2015 LG Nexus 5 picture surfaces: large camera, fingerprint scanner
This new render portrays an LG-made new Nexus phone
The new family of Nexus phones is coming.
With all leaks and rumors in the past few days, we have a very comprehensive of the two yet unofficial phones: a 5.2-inch LG-made Nexus and a 5.7-inch Huawei Nexus phablets.
The majority of the information comes from Steve Hammerstoffer, aka @onleaks, a leakster with a nearly spotless track record. So what are the new Nexus phones about? Both devices are said to share three key features
: front-facing dual speakers, a fingerprint reader on their back, and a USB Type C connector.
An LG-made 5.2-inch Nexus phone
Today's hot topic, though, is the newly surfaced render of the 5.2-inch LG Nexus (aka the 2015 Nexus 5, pictured above). This render shows a Nexus phone that doesn't skip on any essential features: one can see the protruding camera, which suggests a large camera sensor (which in turn should be good news for photography enthusiasts), then there are what looks like an LED flash cutout and a secondary one that could be an infra-red focus assist light, and finally, there is the fingerprint scanner right below the main camera.
We've earlier seen the following dimensions for this alleged LG Nexus:
- 5.2” LG Nexus dimensions: 146.9 x 72.9 x 8/9.8mm
The varying thickness seems to indicate that at its thickest - that is the camera bulge part - the phone is 9.8mm thick, while all the rest of the body measures a fairly thin 8mm. We've also earlier heard that the LG Nexus might have a metal frame, but a plastic back, and this image seems to play along with this assumption.
When it comes to specs and features, the LG Nexus should run on the newest Android 6.0 Marshmallow, feature a Snapdragon 808 system chip with 3GB of RAM, and a 13-megapixel camera with optical stabilization.
