There has been no shortage of leaks that “claim” to show of LG’s new Nexus 5 smartphone. But from the past few months, we may have just hot the jackpot. The folks over at Android Police got their hands on a near-final draft of a service manual for the Nexus 5 that still bears the same LG D821 model number.
The document is packed full of diagrams, charts, and graphs, but there’s a lot to consider and pick out before you go diving into the document. We now have a new look at the device.
“The document also gives us a peek at most of the device’s specs, confirming and expanding upon recent rumors – here’s a quick rundown of what it reveals.
●4.95″ 1080p display (IPS TFT for those interested)
●32GB internal storage (other capacities not specified)
●MSM8974 aka Snapdragon 800 at 2.3GHz
●8MP OIS rear camera, 1.3MP front camera
●Sensors: Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Compass, Proximity/Ambient Light, Pressure
●Micro SIM slot
●Bluetooth 3.0 (We assume this is an error – Bluetooth 4.0 appears elsewhere in the document, but according to the last page it’s still a draft.)
Says Android Police. This document indicates the same dimensions as the Nexus 4, though, this is a draft so it is likely an error.
This is likely though an almost exact resemblance of what the Nexus 5, or whatever they call it, will be. This being said because of this right here:
“Update 10/6/13 8am PT: The manual and images from it have been taken down at LG’s request”
If LG requested the document to be removed, maybe its because they don’t want people to know about it? Indicating that this could be the Nexus 5. Same thing occurred when Google accidentally leaked an image of the Nexus 5 when they unveiled Android 4.4 KitKat.
“It also appears that the mysterious circle on the front of the device is in fact the earpiece – we still don’t have a clear view of it, but our assumption is that it’s just a uniquely designed speaker grill. We do get a peak at the camera and speaker modules though.”
What do you think? Will this be the new Nexus 5? And if so, will it be exactly like this and would you buy?
