Google Nexus 5X by LG (codename "Bullhead")

Motorola is hitting the $400 price point with the X Pure next month, using Snapdragon 808 and parts largely comparable to other 2015 flagships, so LG should be able to do the same especially with a smaller display.

Specs leak!

 

http://www.gizmochina.com/2015/08/03/google-nexus-5-huawei-nexus-specs-leaked/

 

The buzz is Snapdragon 620 using new ARM cores, cortex A72. Camera f/1.8, laser autofocus, OIS. USB type C.

 

I think this sounds pretty great.

If these are the specs (especially being a 5.2 inch display, nothing bigger), then I'm definitely getting this!

That sounds a bit too good to be true. Apparently the commenters on that article seem to agree. If it is true, I don't care at all about the price, it will be mine.

 

I've said several times over that I'm done with Samsung BUT I do love a good camera, which the Nexus' have lacked. If they actually use that LG camera module then I'm willing to trade off the sealed up battery (my other real bugaboo), for Nexus bloat-free-ness and fast updates (why I skipped the G4). I'm giving up on water resistance, it seems crazy that more people don't demand that from their devices, but whatever.

I don't see why this wouldn't be the specs for that price. Several other flagships (Motorola, Oneplus, etc) are doing similar specs for that price.

If there really are two nexus devices this year, one an LG n5 successor and one Hawaei phablet to succeed the n6 I'll be interested to see how they handle naming them. If the 2015 'n5' is even 80% of the supposed specs then my household will be getting three of them this year.

I thought the 820 was the best chip/processor?

Whats the 620? Isnt the 810 what was in the lg flex?

 

Actually benchmarks better than the 810 in most areas:

The 820 won't be available until 2016 (reportedly).  The 620 seems like a very capable chip.  I wouldn't worry about this at all.

It's a render reportedly built from factory specs, but I like it:

Some may complain that it's plain looking (again, its a render, materials could be who knows), but if the build quality is legit, this will be a great phone.

Can't wait! Still on my Nexus 5 original and looking for an upgrade. I'm excited to try the dual speaker set up and a good camera on a phone. The fingerprint sensor will also help me deal with a very over protective IT department as they disabled all the Google smart unlocks.

For those that have a Nexus 5 or 6 and may be monitoring this thread, if you DO NOT buy a phone directly from Sprint (on subsidy or lease), so direct buy through Google or whoever, can you apply the TEP to it?  I wasn't sure since TEP works through a 3rd party Asurion for repairs and replacements.  The website where it lists phones does show the Nexus 6 as supported, but Sprint does sell that phone.  Not that I would get it, but wondering.  Phones do have issues often and I know that has been a hassle in the past for Nexus 5 owners so I've heard.

Sprint will pretty much always allow TEP to be added whenever you activate a phone. At least on my plan. I can still add TEP to my HTC One M8.

I see. So the 2015 LG Nexus 5 is the 2012 HTC One X -- with a fingerprint scanner.

Fine by me. I always thought the original One X looked great.

I seem to be in the minority if you go by reddit comments, etc but I really like the look of this phone.

I find it ok. I prefer the rubberized feel and look of the nexus 5 original. Also, the camera module looks funky like it is a growth coming out of the phone.

The size is perfect!  It's just about the same size as my HTC One M8.  So I don't mind that at all.  My only gripe will likely be battery size.  I really hope LG throws in at least 3,000 MAh.  I usually throw a case on my phone now but I really do like the looks of it, too.

Is there a source for the 'leaked' photo? With AJ's post I'm highly skeptical that LG would make a phone so close to a competitors old phone, generations old especially.

The only resemblance is the camera. The texture on the back, speakers on the front, and LED/ fingerprint scanner are large differentiators.

When I look at it, I see literally the same phone with a different camera hole/led and an included finger print scanner. Which are small changes to make in a cad file to have it print the new 'N5'. I was just curious where you found it, because I haven't really been keeping tracks of the leaks/rumors except for this thread, and I wanted to start :P.

For reference, here's the HTC One X in it's entirety:

I always thought it looked awesome, but in 2015 the front does look a bit dated.

 

And here's the unofficial render of the 2015 Nexus 5:

I'll note that this leaked "real life" photo matches the "unofficial" render almost perfectly, so the front may very well end up looking like the render photo.

Typically always has leaks and it seems to be getting quite a bit of coverage now.

    • Edit: Disregard, what I previously posted here was a previously starred bug.  
    • This convert site is funny to me. T-Mobile reserved a pole at this same intersection for a small cell in Dec 2017, finally installed it in July 2020, only for the small cell to be planned for decommissioning a little less than 1 and a half years later thanks to a convert site. It looks like the roof was rebuilt/re-enforced for the new setup too. The roof line is a little higher at the front of the building with new bricks.
    • Or, more simply, have a physical SIM that I can just move from one device to another.  Problem [already] solved.  Carrier doesn't have to be involved at any point in the process. I'll be among many (I'm sure) who will be glad to know if you see it.  Here in the DC area, Dish hasn't really done much yet.  I think I've seen some Dish gear around Richmond, but nothing here. - Trip
    • I like VICE.  They actually report on news no one else is willing to report. A lot of the places they go no sane person would want to be there.  They put their life on the line in many cases to get a story. From stories about the avocado wars in Mexico, being in the front lines against ISIS and Ukraine, to being embedded with terrorist organizations.   FAA might have some conspiracy 5G nut on their team or something.  At work ever year we have some one come in and say "hey, can you turn off the WIFI in my room? I don't want its radiation".  It doesn't make sense and their reasoning is always uneducated conspiracy. I can see someone coming into my office and acting crazy over C band disregarding everything else.
    • I think on esims it depends on how they implement it. If you can freely activate them on one phone while having it loaded on many that would be great.   I will let you know when I see Boost Mobile native 5g live here. So far no sign of even the plmn being active which I figure will be my first indicator. I look at changing networks with the TNX Sim and seem to get a full list of all carriers and their alternate plmns.
