Nexus 5 is probably LG’s G2

LG made Nexus are the worst kept secrets in the mobile space (why keep it a secret when leaks generate more traffic and interest). The leaked Nexus 5 service manual gives more details on the upcoming Nexus 5 device. If one puts it along with LG’s FCC filing which went public recently one can easily connect the dots. There is little doubt that LG’s G2 is going to be the next Nexus device with some notable changes in the hardware.

The leaked documents expose the guts the hardware (thanks to Android Police). The device will have a 4.95″ 1080p IPS TFT display, 32GB internal storage, 2GB RAM, Snapdragon 800 at 2.3GHz,  8MP camera, 1.3MP front camera, 2300mAh battery other specs which matter include support for LTE (which was missing from Nexus 4). Once again there is no SD card support so a user is restricted to the storage that comes with the device.

Since Nexus 4 has disappeared from the Google Play Store and it’s time for the yearly Google hardware update, Nexus 5 will sure be the device to introduce Kit Kat.

  1. So the display is smaller, camera severely handicapped and the battery significantly weaker than the G2. I guess at least the speaker this time doesn’t look like it’s sitting on the rear side of it. May be able to finally hear some notifications when it’s sitting on its back.
