Nexus 5 (2015) tops 85,000 on AnTuTu?

Nexus 5 (2015) tops 85,000 on AnTuTu?
All last year, the Meizu MX4 was the top scoring phone on the AnTuTu Benchmark website with an average score of 47,765. That edged out the 47,079 scored by the Nexus 6. The early leader for 2015 was the Samsung Galaxy S6 with a 68,157 tally. But now, there is a new King sitting on the AnTuTu throne. With an incredible score of 85,530, the Nexus 5 (2015) is seemingly the new phone to beat on the benchmark site.

Unlike the other handsets mentioned above, the Nexus 5 (2015) has not been released; in fact, it hasn't even been unveiled. At this point, it is basically a rumor. But with an AnTuTu score that high, we can assume that if the Nexus 5 (2015) is real, it will be carrying the Snapdragon 820 SoC under the hood. Earlier this year, we saw the Snapdragon 820 benchmarked on the Geekbench site.

Rumors that LG would be manufacturing one of two Nexus handsets to be offered this year go back as far as February. About the only thing we have heard, outside of the high AnTuTu score, is that the phone will not be based on the LG G4.

If there really is a Nexus 5 (2015) and the 85,530 score is legit, will the handset remain on top for the whole year? There will be a number of Snapdragon 820 powered phones launching before the end of this year, including the Xiaomi Mi 5 and the HTC Aero. Will any of these top the Nexus 5 (2015)?  Stay tuned.

Since this phone has yet to be announced, we recommend taking the story with a grain of salt.

Thanks for the tip!

Everyone said the same thing about S6 with its 69k score was leaked so I wouldn't jump the gun and call it fake. Just believe it when you see it. Also as someone mentioned, its performance seems to be on the S6 level but it has half the resolution in pixels to push out so the score is higher.

Snapdragon is back in action.....

it isn't snapdragon. Look at graphics score. Maybe it is Kirin 950.

Its the only possible conclusion as cortex a72 can be only the one at this point which are capable of this and snapdragon 820 may be as powerfull as exynos in s6 but not more

Yep. If this report is accurate (which I am not sure it is), my guess would be some cortex A72 or possibly a totally different architecture with a very powerful CPU but weaker GPU (it's beaten in 2D and 3D graphics by both the HTC One M9 and the Galaxy S6). Perhaps an Intel processor?

I agree. If it was the 820, you would expect a better graphics score than the HTC One M9, but it is significantly lower. Significantly superior CPU but significantly inferior GPU. It it's real, what could it be?

In this case, people may wonder why LG would make a Nexus 5 that's significantly faster than their G4, which is their flagship Hopefully this means the rumor of a G4 Pro with a 820 is true I won't be surprised if this Nexus 5 with 820 rumor is fake, it sounds too good to be true I reckon the Nexus 5 will most likely have the 808 But I wouldn't really mind if its the 820 or 808 The 2013 with the 800 is still performing more or less as fast as the current flagships Its the battery and camera that need improving

i think it's just as powerful as the S6, the only difference in performance is due to screen resolution FHD in Nexus VS QHD in S6

It would never be that big a difference though, look at the Find 7a and Find 7.

Nope, it doesn't make much difference as the graphics tests are vsync limited, (outdated). Galaxy S6 at 1080p scores around 72K

Note 5 should be up there. I can't wait for this holiday season. My nexus 6 needs an upgrade.

The Nexus 6 needing an upgrade is an understatement.

My Galaxy S4 needs an upgrade. With a Nexus 6 you won't need an upgrade for at least 8 months or so.

AnTuTu is like a carĀ“s top speed - you know about it but legally never reach it:)

"Only 1080p"? 1080p is more than enough at least till a 7 inches device. I can't make any difference in between phones with FullHD and QHD, only in tablets I notice a difference. So it does not only make perfect sense, it's the sensible thing to go on any phone under 6 inches (Samsung ones being the exception as they use pentile arrangements). I would congratulate Google for going out of the numbers wars and do the right thing if it is true.
