Allegedly, official Nexus 6 or Nexus X benchmark scores, specifications and the operating system version have surfaced. The Nexus 6 is going to be the successor of the Nexus 5, Google’s current flagship device. The Nexus 5 has had good sales thanks to great specifications it has and also because of the low price.
The Nexus 5 is currently the best and cheapest phone you can buy for those high-end specifications. However, the Nexus 5 is almost one year old now and its successor, the Nexus 6 or Nexus X is just around the corner. And as you are used to, there will be many leaks of the phone before the official release.
This time, screenshots showing benchmark scores have showed up and they tell us some of the most important details about the upcoming Nexus device. Based on the screenshots, the Nexus 6 will have a 2K QHD display with the resolution of 1440×2560 pixels.
It has 3 GB RAM and the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 chipset with Adreno 420 GPU. The processor is clocked at 2.7 GHz, the highest frequency for an Android smartphone. It has 32 GB of internal memory storage from which only 29 GB are usable because 3 GB are taken by the operating system.
Speaking of the operating system, the Nexus 6 will come with Android L. The benchmark screenshot says Android version is 5.0 which is the version announced during Google I/O. The phone will have a better camera than the Nexus 5. It will have a 13 MP rear camera sensor.
One thing to notice is that the benchmark score is very low for a fast processor like the Snapdragon 805. As seen from the pictures, the score is only 35,000 which is lower than the score of the LG G3 which received 39,000 points, even though it has the Snapdragon 801 chipset.
