While rumors are rife that the highly anticipated next-generation Nexus smartphone, dubbed the Nexus 5, will be released later this month, a new report claimed last week that a draft of the official LG service manual for the new handset was leaked online, revealing a number of details about the device’s specs and features.

The purported LG Nexus 5 service manual is 281 pages long and includes a host of technical information, flow charts, diagrams and photos of the silicon chip, according to Android Police, which first reported the leak, citing an anonymous tipster. A diagram of the Nexus 5, included in the manual, resembles a smaller LG G2, but without the buttons on the back. The device’s rear is also pictured, which matches some earlier leaked images

The service manual, which shows the Nexus 5 model number as “LG-D821,” reveals most of the handset’s specs and features, which both confirm and expand upon recent rumors about the device, according to Android Police.
