LG’s Nexus 5 (2015) specs detailed


Two Nexus devices are expected to be released by the end of the year. Both LG and Huawei are apparently in charge of the hardware launching alongside Android 6.0 Marshmallow. It would be LG’s third time manufacturing a Nexus device and this one could arrive as soon as September 29. Today, alleged specifications regarding the LG-made Nexus phone, likely known (again) as the Nexus 5, were detailed.

Here are the specifications offered to Android Police:

  • 5.2-inch Full HD (1920×1080) display
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 808
  • 3GB of RAM
  • 12.3MP / 5MP cameras
  • 2700mAh battery
  • 16GB or 32GB of internal storage
  • USB Type-C port
  • White, black, or blue color options


The source did not provide Android Police with a release date or pricing; however, these specifications seem to indicate a range of $300-$500. Nexus devices typically launch in November and pricing has always been scattered. The original Nexus 5, for example, launched on Halloween night in 2013 with a $349 staring price while the Nexus 6 debuted in mid-October last year priced at $649 to start. Assuming Google does work with Huawei on another Nexus phone, it looks as if the company’s strategy is to have two separate devices to cover the high-end market with affordable and pricier options.

    The biggest competition I see for LG and Huawei may be their previous releases. We max out on the Nexus 5 for actual carrying phones, preferring Nexus 7s and 9s for tablets. (That is to say, games and computer-like activities are on larger screens, and the phones are used for talking and occasional car apps.) Need to instantly see your last 5,000 Jpegs? That’s what the Cloud is for, assuming you lack the savvy to have remote linkage to your home systems.

    We’re also looking at upgrading our Moto Xs, and aside from having a 21mp camera and quick battery recharge, find no compelling reason to buy new in late 2015.

    It should be pointed out that we have the luxury of owning several items, and thus choose what’s optimized for specific functions. If you’re trying to do everything on one single device … I suggest you look at Apple, find your “ideal”, then look at the closest Android competition.
