Qualcomm LiQUID with Snapdragon 805, Adreno 420, Windows Tested

Now here’s something interesting. Back in November, Qualcomm announced a new version of its Snapdragon 800 processor, the Snapdragon 805 tablet processor capable of handling Ultra HD (4K) video playing on a tablet or streamed to a TV.

Anyway some evidence of a Windows device running the above-mentioned 4K-ready tablet processor has been uncovered in the lofty GFXBench database. A device called “Qualcomm LiQUID” has been spotted there, listed with Adreno 420, and a cropped screen with 1422 x 800 screen resolution (full resolution might be 2560 x 1440 pixels). There’s no mention per se of Snapdragon 805, but currently the Adreno 420 is married to the Snapdragon 805 process that supports 4K resolution. Furthermore, the device in question runs Windows OS, so this could as well be Windows Phone 8.1 or Windows RT. The GFXBench doesn't show information about the device’s manufacturer, so there's no information regarding this aspect.

Anyway, the idea of a Snapdragon 805 processor testing in combination with a 2K display (?) on a Windows device seems pretty interesting and something lots of us could be looking towards. A previous leak showed us Windows Phone could support 2K screen (double 1080P) resolution, so maybe a handset is incoming. On the other hand, Qualcomm LiQUID could turn out to a tablet too.
