Details and an image of the Google Nexus 5 have allegedly been leaked online.
We’ve only just got over the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S4, and already there are rumours of another major Android phone swooping down… yet such is the mobile market these days.
So, what does source who contacted Android and Me believe the Nexus 5 will carry?
Apparently, a 5.2 inch full HD OLED display, which is bigger than the S4, and indeed is the same size as the original Galaxy Note, regarded as a “phablet” device (phone and tablet hybrid).
While the 5.2 inches of screen real-estate isn’t unbelievable, some of the other tech specs are pushing the boundaries of believability further: A 16-megapixel camera, for example.
A Snapdragon 800 CPU will apparently be on board running at 2.3GHz – a blazingly fast model which won’t even be available until much later this year – and there’ll be a new high in system RAM with 3GB. And there’s a 3300 mAh battery, allegedly… if Google can indeed cram all this into a flagship handset, it would be a more than impressive feat.
But it looks more like a juicy wish-list than a real potential Nexus 5 spec to us. The image doesn’t look particularly convincing, either – take a look here – and Android and Me doesn’t seem to put much faith in its unverified source who “claims” to work for Google, ahem.
So, yes, we’re going to call a fake here.
