Nexus rumours all begin heating up at this end of the year. With a scant two and a half months left before we should hear something along the lines of an official announcement, there’s always a few rumours and ‘leaks’ along the way. Leaker ‘@onleaks’, better known as Steve Hemmerstoffer from Nowhereelse.fr has tweeted a ‘drawing’ of what he claims is the upcoming LG Nexus 5 2015.
The picture is fairly rudimentary but if real, shows the button placement – which have been moved to the side – with what we assume is a hole for a circular fingerprint sensor located just below a centre mounted camera. To the left of what’s assumed to be the camera position we see a fairly large square hole where a flash – and maybe some goodies like heart-rate sensor or laser auto-focus would fit nicely. At the base of the phone we see a smallish cut-out for a physical connection which should be USB-C based on talk from Google at I/O in May.

So far, the rumours for 2015 Nexus devices includes no plans for a tablet, but plans for two phones including a Huawei built Nexus (Angler) with a 5.7″ QHD resolution screen and a premium metal body with Snapdragon 820 SoC and a second LG built Nexus phone (Bullhead), which is rumoured to be smaller, more ‘Nexus 5 like’ at 5.2″ in size, but beyond that we have no further information.
For the past three years, we’ve seen a mid-October announcement of the Nexus devices, before they hit the market in November. We’re sure to see some more information or leaks on both devices if they’re real in the next couple of months, so stay tuned.
