LG Nexus 5 (2015) ‘Final Form’ Image Leaks, Tips Fingerprint Scanner

The much-rumoured LG-made Nexus smartphone (reportedly called the Nexus 5X) has surfaced again in a new leaked image showing the handset in a White colour variant.

The new image comes from AndroidPIT, which claims to have received it from trusted sources, is in line with previous leaked Nexus 5 (2015) aka Nexus 5X images. The website however asserts that the image shows the new LG-made Nexus in its “final form.”

In line with earlier leaks, the image shows the fingerprint scanner on the back panel of the LG-made Nexus, sporting a circular design. Unlike some previous leaks, the new leaked image shows the rear camera protruding slightly, and not placed on a raised bar. The primary camera is accompanied by dual-LED flash. The new image again shows the Nexus branding on the rear panel of the handset.

A recent report suggested that Google would launch the next Nexus smartphones – manufactured by Huawei and LG – on September 29 running the release build of Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

Last week, a report even claimed the new Nexus smartphones will go on sale starting September 29 and will be available via the Google Store.

The new Nexus 5 (2015) aka Nexus 5X is said to be priced at $399 (approximately Rs. 26,500) for the 16GB model, while the 32GB will cost $449 (approximately Rs. 32,999).

Based on preliminary leaks, 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. A USB Type-C port, 2700mAh battery, 12.3-megapixel rear camera are being also tipped for the device.

As for the Huawei-made Nexus smartphone, it is tipped to sport 64GB of inbuilt storage and the MSM8994 SoC aka the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810. It may also feature a USB Type-C port. A 5.7-inch display, front-facing speakers and a fingerprint scanner are also tipped.

We will have to wait till September 29 to see whether Google unravels the new Nexus devices.
