Last week, for the first time, we saw an ivory white-hued Nexus (2015) in the high-resolution leaked images, and now Google's vanilla Android smartphone has been spotted in black.
Italian technology blog glistockisti has got hold of a slide of LG's internal presentation document titled Project N3, allegedly containing a photo of black Nexus 5 (2015) variant . The phone in the slide features laser auto-focus and dual-LED flash on the rear-side like we see in the company's flagship G series (G3 & G4).
The circular camera module is placed in the centre at the top and we see the finger-print sensor with metallic ring below the camera [View the Black Nexus 5 (2015), HERE]. The brand Nexus has been engraved vertically, similar to what we saw in leaked image last week.
The website also revealed that LG Nexus 5 (2015) will sport a 5.2-inch full HD (1920x1080p) display and house Snapdragon 808 SoC (System on Chip), Adreno 418 graphics engine backed by Android 6.0 Marshmallow, 2GB RAM, 12.3mp main camera, 5mp snapper on the front and a 2700 mAh battery.
Most of the aforementioned features are in line with previous reports. Furthermore, the Project N3 specified in the slide-show adds credibility to the above report as the new 2015 series flagship Android phone is LG's third Nexus device.
But that being said, there is one anomaly in the specification list revealed by the website. It says Nexus 5 (2015) will pack a 2GB RAM, which seems unlikely, since most of the marquee phones are using 3GB RAM and some handful of tier-1 brands have already taken notch up by incorporating 4GB. We believe 2GB RAM specified in the slide to be a typo error, or if the company has indeed used 2GB RAM, then fans will feel let down.
The company is yet to comment on the rumours. As per numerous reports, both LG and Huawei made Nexus devices are expected to be unveiled on 29 September.
Huawei Nexus 6 (2015) aka Angler is expected to boast QHD (2560x1440p) display, Snapdragon 810 processor, 3GB RAM, 21mp camera with Sony IMX230 sensor, USB Type C port and Android Marshmallow OS out-of-the-box. Stay tuned for more updates.
