HP Red Gets Benchmarked, Sports 16 Screen And Runs Android

Hewlett Packard (HP) is currently in the process of testing a recent Android device, though this isn't a low-discontinue tablet like most of the company's such offerings in recent times.

The Hewlett Packard (HP) Red has been put through the paces of GFXBench recently, and as a consequence we now know a small bit about its specs.

And they are pretty puzzling. The Red runs Android 4.4.2 KitKat, and it's powered by the elegant Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset with a 2.3 Giga Hertz (GHz) quad-core CPU. It has 2GB of Random-Access Memory (RAM) and 16GB of internal storage space.

Its rear capturing camera is most likely an 8MP unit, while the front-facing snapper has to create do with 2MP resolution.

So up until now, you might be thinking that this could very well be a smartphone or a tablet. Well, not quite. See, the Hewlett Packard (HP) Red has a 16-inch classy screen (with 2048x1536 resolution).

And that's a bit baffling. What could this be, then? A huge tablet? A convertible laptop of some sort? An All-in-One desktop computer? Perhaps there's a chance that it's any of the above, but nothing is certain correct now.

What makes things even more complicated (and seems to invalidate the 'desktop' theory) is that the Hewlett Packard (HP) Red has an accelerometer, barometer, compass, NFC, pedometer, proximity sensor, and even GPS. While some of those may be of some utilize in a tabletop computer, some would create no sense in such a product.

Obviously, there's a small possibility that GFXBench got confused and listed too many sensors, or this could simply be an experiment that never sees the light of day. Should it, though? Is a 16" Android device something people would actually buy? We'll only find out if Hewlett Packard (HP) decides to officially out the Red.
