A new leak coming from Chinese social media website Weibo is hinting at what hardware the rumored LG Nexus 5 will be sporting. We’ve seen many rumors regarding the Huawei-made Nexus 6 recently, but now the LG Nexus 5 is taking the spotlight with some impressive specifications.
The device is said to feature a Snapdragon 808 chipset, a 5.2-inch 2K display, 3GB of LPDDR3 RAM, and a 13-megapixel IMX278 Sony rear-camera. Past leaks have pointed towards the Nexus 5 sporting a fingerprint scanner on the back of the device as well as having USB Type-C.
Some other details say that the LG Nexus 5 will feature the same OIS technology in the LG G4’s camera. It’s also said that the camera will have laser focus and will take better stills than the Huawei Nexus 6.
Keep in mind that these are just rumors and nothing official. Fall’s about to hit, and we’re rapidly getting closer to around the time Google announces its yearly Nexus handset refresh. That said, leaks like these will no doubt become more commonplace as we get closer to an official unveiling.
LG’s Nexus 5 and Huawei’s Nexus 6 are both rumored to debut this year. Which one will you be rooting for?
