Android 5.2 running Nexus 5 appears online

While most people in the US and rest of the world are still waiting for the Android 5.0 Lollipop update, there are already 5.1 and 5.2 sightings and rumors.Where Android’s latest OS – 5.0 Lollipop – is still only found on almost 1.6% of the devices across the globe, Google looks to be in a hurry to rush with subsequent updates, something Android users have become accustomed to now.

A few days ago we reported that Android 5.1 is now official and is already shipping with Android One devices, but a benchmark test suggests that the Nexus 5 might possibly be given another OS update. This time, it could get the alleged Android 5.2 operating system.

Android 5.2 running on Nexus 5 in benchmark test result

The results of a Geekbench benchmark test dated Feb. 17 posted online shows details of an LG Nexus 5 that runs using the still unreleased Android 5.2 OS. Based on the benchmark report, the LG-manufactured smartphone from Google managed to get speed test scores of 934 on single-core and 2992 on multi-cores.

Of course it is natural that Nexus devices are first in line for every iteration of Google's mobile OS, but the jump from 5.1 to 5.2 in such a short time frame is a little bit odd, especially seeing how AOSP branches currently only reach version 5.0.2. We certainly wouldn't rule it out though with one possible explanation being a major bug fix or perhaps even a big new feature. There is, however also the possibility of a custom ROM intentionally reporting a false Android version.
