After yesterday’s official unveiling of the Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge+ handsets at the Unpacked event, you would be forgiven for not wanting to read about another Samsung product for a while. Luckily, we have some news (and renders) about LG’s upcoming Nexus 5 (2015 edition) handset that should give some welcome respite.
The serial leaker, @OnLeaks and (sponsor?) @uSwitchTech, have published some renders that are purported of LG’s next Nexus device. The renders are apparently based on the detailed schematics that are provided to accessory-makers to ensure that third-party accessories fit the handset when it’s released.
According to the renders, the LG Nexus 5 (2015 edition) will sport a fingerprint scanner on the rear (to make use of Android M’s native support for fingerprint scanners), a protruding camera bump as well as a 5.2-inch display, as previously leaked.
There appears to be dual front-facing speakers, as well as a USB Type-C charging port. The Nexus 5 (2015 edition) will allegedly have dimensions of 146.9 x 72.9 x 8mm, although it is 9.8mm at its thickest point around the camera bump. It’s uncertain whether the handset will feature a full metal construction, or just a metal frame and a polycarbonate rear panel. As for when the LG Nexus 5 (2015 edition) will be announced, we are probably looking at the traditional October/November period, when Android M is also set to be launched. Check out the rest of the renders in the gallery below.
