LG Nexus 5 Full Specs and Images Leak via Service Manual

Good news for those who are anxiously waiting for the reveal of the next Nexus smartphone, as a purported service manual has just leaked online.

The folks over at AndroidPolice managed to get their hands on what appears to be an internal service manual for the LG-D821, courtesy to an anonymous tipster. The said manual contains an image of the upcoming Nexus 5, which we already know will be manufactured by South Korean company LG. Since LG requested AndroidPolice to take down the manual and the images, we can safely assume that these are legit. With less than a month until Google is expected to announce the Nexus 5, it's hard to believe LG will be able to change anything that's been listed in this manual. Another thing that's not mentioned in the leaked manual is the version of Android Nexus 5 will be shipped with, but I think it's safe to say it will be the first smartphone powered by Android 4.4 KitKat operating system.

That being said, let's see how powerful the Nexus 5 will look like in comparison with its rivals. First of all, according to this manual, the high-end smartphone will boast a 4.95-inch IPS capacitive touchscreen display that supports full HD (1080p) resolution. In addition, it will pack a powerful 2.3 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM and 16GB or 32GB of internal memory. The bad news is the manual has no mentions of Nexus 5 featuring microSD card slot for memory expansion and from the previous experiences we know that for some reasons Google prefers its own branded devices without this feature.

On the back, the Nexus 5 will sport an 8-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization (OIS), while in the front there's a secondary 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera for video calls. The phone will feature wireless charging, NFC (Near Field Communication), Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and both CDMA and LTE support. Last but not least, Nexus 5 will accept microSIM cards and will be packed with the following sensors and ports: accelerometer, gyroscope, compass, proximity/ambient Light, pressure, HDMI out via Slimport and Notification light.
