A draft of the service manual for the LG Nexus 5
has leaked out revealing what could be the legitimate specs for the phone. The manual is made up of 281 pages including a diagram of the phone, which resembles a smaller LG G2
without the buttons on the back. The rear of the phone matches what we saw on that infamous picture taken the day that the KitKat statue was unveiled at the Googleplex
. The Nexus name looks like it does on the back of the Nexus 7 (2013)
, except that it is oriented differently.

But surely you want to hear about the specs. The 4.95 inch IPS display offers resolution of 1080 x 1920 and a quad-core 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor (MSM8947) will be under the hood. 2GB of RAM will be on board with 32GB of native storage inside. The device will be powered by a 2300mAh cell that can be recharged wirelessly. On back will be an 8MP shooter with OIS and a 1.3MP front-facing snapper will take selfies and supports video chats. The LG Nexus 5 will come with NFC enabled. And yes, this time around there will be LTE connectivity.
As usual when we pass along something of this magnitude to you, we ask that you use a skeptical eye when reading this. There are some reasons to think that this is not on the level such as the conflicting Bluetooth specs on pages 8 and 11. Still, there is nothing that stands out as being too ridiculous to believe specs-wise and the pictures and diagrams match up with what we have been expecting.
If you have nothing else to do on a Saturday night, all 281 pages of the manual are below, waiting for you to go through each and every page. If you don't have the time, you can check out the slideshow directly underneath the manual.
