With Google’s September 29th announcement looming large, you could be forgiven for wondering if there was anything left to find out about LG’s Nexus 5X handset other than pricing and availability. Even Amazon India has gotten in to the act. But wait, there’s more news, because the Nexus 5X has been spotted being put through its paces on GeekBench under the code-name ‘Bullhead‘, the details which are after the break.
While Amazon recently laid off some of its engineers after the Fire Phone failed to set the world alight, there has been persistent rumours that the global retailer is developing a budget-friendly tablet that could be priced at just $50. Amazon has so far declined to either confirm or deny the existence of such a project, although it has allegedly been spotted being put through its paces on GFXBench under the ‘Amazon KFFOWI’ moniker.
Today, alleged benchmarks for the Verizon variant of the Galaxy Note 5, SM-N920V, have come out.
Earlier today, a Meizu device, likely the upcoming M2, surfaced on AnTuTu and scored 28,047. According to previous leaks, the M2 will ship with two storage options: 8GB and 16GB. The pricing for them will be 499 Yuan ($80) and 699 Yuan ($113), respectively. We are looking at a 5-inch 720p display, 2GB of RAM, 13MP rear camera and 5MP front-facing camera. The M2 will be powered by MediaTek’s MT6753 64-bit octa-core SoC and run Android 5.0 Lollipop with Flyme UI on top of it.
The device is also expected to ship with 4G LTE connectivity and dual-SIM capabilities likes its predecessor. The Meizu M2 is scheduled to be announced at an event in China on July 29th.

It’s getting closer to July 27th, the day that the successor to the OnePlus One will launch. Appropriately titled the OnePlus 2, the upcoming handset has been in the headlines for a variety of reason ranging from OnePlus releasing a steady drip feed of its specifications, price promises, and claims that it will sport the latest version of Qualcomm’s much denigrated Snapdragon 810. This brings us neatly to today’s news, the reported Antutu benchmark scores of a OnePlus 2 handset with model number A2001.
Earlier today, an unknown handset visited Geekbench. The device is manufactured my LG and contains a Snapdragon 808 chipset with 4GB of RAM. The mysterious device is listed under the code LGE LG-F600L and has a single core performance of 1082, and a 3298 multi-core performance. These are good numbers and hint towards a flagship device.
There is a handset roaming around the world that is known internally by Xiaomi as ‘Ferrari.’ Although we have no idea what the phone looks like (yet), we do know about its specifications. On GFXBench, pretty much everything going into the handset was exposed.
Today, benchmarks belonging to two unannounced HTC devices appeared online. The benchmarks, uploaded to CompuBench, expose what is presumably the One (M9) and One (M9) Plus. Both are shaping up to be rather impressive devices, but, to no surprise, the Plus model has the edge. The primary difference between the two seems to be with the display. While the One (M9) has a 5-inch display with 1920×1080 resolution, the One (M9) Plus raises that to 2560×1440 on a 5.1-inch screen.
Hit the break for more.
With the newer Snapdragon 805 being all the rage as the processor to beat, other chipsets have a decent uphill battle facing them as they attempt to dethrone the Qualcomm chip. Only one has been able to do that so far, and that’s Nvidia’s Tegra K1. However if benchmarks are to be believed, the second chip to do so is the Exynos 5433. Codenamed “HelsinkiPro” the SoC is said to be an upgraded version of the Exyno 5430 — codenamed Helsinki. See what they did there?
Just yesterday, we got a look at the back of the Galaxy S 5 Zoom. And today we (sort of) have a look at the inside of Samsung’s camera variant for the Galaxy S 5. The people of SamMobile were able to obtain the device’s AnTuTu benchmarks as well as additional information. In doing so, they found out some more specifications for the GS5 Zoom, model number SM-C115. The focus is the camera so we will start there. On the back is a 20.2MP sensor and on the front is one with 2.1MP. It does have optical image stabilization (OIS) technology and 10x optical zoom. To make sure you do not run low on storage, Samsung has included a microSD card slot.
The display is 4.8 inches and SuperAMOLED HD technology with a 1280×720 resolution. Under the hood is Samsung’s Exynos 5 processor that has six cores with big.LITTLE HMP technology from ARM. And right out of the box, Samsung is giving the Galaxy S 5 Zoom the latest version of Android, 4.4.2 KitKat. The bump to Android 4.4.3 will likely come in over the summer.
