Details about the newest Google’s Nexus 5 made by LG surfaced on the web on Monday after an alleged service manual for the smartphone was leaked. A 281-page document titled LG D821 contains detailed diagrams, images, and information about the Nexus smartphone appeared on Scribd and was scooped by Android Police.
As per the leaked manuscript, the new LG handset will feature a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, and a 4.95-inch IPS display with 1080p resolution. It will also sport an 8-megapixel main camera, LTE radio, 2,300mAh battery, NFC, and wireless charging. The purported Nexus 5 will be sold in 16GB and 32GB variants.
Looking at the numbers, specs, and drawings, everything about the Nexus 5 seems familiar for those who follow the brand. Just as the Nexus 4 was built using the DNA of the LG Optimus G, the Nexus 5 will most likely be in the likeness of LG’s high-end G2 smartphone.
With all the leaks coming out of late, most experts will take caution in interpreting any information. One may doubt the accuracy of information but the amount of details on the pages of the manual is one good basis that it’s not fake. The service manual on a final draft stage for the new LG phone can’t be denied any more when the manufacturer requested Android Police to remove the images and document published on the website.
The new LG Nexus smartphone will also have a Bluetooth 4.0, notification light, Slimport compatibility, and a slot for microSIM. The manual also mentions of an eMMC slot that can even add more storage options to the device. There are also speculations that the Nexus 5 will be the first handset to roll out with the Android 4.4 KitKat. This seems logical as the Nexus 4 debuted with the Jelly Bean.
The draft of the document comes out as gadget lovers speculate a launch of the new Nexus handset on October 14 just as how the roll out of the Nexus 4 was timed in 2012. The launch of the Nexus 4 last year in the United States was delayed when the East Coast was hit by Hurricane Sandy.
