Don’t get too excited folks, because most likely this is completely fake given how easy it is to tweak benchmark tests. According to some new screenshots that are floating around those dark corners of the web, Motorola’s famed X-Phone has been spotted being called the Google X, and running the popular AnTuTu benchmark test. We’ll take this with a massive grain of salt, that’s for sure.
I don’t even know where to begin here. Obviously this is fake, or is it? We’ve heard countless reports and rumors that Google and Motorola’s next device is codenamed the X-Phone, but we aren’t sure that’s the real name when these devices hit the street. There’s also been talk that their first round won’t be extremely top-tier devices, but awesome smartphones in general. The leaked benchmark seems to support that last theory, even though it’s most likely fake.
A simple tweak or build.prop edit can change how AnTuTu outputs your benchmark results, so this would only take the average Android fan a few moments to do, so we’ll just let you decide. Showing what appears to be the “Google X” running Android 5.0.1 Key Lime Pie was running some benchmarks, and scored a respectable 15,000 in AnTuTu.
Now it shows the processor running at 1512 MHz, which lines up nicely with the LG Nexus 4’s Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro, which runs at 1.5 GHz. A device that also manages to score between 14-17k in AnTuTu for most. So this device scoring nearly 16,000 is likely a Nexus 4 tweaked just to tease us all. Could the next Motorola device arrive with the Snapdragon S4 Pro and not their new 600 or 800 series processors? Possibly. Is this real? Seriously doubtful.
Oh and don’t forget almost every version of Android has came out with most leaks getting the number scheme wrong. So while it could be Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, it just as easily could be 4.3 or something else. Google I/O is just a few weeks away, so stay tuned and we’ll get all the real details soon enough.
