Nexus 5 benchmarks reportedly appeared recently on GFXBench. Shown in the benchmarks are some specifications as well as the device’s codename.
According to the listing, the Nexus 5 sports a 2.3 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC working with an Adreno 330 GPU. It also shows the resolution at 1794 x 1080 pixels instead of 1920 x 1080. However, the listed resolution possibly takes into consideration the on-screen menu buttons. Also found among the specifications is Android Key Lime Pie instead of Android KitKat, the name of the “K” build of the operating system. Purportedly, the words “Android Key Lime Pie” was used by Google internally prior to its revelation of Android KitKat to keep the marketing deal under wraps. The listing likewise shows the Hammerhead codename, a word that had been floating around in the rumor mill to identify a possible new Nexus device.
It is worth pointing out that there is no mention of LG in the benchmark, although it is expected that LG is making the said device. Furthermore, the benchmark is not an official confirmation for the handset.
Prior to the alleged Nexus 5 benchmarks, various leaks and rumors have already surfaced regarding the device. For instance, a supposed press image of the Nexus 5 made its way online a few days ago. Other rumors claim that the device will have a 5-inch display, 2 GB of RAM, 16 or 32GB of internal storage, a 13 MP rear-facing camera with optical image stabilization, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0. 4G LTE, a 2300 mAh battery, and of course, Android 4.4 KitKat. Meanwhile, its price will be around $299 to $349.
Google may showcase the Nexus 5 for the first time on October 14. It may arrive in markets sometime during the early part of November.
