Off late the ‘820' hype is on the rise. Seeing the excitement surrounding the Snapdragon 820 powered Android smartphones, HP supposedly decided to place the foot of the pedal and earn themselves a share of the hype. Apparently a HP smartphone dubbed the Falcon running Windows 10 was spotted on GFXBench earlier today with a Snapdragon 820 on board.
According to the GFXBench listing the HP Falcon sports a 5.8 inch Quad HD (1440x2560p) display up front. However the USP of the HP made smartphone lies in the Snapdragon 820 SoC and the Adreno 530 on board, thereby making it the first Windows device with the latest Qualcomm chip on the inside.
Interestingly the benchmark listing reveal that the HP Falcon comes with only 1GB of RAM and 43GB of storage. Hence there's a possibility that HP is trying out the Snapdragon 820 SoC on the Falcon using a prototype device. Going by the patchy track record of GFXBench it is possible that both the RAM and internal storage listed are inaccurate.
Nevertheless other specs of the HP Falcon include 20MP rear camera and 12MP front facing. No more details about the device are however known as of yet. But the presence of the Snapdragon 820 SoC inside a Windows 10 device so early emphasizes Satya Nadella's vision of the taking the Windows 10 Mobile to the next level.
