As probably most of you know by now, word on the street is that Google will release not one but two Nexus smartphones this year. One of them will allegedly be manufactured by LG (the 2015 edition of the Nexus 5) while the other is in the works in Huawei’s camp (the 2015 Nexus 6 edition).
A lot of sources have independently talked about the 2 Nexuses, and so many leaks have surfaced that almost everybody is convinced that they are real (yes, us included).
During this past week, it seemed like the Huawei made Nexus is the media darling, partly because of the avalanche of leaked renders and hands-on images that have surfaced. However, tonight, the LG Nexus 5 makes a comeback.
Take a look below and join us for the entire story.
What you’re looking at allegedly are the main hardware specs used by the LG Nexus 5 prototypes. Before delving right into it, we should mention that this leak comes from the same source that has recently provided Geekbench results for a lot of next gen mobile chipsets. If this makes it a reliable source … everyone can judge for himself.
Ok, with that out of the way, the above leak claims that the July prototypes of LG Nexus 5 were powered by a Snapdragon 808 SoC and featuring a 5.2-inch 2K display, 3GB of LPDDR3 RAM and a 13MP IMX278 Sony sensor.
The leak also mentions that the new Nexus 5 features (or at least the July prototypes did) the same OIS tech that can be found in LG’s G4, laser focus, and that it takes better pics than Huawei’s Nexus. It is also claimed that it will feature a fingerprint recognition module, which was pretty much already established.
Would you be interested in an LG-made Nexus 5 with the above configuration?
