A selfie posted online, believed to be taken with LG’s new Nexus 5, all but confirms the device will have a 5-megapixel front-facing camera.

The image above was posted to Google+ by a Google employee in the Quality Assurance division, TechTastic reports. Under the camera’s profile, it says “bullhead,” which is widely believed to be the codename of LG’s upcoming Nexus 5.

The employee’s name is not reported and his face is blurred out for obvious reasons, but all of the EXIF data remains intact, and confirms that “bullhead” will have a 5-megapixel camera with f/2.0 aperture on its front for sharp selfie photos. It also confirms this device is made by LG.

Recent reports have suggested the new Nexus 5 will have a 4-megapixel front-facing camera, so this leak will be pleasing to those who plan on picking up the new device. It’s not a massive difference, but it’s an improvement nonetheless.

Google is expected to announce the new Nexus 5 this fall, alongside a second Nexus smartphone from Huawei. The device is expected to have a Quad HD display, a Snapdragon 808 processor, a fingerprint scanner, and of course, Android 6.0 Marshmallow pre-installed.
