At Gizbot we've been brining you leaks and updates on Google's purported Nexus 5, the alleged successor of the company's Nexus 4 smartphone, throughout September. Now, we've come across the most exciting leak yet, images of a benchmark test that show the Nexus 5's score beating some of the hottest phones in the market.
We're not sure if the image is genuine and that it can be trusted. But what it does show us is that Google's next smartphone, which will be manufactured by LG, knocks the living day lights out of devices like Apple's iPhone 5, the splendid HTC One, Samsung's Galaxy S4, the stunning Sony Xperia Z1 and finally Apple's brand new iPhone 5S.
The benchmark results, if proven accurate, could mean that Google's is on the verge of giving the world its most exciting Android device yet, not to forget the most powerful one. As per these benchmark scores, the Nexus 5 will be so fast and powerful that devices like the Apple's iPhone 5 won't even be in the same league.
This benchmark also allows us to suspect that Google might have just used 64-bit architecture in the upcoming Nexus 5, similar to Apple's A7 64 bit chip. The reason being that Apple's new iPhone 5S is a beast when it comes to performance, one that will be very heard to beat unless its rivals are using 64-bit technology.
The benchmark also revealed that the Nexus 5 will utilize the latest Adreno 330 GPU, a 2.2Ghz Quad-Core Snapdragon 800 processor, a 1080p display and the much awaited Android 4.4 KitKat. Until Google makes an official announcement none of these rumors and leaks can be confirmed. However, since the company has been clearing stocks of the Nexus 4 in the US, there's a good chance that a Nexus 5 launch is around the corner.
Given that Google's last two Nexus phone launch events took place during October in 2011 (Samsung Galaxy nexus) and 2012 (Nexus 4), We expect Google to announce the Nexus 5 on October 14tth and put it up for sale in November right ahead of the holiday season. How ever, the device might not hit Indian markets until sometime in 2014, an indication that comes form the Nexus 4, which came to India eight months after its International release.
