Nexus X leaks again: Android 5.0 ‘Lemon Meringue Pie’ and Snapdragon 805 on board

After a lot of back and forth in rumors, it seems that there will be a new Nexus after all, and it’s likely to be called the Nexus X. The device has appeared on French retailer before its official unveiling (the particular page is now pulled), and the listing reveals that the Nexus X will come with a 5.2” display, a Snapdragon 805 system chip, 13-megapixel camera, and - naturally - Android L.

Note that we've been hearing from our own sources that Google seems to have settled on a 5.9-inch display. Is this another Nexus, and could it be so that Google launches two Nexus phones this year? It's one possibility worth considering.

This Nexus X is also said to be made by Motorola, and carry an alternative XT1100 codename. We are seeing leaks of two versions: a 32GB and a 64GB one, and there seems to be no 16 gig model.

The price seems to have gone up in comparison with the Nexus 5, but it’s still some 30% to 40% cheaper than most other flagships. The listing that has leaked shows that the 32GB Nexus X would cost €419.99 (which usually translates into a $419.99 off-contract price in the United States), while the 64 gig model is priced at €449.99.

Another interesting detail we see in those leaks is the name of the Android L release. It seems that Google has agreed on Android ‘Lemon Meringue Pie’, or Android LMP, to be the sweet treat inspiring the new, 5.0 version of Google’s operating system.

and 2.7ghz quadcore. My first computer was a 2.1ghz and more than 60 watts consuming

My PC has 2,3 GHz and it's a lot faster than these Snapdragons. Though it has a 3,3 GHz turbo mode. But even 1,6 GHz i7 or i5 dual core is a lot faster than mobile processors. No comparison.

And use a lot more energy too... So I don't know why the comparison.

They have different architecture, you can't just directly compare a RISC to a CISC architecture. 1ghz intel could still beat a 2.7ghz snapdragon

Now that is where you are wrong . snapdragon 805 would be around the power of 1.5ghz core i3 extrapolating from geekbench.

Now your comparing a quad core to a dual core i3, just try comparing it to a i5 quad.

I hope that this year the Motorola Nexus X comes to Verizon. Man Verizon really misses the Nexus line. When the Samsung Galaxy Nexus came out for Verizon, wow those were glorious days!

What do you expect, a Samsung camera sensor lol? Sony camera sensors are the best.

Samsung's isocell is pretty much better than exmor R/Rs imo but things are going to change once Sony release their first smartphone with their latest curved sensor

but in low light isocell struggles more than the sony sensor .

The 13mp Sony sensor is not bad at all! Camera will be better than the Nexus 5 one. Unfortunately, it will probably miss the optical stabilizer, though I have to say that it has not proven to be very effective on the N5.

Allow me to throw some doubts here: 32Go version says 5.3" screen while the 64Go version says 5.2" screen Also, this seems to be a 3rd Party vendor "Martitek" rather than the big name retailer Fnac...

Seems costlier than early Nexuss.

It is, but that's if you buy in fnac at launch time. Let's see how that translates if you buy in the play store ;)

Waitaminute... Is it a 5.2 screen or what has been reported many times earlier: 5.9? Landscape Mode users prefer using the longer screen.

Please Subsidize it on EVERY country! The price justification of the nexus 5 and the G2 is not that much here... There is only about ~$60 gap between the two.

It's just a fake, check the word "Quad" on second screenshot...

Discieved. I don't believe this to be true. Last year, all the rumors were pretty much way off base for the N5 too.

Of course it is fake, This is show how easy to manipulate media by creating false rumors with fake images.
