LG-Escape-2-8

We have seen plenty of leaked images of the highly anticipated LG Nexus, but hardware specifications have been much harder to come by. Until today that is, as a leaked hardware table from a prototype handset has shown up to give us a look at what might be powering the smartphone.

A lot of the table is a match for some of the very earliest rumors about the handset. There’s apparently a hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 SoC and 3GB of LPDDR3 memory forming the basis of the handset. The phone is also expected to feature a 13 megapixel IMX278 image sensor, along with optical image stabilization and LG’s laser auto-focus technology. The fingerprint scanner that was previous spotted in pictures is also listed.

The LG Nexus is expected to be the smaller of the two upcoming Nexus handsets, the other being designed by Huawei. This table suggests a reasonably sized 5.2-inch display with a 2K resolution. Overall, the hardware looks to be quite similar to LG’s existing G4 flagship, but with a few subtle changes.

If true, these specifications are quite comparable to existing flagships on the market, although this means that these new Nexus phones may have a high price tag to match. Even so, the inclusion of a better camera and extras like the fingerprint scanner might make the new 5.2-inch Nexus a suitable upgrade for previous generation Nexus 5 owners. Are you tempted by the LG Nexus 5?
