While it’s possible to manipulate benchmark listings to fabricate information about nonexistent devices. However, adding a brand-new SoC into such a listing is a significantly more tough task. Nonetheless, we would suggest our readers take the listing with a pinch of salt.

The listing details reveal that the Nubia smartphone, codenamed NX769J, runs on Android 14 and has the ‘pineapple’ motherboard, purportedly associated with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 testbed. We can see the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 achieving a single-core score of 1596 and a multi-core score of 5977 on Geekbench 5.
