HTC “Shooter” brings the speed in benchmark tests!

| March 16, 2011 | 2 Replies

With all the focus on HTC with the launch of the ThunderBolt tomorrow from Verizon it looks like Sprint might be getting a VERY powerful new HTC phone if these leaked benchmarks are to be believed. The leaked benchmarks show a “HTC Shooter” on Sprint’s network with Android 2.3.3 in tow and a 960 x 540 resolution screen!! Also the benchmark shows an Adreno 220 GPU paired with one of Qualcomm’s upcoming dual core Snapdragon chips which might be clocked somewhere around 1.2GHz per core WOW!!! I for one am not one to place a lot on these benchmark tests but the “HTC Shooter” is blowing the doors off of all current dual core phones/tabs out there! 22.fps on GLBenchmark is what the “Shooter” grabbed while in comparison the dual core sporting Atrix 4G from Motorola only got a 19.4 fps score!!

So Sprint customers getting excited to see what Sprint is going to announce at CTIA? Hoping this new HTC Shooter is real? Will this be your next device? Drop us a comment below and let us know!


Sprint has been coy to say the least about information regarding a true successor to theEVO 4G, but the cat might just be out of the bag if leaked benchmark scores are to be believed. They show a “HTC Shooter” running on Sprint’s network along with Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread and a 960 x 540 resolution screen. In addition, the Adreno 220 GPU found on board is set to be paired with Qualcomm’s upcoming slate of dual-core Snapdragon processors – meaning that something along the line of the 1.2 GHz MSM8660 Snapdragon CPU is a real possibility for this device.

The benchmarks themselves are quite impressive, with the device scoring 22.7 fps on GLBenchmark 2.0 Egypt. For comparison’s sake, the Tegra 2-powered Atrix 4G got a score of 19.4 fps on the same test.

EVO people, please take short breaths. Sprint should be announcing a bunch of things at CTIA on March 22, so you won’t have to wait long to find out. Until then, take to theEVO’s section of the Android Central Forums. Please? [GLBenchmark via PocketNow]Thanks to MedioGringo for the tip!

During the day I work in graphic design and also do photography. By night I try to play with programming and code of all different types. I love the opportunity to write for the site and hope to see it grow as time goes on.

    Sprint needs to get with the game. I love my EVO but it is time for some new hardware.

  • Agreed! Would like to see Sprint step up their handset game with some awesome devices…
