Massive leak tips Google’s LG Nexus 5, Huawei Nexus 6 specs

Two new Nexus devices have been rumoured to be in the works for a while, but the specs have remained a mystery, until now.

Specs for both the LG Nexus 5 and the Huawei Nexus 6 – neither of which have been officially confirmed – have been leaked.

A report by GizmoChina purports to have obtained information about the much-rumoured handsets ahead of their expected autumn launch.

The Nexus 5 leak is fairly expansive, so here’s the full run-down of claimed specs:

  • 5.2-inch display
  • Full HD 1080p screen resolution
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 620 (MSM8976) processor
  • 4GB LPDDR3-1866 RAM
  • Up to 64GB eMMC 5.1 built-in storage
  • 3,180mAh battery (non-removable)
  • 13-megapixel camera (IMX278 RGBW sensor, 6-element f/1.8 aperture lens, OIS, laser autofocus, dual-tone LED flash)
  • 4-megapixel camera (OV4682 RGB-IR sensor, Iris Detection)
  • USB-C connector (with QuickCharge 2.0)
  • MediaTek MT3188 wireless charging receiver
  • 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, NFC

It’s also tipped that the device will feature an aluminium frame with chamfered edges and matte plastic rear casing.

Pricing is revealed to be around $300 to $400 – that’s around £190 to £255 under a direct currency conversion.
