Another day and another rumour for Google Nexus 5. Folks at PhoneArena
have been tipped by an anonymous tipster that Google Nexus 5 will not have a full-HD screen. Instead the smartphone will pack in 4.5-inch 720p IPS screen.
It is noteworthy, that all the recently launched flagships smartphones, be it the Samsung Galaxy S4, HTC One or Sony Xperia Z, sport a 1080p display. So it does come as surprise that Google for its next iteration of Nexus smartphone wants to stick with a 720p display.
PhoneArena further claims that LG will be making this iteration of Google Nexus and 88 percent of front of the phone will be taken up the display. Furthermore, Google Nexus 5 will have a mammoth 2,800mAh battery.
As suggested in the previous rumours, the tipster claims that the Google Nexus 5 will come with Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor that can clock speeds up to 1.5GHz. The most interesting revelation in this leak is that the smartphone will come with 9-megapixel CCD camera. This is interesting because most smartphone cameras come with CMOS sensor. CMOS censors cost almost the same as CCD sensor, but the former is faster in terms of processing images and hence is deployed in most smartphones.
Even in the past, there have been new reports regarding Google planning to do some innovation in the camera of Google Nexus 5. This news report suggested that Google Nexus 5 will come with a "triple camera sensor thing" along with a Nikon branding.
As per the past rumours, Google Nexus 5 will allegedly come with 2GB of RAM and offer two internal storage options - 8GB and 16GB. This smartphone will run on Android 5.0 or Android Key Lime Pie, which is expected to be released by Google at their I/O conference.
Google's current iteration of Nexus smartphone is made by the Korean smartphone maker LG.
