At this point we’re pretty confident in saying the new Nexus 5 will be made by LG, and is coming soon. Between the leak yesterday of the Nexus 5 being found at a bar, Google’s own video showing off the phone, and more. Well, today we can add one more sighting complete with additional details found from a GFXBench result.

We know most of the important details at this point about the upcoming Nexus smartphone, which here is being called the Google Nexus 5. Not the LG Nexus 5. Showing the brand being Google, and the name being Nexus 5. This leaked benchmark result, if accurate, also shows the device running Android 4.4 KitKat.

Confirming what we already knew this is teasing the quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor at 2.26 GHz, 2GB of RAM, and a 1080p full HD display. It’s showing 1794 x 1080 because the use of on-screen navigation keys of course. Then we’re still seeing “Key Lime Pie” instead of KitKat, with the Android version build being KRS71D. Which of course the K is for KitKat (or KeyLimePie) just like all current builds start with a J for Belly Bean.

While this could be fake we’ve seen similar results turn up accurate from GFXBench before, not to mention this mirrors countless other leaks and rumored specs. At this point all we really need to know is what carriers will get it, if Google can get all (read: Verizon) on board, and when it will be released. Latest tips suggest an October 14th reveal and end of October release date.


  1. We already know that Verizon is going to be greedy and will not allow you any freedom on their network at all. That is why only one Nexus has ever been carried by Verizon, and look at what a disaster that was.
