Sony Android-powered ‘V150’ benchmark results show up
Sony is working on a new mobile device and the benchmark stats are looking good
Sony is working on a new mystery device, codenamed at the V150, and it's shown up in NenaMark benchmarking stats looking pretty smart indeed.
It's not clear whether this will be a phone handset, possibly in the Xperia line, or a new tablet following on from the Sony Tablet P and Sony Tablet S devices launched in 2011.
We can see from the results that it's powered by Nvidia's Tegra 3 quad core chipset with a 1.4GHz clock speed and runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS). It also looks like it'll be boasting an HD display with a 1280×752 pixel resolution.
In terms of how the V150 ranked on the NenaMark test it got a score of 59.70. For context, the Asus Transformer Prime, which we've seen first hand and is one rapid piece of hardware, consistently scored around the 50 mark.
So yeah, the V150 has some fairly competitive performance by the sound of things. It'd be nice to see Sony push the boat out on the tablet front and with the new iPad 3 out in the wild there's every reason to try and best it.
We've been consistently impressed by some of the more recent Xperia phones, but while the S and P tablets were very nicely designed in our view, in terms of power, while adequate, they weren't anything special.
