A new and mysterious Windows Phone device hit the GFXBench benchmark site. Dubbed the HP Falcon, the handset just got listed on the site sporting the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 Chipset.


The alleged handset which we are still unsure if it’s really coming from HP but if it does what the benchmark result is suggesting then it will be one of the company’s first Windows 10 powered handsets since their last venture on Windows ecosystem was during the days of Windows Mobile 6.5 and its predecessors.

From the said benchmark listing, the mysterious handset will have a 5.8-inch QHD display at 2560 x 1440 resolutions. However with known discrepancies with benchmark results in the past, we’re still looking for more information regarding the handset’s display. It also house a gigabyte of RAM and 43 GB of storage which is surprisingly not a standard in today’s devices. Considering it will indeed come with a QHD display and a hefty processor inside it, these specs from the benchmark results does need more clarifications. It could also be that these figures are the one’s used by the system during operation or what is left for users after the system have utilized them.

While the underlying specs are a mixed bag of things, the Camera configuration of the handset comes in a pretty much inclined to a seemingly flagship specs with a 20 Megapixel sensor on the back while a 12 Megapixel shooter dominates the front.

So far, that’ all we have for now but we are not completely sure about the details here as there were no news about HP working on a Windows 10 Mobile handset. Some experts suggest that this might just be a codename in some sense for a next Lumia device which is said to include features that performs more than what the Lumia 950 XL is capable of. Though we’ve thought on so many possible explanation in regards to the  benchmark listing but what is real is yet to be unveiled.
