New LG Nexus 5 (2015) cases pop up in the wild, once again confirm the expected design
Leaks regarding the LG Nexus 5 (2015) are freely flying around for just anyone to grab, with renders and specs aplenty. Although we're not quite sure when when the smaller of the two upcoming Nexus devices will get official, we already have a pretty good idea of what it will look like, as it has been allegedly leaked numerous times.

Just a few days ago, several cases built for the new Nexus 5 leaked, once again giving us some serious hints about the probable final design of the handset. Today we have a fresh new batch of protective gear for LG's second crack at making a stock Android phone for Google. The new cases are of the rugged type and are listed on online retailer Oppomart's website, where they carry a $8.99 price tag.

The new cases once again confirm that the device will feature a camera hump at the back, as well as a fingerprint reader right beneath. A dual flash and laser autofocus can once again be found to the left of the rear camera. 

As far as the specs of the Nexus 5 (2015) are concerned, we expect a 5.2-inch screen at the front, but the rest of the specs are still only a subject for hearsay and rumors.

Yay for front facing speakers but that front is ugly. Why the hell is the side bezel that thick?

That's not an official rendering. It's using the same official wallpaper as the Nexus 6 and layout

Probably not an official render, but probably pretty close. Only thing that's the same is the wallpaper, but the speakers on the front do not match the Nexus 6.

Do not trust Oppomart. I buy two time from oppomart first time they sent me a new phone, second time a used phone, I sent back and they stole me 400 euro on refound. ā€œIā€™m sorry the packet arrived empty are you sure you put the phone inside?ā€ Come on!

Why isnt the laser autofocus on the other side of the camera? It looks so ugly and off
