We’ve been hearing whispers about the reboot of the LG Nexus 5 for some time, and it looks like we may be getting a peak at what will be under the hood of Google’s latest pure Android device. According to a leak, the 2015 Nexus 5 will bring a 64-bit hexa-core Snapdragon 808 to the table, along with 3GB of RAM and an Adreno 418 GPU. Also on board will be a 5.2-inch 2K display, a 13MP camera powered by a Sony sensor and the same OIS we saw on the LG G4. Of course, the device will be LTE-capable as well.
The use of a Snapdragon 808, which is not an octa-core processor like we’ve seen in the recent flagship devices, and the 13MP camera falls into the more mid-range category as well. This could mean that Google will attempt to market it as a more affordable device. The original Nexus 5 launched at just $350 off-contract, so we may see its successor launch at around the same price. For pure Android enthusiasts and developers, this new Nexus may be the best alternative to the Nexus 6, which many users griped was too large.
