Following on from a stream of previous leaks Android Police are reporting on information received from a ‘reliable source’ – AP have a good reputation for quality information – that detail many of the rumoured specifications for the Nexus 5 2015. Google is rumoured to be working on two Nexus phones for this year the 5″ manufactured by LG and a 6″ model to be manufactured by Huawei. Remember as with all rumours, no matter the source – salt will be required when digesting the details.
According to the source, the new 5″ Nexus from LG will incorporate:
- 5.2″ FDH – 1080p – display, display type has not been confirmed eg. LCD vs AMOLED
- Snapdragon 808 processor
- 3GB of RAM
- 12.3 MP rear camera sensor – no details on OIS, flash or auto-focusing technology were elucidated
- 2700 mAh battery
- USB type C connector
- 16 and 32GB variants
- Available in black, white or blue.
That’s a fairly decent range of specs and lands the much-anticipated sequel to the popular – in some circles – Nexus 5 in the low to middle position of the high-end devices. No mention was made regarding materials, build quality or if it will continue Google’s recent trend of including Qi wireless charging in the Nexus line up.
Google has been fairly consistent with an October announcement for November availability of the Nexus phones over the past few years. However, the all knowing rumour’s have speculated that the 5″ Nexus could break cover as early as September. As always we will be keeping an eye out for all things Nexus so check back as the saga continues.
