After being spotted in a couple of images last week, Google’s much-anticipated next Nexus smartphone, expected to be called the Nexus 6 or Nexus X, has now been allegedly spotted in Geekbench benchmark test results.
First spotted by Phonearena, the Geekbench 2 benchmark test results purportedly show the yet-to-be-announced ‘Nexus X “Shamu”‘, thought to be the codename of the next Nexus smartphone, pitted against its competitors such as iPhone 6, Samsung Galaxy S5, LG G3, HTC One (M8), Samsung Galaxy Note 3, and iPhone 5s.
As per the test results, the alleged Nexus 6 is seen scoring impressively compared to all the high-end Android flagships. However, the rumoured next Nexus smartphone is seen scoring less (1040) than the new iPhone 6 (1630) and iPhone 5s (1323) in the Geekbench 3.2 single-core test.
In the Geekbench 3.2 multi-core tests, the ‘Nexus X “Shamu”‘ aka Nexus 6 appears to be the fastest smartphone leaving behind phones such as iPhone 6, Galaxy S5, and HTC One (M8) with a score of 3199. What’s more is that the closest competitor to the alleged Nexus 6 is last year’s Galaxy Note 3, which scored 2998.
Phonearena points out that early Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Geekbench results are comparable to the Nexus X “Shamu” aka Nexus 6.
The purported Geekbench listing also lists some of the details about the Nexus 6 such as Android L OS, quad-core Qualcomm chipset clocked at 2.65GHz, and 3GB of RAM (2970MB).
