Freshly leaked benchmark images of Nexus X (aka Nexus 6) now confirm a few known specifications of the highly-anticipated Google smartphone including the Snapdragon 805 (APQ8084 chipset) processor clocked at 2.7 GHz, Adreno 420 GPU, 3GB of RAM and 13-megapixel rear camera.
Though the benchmark seems authentic at first glance, sceptics and critics alike would undoubtedly question its credibility as Nexus X's low benchmark score of 35,430 in AnTuTu does not match up with the powerful Snapdragon 805 processor under its hood.
The other key specifications confirmed recently include the 5.9in 2K (1440 x 2560pixels) display (as the handset is based on Moto S or Shamu), besides the evidence of Android L aka Lemon Meringue Pie being ported to the Nexus X at the time of its release.
In related news, the long-rumoured Nexus 6 recently received a new name - 'Nexus X', owing to copyright issues with the famous movie Blade Runner wherein its author, Philip K. Dick, had called the dummy androids as Nexus-6 in his story and threatened a lawsuit against Samsung for using the same name with copyright violation.
No wonder then it seems that Google has decided to play safe and chose to rename the handset as Nexus X, with a Halloween release on the horizon.
Google seems to have a surprise launch scheduled for the Nexus X along the lines of last year's Nexus 5, wherein the handset was unveiled without a formal announcement. If the past is any indication, the Nexus X is likely to release in the month of October or November and run Android L or Android 5.0 out of the box.
