With the Nexus 5 release date reportedly scheduled for October 14, new details about the next-gen smartphone co-developed by Google and LG are leaking online on a daily basis. After we got to see some name-related rumors a couple of days ago, it was only yesterday when we were able to get a peek inside a 282 pages-long Nexus 5 service manual.
The latest leaked information regarding the yet-unannounced Nexus smartphone comes from the folks at Gadget Helpline, who claim to have gotten their hands on a couple of screenshots of an early Android 4.4 KitKat build.
The details contained by the Android 4.4 leaked photos doesn’t add anything new to the Nexus 5 rumor train, but at least they come to confirm some of the technical specifications we already knew about. Moreover, the new Android 4.4 KitKat screenshots also reveal the white status icons in the status bar we’ve met in previous leaks related to Google’s next Android iteration.
As you can see in the gallery below and as you probably knew from previous rumors, the Nexus 5 will be powered by a Qualcomm MSM 8974 chipset (Snapdragon 800) with quad-core 2.2 GHz CPU (previous reports talked about 2.3 GHz clock speed) and Adreno 330 GPU.
The amount of RAM also received further confirmation (2 GB of RAM), while the internal storage is expected to be of either 16 or 32 GB (base version has 12.55GB of user-available storage). The display, which will most likely be advertised as a full HD 5-inch screen, is in fact a 4.96-inch unit with a resolution of 1,776 x 1,080 (excluding the navigation bar). In case you didn’t know it already, the screen will be manufactured using LG Display’s IPS LCD technology.
The camera listed in the leaked Android 4.4 KitKat screenshots has an 8 MP sensor with continuous autofocus, but the rumors also added optical image stabilization compatibilities.
I know there’s nothing surprising among the new leaked Nexus 5 specifications, but at least our expectations for the next-gen Nexus smartphone are confirmed by multiple sources. As usual, we are advising you to take the information with a pinch of salt, until we get the official confirmations from Google.
