Mystery HTC Phone Scores 36,000 On AnTuTu, Is This The M8?

An announced HTC phone took the AnTuTu challenge, only to emerge with flying colors. A score of 36,000 is very respectable, and beats almost every flagship Smartphone by every top OEM from across the globe. Could we be looking at the first benchmark of the HTC M8?

HTC M8 is the internal codename for the company's successor to M7 (One). This confirms that the M8 is nothing else but HTC's flagship Smartphone for 2014. Alleged specifications include a 5-inch display, new UltraPixel camera, similar design elements as the One and a Snapdragon 800 chipset. Looking at the score, it is likely that HTC is using the new MSM8974AB variant of Qualcomm's high-end mobile SoC, which features improved memory bandwidth, faster GPU clock speeds and slightly higher CPU core frequency as well.

Also, reports suggest that the HTC M8 will come with Android 4.4 KitKat out-of-the-box, and will be the first HTC device to ship with Sense 6.0 skin.
