This CES made LeTV the first smartphone manufacturer to use Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 820 SoC on their newly announced LeTV Le Max Pro. Non of the top players like LG, Samsung, Sony, Huawei, etc were able to use it first on their devices. As per the rumours, Xiaomi’s flagship for this year, the Mi 5 will be the 2nd to use Snapdragon 820 SoC. But what we came across today, while browsing through Geekbench database, is a device which appeared with a strange name “RAIN RAIN A3000”.
This unknown device is rocking 4GB of RAM but the interesting point to note here is the “revision 2” in the Processor ID. Looks like this device is using a revised version of Snapdragon 820 SoC because if you look for any other device in Geekbench, Xiaomi Mi 5 for example, you will find Mi 5 running on “revision 1”. The benchmark doesn’t reveal about the manufacturer behind this device, other than just a strange name “RAIN RAIN A3000” which is more likely to be the codename of this device. This unknown device is using a revised version of Snapdragon 820 Soc while Xiaomi Mi 5 and LeTV Le Max Pro are on “revision 1”.
Currently, there is no info regarding what changes the revised version of Snapdragon 820 brings to the table, but we might see something comping up in near future.
