Benchmark exposes first 64-bit Samsung smartphone: entry-level SM-G510F

More than “true” octa-core power, 3D effects, fingerprint recognition and even Quad HD screen resolution, 64-bit processors are the next must-have feature of high-end smartphones. Make that low-end too, as it appears one of Samsung’s first devices to support the evolved architecture, maybe the absolute first, will be a fairly lackluster SM-G510F. The model number

Benchmark reveals Samsung SM-T255: new Galaxy Mega or Galaxy Tab 4 6.2?

Today seems to be an exceptionally prolific day for the sneaky, leaky, all-revealing folks behind mobile benchmark authority GFX Bench, as they’ve first exposed a positively dreamy forthcoming Nvidia-made high-end tablet and now an oddball new Samsung Galaxy family member.

Technically, this should greatly increase the credibility of “synthetic tests” on Samsung-made Android gadgets, as well as for

Presumed AT&T-bound Motorola Moto G benchmarked as ‘Peregrine’

Available for a while with Verizon and Boost Mobile and recently released on US Cellular and Aio Wireless, Motorola’s crazy cheap, crazy solid Moto G smartphone may soon add another name to an already pretty impressive roster of US network partners. As its GoPhone prepaid lineup continues to suffer in terms of media visibility and

Oppo Find 7 debut set for March 19, benchmark lists Full HD display, not 2K

Little-known China-based electronics manufacturer Oppo made its first waves in the Android landscape by partnering with CyanogenMod for the swiveling camera-toting N1 handheld, but it became clearer and clearer over the past few months that the 5.9-incher was just the beginning. Oppo’s next step in its quest to world domination? A little big thing called
