The dual-Nexus phone release this year is getting closer, and another leak has appeared on Chinese social networking site Weibo, which outlines specs for the phone.
The leak is Chinese in origin, but according to G For Games, the source has a decent history with leaks about chipsets and they like what they’re seeing. Still, this is still a rumour, so keep that grain of salt handy.
The leak involves what is said to have been running in the ‘July’s Nexus 5’, though how many hardware iterations they would go through at this stage of the game is unclear. Headline specs include a Snapdragon 808 processor, 3GB of LPDDR3 RAM, 13MP IMX278 Sony Camera sensor with LG G4 camera quality and tech including Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) and laser auto-focus.
Additional (as per Alan in the comments):
- Display: 5.2″ 2K display
- Camera: The same OIS as LG G4, laser auto focus, image quality better than Huawei Nexus
- Fingerprint: Fingerprint recognition supported
While the leak doesn’t speak about other specs like the rear mounted fingerprint sensor and 5.2″ FHD resolution screen, but this is still rumour territory. Our closest look at the phone has come from Google+ a week ago, showing a prototype model:
The Nexus phones are generally announced in October, so it’s still around two months away from launch. The phones generally don’t actually arrive in market until November but at least we should be able to end the speculation in the next couple of months.
