HTC has kept their rumored HTC Shooter smart phone under wraps quite well since the rumors first started. Now, it looks as though some testing has been taking place with Sprint and the company incidently uploaded the results of their test online.
Hardware engineers have to know how well their upcoming super phones can turn out 3D images when compared to competing phones. The phone will reportedly run on Android like unlocked HTC Vision G2 Desire Z, and was testing using a tool that is named GLBenchmark. Basically, this tool looks at how well your phone performs when compared to a similar phone, and then will upload the results of the test in your online account, which others can publicly view.
The results that were uploaded online fall just short of the numbers that were set by the HD Mini, but well ahead of the numbers set by the HTC Aria. The benchmarking software is not able to look at every aspect of the device when it is turning out these numbers, but it did provide some very interesting hardware specs that many have been waiting for.
The benchmark tests revealed that the phone will be running on Sprint, and will be running on the Gingerbread version of Android, which is version 2.3.2. the 960x540 resolution display is quite large overall. It will be based on, what appears to be anyway, the Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU (based on the numbers that were released by the benchmark) and will also most likely be a dual-core CPU. Some have suggested that this will not be a new smart super phone after all, and instead will be a successor to the EVO. Look for the company to release more information about the device in the coming weeks to clear up some of the confusion that the benchmark results may have created.
