Nexus 6 Could Be the Most Powerful Smartphone on the Market, Benchmark Shows

Although there’s no telling when exactly Google will unveil the next Nexus smartphone, from previous experiences we can tell that it may be this month that the search giant plans to make the device official.

Google usually introduces a new version of Android in October and launches a new Nexus smartphone during the same event, but this year the company had decided to release a preview version of Android L in June, so that developers can prepare their apps for the upcoming OS. But what about the new Nexus handset that should be launched along with Android L? Well, fortunately we do know that it will be manufactured by Motorola and that it will pack a huge 5.9-inch QHD (2560 x 1440 pixels) resolution display, as well as a powerful quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor. The phablet is also said to be equipped with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory, as well as an enhanced 13-megapixel main camera with OIS (optical image stabilization).

The upcoming smartphone has already leaked a few times as Motorola Shamu, as Google is still working to secure the Nexus 6 name for the smartphone. The latest info on the Nexus 6 indicates that this might be one of the most powerful Android smartphones available on the market. Spotted on Geekbench website, the benchmarks scores show high performance when it comes to multi-core test, as well as single-core where the Shamu is placed third after iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

The results in the Geekbench testing benchmark might have been achieved with a prototype unit, so the final version may score even higher than that. Even though we did not expect something less superior from Google, the Nexus 6’s benchmark scores are still impressive and quite an achievement for a device that has yet to be launched on the market. The only issue would be with the fact that Google plans to launch a single Nexus 6 variant, which might not appeal to all customers who favor smaller smartphones over phablets.

However, there is hope for Nexus family fans, as Motorola is expected to launch a smaller 5.2-inch Nexus smartphone, which might go on sale under a different name. The smaller Nexus model may be launched under the Android Silver brand, though everything is a bit blurry now as Google is still mum on everything related to its new Nexus and Android Silver smartphone programs. Stay tuned for more on this one.
