Nexus 5 2015
This years lead up to the release of a new Nexus phone has seen the fairly strong rumour appear that Google was working with two vendors for a dual Nexus phone release, with Huawei and LG both building devices. The Huawei Nexus is alleged to be a larger 5.7″ device, while the LG is a smaller 5.2″ phone. Tonight we’re seeing renders created by uSwitch in partnership with Steve Hemmerstoffer of @onleaks fame and based on measurements provided to case manufacturers.

The renders match up with details released by Steve earlier in the week which spoke about front-facing speakers on the phone and a rear mounted fingerprint sensor. The rear also has that slightly protruding camera lens arrangement that the Nexus 5 is famous for.

A view of the base of the phone shows a USB-C connector, which lines up with Google’s stance on pushing the new USB standard forward.

The render is still ‘based on detailed factory schematics provided to accessory-makers’ so it’s possible that some of the details are still not correct. There’s a lot of fan made LG Nexus 2015 renders floating around out there, including one member on reddit who released a gallery including a comparison to the original Nexus 5 and the Nexus 6:

Steve does have a fairly good track record, which was again given more credibility after the overnight announcement of the Galaxy Note 5 which he supplied a number of leaks for.

It comes down to pure fancy at this stage, until the new range of Nexus phones is announced most likely in October.

It’s going to have to be pretty good to top the moto x


The comparison image with the Nexus’s shows that the original Nexus 5 is still a good looking phone, with just the right amount of screen to bezel proportions. The render of the new Nexus 5 next to the 2013 N5 suggests how bezel heavy the 2015 N5 may be.

Anything more that 5” is a no ?


Type lumia 640 into google search… Looks almost identical.

Looks awesome, hope it’s real


Nexus 5 is suitably sleek but seems slightly too big in the side-by-side
what’s with power buttons being on the same side as the volume buttons?
