An upcoming LeEco smartphone has appeared in the benchmark database with scores around 10 percent higher than the existing Snapdragon 820 SoC.

LeEco announced earlier this year that the Le Max Pro would be one of the very first consumer smartphones to sport the new Snapdragon 820 SoC. Now, the same Chinese manufacturer may once again be the first out of the gate with the updated Snapdragon 821/823 SoC. A recent AnTuTu entry shows that the LeEco "Lex720" is sporting the unannounced Snapdragon MSM8996PRO and its score highly suggests an upgraded or overclocked version of the Snapdragon 820.

Most flagship devices as of 2016 are scoring an average of 140000 points on AnTuTu including the HTC 10. The leaked LeEco benchmark, however, shows 154272 points in the same benchmark to represent about a 10 percent increase. Perhaps coincidentally, the rumored Snapdragon 821/823 is expected to be an overclocked Snapdragon 820 from 2.15 GHz to 2.5 GHz, so the rough 10 percent jump in raw performance sounds about right.

Whether or not the higher clock rates would have a tangible effect on core temperature remains unknown. A potential candidate for the Snapdragon 821/823 other than the LeEco would be the unannounced Samsung Galaxy Note 7 that is expected to come this August and the rumored Xiaomi Mi 5 refresh.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
