Nexus X benchmarks confirm internals and that Android L is version 5.0
The news keeps coming quickly these days. We now know that the so-called Nexus 6 will most likely be called the Nexus X. We know that it is based on the Moto S (Shamu), meaning it has a 5.9-inch 1440x2560 (2K) display. And, we are getting evidence that Android L will be nicknamed Lemon Meringue Pie. Now, we're getting more info via benchmarks.
The leak comes once again from TKTechNews who has gotten screenshots of the Nexus X Antutu results. The results confirm some items that we have known, like the Snapdragon 805 (APQ8084) processor clocked at 2.7GHz, the 3GB of RAM, the display resolution, and the 13-megapixel rear camera. The odd thing about the benchmarks is actually the score of 35,430, which is decidedly low for a Snapdragon 805. For comparison, the Snapdragon 801-powered LG G3 has a score of 39,132.
The other interesting note is that the benchmarks label Android L to be version 5.0. This isn't exactly a surprise, because Google usually saves full number updates for times when Android gets a visual overhaul, and that is exactly what is coming with Material Design. But, it's nice to see some confirmation.
