As we approach the rumored Sept 29th launch of Google’s refreshed Nexus product line, we expect that more and more leaks will be hitting the net. The latest bit of news comes as a leaked Huawei Nexus benchmark, discovered by the boys at MyDrivers. Going by the code name Angler, the benchmark not only clues us in on the device’s performance, but could confirm a few hardware specs on the process.
Here the GeekBench shows the phone powered by a Snapdragon 810 processor (which is unfortunately the trend this year) as well as 3GB of RAM, and running on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Really, that’s it. The actual benchmark — 1156/3641 — may not hold a candle to something like the Samsung Galaxy S6 (which is around 1500/5000), but keep in mind there are other factors involved and real-world speed may vary. Most Galaxy S6 owners can tell you they’ve seen performance take a huge hit in recent months.
Other rumored Huawei Nexus specs include either a 5.5-inch or 5.7-inch 2K display, fingerprint reader, and a reversible USB Type C port. We’re still not sure which Nexus model we’ll choose this year, with our hierarchy of values favoring battery life slightly above a smaller form factor.
