Nexus 5 Rumors Focus on Camera Tech


Between the HTC One’s UltraPixel camera and Samsung Galaxy S 4’s 13-megapixel shooter, it’s clear that manufacturers are increasingly looking to high-performance cameras to make their models stand out. To that end, a couple new sets of supposed specs for Google’s next Nexus phone have arrived, and while their info doesn’t quite line up, both paint their own pictures of an Android with a very high-end camera.

The first one to arrive describes the Nexus 5 as a cutting-edge LG model (above). It would have a 5.2-inch full HD OLED, run a Snapdragon 800 at 2.3GHz, have One-like dual front speakers, 3GB of RAM, and sport a 3300mAh battery. Its main camera would supposedly be a 16-megapixel sensor from OmniVision, capable of recording 4K HD video and equipped with optical stabilization.

Then there’s a separate rumor that describes the Nexus 5 as having a five-inch full HD display, running a Snapdragon 600, and only having 2GB of RAM and a 3140mAh battery. This time, the possible manufacturer is left open. The phone’s camera would supposedly feature some kind of “triple” sensor (which sounds like UltraPixel tech) and be Nikon-branded.

Those are two somewhat different takes on the Nexus 5 (if that’s what it’s even called), and while some of these details are hard to believe, the general consensus about a next-gen camera is hard to ignore. For now, we’ll wait for more details to see if either one of these theories pans out.
