the spec department, but we feel that many will have their eyes more on the externals than the internals. From the various leaked images we have seen, the new flagship should hold the same look of the One, but possibly a more rounded metallic feel.

We still have a ways to go before HTC announces the device, so you can bet on there being plenty more M8 leaks in the future.

    why cant we have small phones with the exact same spects as huge phones I dont want a 5in anymore, I know its not such a big deal anymore. I want an HTC one in the min size but i dont want the weaker specs and I dont want the change in design. just wanted to rant.

  • Dave

    Benchmarks…..blah. My old Droid DNA outdoes my current GN2 in every benchmark, and side by side the GN2 does absolutely everything quicker and smoother.

    • hkklife

      Probably because the DNA is pushing around a lot more pixels….1080P versus the N2′s 720p screen. I honestly think most Touchwiz devices feel lagger than the newer Sense devices.

      • Dave

        But doesn’t it have a better GPU? “Lag” is a pretty loose term also, almost any newer phone is pretty snappy. I have a hard time calling a phone laggy if it takes an extra ⅛ of a second to do a function. 48 hour battery life with 6-7 hours of screen time may not be easy on a 1080 screen, no problem on this 720.

        • gtg465x

          A lot of us call frame dropping / animation stuttering lag. Even though one phone may open an app just as fast as another, if it drops 5 frames in the opening animation, it just looks like crap and gives the perception of poor performance (even though the app might have opened just as fast). Some people have started to refer to this as microstutters instead of lag to make it more clear.

          • Dave

            Gotcha…that makes sense.

      • Mike Hilal

        The newest TW is far snappier than nonsense. It goes back and forth. HTC does things to be different…sales numbers show that different is wrong in this case.

    • Shadowstare

      A. running what software?
      B. Never had a Note, but I find that hard to believe.

  • rthvk

    So you’re saying it has nearly the exact same specs as the G2?

        Dafuq?

      • ToddAwesome

        I think you’re lost.

    • Mike Hilal

      They’re going out of business anyways…so it’s nbd

      • Herinel Pichardo

        out of business? what news did I miss, just because they’ve been doing bad doesn’t mean they’re going out of business. HTC has solid products and bad marketing, which hopefully is getting better.

        • Mike Hilal

          They have so-so products (great materials/build quality marred by quirky SW/HW choices). All the marketing in the world cant fix that.

          • malcmilli

            so-so products that are constantly rated top devices of the year… only bad thing about their phones are battery sizes.

          • JeffColorado

            …and Sense. It was the main reason I left HTC.

            That and no SD/or removable battery. The Rezound was the last HTC phone I liked.

          • malcmilli

            sense is no different than any other skin, it is in fact lighter than many others. That comes down to plain ol’ personal preference. SD card/removable battery are nice additions but are proven not to be a big deal to majority of users. So that can’t entirely be considered a poor hardware choice since most phones are moving in that direction anyway. Its a pro id your phone has it, but not a con if it doesnt.

          • Weston

            SD cards are outdated tech you dumbass. As our removable batteries. They are a thing of the past.

          • Zack

            @disqus_jZ57Ybjr3r:disqus I think YOU are outdated!
            @f6f9dd18744080743e89e3305ae215c4:disqus fanboy? Man, this guy (Weston) is crazy for HTC! Say ONE word against HTC and this guy goes nuts. Wanna see? @Weston, HTC sucks! :P

          • jon

            By who?

            HTC fanboys?

          • malcmilli

            some but also sites like phandroid, engadget, and other third party tech sites… as well as t3 gadget awards, and a few awards at Mobile World Congress… just to name a few… It’s ok to own a samsung phone and still acknowledge that other phones are good two :-).

          • Weston

            You are a stupid twat

          • frankieb

            I think we found a fanboy…..

      • JMonkeYJ

        We all better really hope HTC doesn’t go out of business…

    • gtg465x

      People keep saying this, but to my knowledge, there is no mobile processor currently available that outdoes the Snapdragon 800, so what can HTC do? They are going with the best option available. Just because a couple current phones already have that chip doesn’t mean HTC is dropping the ball. Hell, the Galaxy S5 might use the Snapdragon 800 in Europe and the US as well, and some new Exynos in select markets.

      And 2GB of RAM should be plenty. I have never had an issue with multitasking on my Nexus 4 and HTC One, both with 2GB of RAM, and Android 4.4 is even more memory efficient, so why is 3 or 4GB necessary?

      • poop

        The Snapdragon 805 is coming; HTC can wait for that. As for the Galaxy S5, if it doesn’t use some 64-bit Snapdragon SoC then it’s going to use the newest Exynos chips so that it can offer 3GB – 4GB. It really doesn’t matter what’s efficient; companies are going to keep beefing it up to avoid fixing necessary problems like the battery (which is admittedly pretty good on devices like the MAXX, G2, and Moto X, but could still do with some improvement with longevity of the battery itself).

        • malcmilli

          the new Exynos chips are never used in the LTE versions… People also havent been too much of a fan of the recent execution of the Exynos.

          • Jeff McLean

            *usually* not used.

            Exynos was definitely used in US based Note 2 when it was out.

          • malcmilli

            True

        • gtg465x

          Qualcomm said the 805 won’t be available until the second half of 2014, and even then, it may not be available in mass production quantities for multiple OEMS. The HTC M8 will launch sometime between January and March, so there’s just no way. I think it would be a bad move to wait another 6 months and launch in Fall 2014 just to get the 805 in there instead of the 800.

        • Jason B

          3-4GB is still in 32-bit address space limits, so that’s no big deal really. It’s when you go above the 4GB limit that 64-bit becomes a necessity. 2^32 = 4,294,967,296 or 4GB.

          Besides, I don’t even know of any Android apps that are large address aware (LAA) to use a lot of RAM (1GB+). Even if they were able to, Android has to allow it first, and there are limits placed on RAM usage. So, there’s a lot more infrastructure that needs to be put in place to take advantage of 64-bit computing on mobile devices.

        • Weston

          805 is not coming until summer 2014 moron. And the only reason Sammy needs more ram is Touchwiz sucks.

  • MistaButters

    Considering the One and the leaks, the M8 looks like it’s also going to be awkwardly large for it’s respective screen size.

    • StuckOnVerizonForever

      Yep, those ugly distracting bezels

    • Cyber Jethro

      The One has about 2 millimeters of bezel on the sides. It’s possible that they could raise the screen size while making it fit in the same sized body.

      • Maxim∑

        Its just a little to much with boom sound+captive keys+bezels. If HTC could switch to softkeys and trim the bezels a little that would be nice. They are in no position to mess up again like with the Max

        • Herinel Pichardo

          oh please don’t remind me of the frankenstein that is the ONE MAX.

    • gtg465x

      Well, the HTC One is slightly more narrow than the Nexus 4, which also has a 4.7 inch screen, and also more narrow than the Galaxy S3, Galaxy S4 Nexus 5, etc. If you’re talking about height, then yes, it’s as tall as most phones with 5 to 5.2 inch screens, but that’s because of the dual front speakers, and width is more important for in hand comfort anyways.

  • StuckOnVerizonForever

    They always seem to be a step behind. Basically a G2 with smaller screen and not as good camera.

    • Adrynalyne

      Where did you find actual camera performance and specs?

      • StuckOnVerizonForever

        Based on their obsession with ultrapixel, i dont expect anything good to come from it.

        • Adrynalyne

          Ah. You don’t actually know. Thanks for clearing that up.

          • StuckOnVerizonForever

            Dont have to know. It’s basically guranteed.

          • Sankyou

            The One’s camera smokes the G2. I’ve owned both and it wasn’t even close.

          • StuckOnVerizonForever

            LOL- that’s all i have to say to that

          • http://www.droid-life.com/ Tim-o-tato

            No. Just no. I mean, sure we all get opinions, but come on lol The G2 in 99% of circumstances would dominate the One’s UltraPixel sensor. :)

          • Sankyou

            It doesn’t have the hardware but how many phones with awful camera software have to be released before you all accept that hardware doesn’t mean much of anything. The iPhones don’t even have OIS and they beat the crap out of everything Android.

          • http://www.droid-life.com/ Tim-o-tato

            In a side by side camera battle – G2 vs. One – the G2 would win. If someone concerned with software and hardware cares, then they would realize this – given the optics are night and day different. Now, if you want to compare the Moto X (or Nexus 5) and the One cameras, that’s a discussion I could get into. My point is if companies are still investing in a spec war, then the buyers will care about what specs they’re running. Simple as that.

          • Herinel Pichardo

            And that’s the thing that kills me, is that the Moto X should have a killer camera by its spec sheet at least, bigger pixels and 10MP count, but I really think the software and lack of OIS is what brings it down a few notches from being the best.

          • Sankyou

            Certainly on pure specs the G2 wins. It did take good pictures. Also I’m with you that specs matter and they shouldn’t all just arbitrarily be thrown out. When it comes to cameras; however, specs are way too overrated IMO. On my phone, I want to be able to tap and have a usable photo.

          • http://www.droid-life.com/ Tim-o-tato

            Oh yes, I completely agree. Now, I could see a 8MP sensor with OIS and a good UI being way more usable and suitable than a 16MP w/ OIS that Samsung is talking about. That just seems over the top for a cellphone, so I’m right there with you.

          • Chris

            My eVO LTE has a camera button!

          • Tim242

            Umm no. The S4, Note 3, and G2 spank the iPhone camera.

          • JeffColorado

            According to who? Look at all the comparison reviews…the 5s might be in the same league as the best Android phones, but it is certainly not better.

          • Weston

            Not according to reviews

          • Herinel Pichardo

            I’d have to disagree that the current One’s camera smokes the G2 as I have had both. With a higher MP count it would but it’s definitely not there yet, the Next One could really shake things up though.

          • Sankyou

            What are you guys doing with all of the megapixels? Printing out an 8×10 is as much as I’ll ever do with a photo and the One can produce good results there. How many of you are trying to take pictures of kids? That’s where the difference is clear.

          • StuckOnVerizonForever

            Not many people own kids so i mean, thats irrelevant

          • Chris

            Unless you are a kid your self then the better question is why do you have a smartphone in the first place?

          • Adrynalyne

            I’ve gotta say, if it weren’t for me having a daughter, I’d not have a smartphone. Number one thing I do with them is snap pics.

            Nah, who am I kidding. ;)

          • Adrynalyne

            Not many?

            Again, talking about crap you don’t know.

          • Herinel Pichardo

            Does that mean he’s your kid now? since you just owned him :P

          • Adrynalyne

            Yikes.

            I’d have to skip town and become a deadbeat dad were that the case. Nay…the country.

          • Tim242

            Zooming, cropping, and just having more detail.

          • Weston

            Get a real camera then.

          • Tim242

            I have one, on my S4, now a Note 3. I took great vacation pics with my S4 this summer. Cropped some, printed them all. There is no excuse for the horrible camera on the One.

          • Weston

            The HTC One camera isn’t horrible. It is amazing. it is better than the S4,

          • Tim242

            Hahaha boy, put down that crack pipe.

          • Weston

            You are a twat

          • Tim242

            You are the only person dumb enough to say that the One’s camera is better than the S4. What does that make you? Oblivious at best, stupid at worst.

          • Weston

            A lot of reviews said the same thing moron.

          • Tim242

            Reviews praised its low light pics, but even said they had a bit too much noise. Every single review slammed the camera in every other area. You can’t provide one single review link that says it’s as good or better than the S4. That is a fanboy moron made up statement

          • Weston

            Wrong again. Brain Klug praised the camrera as has Aaron Baker just to name a few

          • Tim242

            Only for low light. They said for regular pics, it lacked contrast, and especially detail. That happens with just 4MP. They certainly didn’t claim it to be better, or even as good as the S4, Where are your links. C’mon, prove me wrong. Put up, or shut up.

          • Weston

            Wrong again. Apparently you have no read Brian Klug’s review. Or watched Aaron Baker’s reviews on PhoneDog. Aaron Baker is constantly praising the camera on the One and how great it is. Not just in low light but in general in his reviews he always does comparisons and has said the One has one of the best cameras on a phone he loves it. Come on actually do better than that. Do some research and go check out the sources before commenting back you dumb ass.

          • Tim242

            I’ve seen both reviews, and you are lying. Where is your link?

          • Weston

            You clearly haven’t. Go to youtube. Look up phonedog and watch the videos on the HTC One. You will hear nothing but praise from Aaron Baker.

            http://www.anandtech.com/show/6747/htc-one-review/4

            Nice try though. You clearly have no idea what you are talking about.

          • Tim242

            In that review, he plainly states that a tradeoff on the One’s camera is less resolution, dynamic range, and sharpness. He states that it is good enough to post on social networks. What he does not talk about is cropping or printing. He also never says it is better than the S4. You added a lot of your own fanboy opinion to his review, that just wasn’t there. Would you like me to post links to reviews from Droid Life, Android Police, Android Central, The Verge, Engadet, Phandroid, and every other one I can find that says the camera is trash for regular pics?

          • Weston

            Misquoting the article

            ‘improved low light sensitivity AND dynamic range at the expense of spatial resolution.’

            Nice try. And wrong again. Every review praises the camera. You clearly are a moron who cannot read.

          • Tim242

            See quote below. It shows what Droid Life says about the camera. FAR FAR FROM PRAISE.

            Camera

            Some people have given Motorola credit for trying to end the spec war with the launch of the Moto X this fall, but HTC’s UltraPixel deserves a nod as well. The camera isn’t the best out there, but it will get the job done in everyday situations that you will find yourself in, without a better dedicated camera. If you look hard enough, you can find the times where it brings in too much light or in some photos you can pick out the noise. All in all, the camera isn’t that terrible. (To check out more in-depth camera tests see our earlier reviews here and here.)

          • Weston

            You are a twat fanboy htc hater who cannot deal with real facts.

          • Tim242

            But I thought you said every review praised it? I showed you one that didn’t. You want more?

          • Chris

            MP arent everything.

          • Herinel Pichardo

            MP are not everything. I’ve never said that. But there is a balance that needs to be kept, 4MP resolution isn’t enough to give you a clear image in a lot of cases. Sensor Technology and MP are both important. I would like to see something with 8-10MP and the HTC One’s 2.0 micron pixel size.

          • Tim242

            MP are definitely something.

          • Tim242

            You are on crack.

          • JeffColorado

            LOL!

        • Herinel Pichardo

          If they get an 8MP ultra pixel camera it’s going to be hard to beat especially if there is OIS. I have an LG G2 and I can say it’s probably the best Android camera around but if it just had a bit better lowlight capability it would be perfect. But in order to have such a high MP count LG had to reduce the Pixel size to about half the microns that the HTC One has.

          • StuckOnVerizonForever

            The flash works perfectly in low light with the G2. Daytime shots are simply beautiful. Stopped carrying around extra cameras because of it

          • Herinel Pichardo

            I’m not putting down the G2 camera I’m just saying low light is a place where I can do better. And for photography you never want to use a flash. Especially on a phone, the software usually over or under exposes when a flash is involved. Again the G2 is amazing, just the HTC One definitely takes in more light. It just doesn’t reproduce it with as much clarity as the G2.

          • Chris

            lets just wait and see what the M8 has in store before making such claims on a soon to be year old device.

          • hkklife

            G2 has really raised the bar for late 2013 onwards. Anyone not managing to make a device as one-hand friendly while packing the G2′s combination of screen size/quality, SoC, camera, and battery life is gonna come up short.

          • JMonkeYJ

            I’d assume the next HTC will have OIS since the One has it. I doubt they would take a step back unless there is a more compelling new technology.

        • Weston

          The Ultrapixel got rave reviews from every respected outlet. It out performs every camera on every phone I have tried. And takes better images than my Canon.

    • Greg111

      I hope, the specs in this benchmark test aren’t final. 4 megapixel camera once more would be a shame… 8 mpx camera is a minimum for a hightech smartphone in 2014
