The Nexus 5 has apparently been spotted in GFX Bench benchmarks ahead of its official launch, revealing some specs in the process.

Just like with every other benchmark we’ve seen for unreleased devices, we’ll remind you that while this looks promising, it’s not an official confirmation for the Nexus 5.

Listed as the Google Nexus 5, the device has a 2.3 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC with Adreno 330 GPU and a Full HD display, according to GFX Bench – the listed resolution is actually at 1794 x 1080 instead of 1920 x 1080, with the difference most likely accounting for the on-screen menu buttons.

The codename for the handset is listed as “Hammerhead,” and the device is supposedly running Key Lime Pie – although we now know that Key Lime Pie was used internally at Google in order to keep KitKat secret.

However, there’s no mention of LG, and while we suspect that the next Nexus handset will be made by LG, we have no way of verifying that at this time.

Google is rumored to unveil the Nexus 5 alongside Android 4.4 KitKat in mid-October, but by then we’ll certainly be back with more Nexus 5 details.
