Nexus 5’s 2,300 mAh Battery Caught on Camera

Nexus 5 battery 01

A couple of weeks ago there was a report saying that the Nexus 5 might come with two battery options. According to the said report the 16 GB Nexus 5 will pack a 2,300 mAh battery, while the 32 GB model will come with a 3,000 mAh unit.

Anyway the rumors about the 3,000 mAh Nexus 5 were dismissed a week ago by the journalists of an Italian publication who had an word with a source close to the matter. Well, we still can’t confirm whether the rumor is true, but at least we can show you a few photos of an alleged Nexus 5 battery.

If there were any of you hoping for a 3,000 mAh battery for the Nexus 5, I am sorry to tell you that you will be looking at a 2,300 mAh cell. Of course, this doesn’t mean that there isn’t a 3,000 mAh Nexus 5 out there, though it’s highly unlikely. There’s nothing special about the battery caught in the wild and it doesn’t reveal any information about the highly-anticipated smartphone. It only comes to confirm what we already knew: that the Nexus 5 will have a non-removable battery.

In case you missed the rumor train, hear that the Nexus 5 is expected to debut later this month along with Android 4.4 KitKat, at a price of $349 for the 16 GB variant. The hardware platform of the smartphone co-developed by Google and LG will be one of the most powerful on the market, integrating a quad-core 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 16 or 32 GB of storage, and a 5-inch LCD screen with full HD resolution.

Sources in the industry have revealed that the handset will come with an 8 MP camera with optical image stabilization and that the smartphone will ditch the glass back over a soft touch material, similar with the one used for the Nexus 7 2013.

What are your expectations for the Nexus 5? Please let us know in the comments section. Oh, and don’t forget to check out the gallery containing the images of the alleged Nexus 5 battery.

    It looks like it could be replaceable?? :O
    It certainly isn’t stacked inside the phone…

    Anyway, we are all eager to get this thing and honestly anything else that is interesting and gets unveiled. It’s a bit sheep-ing but they’re new gadgets and the Nexus crowd has had to wait a while now.
