Huawei Nexus 6 benchmark test reveals Snapdragon 810 SoC, 3GB of RAM and Android 6.0

A phone called the Huawei angler was recently run through the GeekBench benchmark test. The angler happens to be a code name for the manufacturer's upcoming Nexus device. The test revealed that the Snapdragon 810 SoC is driving the stock Android handset, which will include an octa-core CPU (which ran at 1.55GHz during the test) and the Adreno 430 GPU. Also revealed by the test was the news that the handset will sport 3GB of RAM.

On GeekBench, the Huawei Nexus 6 had a single-core score of 1156, with a multi-core tally of 3641. That is pretty close to the score produced by the LG built Nexus 5X. The latter, powered by the Snapdragon 808 SoC and its hexa-core CPU, had a single-core score of 1082 and a multi-core score of 3298 during the summer.

One last bit of news derived from the Huawei Nexus 6's GeekBench test. As you might expect, Android 6.0 will be pre-installed. Both the Nexus 5X and the Huawei Nexus 6 are expected to be unveiled on September 29th.

Thanks for the tip!

Disappointing results. Looks like that S810 is throttled.

The S810 has ruined android phones for me this year. Samsung, please start selling your chips to android manufacturers. I refuse to purchase a hot plate.

Samsung allows other manufacturers to use Exynos chips but no one other than Meizu does it because they don't want to help their biggest rival.

That's just silly. Even Apple buys a sh!t-ton of parts from Samsung. The other OEM's probably got a great deal on the 810's due to the fiasco.

There's a difference between buying memory chips, using Samsung foundries for Apple's own SoCs, and using Samsung's own flagship SoC. The Exynos is part of Sammy's competitive edge.

True, and Samsung processors aren't cheap to begin with. Even Samsung doesn't put them in every single device they make.

hey mate if you go through some of the samsung forums you would notice people complaining about overheating in their galaxy s6/edge (sometimes even more than the 810) please stop assuming samsung phones are perfect

How about YOU stop assuming that we assume Samsung chips are perfect. But without a doubt, there are far less heating concerns with samsung right now compared to Qualcomm.

But Samsung chips are close to perfect in 2015. It's been king since the S6 came out months ago. And it doesn't look like nothing will challenge it in the Android space until next year. But then again Samsung may use the SD820 in the S7 to bring back SD cards.

And you're basing this on...? Heresay? Not ONE CREDIBLE SOURCE has stated that the S line or Note line this year overheats with their Exynos chips. Just look at your comment troll....its half-hearted....probably even you haven't gone through those forums yourself...Get a Life

True.. I had the s6 and it lagged and heated up more than any phone I had before. With that being said my s6 edge plus has been amazing

From another perspective, the SD810 has actually driven fierce competition at the high-midrange where the SD808 is being used quite liberally. The high-end's frustration has been a boon for the "upper middle-class" as it were.

Better throttled than medium-well. Qualcomm has a lot riding on that SD820 next its entire reputation.

Disappointing is an understatement, those results are pathetic.

Root it and unthrottle it. Problem solved. It will preform better. If best is s issue, use a cover. I don't understand, its only quarter of the back section which heats up. What's the big deal?

looks like they trying to empty shelfs with sd810 and they don't care if it overheats.. they wanna keep 820 for next year or december..

And now spec w***es will cry about Google not including a gazillion GB RAM in this device.

I feel no reason to get rid of the 2014 nexus 6 for this.... Smaller screen, only 3 gigs of ram, no dual speakers.... Seems like Google went sideways on this.

I agree. But what leak said no stereo speakers?


Posts: 1461; Member since: Mar 09, 2010

Just look at the design.... Lol

Plus the Huawei Nexus 6 is so ugly. Huawei is capable and have released some nice looking devices, but I don't know what they were thinking on this one.

The sad thing is that it would have been gorgeous without that black bar camera bump. Would have probably been the best looking phone ever without it.

Thank god I got note 5 and did not wait for this. I would have regretted if nexus would have came up with kirin 950 or SD 820.
