Nexus 5 2015 Leak Photo: First Look at Device with Fingerprint Scanner

Nexus 5 2015 manufactured by LG and its larger variant being taken cared of by Huawei are expected to be introduced at an event on September 29 in San Francisco, along with the rolling out of the final version of Android Marshmallow.

What isn’t known is that Android Pit has got its hands on what is believed to be a leaked image of the LG Nexus 5 2015. The image confirms the rumors that have been doing the rounds with regards to the fingerprint scanner being embedded on the back.

The image shows the rear side of the phone, wherein below the raised camera, a circular fingerprint scanner is embedded. The position of the scanner being on the back may not go down well with many, but that remains to be seen.

The leaked picture appears to be an official press image and also features a dual-LED flash and a laser auto-focus module.

Last year’s Motorola Nexus 6 would have arrived with a fingerprint scanner on the back as well, had the company found a good-enough supplier, as reported by Forbes. So, the idea of a Nexus phone possessing a rear fingerprint scanner has been around for much longer.

LG Nexus 5 2015 is rumored to feature 5.2.-inch Full HD screen, 3GB RAM, 2,700 mAh battery and come powered by Snapdragon 808 chip and may also possess a USB Type-C port.

Fans have also seen the leaked image of the Huawei Nexus 6 2015. The Chinese company will be manufacturing a Nexus device for the first time, while LG now happens to be a seasoned player.

The Huawei Nexus image indicating a protruding back had surfaced and fans got a good glimpse of what could be in the works as far as the phablet version of a Nexus phone is concerned.

Android Pit notes that the LG Nexus 5 should arrive at a price under US$400, but won’t be featuring a camera as good as the one on LG G4. However, with the announcements to be made this month, it won’t be long before fans will know what’s in the offering.
