In the midst of all the rumors, an unannounced, mysterious LG smartphone has been spotted on Geekbench website.
Google wanted to put a fingerprint authentication system inside the Nexus 6 too, but towards the end of the development process, the idea had to be scraped off. Maybe the new Nexus device will be luckier in this regard. Phone Arena flags a new benchmark that recently popped up on Geekbench for a mystery LG phone that it speculates is either the 2015 Nexus 5 or the upcoming LG G4 Pro. Lollipop, the latest version of the mobile OS right now, and it’ll be powered by a hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor clocked at 1.4 GHz per core. As per rumor mill, the new Nexus 5 as well as the G4 Pro will be powered by Snapdragon 820 chipset, though there is nothing confirmed as yet.
Or if it is a part of the G series, it could be a follow-up or variation of the LG G Flex 2 that was released at the start of the year – then again, it seems a bit early to be this far along with a follow-up to the G Flex 2, which isn’t the star of the G series.
What’s curious about the device’s rumored specs is the inclusion of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820, which wasn’t expected to show up in devices until next year. But even though Samsung’s choice of the Exynos 7420 of the Galaxy S6 Duo led some to believe that the SoC would be a complete flop, we’ve seen several manufacturers adopt it on their devices, giving mixed results in the process.
The LG device is codenamed LGE LG-F600L and in the benchmarking report published on Geekbench the device obtained 1082 in the Single-core test and 3298 in the Multi-core test. Interestingly enough, the codename is consistent with the previous variant of LG.
If you were reticent to buy Google’s latest Nexus phablet because of its high price, now it’s the time to order the Nexus 6 from Prime Day. The device may also include 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM, 64GB of internal memory, a powerful 27-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel rear shooter. In the meantime, check out the benchmarks below in the image. Unfortunately, this is all we have for now and since it’s just a leak, keep an open mind.
