Nexus 6 to feature Snapdragon 805 chipset, Adreno 420 GPU


Is the much-anticipated Nexus 6 finally on its way? An unidentified smartphone known only by the codename ‘Shamu’ surfaced in a leaked AnTuTu benchmark, earlier today, corroborating the rumors and speculation we’ve heard so far about the Nexus 6 — so it certainly looks like Google’s next flagship smartphone is set to feature some pretty awesome specifications.

According to AnTuTu’s results, the Shamu will pack a gorgeous 5.2-inch Quad HD display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, the latest 2.6Ghz quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor, an Adreno 420 GPU, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal flash memory (non-expandable), a 12-megapixel rear-facing camera capable of shooting 4K UHD video and a 2-megapixel front-facing shooter.


The benchmark shows Shamu running the latest developer build of Android L. We expect the handset it to ship with the final version onboard when it’s announced this fall.

Recent reports suggest that the device will incorporate many of Motorola-exclusive software features, including Active Display and Touchless control — which allows users to interact with their handset without actually having to make contact with it.

Do you think this is the Nexus 6? If so are you happy with it’s specifications?
