New Nexus 5 (2015) leak shows the phone from a new angle

A new photo of the LG Nexus 5 (2015) has showed up, portraying the right side and the back of the phone. For the larger part, LG has kept the minimalist design of the Nexus 5 (2015)’s predecessor.


Naturally, there are differences – the phone looks noticeably thinner and got a fingerprint sensor below the camera bump, as we saw not too long ago. The Nexus logo is still present. The side Power/Lock and volume rocker buttons also look to be ceramic for a second year in a row.

The source of the photo, who sent it to AndroidPit hasn’t confirmed if the Nexus 5 (2015) sports a metal frame, but has hinted the phone might be officially named the LG Nexus 5X.

The new LG Nexus is said to sport a 5.2-inch 1080p touchscreen, a 12.3/5 MP camera combo and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 chipset. RAM is set at 3GB of RAM, storage options are 16 and 32GB and the whole thing is going to be powered by a 2,700 mAh battery.

There’s still some time to come until the end of September when Google is expected to announce the LG and Huawei Nexus smartphones.
