A recent reportedly leaked Android 4.4 KitKat build has apparently revealed more details about the upcoming Google Nexus 5 smartphone, although these rumored specs can’t yet be confirmed.
Just like last year, the new Nexus smartphone appears not to be a very well kept secret, at least assuming these new leaks are indeed accurate.
As previously speculated, the Nexus 5 smartphone appears to be similar to the LG G2, although it won’t have the same features as LG’s 2013 flagship smartphone. From the looks of it, we’re looking at a smaller display, smaller battery, and downgraded camera.
Italian online publication Android World have gone through the leaked Android 4.4 file log that was reportedly taken from a Nexus 5 unit, and came up with the following list of specs, based on the references in the code:
- 5-inch Full HD display (1920 x 1080 resolution) and 443 ppi
- 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor
- Adreno 330 GPU
- 2GB of RAM
- 16GB of storage
- 8-megapixel camera
- 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera
- wireless charging battery (2300mAh according to FCC documents, but not confirmed by the log file)
- NFC support
- LTE support
- accelerometer, magnetometer, gyroscope, proximity, light sensors, barometer
- Android 4.4 KitKat
In addition to what was discovered in this leaked Android 4.4 KitKat build, existing FCC and Bluetooth SIG documentation have already confirmed that the LG-D820 – currently the most plausible Nexus 5 candidate out there – will also feature Bluetooth 4.0 LE support, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/ac and support for a variety of LTE bands.
We’ll be back with more details about the Nexus 5 in the coming weeks, as the handset is rumored to be unveiled and launch at some point next month.
