New Nexus 5 (2014) Benchmarks Appear with 5.2-inch QHD Display, Android 5.0 Lion

 


There is been ton's of leaks about the next Nexus, some people or leaks says it will be the Nexus 6? Nexus X? Or is it the Nexus 5 (2014)? Who knows. This latest leak comes from @emtleaks, and it’s tough for us to say this is legit or not. But we have seen a rumor of a 5.2-inch Nexus, and this benchmark does show those 5.2-inch specs. So it could possibly be true. According to this leaks here the specs which has been captured :
  • 5.2-inch 2560×1440 resolution Quad HD display
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor clocked at 2.7GHz
  •  3GB of RAM
  • 32GB of storage
  • 12-megapixel camera with a 2-megapixel front-facing camera

The most interesting part? Android 5.0 Lion. Yes, it says Lion, and not Lemon Meringue Pie, or even Lollipop.
Given the past names of Android versions, it’s is always named after a desert. Like Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich, Jelly Bean and KitKat. What I think is, it can be a Lion Candy Bar which is manufactured by Nestle the same company who makes KitKat.

And that’s what Apple did with OS X up until last year when they started going with names of places in California like Mavericks and Yosemite. As far as how legit this is, I would say all of it is legit, except for probably the name of the operating system. 

I wouldn't put it past them though. The specs seem to be right on target this year, and I’d definitely like to see a 32GB and 64GB models instead of 16GB and 32GB models from Google. 
We’ll be learning more about the Nexus 5 (2014) or whatever it’s called in the next few weeks as we’re expecting it to be released next month with Android L.
