Google’s Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P have appeared in numerous leaks, all seemingly confirming the same general picture. LG made the next-gen affordable and reasonably sized Nexus handset (the Nexus 5X) while Huawei was tasked with creating the next-gen high-end Nexus handset (the Nexus 6P).
With just a few days to go until Google’s September 29th announcement event for the handsets, a Geekbench 3 benchmark test has been discovered, further detailing the specs of the Nexus 5X and suggesting the handset will be rather affordable. A similar test for the Huawei Nexus handset is also available, indicating the phone will offer performance on par with the class-leading Galaxy S6.
Test scores reveal that the new phone won’t be able to top other flagship Android rivals. The Nexus 5X managed a score of 1000 in single-core tests and 2919 in multi-core tests.
Android tech blog Phandroid found a listing dated September 22nd for the Huawei Angler on the same site, or the Nexus 6P, which indicates the phone will have an eight-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and 3GB of RAM. The phone scored 1310 and 4431 in single- and multi-core tests, respectively.
Meanwhile, the following scores show single-core performance as registered by Geekbench 3 for some of the current top Android devices.
