The rumor train doesn’t stop, and, after the Galaxy Note 3 and the Xperia Z1 both became official, the focus is now squarely on the next Nexus smartphone. There has been a steady stream of leaks on the so-called Nexus 5, but this next leak promises to be the most detailed and hopefully most accurate yet.
An anonymous user posted a document on Scribd, which is purported to be the service manual for the LG-D821, the possible model number for the next Nexus phone. The manual mostly contains diagrams and technical information, but there are plenty of tidbits that confirm some of the rumored specifications for the next Nexus phone, as well as full body images.
Here are some of the highlights inside the 281 page document:
- 4.95″ Full HD IPS display
- Snapdragon 800 clocked at 2.3Ghz
- 2GB of RAM
- 16/32GB of storage
- 8MP rear facing camera with OIS
- 1.3MP front facing camera
- 133.9 x 68.7 x 9.1mm
- 139 grams
- 2300mAh battery
- Slimport compatibility
- UMTS/GSM/CDMA/LTE compatability
- Sensors: Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Compass, Proximity sensor, Ambient light sensor, Pressure
The document is still a draft and there are a few quirks inside of it, one of them being that the phone is said to be compatible with Bluetooth 3.0 and not Bluetooth 4.0 and Bluetooth LE. The dimensions listed are also the exact dimensions of the current Nexus 4, but despite these minor quirks this looks to be the real deal.
The full body images of the next Nexus phone reveal a similar design language with the current Nexus 7 (2013), with the Nexus logo going across the device horizontally, confirming that the phone will be made by LG.
The 281 page document appears to be genuine and, while it’s still only a draft, it gives a lot of details on the next Nexus smartphone. Now all Google has to do is announce the thing.
We’ll be pouring over the document in search of more tidbits of information to share with you, but for now you can read over the document yourself if you’ve got a few hours to spare.
