They confirmed that the handset will be powered by a 1GHz QSD8255 Snapdragon chipset, which features the Adreno 205 GPU. It will also have 512MB RAM, 512MB ROM and launch with Android 2.3.
The Neocore benchmark reported a much-improved score of 59.1fps, the last time the handset scored just 24.4fps highlighting that the software is probably being optimised constantly. It also scored an impressive Quadrant benchmark of 1,733.
