Nexus 5 spec leak confirms it's similar to LG's G2

Google logoWhat appears to be an internal repair manual for Google’s upcoming Nexus 5 flagship phone reveals pretty much everything there is to know about the device, filling in what blanks remain after an LG FCC filing went public last month. The draft document was leaked to Android Police, and between the schematics and disassembly instructions it contains a comprehensive list of the device’s specs. The 4.95-inch 1080p IPS LCD display is confirmed, as is LTE compatibility and the 2,300mAh battery. The document also reveals that the phone will have a 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and 2GB of RAM, along with an 8-megapixel rear camera, Qi wireless charging, and NFC.

Keeping with tradition, the new phone is more or less spec-for-spec identical with LG’s G2, save for the lower-resolution 8-megapixel camera on the Nexus 5, a slightly smaller screen, and a smaller battery. We thought that LG's flagship performed incredibly well but would have been better without the excessive software flourishes, awkward button placement, and lackluster case materials, so the idea of a redesigned G2 running stock Android is incredibly intriguing. So far, there's no official word on a Nexus 5 announcement, but with the Nexus 4 getting a late-October release last year, we wouldn't be surprised to see Google stick to the same timeframe this time around.
