This slick Nexus 5 (2015) concept video is based on up-to-date leaks and info
posted by Ben R. / Aug 18, 2015, 7:56 PM
This concept goes the whole hog, polished with a pianistic melody running through the background. But where dreamy designs and renderings are commonplace, at least this effort is backed by some reliable, leaked evidence. Utilizing the recent info from OnLeaks, the clip essentially retells the story over three dimensions, giving us perhaps our most intimate glimpse of the LG-made Nexus so far.
It would appear that the camera will protrude (boo!), but the device may sport a USB Type-C connector, a fingerprint sensor and dual speakers beaming from the front. As shown in the concept, it's also probable that the device will be available in black and white, and we keenly await further information.
Hopefully, it won't be too long before we can see this thing for real, on an official stage.

I feel like all phones are starting to look the same. I can't feel excited about a rectangle anymore

You can still feel excitement for what's on the inside. For instance it will be great to have a device like the nexus 5 with its wireless charging, only this time it will be a 64 bit nexus 5, with a finger print scanner, QHD, 13 or more mp camera, USB c, and more. The other thing is if LG can hit the same price point of the original nexus 5. That is real excitement on my wallet. ;-)

If it uses the snapdragon 620 it would be all for not. I can't buy a device with a 620 like I can never buy a laptop with an i3 instead of an i5. Although I built my HTPC with an i3 because you don't need an i5 to stream, play blue Rays, and YouTube. Plus the power savings and heat saving would make my HTPC last longer.

But the 820 wont be available this year according to Qualcomm 810 overheats 620's CPU will be faster than the 808's 620's GPU will likely be similar to the 808's Radios of the 620 is slower (Cat 7 LTE, 300 down/100 up), but its likely your carrier doesn't provide Cat 9 LTE (450 Mbps) anyway The 620 doesn't support USB 3.0, but no phone uses USB 3.0 anyway, expect the Note 3 Also BTW most laptop i3s are very similar to their equivalent laptop i5s i3s are just worse bins, so they have slightly reduce clockspeed (both are dual cores with 4 threads, same iGPU/cache) Unless you mean the H i5 or MQ/HQ i5s, Then yea there's the big difference of better iGPU and/or quad core

@PA: what Google doesn't realise is that most of the nexus fanbase are mature, not some hipsters who'd be willing to blast out music on the loudspeaker (who does that when they can use headphones?) Just adding unnecessary bulk on the bezels and uglier look....already the camera hump is thick on a thick phone. But I'll still be eyeing on that , the Huawei nexus and xperia Z5 if that 's announced within the same month.

I totally agree about the speakers. Such a waste of bezel space. If I'm listening to sound coming from my phone its almost always when I'm someplace where other people don't want you listen to what I'm listening to.

It's a very short sighted answer. I have a nexus an I use it as a GPS in my car, in that case you need loud speakers, on the front preferable (facing you when driving). Also I use it in the bathroom to play podcasts, or in the kitchen while I cook...

Looks boring, but I guess looks aren't top priority for the Nexus line.

I agree. If the most talked about rumor is correct the new Nexus 5 will have a 1080p AMOLED powered by a 3,180mAh battery so battery life should be really good. If it ends up being something like a QHD IPS LCD powered by a 2,700-2,800mAh battery then the battery life will likely be similar to the first Nexus 5.

Considering the screen in G4 which is 5.5" QHD Quantum IPS drains about as much as G2 5.2" FHD IPS, I don't think we have to worry about the display, as long as it uses newest technology. The real problem will be the chip.

I can't believe how ugly this phone concept is. My current Nexus 5 looks 10x better compared to this.... Both Nexus 5 and Nexus 6 had really good bezel sizes. I would be shocked if this phone had screen-to-body ratio smaller than 72%
