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!
