Upcoming Nexus 5 Blasts Samsung Galaxy S6/Edge AnTuTu Scores

Published by:

Samsung is currently topping the AnTuTu benchmar score for the powerhouse device flagship of 2015, but according to a new AnTuTu result, upcoming Google Nexus 5 will out match Samsung Galaxy S6/Edge’s reign, topping the charts with a record high of 85k score on the bench-marking site, which is 20k more than the Sammy flagships and the in-house Exynos 7420 chipset.

The said Nexus 5 being made for Google could possibly be coming from two renowned manufacturers, LG and Huawei if rumours flying around is anything to go by.

Though currently, there’s no word yet on the specs of the device, the LG version of the Nexus 5 (2015) whose AnTuTu score surfaced indicates that the coming smartphone could be fitted with a next-gen Snapdragon 820.

Also, judging from the alleged score card, the device will once again be named the Nexus 5, well probably Nexus 5 (2015) to avoid confusion. Apparently, LG has decided to abandon the whole incremental naming approach, as was with the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5, which could indicate that the next phone will also have close to 5.0-inches of screen real estate. This will surely be a welcome sight for a lot of Android purists that simply found the 5.96-inch Nexus 6 too large.

Last but not least, AnTuTu has detected the Nexus 5 (2015) as a Full HD device. This is kind of odd, considering the current Nexus boasts 1440 x 2560 pixels. Perhaps Google thought QHD would be an overkill on the smaller screen of the new Nexus 5.

After his surgery last year, President Iwata issued a statement saying that “it is said that a bile duct growth can be difficult-to-treat, partly because of the difficulty of detecting it early. In my case, luckily, it was detected very early and I had no symptoms”.

Iwata began his career in 1983, where he took on a role as a software coordinator at HAL Laboratory, eventually becoming HAL President in 1993, and joining Nintendo in 2000.

Nintendo has announced that Shigeru Miyamoto and Genya Takeda will continue to serve as Nintendo’s representative directors.

    Samsung Galaxy A8

    Samsung’s next phone Galaxy A8 after passing through Chinese certification base TENAA and US mobile certification body FCC and getting it’s specs outted has a new hands-on video courtesy of TENAA.

    The phablet sized device in the 3 mins video posted on YouTube shows-off the phones bezels, it’s metal chasis and the camera shooters. The 5.7″ Samsung Galaxy A8 is a pretty interesting Sammy device, in that this new A-comer is the slimmest of all Samsung devices at just 5.9mm (157.7mm x 76.7mm x 5.9mm).
    Samsung Galaxy A8

    The device features Samsung’s signature Super AMOLED display, the display seems to be identical to the one in the Galaxy Note 3 – sporting FullHD resolution and 386ppi density. Powering the device is Qualcomm’s popular mid-range chip – the Snapdragon 615. It is by no means beastly, but is perfectly capable with four Cortex A53 cores, clocked at 1.7 GHz and another four at 1.0 GHz. The chipset comes equipped with an Adreno 405 GPU and CAT4 LTE connectivity.

    On the memory segment, there’s 2GB RAM and 16GB of onboard storage ROM. Thankfully, there is also a microSD card slot for adding extra space. The camera setup is comprised of a 16MP main shooter and a 5MP selfie one. The physical home button is also equipped a fingerprint sensor, as was previously rumored, although here it is referred to as a “biometric authentication system”. The whole thing is powered by a 3050 mAh battery and boots Android 5.1.1 Lollipop with Samsung’s own TouchWiz on top.

    At the moment though, there is no telling what the asking price of the Samsung Galaxy A8 is or when it would be officially released.
