K-Touch Hornet 2 Quad-core Benchmarks and sample photos

Earlier today I posted some details of K-touch’s new phone the Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core K-Touch Hornet 2! While we knew the phone’s specification and could have a good guess at just how well this low-cost quad-core phone would perform we no longer need to as benchmarks have been posted and they are impressive!

As noted earlier the K-touch Hornet 2 uses the same quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 CPU as the popular, and very powerful, HTC One X. So we were expecting to see some pretty impressive performance results with this phone and we haven’t been let down!

Chinese electronics site PConline have managed to get a K-Touch Hornet 2 quad-core and performed a full review including various tests. You can see to full review here, however I’ve posted their performance results below!


K-Touch Hornet 2 Benchmarks

The K-touch Hornet 2’s quad-core CPU is running at 1.5Ghz with 1GB RAM and after running AnTuTu on this $250 phone we can see it manages to score an extremely impressive 12015! Which is just slightly below current flagship phones from Samsung and HTC! Pretty impressive for a phone which costs this much!

Quadrant results are even better with the K-Touch Hornet 2 managing to score 4770 which is even better than the similarity spec’d HTC One X. Vellamo scores at 2142 which again is around the same as the much costlier HTC One X!

While we were pretty certain the K-Touch Hornet 2 would perform well I didn’t expect that it would prove to be as powerful as it has!

K-Touch Hornet 2 Phone Samples

After going through the specification this morning the only area which really gave us any cause for concern (other than the battery size and the girth of the phone) was the rear camera which is only a 5 mega-pixel unit, rather than the more common  8 mega-pixel units we are more accustomed to seeing.

k-touch hornet 2 battery

Speaking of the battery it has been commented that the 1800maH battery in the K-Touch Hornet 2 is acceptable for those of us who aren’t ‘power users’ and we should see a full days worth of use out of one charge. Gamers and more power-hungry users might want to carry a spare battery with them!

    This looks awesome. The camera is a lot more better than what I expected, and the price is just amazing. Can’t wait for it to come out.

    I try to fine this phone but the prices are high. Almost 400…

    • October 5, 2012

      Yep that’s the problem with most online Chinese resellers! $400 is way too much, you could get an S3 or even an iPhone 5 for similar!

    So they designed a quad core phone for not so power user’s? A 1800mAh battery, Seriously? Looks like all Chinese want save $5 on battery .

      Seems a little silly doesn’t it? I would expect at least a 2100 unit like the HTC One X

    Hello, are there different configurations for this phone? less/more speed clock, mem, etc?

    Courage edition? hornet 2? bumblebee 2?

    The chinese people don´t know the specs!

    There are two versions of this phone, one costs double but has 16gb rom and 720P screen, that is the Hornet 2 version. There may be further differences, as Fasttech lists different frequencies for the cheaper version just the usual wcdma 850/2100 and quad gsm. I would be surprised if you could find a quad core with 5 wcdma frequencies for $150.

      I think they renamed the hornet 2 as the v8. Every other spec is spot on.
