Today we have some excellent news for all you PC and Android enthusiasts. After years and years of being one of the go-to programs on desktops, CPU-Z has arrived for Android. The popular tool is extremely useful in many usage scenarios and will give you important info about the CPU (processor) of your PC, and in this case, or Android devices.

Today the company CPUID, has officially launched their app on Android in beta form, but it is available to everyone as we speak. Myself being a huge PC enthusiast I’ve used CPU-Z for years and years of overclocking and watercooling my quad-core Intel processors and more. I’m excited to see this level of detail come to Android.

Just like Quadrant, AnTuTu and others CPU-Z will show you a detailed breakdown of your device. Information such as the SoC (system on chip) like Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 600. You’ll get the name, architecture, speeds (of each core) and much more. It’s interesting to boot it up and see my Galaxy S4 only using one of the four cores, while only running around 1.2 Ghz instead of the 1.9 GHz spec. Talk about battery saving technology at work!

As you can see above, CPU-Z gives you a wide list of details about your Android smartphone and tablet. From battery information, health and temp, to all the sensors and more. Here’s the full list below:

– SoC (System On Chip) name, architecture, clock speed for each core
– System information : device brand & model, screen resolution, RAM, storage.
– Battery information : level, status, temperature
– Sensors

If you’ve wanted to see what’s under the hood on your smartphone, this app is a great way to do just that. Sadly it only supports Android 3.0 and above, so Gingerbread users need not apply. Get it from the link today and enjoy. Enthusiasts, don’t go water-cooling your smartphone just yet.
