It seems Nexus 5 leaks come from all kinds of places these days.  This latest, as seen above, was posted from a member of MacRumors forum named weespeed and claims to show Google's newest Nexus phone.  The mysterious user wouldn't give many details but did say that he was above to handle the phone, that it was smaller than the LG G2 and that it felt a lot like the Nexus 7.  He said the display was 'ok', not as good as the Galaxy Note III, but that it did have very small bezels.  Now the phone does look a lot like the previous leaks especially the horizonal 'NEXUS' branding and the large camera surround.  The poster didn't say why he was able to gain access to the Nexus 5 or if he used it much and appeared to be concerned with being discovered by Google. 

Now this leak follows another this past weekend which was a log file about 10mb in size that appears to show a number of specs about the device including some new info about the camera which apparently will be 8MP instead of the 13 megapixel shooter found on the LG G2 which the phone was supposedly based on.  We still don't know if it has Optical Image Stabilization, although that large lens surround makes us think it's a possibility.  Other specs that appear confirmed by the log file include:

Quote
Display:  5-inch Full HD display, 442 ppi (potentially 4.97-inch)
Processor:  2.3GHz Qualcomm Snadragon 800
RAM:  2GB
Internal Storage:  16GB (could be another model too, this is what was in the log)
Camera (rear):  8MP (no idea if it has OIS like the LG G2 camera)
Camera (front):  1.2MP
Sensors:  accelerometer, magnetometer, gyroscope, proximity, light, barometer, orientation
Battery:  2300mAh (via FCC) and wireless charging
Other:  LTE, NFC
Model:  LG-D820


We're still hoping for an October 14th announcement for both the Nexus 5 and Android KitKat which means we would expect invites and a 'save the date' type announcement to go out early next week at the latest.  Stay tuned...

I hope they've got those camera specs wrong. I really do.

Agreed.  I'd like to see at least a 10MP camera rather than the 8 but to me the most important thing will be if it has OIS or not.  I'm not a megapixel whore and I understand that after you get to the 8-12mp range the number of pixels count less for image quality than the size of the sensor being used, but OIS is truly useful.

Hold fire on the reduced expectation of megapixels being a 'dealbreaker'.

Can't say i know much about the technology but we have a rumour of MEMS tech...

"The logs also indicated that Nexus 5 will feature an 8-megapixel camera – many would definitely say that this can’t be true as 12- to 16-megapixel cameras are the norm today. But, that isn’t the case as further analysis of the logs indicated that there is a new kind of camera in the Nexus 5 called MEMS.

If we dip our nose in MEMS, it is short form of MicroElectroMechanical technology – something that is completely different from today’s voice coil motors (VCMs) used in smartphone cameras. MEMS is basically the same technology that gave us tiny yet precise power efficient smartphone and tablet components like gyros, microphones and barometers.

We won’t go into the technical aspects of MEMS, but the important thing to note is that a MEMS camera is said to be around 7 times faster than current cameras when it comes to focusing and can capture multiple images much faster than other standard smartphone cameras.

MEMS is said to lock focus on an object – be it day light or night time – within fraction of a second and allows for multiple shots in quick succession. The camera also features shoot now and focus later option just like a Lytro camera. Google is probably going to bring the technology to mainstream with its Nexus 5.

Some of the details we already known about the camera on Nexus 5 are 8-megapixel unit; f/2.4 aperture; and 1/3.2” sensor."

Nice find NexusOneModder.  I guess we'll just have to wait and see...

Here's another article on the MEMS camera and a video demo of the technology.  Looks very cool in fact!  :D

Take a look what I found!! an app that tells you and advises you when the Nexus 5 will be available. You get notifications of news if you want as they come. The first time Nexus 4 was launched I missed it. No this time!!!.
