New image of Nexus 5 (2015) prototype shows off the camera hump and fingerprint scanner
A leaked image, allegedly of a Nexus 5 (2015) prototype, reveals the back of the rumored device. Besides what appears to be a plastic build and the Nexus logo, we can see a slight hump where the camera is located. Under the camera is a circular area that is believed to be the fingerprint scanner. And while we would still take this story with the proverbial grain of salt, there does seem to be some sort of sticker affixed to the device that contains the LG logo.

The images do dovetail with previous renders that we have seen of the device. Those images also came with speculation that the screen will measure 5.2-inches. A larger-screened Nexus model is said to be in the works from Huawei, measuring in the range of 5.5-inches to 5.7-inches.

The rear camera that we see on the Nexus 5 (2015) prototype is believed to have a 16MP or 20.7MP sensor. We can see the dual LED flash, and the laser autofocus that will apparently be employed on the device.

So far, LG has been mum about this stock Android handset. Traditionally, new Nexus models have been unveiled in the second half of October, which gives us about eight weeks to run down as many leaks as we can.

Thanks for the tip!
