Nexus 5 (2014) benchmarks leak, reveal Android 5.0 Lion surprise

The new Nexus might end up being called simple the Nexus 5 (2014). That’s the latest rumor coming via a leak, allegedly originating from the GFXBench application. 

But that’s hardly the biggest surprise: the big revelation is the name of the Android version it features - Android 5.0 Lion. Do keep in mind, though, that previous leaks from this source (@emtleaks) do not hold up to any standard, so keep an eye out as this might be a fabrication.

After rumors about the new Android carrying the codename Lollipop, and then Lemon Meringue Pie, we’re now hearing about Lion, but it makes a lot of sense. 

After Google partnered with Nestle for Android 4.4 KitKat, why not explore the partnership to yet another popular Nestle sweet treat: Lion?

It all sounds logical, but is far from being set in stone. In fact, it’s merely one of many rumors that compete for your attention with the new Nexus. 

Take a look at the screenshot below, listing the Nexus 5 (2014) with the following specs:

  • 5.2-inch display with 1440 x 2560-pixel (Quad HD) resolution 
  • Android 5.0 Lion
  • Snapdragon 805 running at up to 2.7GHz, Adreno 420
  • 3GB RAM, 32GB internal storage
  • 12-megapixel rear cam, 2-megapixel front shooter

What do you think about such a configuration: would you buy a Nexus 5 (2014) if it looked like this?
