While in May we heard about LG and Huawei working on two different Google Nexushandsets, which are expected by the end of this year, a new report now points to the alleged listing of the LG-made Nexus handset on AnTuTu benchmarks.
According to the AnTuTu 5.7.1 benchmark results, one of the models named “Google Nexus 5 2015 API 22-85530” received a score of 85530, which is the highest in any handset we have seen until now. The score is said to have come from the LG-made version of a new Google Nexus 5, reportedly called the Google Nexus 5 (2015).
Interestingly, the scorecard image, which was first posted by Russian website Mobiletelefone, also shows the smartphone featuring a full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) resolution display. This however, is a downgrade form the current and the latest Nexus 6, which sports a QHD (1440×2560 pixels) resolution display. Also tipped here is that Google might stick with 5-inch display size and the ‘Google Nexus 5 (2015)’ moniker. Perhaps, the Huawei-made Nexus, which is said to be the bigger out of the two, might come with a better resolution on its larger display.
As per previous reports, the LG-made Nexus handset, also codenamed ‘Bullhead’, will sport a 5.2-inch display and a 2700mAh battery. The firm is also being tipped to include the hexa-core Snapdragon 808 SoC. Google has previously joined hands with LG for both Nexus 4 and Nexus 5.
As for the rumoured Huawei-made Nexus smartphone, said to be codenamed ‘Angler’, the phablet will reportedly feature a larger 5.7-inch display and might use Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC. A 3500mAh battery is also being said to be included. A Huawei employee last month confirmed that the Chinese company is working with Google for the upcoming Nexus smartphone.
