Motorola's much-anticipated 'Shamu' handset, also believed to be the next Nexus smartphone, has been reportedly spotted in benchmark listings, and compared with some flagship devices.
A Dutch publication has posted the alleged GFXBench test results of the yet-to-be-announced Motorola Shamu.
The alleged Motorola Shamu benchmark results show an impressive 714 frames per second score in the onscreen GFXBench test which is close to the OnePlus One. Other flagships following the alleged Shamu include Samsung Galaxy S5, HTC One (M8), Sony Xperia Z2, and LG G3.
Unfortunately, the alleged Motorola Shamu benchmark listing does not reveal much about the innards of the smartphone.
Earlier leaks have indicated that the next Nexus smartphone built by Motorola will sport a 5.9-inch display and come with a fingerprint sensor. Further, the next Nexus smartphone is said to be released in November and would head to major mobile carriers in the US along with other regions.
Last month, the next iteration of the Nexus phone was spotted at the Google issue tracker, which showed the 'Shamu' reference for a device. A report claimed that the user who filed the bug with 'Shamu' reference in the Google issue tracker was a company named, Spirent Communications, a company that tested devices for errors.
For those unaware, Google has already revealed plans for launching Nexus 5's successor, and as per Sundar Pichai, would arrive sometime in the second half of 2014.
Recently, the alleged HTC-made Nexus 8 tablet, previously referred to as 'volantis/ flounder', surfaced online with T1 codename, and was said to come with Android L out-of-the-box.
