New images show LG Nexus 5 2015 with fingerprint scanner
Freshly leaked render images and videos on YouTube claim to be the upcoming LG Nexus 5. The material was published by @uSwitchUK and @OnLeaks based on design data from accessory manufacturers.
The renders show a 5.2-inch display and 146.9 x 72.9 x 9.8 mm dimensions. What's striking is the large rear camera that protrudes quite noticeably of up to 1.8 mm. Adjacent to the seemingly large lens is a what appears to be a fingerprint scanner.
Exactly what the chassis will be made of remains a mystery as the leak does not go into details. The images do show a USB Type-C port for cables to be plugged in at any orientation. Whether this is USB 3.0 or 3.1, however, is unknown. Of course, rumors and renders should always be taken with a grain of salt.
Google has been mum on what the next Nexus will be. The last major Nexus device was last year's Nexus 6 released in November 2014. It was officially unveiled just a month prior, so there is a chance that Google will show something new later this year for a launch before the Christmas holiday.
