Nexus 5 Specs Leaked in New Benchmark

The Nexus 5 has leaked again, this time on benchmarking site GFXBench, where the rumored handset’s alleged specs were revealed. Yet again, the Google-designed smartphone has been confirmed, and with the rate of leaks we’re seeing at this point the official Nexus 5 release can’t be far away.

According to the latest leak from GFXBench, the Nexus 5 will come equipped with a 1080p (1794 x 1080) display and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 processor. Google’s new handset, which is apparently codenamed Hammerhead, is also expected to feature a 5-inch display and a massive rear camera. The benchmarked smartphone is bizarrely listed as running Android KeyLimePie, the name many expected Google to call the next version of its operating system, though we now know the upcoming OS will be called Android 4.4 KitKat.

Google is expected to launch both the Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 around the same time, with recent reports indicating the new smartphone and OS could be unveiled at an event in mid-October. We expect to see more leaks in the next few weeks as the official launch approaches, so stay tuned for updates.
