Earlier this month Google announced the version 5.1 update to Android Lollipop. Today the company revealed that several new devices launching in the Philippines would ship with the new operating system, but the rollout plan for the rest of the world was still unknown.

Now a new Geekbench test has provided us with the first evidence of Android 5.1 running on a flagship device. The benchmark for an LG Nexus 5 appeared on the site today, listing the upcoming build of Android as the device’s OS.

The phone scored a 2997, which is just slightly north of the where the same model scored on Android 5.0. Keep an eye on 9to5Google for continued updates on the new operating system’s release, including our complete running list of new features.
