Qualcomm Snapdragon 805-powered Windows tablet shows up on GFXBench
Windows tablets powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon chipsets are not a common sight nowadays, but this could change earlier than expected. A new ARM-based Windows 10 tablet could hit the market later this year, but the recent listing spotted on GFXBench leaves a lot of gaps that need to be filled.
The rumor mill offers multiple variants of a single story, as usual. The device listed as "Qualcomm LiQUID" is expected to be a successor to the Microsoft Surface RT or the Nokia Lumia 2520. The OS field only says "WINDOWS" but Windows 10 is a rather safe guess. The 10.1-inch device has a generous resolution of 2,560X1,440 pixels and 64 GB internal storage space, listed as 55 GB. No front and back cameras seem to be present in the device benchmarked, so most chances are this is an early prototype.
Since Microsoft officials did not comment anything about such a tablet, remains to see what happens next. In the end, this may not become a product at all or may hit the market under the banner of a completely different company (Acer already has an entire family of devices called Liquid).
