HTC recently unveiled the Desire HD, along with the Desire Z, at a London conference. They showed us how beautiful the phone is, especially running on the newest, enhanced version of Sense UI. And now we get some confirmation that the handset has a beast of an engine.
HDblog.it has posted benchmarks of the Desire HD, using the Neocore performance test. Living up to the potential of its second-generation Snapdragon CPU, a 1GHz Qualcomm MSD 8255, the Desire HD outshines a Nexus One running Android 2.2, the previous champion in these contests. Indeed, the HTC Desire HD is currently the fastest Android phone.
In the graphics performance test, its Adrena 205 GPU gives it a big boost, but it still comes second to the Samsung Galaxy S with a PowerVR SGX 540 GPU.
