HP red to be a 16-inch Android device?

HP red spotted on GFXBenchAndroid has been making its way onto larger smartphones and tablets as the demand for devices with larger displays continues to grow. While smartphones with displays larger than 5 inches and tablets with 12-inch displays are no longer rarities, larger devices still are but Hewlett-Packard could be looking to change that with the HP red. Caught on the GFXBench website, the mysterious Android-powered device sports a 16-inch touchscreen display.

Here is what the benchmarking website reveals about the HP red’s specifications:

  • Processor: 2.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800
  • Operating system: Google Android 4.4.2 KitKat
  • Cellular connectivity: None
  • Other connectivity: GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC
  • Display: 16-inch QXGA (2048×1536)
  • RAM: 2GB
  • Internal storage: 16GB
  • Rear-facing camera: 7MP AF
  • Front-facing camera: 2MP
  • Sensors: Compass, gyroscope, ambient light sensor, pedometer, proximity sensor, barometer

It’s not immediately clear what form factor the HP red has. It could be an all-in-one, something HP tried last year with the HP Slate 21 All-In-One tablet. But specifications such as the pedometer and GPS suggest instead a more mobile device like a tablet or a convertible laptop.

As usual, a precautionary pinch of salt is required when looking at these details. The HP red may be a device that will never see the light of day or even a hoax.
