The serial leaker, @OnLeaks and @uSwitchTech, have published some renders that are purported of LG’s next Nexus device. The renders are apparently based on the detailed schematics that are provided to accessory-makers to ensure third-party accessories will fit the handset when it is released.
From the picture, we can see that the new Nexus will have a fingerprint scanner on the rear (this is to make use of Android M’s native support for fingerprint scanner), a protruding camera bump as well as a 5.2-inch display.
There will be dual front-spacing speakers, as well as a USB Type-C charging port. The new Nexus 5 (2015 Edition) will allegedly have dimensions of 146.9 x 72.9 x 8mm with 9.8mm at it thickest point around the camera bump. The bump would means an OIS will be packed with the main camera.
At this time, it is still uncertain whether the handset will feature a full metal construction or just a metal frame and a polycarbonate rear panel. We are expecting the LG Nexus 5 (2015 Edition) will be announced around October and November period, when the Android M is also set to be launched.
We can’t wait for it.
