The results of a benchmark test of a new Android tablet from Pegatron have just been divulged online. What is surprising, however, is that the device called the Pegatron E-Tab 4G, has never been announced. A Taiwanese firm, Pegatron manufactures devices and electronic parts such as tablets, notebooks, LCD TVs, game consoles for other companies such as Asustek. It is similar to Foxconn and Wistron.
According to the benchmarks test from two separate websites, Nenamark and GLBenchmark, the Pegatron E-Tab 4G carries a 1.4 GHz quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS. Its display has a resolution of 1280 x 752 in the benchmark test, but is possibly 1280 x 800 pixels in the actual screen. As the tablet’s name carries the word 4G, it may be assumed that it also offers LTE connectivity.
Benchmark tests assess the performance of a device by running several tests on it. The tests give scores or ratings that quantify the speed and efficiency of a device. The Pegatron E-Tab 4G fared quite well in the Nenamark benchmark test, with its minimum, average, and maximum being all 48.10. The GLBenchmark test also shows good results. Of course, these are not surprising granted that the Pegatron E-Tab 4G has a quad-core Tegra 3 chip under the hood.
The benchmark tests only reveal this much about the mysterious device, and the company itself is silent on the matter. Besides, it is still unknown whether this device will even make it to the market. If it does, it is very likely that it will end up under a different brand name.
This is not the first time that a device showed up in online benchmarking tests before it is unveiled to the public. The same thing happened to the Lenovo IdeaTab/LePad K2, and the Acer Iconia Tab A700, whose benchmark tests and some specifications were leaked months before their official launch.
