Nexus 5X leaks through Geekbench, once again suggesting Snapdragon 808 SoC and 2GB of RAM
As is customary, the closer we get to an official announcement of a highly anticipated device, the more substantial related leaks get. Just yesterday, we spotted an Amazon listing detailing some key specs of the rumored Nexus 5X — expected to be built by LG for Google. A hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808, 2GB of RAM, and a 12.3MP rear camera being the ones of note. Today, we just got word that the Nexus 5X (believed to be code-named 'bullhead') passed through Geekbench, once again suggesting that what we have as preliminary intel may very well be the real deal.

The pass yielded rather unimpressive results: 1,000 in the single-core test and 2,919 in the multi-core one. In comparison, the Samsung Galaxy Note5 averages about 1,500 and 4,500, respectively. This is likely explained by the Snapdragon 808 chip/2gigs of RAM combo on board, though even the LG G4 (which is identical in that regard, except for the gigabyte RAM extra) scores better. This leads us to believe that the Android Marshmallow build on board the captured Nexus 5X is not final yet, and will go through more optimizations — after all, the device is expected to ship with a comparatively frugal, 1080p display.

For an overview of all the leaked intel concerning Google's upcoming Nexus 5X, you should refer to our extensive rumor round-up, available here. The phone is expected to be announced alongside a larger, Huawei-made Nexus on September 29th.
