The Nexus 5 2015 Finally Pictured in the Wild
John Williamson / 3 years ago
There has been a great deal of speculation surrounding the latest batch of Nexus handsets and early rumours indicate the production of two new models. Allegedly, Huawei is working on the larger 5.7-inch device while LG manufacturers a 5.2-inch version. Thankfully, we now have some credible evidence in the form of a user-picture showing an early sample of the 5.2-inch SKU.
The leaked photograph, provided by Marques Brownlee on Twitter, includes a small white label which appears to contain an LG logo. Additionally, the back is manufactured from Polycarbonate, uses a laser autofocus mechanism and doesn’t feature a rear speaker. The image appears to be genuine and resembles renders leaked last week. As you can see, there is a fingerprint scanner below the dual flash camera which has been reported on for some time. Currently, there’s no trustworthy sources outlining the handset’s specifications but this should be revealed fairly soon as more leaks emerge. In terms of availability, the LG unit is estimated to arrive during the fall of this year. Although, this is only a rough guess and could be wildly off the mark.
The original Nexus 5 sold incredibly well and was a great choice for consumers looking for a reasonably priced, high-specification device. Its successor is shaping up quite nicely but has tough competition in markets like China which contain a host of powerful, low-cost Android handsets.
