Google is set to announce its latest smartphone at the end of this month, and whether it's called the Nexus 6 or Nexus X, it going to be BIG and - according to newly published benchmark tests - powerful.

The latest leaked information about the upcoming device, which is set to feature a large 6in screen, comes from a pass of the Geekbench benchmarking tool which allows users to gauge how powerful the new device is going to be.

The Nexus 6 is being built by Google in collaboration with Motorola and has the codename Shamu internally. It has also been referred to as the Nexus X as its design is said to bear a lot of resemblance to the Moto X which was launched last month.

According to previous leaks the Nexus 6 is set to feature some high end specs - including a Snapdragon 805 chip from Qualcomm paired with a huge 3GB of RAM. And these rumours are backed up by the Geekbench tests.

You can look at the full set of benchmark results for the Nexus 6 here, and for comparison the iPhone 6 results are here, but in short, they show that the Nexus 6 is set to become one of the most powerful smartphones on the market.

In terms of multi-threaded performance the Nexus 6 outshines all others, while the iPhone 6 and iPhone 5s just beat it in terms of single thread performance.

Reports suggest the Nexus 6 will feature a QHD resolution screen, similar to that seen on the LG G3, and while some had suggested this would hinder the performance of the phone, these results suggest otherwise.

Google had been toying with the idea of ditching its Nexus program for a while now, but its potential replacement, dubbed Android Silver, seems to be dead in the water for now.
