Nexus X benchmarks confirm internals and that Android L is version 5.0

Nexus X benchmarks confirm internals and that Android L is version 5.0
The news keeps coming quickly these days. We now know that the so-called Nexus 6 will most likely be called the Nexus X. We know that it is based on the Moto S (Shamu), meaning it has a 5.9-inch 1440x2560 (2K) display. And, we are getting evidence that Android L will be nicknamed Lemon Meringue Pie. Now, we're getting more info via benchmarks.

The leak comes once again from TKTechNews who has gotten screenshots of the Nexus X Antutu results. The results confirm some items that we have known, like the Snapdragon 805 (APQ8084) processor clocked at 2.7GHz, the 3GB of RAM, the display resolution, and the 13-megapixel rear camera. The odd thing about the benchmarks is actually the score of 35,430, which is decidedly low for a Snapdragon 805. For comparison, the Snapdragon 801-powered LG G3 has a score of 39,132. 

The other interesting note is that the benchmarks label Android L to be version 5.0. This isn't exactly a surprise, because Google usually saves full number updates for times when Android gets a visual overhaul, and that is exactly what is coming with Material Design. But, it's nice to see some confirmation.

They received a lot of criticism for the processor they used in the G-Nex, and the Nexus-S was arguably the most forgettable Nexus yet. I wouldn't exactly call them "disasters" but of the five Nexus phones so far, my personal two least favorite have been the Samsung ones.

Nexus S blew the competition in terms of speed thanks to the Hummingbird processor. The Galaxy Nexus brought the first HD screen to the market, but the LTE radios at the time,as in all phones released in 2011/2012, drained battery. Imo, they were great phones.

Really!? well Nexus S was outdated for the time, the competition was outing dual cores and better cameras, and Hummingbird was a chipset from the OG Galaxy S, a phone almost 8-9 months old. Check this review Regarding the Galaxy Nexus, yes it was a great phone, but TI OMAP 4 was inferior than Exynos.

I think Ti was used to make the phone pentaband and was the only real option at the time.

I think you have it confused with the Galaxy Nexus. The Nexus S was a very popular phone, it was very smooth and responsive and the Super AMOLED display was excellent as well. The Galaxy Nexus had a underpowered processor, a brand spanking new ICS UI that was clearly bugged and rushed out and needed time to fix the bugs, and again, one of the first few LTE devices and we all know how well the first few LTE phones were. I think now with those problems gone and out of the way, Samsung would make an excellent Nexus phone.

It was a disaster for a Nexus. It launched as two different phones with Verizon exclusivity in the US and a staggered launch to other carriers. A big no for a Nexus device. Then the phone had horrible build quality, a ton of issues with the screen (burn in and vertical lines from day one) and of course the bad battery life. Hardware inside started to fail early on. Then the software was abandoned after one year and had delayed updates for Verizon approval (LTE variant) It's still on 4.2 today. DISASTER.

Those were all English words, but I understand what you're trying to say. What I don't understand is why you're bothering to correct what is clearly a typo. It's pretty clear what he intended to say, so it's not like his gaffe detracted from his message. (Oh, and if you're wondering why I'm bothering to criticize you over such a trivial matter, it's because I'm sitting on a toilet.)

I've been pretty happy with my wife's maxx, the camera isn't the best in low light but battery life, smoothness/speed, reception couldn't be better.

The thing is the need to keep it cheap so they wont go crazy with the specs and also they don't want it to compete with their current flagships so they will make it less appealing.

why does everyone believe the antutu on a device no one knows about nexus will not be a 5.9 screen its to close to tablet and no one would buy it but 10% of the normal buyer asia loves massive phones because they are little and think bigger is better but no phone should be over 5 inch.

41. geordie8t1 unregistered

in your opinion a phone should not be over 5", but lets say in my view no phone should be UNDER 5" unless its a mid range feature phone, and as the fact often is, bigger usually is better Specs wise at least anyhow

53. engineer-1701d unregistered

You so wrong over 5 inch is not a phone that's bigger then the old moto phones from the ,90's

You re so very wrong no smartphone should be under 5.7 inch, once you use a smart phone this size you can't go back to anything smaller feature phones and dumb phone can be smaller

"asia loves massive phones because they are little"... brother, do you have ever seen chinese, mogolians, japanese or koreans in reality? no you didnt, right? by no definition they are little... do you call 172cm to 190cm a little? thats the usual height of these people...

Chinese, mongolians(lol) , japs, kors ive seen in reality. Reality is theyre 150cm or less and im a giant walking amongst them. They have such extreme napolean complexes that its apart of their government agenda to increase hieght through growth hormones in food &/or just propaganda their claims. Like you, brother. Extreme napolean complexes, brother. Ps ok ive never seen a mongolian, but every docu and anthony bourdaine episode theyre all midgets next to him.

Selling them at relatively lower prices won't be possible if Samsung makes them.

It´s actually quite common that phones with a new version of the OS score low on Antutu. I has pretty much happened to the complete Nexus line. And doesn´t mean a thing, just that Antutu is not performing well on that version (yet) Some months later Antutu puts a version for that Android Version and that solves the issue.

Luckily, you can purchase any number of other devices that won't have such a big screen, like the Moto X+1, or the HTC One Google Play edition
