Google Nexus 5 Shows Up On AnTuTu With Mysterious Name & Android 5.0
We have seen a new benchmark over at AnTuTu that could be the upcoming Google X Phone. This is a handset that has sparked rumours for some time due to the fact that is runs pure Android.
Of course the benchmark could be a fake one, but the Google X Phone has been rumoured for some time now. It may be the Motorola Google Nexus 5 or it could be another brand name. What we cannot remember is there being a device that wasnít officially announced being on benchmarks for so long before the release. So this could mean that it may be revealed at the I/O.
So for now we will treat this as though it is the real deal. We did notice that the handset was running Key Lime Pie and that the name is said to be the Google X.
There were rumours going around that the handset could have the name of the Google X Phone or the Motorola X Phone. On the other hand it may be the Google Nexus X, thanks to Google having dropped the used of numbering. The handset should be making its way out in 2013 and Nexus fans are getting excited.
When you compare the scores of the benchmark to the Samsung Galaxy S3 they donít come near it. However the Samsung Galaxy S4 has been taken to a completely new level and so we hope that the device on the benchmark is not too long in coming out. Otherwise it could look outdated.
The Google X in the screenshot runs Android 5.0. While this hasnít been revealed yet people are expecting it to come out at the I/O and it may have the name of Key Lime Pie.
If you are waiting for the Google phone you should not let the benchmarks put you off. The device could be very powerful in the mid-range handsets. Motorola did say that they donít plan to offer devices with specs that would impress, so this would suggest that if they are the ones behind the Google Nexus 5 benchmark tests wouldnít be huge.
