"Bullhead" selfie reveals a 5MP front-facing camera for the Nexus 5 (2015)
posted by Alan F. / Aug 22, 2015, 9:36 AM
The data shows that the front-facing camera on the Nexus 5 (2015) will be a 5MP snapper (1944 × 2592) with an aperture of f/2.0. That will allow the camera to take quality photos even under less than optimal low-light conditions.
Exif data can be faked, so we do suggest that you use your skeptical eye for this story. As you can see, the image is blurred to protect the identity of the Google employee who shot the selfie. Coordinates shown with the data reveal that the photo was snapped at the Googleplex in Mountain View.
Last week, a number of leaked images revealed the design of the 5.2-inch Nexus (2015), including the protruding rear camera hump. If Google adheres to tradition, the phone should be introduced sometime in the second half of October.
Thanks for the tip!

Where there is smoke there is fire and the smoke suggests a ghetto Moto X play 615 or the newer 620.

Fast lens is not enough they need to put soft led flash (not overly powerful led flash that will hurt uor eyes). Because led light will not only far more reliable in low light but also can help you take better photos in backlight conditions.

The backlight condition is the only case where LED is useful. In low light, flash produces unnatural cold shots that simply look awful, especially with people in them. And even in those strong backlight, HDR works better than flash. In last 4 years, the only instances I used flash on my phone is as a torch.

I think you're just making it up, I have used a flash on my phone for taking photos since 2006 until today. But i never get a pictures that looks so awful even when there is people in them. And cold and unnatural images is still better than dark looking images that full of noise. You can manually set the WB or using live effect/filters to get warmer looking images with flash and sometimes i also put a white or colored paper on the flash. In very strong backlight the HDR will not really effective because the dynamic range in smartphone camera isn't that good + there is also a risk of blurry when you use HDR. Smartphone is a versatile tool that is designed to satisfy all kinds of users, for you flash is not really important but for me it's a must have features. That is why for me fast lens alone is not enough.

The only reason that I'm leaning towards waiting for it to upgrade my venerable Nexus 5, which is starting to show signs of age even before its 2nd anniversary, is that the other replacements I'm considering lack VOLTE. Without VOLTE, a phone is unlikely to use band 12, if it's supported, with T-mobile. As a matter of fact, like the Moto E and G, it might even lose band 12 because of lacking VOLTE. Here's to hope.

With the alleged specs, don't expect a sub $400 phone. Min price will be at least $500, with top storage level topping out around $600. The Huawei model (if it exists) will probably pick up where the Nexus 5 leaves off.
