GizmoChina is claiming that the Nexus 5 2015 (said to be made once again by LG) specs have been leaked online. The Chinese tech website offers up the leaked specs but doesn’t give a source or link to where those specs came from. As we near closer to any smartphones’s release, there are bound to be leaks here and there. It’s often hard to verify said leaks and nail down sources in these cases so leaks. As such, rumors should be taken with a huge grain of salt. In the case of this leak, it looks more like someone could be pulling GizmoChina’s chain but one can never tell. Here’s the breakdown as published by GizmoChina.
According to the leak, the new Nexus 5 will feature a 5.2-inch full HD 1080p P-OLED display, the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 620 (MSM8976) processor, up to 4GB of LPDDR3-1866 RAM, up to 64GB of eMMC 5.1 internal storage, a 3180mAh non-removable battery, a MediaTek MT3188 wireless charging receiver, and a Marvell Avastar 88W8897 connectivity chipset for 802.11ac Wi-Fi, NFC, and Bluetooth 4.2.
The leak also reveals that the new Nexus 5 will be equipped with front stereo speakers, a rear power button with integrated fingerprint sensor, a 13-megapixel rear camera with an IMX278 RGBW sensor, a 6-element f/1.8 aperture lens, OIS, laser autofocus, and a dual-tone LED flash, a 4-megapixel front-facing camera with an OV4682 RGB-IR sensor and Iris Detection, a USB Type-C connector with QuickCharge 2.0.
While most all tech websites report on leaks and rumors, they are generally backed up by a source that supplies those leaks and rumors. At the very least if a source gives you a leak or rumor, it is stated that the leak or rumor is from a trusted anonymous source. In this case GizmoChina says these specs were leaked online but provides no link back to the source making this one a little bit hard to swallow.
