Nexus 5 service manual leaks

No big surprises really

As the Nexus 5 launch get draws near, we are starting to get more and more actual information – which sort of confirms almost all the rumours that have been floating around for months.

Android Police unearthed the official Nexus 5 service manual and it finally gives us the full picture. Well, almost. The phone is powered by a 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with 2GB of RAM. Apparently it will be available in 16GB and 32GB flavours, which means 8GB is finally dead.

LTE radio is on board, along with an OIS 8-megapixel camera, NFC and wireless charging. The battery comes in at 2,300mAh. Now for the screen. It’s a 4.95-inch 1080p panel so it really deserves the “5” moniker.

If you’re not a fan of huge phones, don’t be put off by the 5-inch screen. At 133.9x68.7x9.1mm, the new Nexus is roughly the size of last year’s Nexus 4, despite the marginally bigger screen.

The price remains the big question right now. Last week several punters speculated that it might end up a bit more expensive than the Nexus 4, but at the same time cheaper than Apple’s iPhone 5C. 

Android Police was forced to remove the actual manual, but you can still check it out over at Tech Crunch
