Leaked image provides us with a side view of the Nexus 5 (2015) and its 1.8mm camera hump

As you probably know by now, there will also be camera hump at the back of the phone. Thanks to a new leak that shows us the profile of the phone, we get to see exactly how much said volcano-shaped hump might be protruding from the device. Note that while the images look like your usual render, it is claimed that they are actually images of the real deal that have been edited so as the protect the original source.
According to the leaked dimensions of the handset - 146.9 x 72.9 x 8/9.8mm - it's fairly easy to deduct that the hump will be 1.8mm tall. On top of that, the handful of leaked images allegedly depicting the Nexus 5 (2015) seemingly confirm the hump won't be taller than the one on the render right below.
As a refresher, the device is expected to feature a 5.2-inch Quad HD display, a six-core Snapdragon 808 processor, 3 GB of RAM, and - of course - Android 6.0 Marshmallow. It might get unveiled on September 29 and cost $399 at launch.

Is it me or this year's Nexuses look weird, and it's coming from the manufacturers that are known to have good designs.

Google screwed up dude. A nexus 5 that looked just like the P8 and a Nexus 6 that looked just like the G4 pro would KILL. It would be easier than these totally ugly redesigns too.

Seriously, who started this thinnest craze?! 8mm thickness should be the standard, nothing more, nothing less, just 8.00000mm.

I'll rather get the Nexus 6 :) design wise, screen real estate, front facing speakers, and powerful enough performance wins for me.. I found the Nexus 5's design kinda rushed and I think it looks like a toy but performance wise and a new fingerprint scanner, and by the help of LG's signature features like laser AF, the latter have some edges too :)

Most users put a thin case on their back of there phones so the hump will not be a problem for most.

That's why outside of the tech press, nobody really cares that the iPhone 6 and Galaxy S6/Note5 have a camera hump. As long as that hump isn't enormous like the Lumia 1020, any case will flatten out the profile. And most people still use cases.

The only disappointing hump is the in the price: $399 is almost too expensive.

It's nowhere near what you'd pay for an unlocked G4 with similar specs and performance. I think $400 is the right price for an unlocked phone with good (if not stellar) specs. Between the Moto X Pure and the Nexus 5X, we have a new price model in the US.

actually, it's only $100 off the G4 price (which is around $500 unlocked). That said, I think this is VERY competitive at $400. The only disappointment is the perpetual lack of SD card, and the comparatively meager 13MP camera. That alone makes the G4 worth the $100 premium in my eyes.

Looks incredibly cheap just like the nexus 5 did. Glad I preordered a Moto x pure edition instead of waiting for this. The Moto has a much better build, customizable, larger screen, near stock android, fast updates, sd card support, probably a much better camera. Why even get a nexus when Moto covers the bases and then some. I guess if you absolutely have to have 100% pure android but imo Moto's build is even better with it gestures, always listening and adaptive display.

Why are all you idiots always whining about something as petty as a camera hump? Most camera humps look fine, it's no big deal, get over it children! Today's kids I tell ya, you gotta smack 'em good and smack 'em often to keep 'em in line.
