The new smartphone Nexus can again get the name Nexus 5 (2014), by analogy with the tablet Nexus 7 (2013). At least, according to the results of tests in Annex GFXBench. However, this is hardly the biggest surprise: much more interesting name for the next version of Android, running on the device – Android 5.0 Lion.
It is necessary, however, to remember that the source (emtleaks) can not boast of authoritativeness so that these data may not be justified. After rumors that the next version of the Google Android platform will get codename Lollipop (lollipop), and then – Lemon Meringue Pie (lemon cake covered with meringue), we now hear the name of the Lion (Leo). Despite the fact that at first glance did not name for sweets, it is not so.
It is worth remembering that in the context of promotion of Android 4.4 KitKat, Google has combined marketing efforts with Nestle. Why companies do not continue the successful cooperation with under another popular sweets Nestle – chocolate bars Lion? In this version of the platform jump to 5.0 is quite expected, given the fundamental “real” rethinking the design of OS, the emergence of a new runtime application ART, Energy Optimization Project Volta and other important innovations. That all sounds logical, but still worth to consider that while we are talking only about the rumors.
Meanwhile, in addition to the name of the screenshot Nexus 5 (2014), and Android 5.0 Lion tells the characteristics of the future flagship smartphone Google:
- 5,2-inch display with a resolution of 1440 × 2560 (Quad HD);
- 4-core Snapdragon processor with a frequency of 805 to 2.7 GHz and Adreno 420 graphics;
- 3 GB of RAM;
- 32 GB of internal flash memory;
- 12-megapixel main camera with autofocus and flash, video recording support 4K and HDR photos .
- 2-megapixel front-facing camera with support for video recording Full HD.
In general, these data are consistent with previous rumors about the smartphone codenamed Motorola Shamu (or Google Shamu) , which supposedly would be whether the first device Android Silver line and will be sold under the brand Moto S, then there will be named Nexus 6. screen and processor devices are the same, but the resolution of the camera are a little different – 13 megapixels and 2.1 megapixels.
