The leaks related to Google’s new Nexus phone and the new version of Android that it will run are coming in hard and fast. Now, Gadget Helpline, the site that leaked photos of an early Android 4.4 KitKat build, is back with screenshots purportedly revealing the specs of the Nexus 5.

The information contained in the screenshots isn’t new, but it seems to confirm some of the specs that we gleamed from the LG D821 service manual that hit the web over the weekend. The shots also exhibit the white status icons in the notifications drop bar, in line with other leaks.

The specs “confirmed” by the screenshots (collected with the Android System Info app) include:

  • Qualcomm MSM 8974, quad-core, 2.2GHz, Adreno 330 GPU
  • 2GB RAM
  • 16GB/32GB; base version has 12.55GB of free space out of the box
  • Full HD display (1,776 x 1,080 excluding the navigation bar). At 4.96-inch, pixel density would be 444 ppi. The display is supposedly IPS LCD, made by LG Display
  • 8MP camera (2,448 x 3,264) with continuous autofocus

There are really no surprises here, though it’s nice to have further confirmation, albeit not entirely reliable, on the specifications of the upcoming Nexus. Stay tuned for more and check out our Nexus 5 rumor roundup for more.
