Rumor that LG has a Nexus handset in the works have been brewing, yesterday we saw a leaked photo and apparently today we’ve got benchmarks. From the way things are ramping up Google & LG won’t be able to keep the cat in the bag much longer.
An LG prototype that has escaped from the labs has been run through AnTuTu and Quadrant benchmarks, the device scored 9270 in AnTuTu and 4207 in Quadrant. To give you a point of reference it is lower than scores from the HTC One X with Tegra 3. The one thing that you should keep in mind is that this is pre production device and it’s running pre release software. Android and Me who got the photos and information were told that the owner had the device for over half a year, if the software hasn’t been updated during that time, it could account for the low scores.
What doesn’t really make much sense is that the 1.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro chip kills anything on the market, so the LG Nexus device that we see here likely isn’t running the latest chipset or the latest software, this news is basically just an exercise in adding another LG fact to the pile.
Oh, the one thing worth noting is that the release date will likely be on October 29th. So expect the rumors to get more enthusiastic over the next few weeks.
