LG Nexus 5 (2015) Tipped to Pack USB Type-C Port, Launch in Late September
The rumoured LG-made Nexus 5 (2015) smartphone once again making news on the Internet. A new leak has tipped the specifications of the upcoming smartphone alongside suggesting a late September launch.
The specifications have been leaked by Android Police and corroborate previously rumoured set of innards. The report however points out that LG-made Nexus will be ‘sub-flagship level’ smartphone.
In line with last week’s leak, the LG Nexus 5 (2015) is said to feature a 5.2-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) display; Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor; 3GB of RAM; Adreno 418 GPU, and a 5-megapixel front camera.
The new leak adds that the LG-made Nexus smartphone will feature a USB Type-C port; though as of now there’s no word on what version it will be. Huawei’s Nexus smartphone has also been previously rumoured to feature the new USB Type-C port. The inclusion of USB Type-C support does not come as a surprise however, with the new Nexus smartphones meant to be the platform lead devices for Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and Google officially announcing support for the USB specification at I/O 2015.
The LG-made Nexus smartphone is said to pack a 2700mAh battery, which is a slight upgrade from 2300mAh battery on the Nexus 5. Unlike the previous leak that tipped a 13-megapixel rear camera, the new leak claims that the handset will sport a 12.3-megapixel sensor. Additionally, the handset is said to come in 16GB and 32GB storage versions only with no storage expansion option. It is said to arrive in three colours: Black, Blue, and White.
Again in line with a previous report, the new leak again suggests a late September launch time-frame for the LG-made Nexus smartphone.
While Google, Huawei, or LG are yet to reveal any plans for Nexus devices this year, several leaks have pointed that Huawei and LG have been reportedly working on Nexus devices set to launch later this year alongside Android 6.0 Marshmallow final build. The Chinese firm is expected to produce the larger display smartphone, and LG the smaller one.
