Mystery LG device spotted on benchmarks, could it be the upcoming Nexus phone?

It’s common knowledge at this point that LG is prepping the launch of a Nexus phone for later this year, while Huawei also has a Nexus phone of its own in the making. And now, a benchmark database on Geekbench might have just revealed the upcoming LG Nexus handset sporting the model number LG-F600L.

The handset is shown to be carrying the Snapdragon 808 SoC, which is the same chipset that’s also used on the G4 handset. This is slightly odd as the Huawei Nexus is rumored to be featuring a Snapdragon 820 SoC, which is an advanced version of the Snapdragon 810.

The handset is also shown to be packing 4GB of RAM by default, much like the Huawei Nexus is rumored to be. All things considered, it’s very likely that this is just another prototype device being tested in LG’s labs, so we might be reading too much into it.

The benchmark listing also reveals that the smartphone is running Android 5.1.1 by default, which is a given for any new smartphone that’s launching in the foreseeable future, although we would see an even newer version of Android with a Nexus phone. We’re taking this leak with a pinch of salt for now as there’s not enough data to prove the existence of this particular device. What do you think?
