New Nexus 5 specs leak to reveal a powerful rear camera

We’re pretty excited about the new Nexus 5, even it’s still just a rumor. A new leak shared to Weibo suggests that LG could bring some of the same awesome camera technology featured in the G4 to its upcoming Nexus.

The leak offers a list of alleged specs for the new LG Nexus. The device will apparently pack a Snapdragon 808 processor, a 5.2-inch 2K display, 3GB of RAM and a 13-megapixel Sony camera sensor. That’s a step down from the 16-megapixel shooter found on the G4, though the new phone will apparently keep LG’s new optical image stabilization (OIS) technology.

We’re also expecting a 5-megapixel camera up front, along with a fingerprint reader in back and Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box. If you’re more of a phablet fan, there’s also Huawei’s rumored Nexus phone, which should pack a bigger display and even more power under the hood.

If history repeats itself, both devices will likely arrive in late October, though it’s always possible Google will launch its new Nexus phones a little early this year.
