Lenovo K6 Emerges with Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 Processor

Chinese mobile phone maker Lenovo is reportedly getting ready for the launch of its own smartphone powered by the powerful Snapdragon 800 processor, and the device has already leaked online under the codename of K6.

The handset, reportedly set to arrive on shelves with dual-SIM capabilities (and also known as X910, it seems), has been spotted on Lenovo’s Chinese forum, and can be admired the photos attached to this post. As Engadget notes, one of the leaked images with the yet unannounced device show it as packing a MSM8974 chip inside, with Adreno 330 GPU, as well as a 1920 x 1080-pixel display, which might be a 5-inch screen.

No other details on the smartphone have been provided for the time being, and its availability timeframe is still unknown, though chances are that we won’t see it released outside China.

Nokia’s 6-Inch Handset Screen Leaked, Alleged Specs Also Unveiled

Finnish mobile phone maker Nokia has been long rumored to plan the launch of a large Windows Phone 8 smartphone before the end of this year, and some more details on the handset are now available, complemented by a leaked photo that allegedly shows the device’s screen.

The leaked photo, available courtesy of Weibo user @ictech, shows that the smartphone will arrive on shelves with a very thin bezel, and also confirms that it will be a Windows Phone handset, given the usual buttons placed beneath the screen. As WMPoweruser notes, the photo shows a production-ready pane, and chances are that Nokia is already working on having some prototype units up and running while planning the phone’s launch for the end of the year. According to a recent post on This Is Nokia, the hardware specs of the smartphone also leaked online, though we’ll take them with a big chunk of salt for the time being, as we’re waiting for more solid details on the matter to arrive.

Nokia will reportedly pack the handset with a full HD screen, and will also include a Snapdragon 800 processor inside, with Adreno 330 GPU. Furthermore, the 6-inch smartphone is expected to sport at least 32GB of internal memory, as well as 3000mAh battery. The back camera might be either a 13-megapixel one or a 41MP PureView sensor, featuring full HD video recording capabilities, or even 4K video shooting features, should the Snapdragon 800 processor make it inside it. Supposedly set to land in the United States exclusively on the network of Verizon Wireless, the smartphone might also be waterproof, while featuring a very slim design, maybe even thinner than the Lumia 925.

Most probably, the upcoming 6-inch Nokia smartphone will run under Windows Phone 8 GRD3, which has already been said to bring along support for larger, higher-resolution screens, and for more powerful processors. However, don’t get your hopes too high on this device, at least not until its specs are confirmed.

AMD A10-6800K Makes New World Record, Overclocked to 8.2 GHz

“The Stilt” is the name of a Finnish group of Overclockers. Remember it because they've just set a new world record.

Naturally, I'm talking about the world record for CPU overclocking. Using an AMD A10-6800K accelerated processing unit, they managed to push the frequency all the way up to 8.2 GHz. They achieved the result (8203.01 MHz) by setting the bus clock at 130.21 MHz and the multiplier at 63x. The lower core voltage was at 1.968 volts the entire time.

Furthermore, thanks to an x87 patch, the A10-6800K managed to post better SuperPi scores. Seeing as how The Stilt previously scored a record 8000.48 MHz with a bus clock of 126.99 MHz and applying 2.008 volts to the CPU, this later feat is quite the jump. Check out the filing on HWBot.org for more.
