The HTC Vertex, as it’s referred to in the NenaMark test, will apparently feature a 1.3GHz Tegra 3 CPU. This quad-core processor would give the device similar performance to the excellent HTC One X smartphone.
Additionally, the benchmark tests appear to have unveiled a 1280 x 752 HD display for the Vertex. As for the size of that display, well, we don’t know for sure just yet. Given the presence of the Google Nexus 7 (which adopts a similar resolution) and the Stateside success of the Amazon Kindle Fire, we wouldn’t be surprised if seven proved to be the magic number for HTC.
Of course, the Taiwanese manufacturer has pedigree with the 7-inch tablet format thanks to the HTC Flyer – the company’s first ever tablet device. That used an innovative stylus system that allowed you to scrawl notes on the device like a physical notebook.
The only other information turned up by the NenaMark benchmarks is the presence of Android 4.0 – but then we weren’t very well expecting anything less, were we?
Earlier in the week HTC revealed that its next tablet would offer something “unique,” and despite this recent reveal we’re still nowhere closer to finding out what that means. Stay tuned for more as we hear it.
