According to a new rumor, the upcoming LG Nexus 5 smartphone will launch with an OIS or Optical Image Stabilization camera. This is certainly exciting news for fans of Nexus smartphones which don’t usually brag of good cameras, although the LG Nexus 4 was a surprise exception. The rumored Nexus 5 was torn down for its FCC filing and some keen observers have spotted that the camera sensor does pack OIS with a gyro sensor to support smooth video capture.
This makes more sense considering that the Nexus 5 is going to be based off the LG G2, which also packs an OIS camera on board. However, as this is a rumor, we can expect it to go either way. There’s still time left for the launch of the Nexus 5, with some reports claiming a late 2013 release. The handset is rumored to sport a 4.96 inch 1080p display, a 13MP camera sensor, a Snapdragon 800 SoC, Android 4.4 KitKat, 2GB of RAM and a paltry 2,300 mAh battery.
