Strange benchmark says Google is making a laptop that runs on… Android Wear?

Benchmark tests often reveal details about unreleased devices, but at the same time, they can be manipulated to show such “leaked” details about unreleased devices. A rather strange Google Nexus Foo device has been spotted on benchmark site GFXBench, Phone Arena reports, revealing what appears to be a 10.3-inch non-tablet device that’s apparently running a version of Android Wear OS.

According to the information available on the site, the Nexus Foo’s display will have a 1920 x 1080 resolution, and the Nexus Foo (laptop?) will pack a 1.9GHz NVIDIA Tegra 4 processor 16GB of storage, 2GB of RAM, front-facing camera, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and Android KKWT (or Android Wear).

The device apparently comes with OpenGL ES 2.0 support rather than OpenGL 3.0, which is what’s expected from tablets running at least Android 4.3 – Android L will support OpenGL 3.1.

The device does not have a rear-facing camera, or various sensors that are usually found on tablets, including an accelerometer, GPS, compass, gyroscope, light sensor, NFC or proximity sensor.

Google is expected to launch later this year a Nexus 9 tablet (made by HTC), and a Nexus 6 smartphone (made by Motorola), according to various existing rumors and reports.

However, a 10.3-inch Nexus Foo device has not appeared in any other Google-related rumors so far, aside from this GFXBench sighting.

An image showing the GFXBench listing for the Google Nexus Foo follows below.
