Check out this video showing a 3D concept rendering of the Nexus 5 (2015)

Smit sees the Nexus 5 (2015) equipped with a 5.2-inch screen, carrying a 1080 x 1920 FHD resolution screen. This would provide users with a pixel density of 424ppi. The Snapdragon 820 chipset would be under the hood, featuring an octa-core CPU. 4GB of DDR4 RAM is inside, according to Smit's concept, and the unit would be available with internal memory ranging from 32GB to 128GB. The dual camera set up on back will be anchored by a 16MP sensor, with selfies and video chats taken care of by the 5MP snapper found on the front of the device. A USB Type-C port is included, and the whole shebang is powered by a 2860mAh cell.
Smit's concept rendering of the Nexus 5 (2015) reveals a screen with thin bezels, and a sleek, shiny design. You can check it out for yourself by tapping on the video below. Also, check out the slideshow for a look at the cases that Smit based his rendering on.
Thanks for the tip!

not sure why a nexus device needs dual rear cameras. it seems more like a feature for a gimmick phone.

There are very legit reasons for a dual camera. Different sensors specializing in different things making a composite image.

I agree with you. Nexus are devices to show android features and, as Android M brags to have built in fingerprint implementation, it makes sense to have one in the next nexus. Dual cameras are actually usefull, but does M doesn't have anything new on this field.

The leaked case photos only show the top hole jutting out for camera housing, the second hole below that is flush. There is definitely a camera on top, but most likely a fingerprint scanner on the bottom. The flash and LG’s laser focus can fit in the square to the left. I highly doubt it will have a dual camera setup. This mockup of the back is more accurate: i.imgur.com/lpYNud3.jpg

If it comes out this year it's not going to have a 820

There's conflicting rumours/reports as to when the SD820 will be ready. Some say the first devices launching with the 820 will be launched in November, and the other saying Q1 or Q2 2016. If the former, then this years Nexus could potentially have the SD820 as it's normally annouced in October and released in November.

Fingerprint scanners do not belong on the backs of phones. >=[

This concept was made with that 1 picture. Only from the rear. Now that i have seen some different shots i would have changed a view things. For the square i might think that it will house the LED dual or with this color thing on the LG G4 and a Laser focus. (because there is not cutout in this case for a LED else. And then dual camera. Someone sad a logo that wouldn't make sense because covers never show the logo. But it could also be that the round below is the fingerprint scanner.
