Nexus 5 detailed in leaked service manual

Leaked to Android Police, and removed at the request of Nexus manufacturer LG, the service manual reportedly details incremental updates to Google’s phone, including a 32GB model and a faster processor. LG hasn’t responded to a request for comment.

According to the manual, the new Nexus will look much the same as its predecessor. But it will feature a marginally bigger screen at 5in, with an improved 1080p resolution, up from the Nexus 4’s 4.7in, 1,280 x 768 display.

Although the specs detail a 32GB model, there’s no information on other storage options. The original Nexus 4 only came in 8GB or 16GB flavours. It will also boast 2GB of RAM and a 2,300mAh battery.

Other improvements include the addition of LTE on top of the usual 3G connectivity options, and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 chip.

The 8-megapixel rear-camera remains, as does the a 1.3-megapixel front-facing snapper. It isn’t clear whether Google has made any improvements to the camera technology.

And like the original, there’ll be NFC and Bluetooth compatibility, plus an array of sensors, a micro SIM slot and wireless charging.

The original Nexus 4 is no longer on sale through Google Play, suggesting the follow-up is due in the next few weeks.
