According to a leak by @emtleaks, the Nexus 5 (2014) has surfaced on GFXBench. The source has leaked a screenshot revealing that the device will arrive with a 5.2 inch display with a Quad HD 2560×1440 pixel resolution. Under the hood, it is likely to employ a Snapdragon 805 processor clocked at 2.7 GHz paired with Adreno 420 graphics unit and 3 GB of RAM. Other aspects suggested by the leaked screenshot are 32 GB of internal storage capacity, 12 MP primary camera at the back and 2 MP front-facer.

While the previous rumors have hinted at Android Lollipop and Lemon Meringue Pie, this new leak claims that it is Android 5.0 Lion. Moreover, the previous leaked by the source were not up to the standard tipping that this could be a fabrication. However, Google had partnered with Nestle for v4.4 KitKat and there are increased chances for the search engine giant to team up with Nestle again to explore yet another sweet treat Lion.
