LG and Huawei are both involved in crafting Nexus smartphones for Google at the moment. The one made by the former company has been revealed in the past to be smaller than the one made by the latter, and we have just been treated to a new set of leaked specs of the LG handset.
It’s being referred to as the Nexus 5 (2015), as the original Nexus 5 too was made by the same firm, and a large number of fans have been demanding a successor to that smartphone. That’s because the extremely large 6-inch display of the Nexus 6 didn’t quite go down well with them.
The original Nexus 5 from 2013 came with a 5-inch display. Its 2015 variant is being expected to grab a 5.2-inch panel. This screen will apparently showcase its visuals in 1080p full HD resolution, which is great news for those worrying about its battery life.
Android Police has learned from its sources that a 2700mAh battery will be powering the LG device from within. A Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 chipset will be making its way into this Google offering, complete with its hexa core processor (two high-powered A57 cores and four low-powered A53 cores) and an Adreno 418 GPU.
Accompanying this setup will be 3GB worth of RAM. As for the camera of the Nexus 5 (2015), an unusual 12.3MP sensor is being touted to have been placed on its rear surface, with a standard 5MP selfie camera available as well. As past leaks have confirmed, a fingerprint scanner will indeed be granted to this smartphone.
The LG Nexus 5 (2015) is expected to be unveiled by the end of September, but there are no details at hand regarding its price.
