Lumia 940 shows up at GFXBench with Snapdragon 808 processor. Confirmed specifications.

Lumia 940Lumia 940 has started showing up in more places after a display frame leak yesterday. We received a tip from one of our regular tipsters last night about a Hexa-Core Lumia  with product code RM-1106 appearing on GFXBench. We also tried to be in touch with our regular sources about the device in question and it seems that we are having a look at Lumia 940, that we have earlier posted about. The GFXBench and our sources confirm following specs for Lumia 940.

Display: 2560×1440 resolution, 5.2-inch. (Benchmark lists its a 1920×1080, but we can confirm that it is a crop and not the actual resolution that shows up in GFXBench

Processor: Hexa-Core Snapdragon 808 with Adreno 430 (??)  GPU. This is bit surprising as Hexa-core Snapdragon 808 comes with Adreno 418 or Qualcomm will make it possible in future?

Memory: 3 GB RAM (Again don’t get confused by the 1.5 GB in benchmark as it refers to free memory at the time of benchmark test)


Rear Camera: 20 MP Pureview (Again, the resolution of 4992 x 3744 shown in the above screenshot is the 4:3 image resolution and if you have a Lumia 930 you can check that you will get 4:3 full-size images with similar dimensions)

Storage: 32 GB

MicroSD card slot

Short Pulse variable-tone LED Flash

Continuum for Phones support (Via accessory)

Iris Scanner

USB Type-C & Dual-Role support

Wireless charging support

    Something’s not right here… The Snapdragon 808 uses an ARM v8 instruction set… the specs above clearly show ARM v7. That, and the fact the display shown as 1920 x 1080 would seem to indicate you’re looking at a SD 615, possibly in decidedly upper midrange Lumia 840. As for the Adreno 430…. say what?

  • javid

    what if this is not a 940 or 940XL? See the display resolution… what if this is actually the 830 successor? 840?

  • DH Dog

    What if that’s a S810 with 2 cores off because of the heating issue?

    • Kamal

      I would rather put faith in the idea of Snapdragon 808 + Adreno 430 as “possible in future”.

      • DH Dog

        Theoretically, that combination should be better mainly because of the LPDDR4. Or maybe Qualcomm has some 808v2/809 with that configuration…

        • Ron

          You may be right, the OS can ‘allow’ to activate only 6 cores for smaller devices like the 940 and 8 cores for bigger devices like the 940XL. This good because the 430 GPU is much better than the 418.

    see the ram and rear camera details in the above image. it is listed as 1.5gb and 17mp respectively. could that be the lumia 940? the lumia 940 is said to come with 3gb of ram and 20mp of rear camera isnt it?

  • shady

    can we assume the 940 XL will be the same specs except a 5.7″ screen?

    • Kamal

      Almost, but I hear the processor may be different. Will share more about it soon.

      • shady

        Thanks for the Info! I’m definitely getting the 940 XL. Do you think there will be another 6″ device like the 1520?

        • Kamal

          Nopes, a 6-incher is not coming.

          • shady

            any word on a sd card slot for the 940/940 XL?

            • Kamal

              Yes, it should be :).
