Already OnePlus 2, and Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy Edge Plus are unveiled but still the anticipation about the new Smartphone releases us undeniable. Among the list, the Google’s Nexus 5 (2015) or Nexus 5 (Second Generation) is one of the two Nexus devices that we are expecting to be launched in the coming one or two months. The smaller device which I’ve mentioned above is the smaller device and will be built by LG and the other device will be a larger one and more powerful Huawei Nexus. Let’s get into the details of the LG Nexus 5.
Nexus 5 2015 Specifications:
There is lot of rumors about the processor range of the Smartphone but many claimed that the mobile is packed with QUALCOMM’s Snapdragon 808. Also comes with 3GB of RAM along with 16GB/32GB of internal memory versions. The mobile is set to feature a 5.2-inch Full HD Display and USB Type-C. From other sources we have got the other details of specs which include a decent 2700mAh battery, 12.3MP rear camera and 5MP front camera, black, white and blue color options. Reportedly, the 2015 Nexus camera won’t come with the similar quality as the LG G4 but certainly better than the Nexus 6 and reportedly the mobile is set to launch under the sub-US$400 range. The above specs posted by the Android Police also match with the latest leaked screenshot posted on the Chinese website Weibo. The image indicates the Nexus 5 will come with Hexa-core Snapdragon 808 Processor (the same chipset that powers the LG G4), 3GB of RAM, a 5.2-inch 2K display but did not reveal anything about the screen resolution and Sony’s 13MP IMX278 camera sensor on rear.

The most recent leak of the Nexus 5 2015 design came from Indonesian Google+ user Inno Yudah and shows the back of the device (as seen at the top of this article). The handset has a similar design to what can be seen in the CAD video below and seems to confirm that a device with this design is indeed in the works. Whether this is what the final version of the Nexus 5 (2015) will look like, we can’t say just yet. Though the new Nexus 5 2015 seems to be a different device completely different to previous devices in the LG series. Earlier, Twitter leaker @OnLeaks tweeted the video below of a CAD render presumed to depict the Nexus 5 (2015). It is in line with a previous case render (also leaked by @OnLeaks, and shown above), which revealed two circular cut-outs on the rear of the device.
