Nexus 8.9 Antutu benchmarks leak, and suggest LTE?
We've been getting a lot more information on the upcoming Motorola-made Nexus X smartphone than we have about the HTC-made Nexus 8.9 tablet; but, the floodgates on the Nexus tablet leaks seem to be cracking open a bit. After getting a CPU-Z report from a Nexus 8.9, TKTechNews has gotten an Antutu benchmark leak for the device as well.

The Antutu leak once again shows the tablet running a Tegra K1 Denver, which is a 64-bit beast of a chip, and the 1440x2560 display resolution. It appears to add more confirmation that Android L will be version 5.0, even though we still don't know if it will be Lemon Meringue Pie, Laffy Taffy, Lindt, or something else. The benchmark leak also shows the benchmarks obviously, and the tablet scored a 45,923 on the test, which is one of the best scores you're likely to see on any new device coming out.  

The strangest thing about the leak is that it includes an IMEI number (International Mobile Station Equipment Identity), which is only given to devices that have cellular connectivity. It wouldn't be new for a Nexus tablet to have LTE, but Google has tended to release the Wi-Fi only models first, and add in the cellular-capable models a few later. Maybe that is going to change this year.

So there will be 64bit handsets.

I seriously doubt that Google would only move forward on tablets.

Exciting times, can't wait,.. 70 odd days to go.

In my opinion, I am thinking now that perhaps one handset will be 32 an other will be 64.

Tegra, not sure about it's thermal requirements, it may need the larger footprint of the supposed 5.9 to able it to fly at it's fullest potential.

I honestly think Google is fogging it's leaks to fool tech sites and avoid stealing sales from the N4.

yup! you got a point... google is already in favorable terms with its largest os user, thats why they persueded samsung last year and resulted in a lack of motivation from samsung to push first tizan powered phone... I agree that google will never want to take any sale away from note 4

Bang on friend.
How to evolve an not cannibalize their supporting OEMs too much.

HTC has been getting ready to dump low end 64 all over coming up, why would they, get the upper hand over all else, it don't add up.

may be someone will bring anti trust or anti competitive suit bcoz android L is not available for others. nexus x will be the first one... no other device have such access and many oems will be unhappy with this practice... yeah! not in favor of google to get the upper hand

I'd be pretty sure all the OEM have dissected L to its smallest bits and are preparing for the inevitable outcome of 64.

Though, can the behemoths respond fast enough, HTC seems to be ready, but can SS an LG get their newest wares out without killing their current handsets sales?

Sorry to the community for so many postings from myself, I am beside myself with the theories an excitement of things to come.

They both have more resources than HTC, there is no doubt that they will be ready

70 days? Source please?

70 odd days to go, there about.

Around Hallow eve, same as priors is my reasoning.

No source, but there is precedent.

Hope this one doesn't have the daily reboot flaw of the current Nexuses. Its a real PITA trying to work on a device that reboots randomly, and often. And hopefully they finally address the stutter during scrolling and slow performance - I think Android L is supposed to do that by replacing Dalvik though.

I've heard that issue before but I do not see it on my tablets ftr.
Nor do I have it on L.

I wish i could tell you the magic cure to avoid that.

Have you used a nexus 7 2012? Mine stutters most of the time

15. AfterShock (Posts: 2800; Member since: 02 Nov 2012)


Yeah, i have two older (2012) models, they were an are junk.
2013 fixed many of the stutters an issues caused by the 2012 model.

I have two nexus devices (5 and 7) and I think in one year had only random reboots. But it never stutters during scrolling or have slow performance.
I seriously wonder who spread that rumors.

I meant: only 2 random reboots (well and some crashes, but that´s how the game is played when you are constantly fiddling with your devices)

Which Nexus devices are you talking about? I'm running a N5 on ART and have never randomly rebooted.

Enough with this 64bit nonsense. Am using an iPhone 5s and it doesn't feel any different from the 32 bit iPhone 5. If you ask me it's the same old sh*t just change in numbers.

yeah, thats what we are saying about iphone from long time... i.e. no benefit of 64bit with 1gb ram, the difference wil not be noticeable but ifans always back fire with heated comments... I think apple launched 5s with 64bit as a test device, by this way they killed many birds with one stone

Anyone who says "64bit means nothing with 1gb RAM" doesn't know much about ARM chips. Learn about mobile SoC's.

64 bit ARM comes with a new instructions that increase performance by 30% with...

NO BATTERY COST. More performance with no battery cost = more battery life. Faster race-to-sleep preserves battery life.

In short. You're wrong about 64bit.

Have anyone noticed that the navigation buttons aren't like what we have seen in L preview? Also the status bar icons look like android 4.0 to 4.4.

46000 thousands a bit low? In which book?
It´s just the higher score I have ever seen posted in Antutu. Tegra K1 32bit scores 41000 it´s around the best in the market right now.
And if we take into account that Antutu favors higher number of cores getting 46000 with only 2 is nothing short of impressive!

This is Antutu v5 beta which is on a different scale to v4 scores

My Oneplus One scores 47,495 on v5 but only 38k or so on v4

Given the high resolution of the screen it's a good score

Even though i cant buy it at any price but i would be a lot happier if it is priced under $400 then it will beat the sh*t out of every other competitor.I just wonder how well the google would control tegra k1 as it is very fast but it can give overheating problem too.This chip is not that much easy to handle.

In the past nvidia are using vanilla ARM core. This one will be using nvidia own custom core. So we can't just say this will be power hungry like past version of tegra.

Looks fake with the old navigation buttons!

Just so folks know.

Denver K1 is DUAL CORE.

There's also a very high chance it maxes out the graphic portion of the test like the 5S maxed out the Graphics test in Antutu v4.
