At a time when the LG Nexus 5 (2015) is rumored to be launched at the end of September, the specifications of the handset have been rumored once again, revealing details on its internal storage, battery capacity and color variants.
The LG Nexus 5 (2015) is expected to come with a 5.2-inch full HD display with support for 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution, Android Police reported. The new report contradicts previous speculations that stated the handset will be supporting Quad HD resolution.
The usage of full HD display instead of Quad HD screen will help in consuming less power. The device is likely to be powered by Snapdragon 808 chipset that contains a hexa-core processor and Adreno 418 graphics. The SoC will be coupled with 3 GB of RAM, and will be available in two storage versions of 16 GB and 32 GB.
The handset is also likely to feature a USB Type-C connector onboard. However, there is no confirmation that the rear panel of the handset will be flanked with a fingerprint sensor. The device could sport a 12.3-megapixel rear shooter and a selfie camera of 5-megapixel. It will be packed with a battery of 2,700 mAh capacity.
GSM Arena reported that the LG Nexus 5 (2015) will be priced lower than the Nexus 6 phablet from 2014 that was built by Motorola. It will be available in three color options such as black, white and blue. Even though the rumor mill is calling the LG’s Nexus smartphone as LG Nexus 5 (2015), there is no official confirmation on its moniker.
The Huawei Nexus 6 (2015) is the other Google Nexus 2015 smartphone that is slated to get revealed alongside the LG variant on Sept. 29. Both the handsets will come preloaded with Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Since it features high-end specs like Quad HD screen and Snapdragon 810 chipset, the phone is expected to carry an expensive price tag.
