Despite no official reveal of a handset, we know that Chinese heavyweight Huawei is building the new Nexus flagship smartphone for Google. We also know it is likely to be a juggernaut of leading specs and performance, and that was confirmed as the handset passed through the GeekBench benchmark software.Codenamed the Huawei Angler, the Nexus device will come with Qualcomm's current flagship chipset, the Snapdragon 810. That 64-bit silicon is accompanied an Adreno 430 GPU, although it still comes with issues with overheating if some reports are to be believed. Accompanying the Snapdragon 810 will be 3GB of RAM, a pretty standard configuration these days at the upper end of the market. The handset is rumored to be called the Huawei Nexus 6 and it will be the first smartphone to arrive with Google's new Android 6.0 Marshmallow on board.
