Amid rampant rumors and leaked GFXBench data, here comes a questionable AnTuTu benchmark to shake things up even more

Another unofficial benchmark leak showcases the Nexus 6 with robust specs, though you’ll naturally need a salt shaker with this too.

There are currently two benchmarks, one from GFXBench and another from AnTuTu (as seen above). The AnTuTu results list the Nexus 6 (tentative) with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 instead of the 801. With all the usual speculation running amok around this time for a new Nexus device, the Nexus 6 has had its fair share of rumor mill treatment; everything from HTC being the chosen OEM to the device never seeing the light of day because of Google cancelling the Nexus program.

Then there was a rumor that actually made some sense–that Google is currently working with Motorola to produce a 5.9in device code-named “Shamu.”  The rumor caused a rather dichotomous reaction–some loved the idea of a 5.9in phone and some didn’t. Google allegedly always had the intent of making a Moto Nexus but refrained, out of consideration for the other OEMs that would feel at a disadvantage. Of course,  the sale of Motorola to Lenovo earlier this year puts Google in a position to do this without nepotistism accusations.

Whether these specs are valid, the idea of a Motorola Nexus comes to a considerable boon for those who have long-anticipated a such a development since Google acquired the company back in 2012. All things considered, here’s to hoping the next Nexus comes relatively early in Q4 with the lowest possible price points.
