More leaked photos of the next Nexus 5 emerge
We had just reported on the leaked render images and video late last week which claim to represent the 2015 LG Nexus 5. Now, an actual snapshot of the alleged smartphone is making the rounds and shows just the backside of the new Nexus. The two leaks, though likely unrelated, show very similar features of the Nexus phone and are thus a bit more believable as far as unconfirmed images go.
The new post recognizes the protruding rear camera, dual LED Flash, and round fingerprint sensor that are present on last week's render. The phone carries the usual Nexus brand name on the back as well as the "Not for Sale" sticker, which could indicate a prototype. Another feature is the smooth and uninspiring plastic chassis, so users holding out for an aluminum unibody Nexus 5 may soon be disappointed.
The photo adds fuel to existing rumors of a 5.2-inch display with laser autofocus. Additional speculation include a 16 MP or 21 MP rear camera with OIS (optical image stabilizer).
