The folks over at Google haven’t left much to the imagination, with the new Nexus 5. After FCC filings, and plenty of online leaks, bar-leaked images, we nearly know everything about the phone ahead of the October 30th launch date. In a recent development, Androidpolice got its hands on what appears to be a 281 page service manual for the DE21. The manual contains detailed line drawings and specifications, which line up neatly with what we know about the phone so far, and hence we have what appears to be the Nexus 5 service manual.
A quick refresh of the known specs. The Nexus 5 is rumored to come with a 4.95-inch 1920×1080 px IPS display and a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, clocked in at 2.3 GHz. It will pack 2 GB of RAM, and 16/32 GB of internal storage. Given how Google has skirted microSD slots in the past, the Nexus 5 is unlikely to have one. The phone will also come with inductive wireless charging and NFC and several LTE bands.
Coming to the new bits, the Nexus 5 will pack a 8 MP rear-shooter with OIS ( optical image stabilization ), and a 1.3 MP front-camera. It will come with a 2,300 mAh battery, and will champion the much awaited Android KitKat 4.4. It is rumored to pack a pressure sensor in addition to the usual Accelerometer, Gyroscope, and Proximity/Light sensors. It also has a HDMI-out via Slimport, and microSIM support.
There are some questionable details in the document, like the Bluetooth 3.0 specification ( we expect 4.0 on this top-of-the-line device ), and hence this information should not be trusted blindly. For the more inquisitive, we’ve embedded the document here. Nearly every possible nature of leak has occurred with the Nexus 5, and the October launch date is eagerly awaited. We will bring you more details as events unfold.
