New LG Nexus 5 said to rock Snapdragon 808, 5.2-inch 1080p display

Reports on Monday have served up potential specifications for the rumoured LG Nexus 5 refresh.

According to Android Police sources, the follow up to 2013’s raw Android handset will pack a 5.2-inch display with a 1080p resolution.

Doing the heavy lifting will be the six-core Snapdragon 808 processor, featuring two A57 chips, rather than the four sitting within the octa-core 810.

The report says that SoC will be paired with 3GB of RAM and an Adreno 418, which will offer “respectable” performance.

Elsewhere the device is said to include a USB Type-C charging and connectivity port and a relatively modest 2700Ah battery.

In terms of cameras, the report says there’ll be a 12.3 megapixel rear-facing sensor and a 5-megapixel sensor on the front of the device.

It’ll be available in 16GB and 32GB models according to the report and all of this will add up to a sub-flagship price point, for what looks like a sub-flagship handset.
