LG’s rumored Nexus phone has been leaking a lot recently, but the device’s exact hardware is a still a mystery. Now a new report from Android Police and its “reliable source” suggests LG and Google could put an emphasis on battery life and price over high-end hardware.
The stock Android smartphone will allegedly offer a 5.2-inch 1080p display, a Snapdragon 808 processor and a respectable 2700mAh battery. That should mean plenty of battery life, even if it’s a little slower and a little less sharp as a result. Other alleged specs include a 12.3-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter, a USB-C port, 3GB of RAM and 16GB/32GB of storage. Android Police doesn’t mention a fingerprint reader, but recent leaked photos suggest the device could pack a biometric scanner in back.
As for the design, we’re expecting LG’s Nexus to be mostly plastic, though perhaps with a ring of metal around the edges. This new report notes that it will be available in black, white or blue.
The new Nexus 5 is apparently set to launch near the end of September, which would be over a month earlier than last year’s Nexus 6. The price is still a mystery too, though most reports put it somewhere between $300 and $500. Hopefully we won’t have to wait much longer to find out the official details.
