ByinLeaks & Rumors | July 17, 2013

HPHP might not be the first brand that comes to your mind when you think about smartphones, but it looks like the situation is about to change. If the latest rumors are to be believed, HP is ready to take another step in the smartphone world, this time with Android-powered device. A mysterious handset, called HP Brave, made an appearance in the benchmarking system known as AnTuTu, providing a handful of details together with a render of the rumored device.

HP denied the existence of the phone

HP BraveHP denied the existence of the phone, so there are two possibilities. Either the details are not entirely legitimate, or it is just HP’s marketing move to make for a bigger surprise later on. Which actually would not be such a huge surprise, especially since the company confirmed earlier this month its plans to release an Android-powered phone. Back to the HP Brave, apparently is being tested with Android 4.2, however, chances are that it will be launched with Android 4.3 out of the box.

The handset is rumored to feature a 4.5-inch 1600 x 900 display, a 14.5-megapixel rear camera, and a 5-megapixel front camera. The phone will allegedly be powered by a 2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor complete with Adreno 330 GPU and 2 GB of RAM. As you can see, the HP Brave appears to be kind of unusual, with its unprecedented screen resolution and 14.5-megapixel rear camera. Also, a 5-megapixel user-facing camera is not something you see very often, with most phones offering up to 2 megapixels.

Update: BGR.com just got a strong statement from the company. The render above the specs is a fabrication:

This is a fabrication. This is not an HP phone. HP will expand to additional mobility categories and form factors where we believe we can offer differentiated value to our customers. We will bring smartphones to market but are not giving a timetable.
