Do you believe this is the Nexus 5?

Loie Favre

Have other manufacturing companies now adopted the same marketing tactic, which Samsung is said to have enforced for its new Galaxy S4 flagship? Rumors and leaks were coming out like hot cakes, creating a contagious hype all around the world. Is LG following suit? An anonymous and most certainly dubious source has leaked an image of the possible Nexus 5. Could this be it or is it just a marketing stunt, or even more likely, someone's far-fetched dream?

An image have surfaced, showing us a device that could very well be the Nexus 5. The source is said to be someone from Google – whether we believe it or not is another story. But here is what they are saying.

Firstly, this said-Nexus 5 device would appear in October 2013 and ''they are currently evaluating several prototypes from different manufactures''. It is also said, that one of the companies with their hand in the development is LG, who is working on the project under the top-secret code name ''Megalodon''. Are they pulling our leg?

Faster, better, stronger

The new device would have an even bigger screen that the new Galaxy S4 with 5.2'', boasting a OLED display with the same immaculate 1920x1080 resolution. What's more, it will be be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800, cadenced at 2.3 Ghz, running faster than the S4. And here we thought that Samsung's flagship was pushing the envelope! Everything here seems to be just one notch higher, like 3 GB RAM, a 16 MP rear camera, 3300 mAh battery, front positioned speakers and an integrated DVB-T and ATSC antenna. Supposedly, it will offer controls governed by gestures to navigate and zoom, for example.

The specifications belonging to this leaked image were way too interesting not to mention. Imagine if it were real. It's almost too good to be true, someone's wet dream for another super high-end smartphone. According to the androidandme, most of these parts are not even available yet or will be only much later on in the year.

Phonearena has recently been imformed by their source that the new Nexus will be bringing camera innovations to the table. This was confirmed by Google's Vic Gundotra, who stated ''we are committed to making Nexus phones insanely great cameras. Just wait and see!'' This was in reponse to a fan's comment about not wanting to carry around a heavy camera all the time.

What do you think of this? Do you think it is someone's idea of a joke or could this very well be the next Nexus? This was our prediction of how the new Nexus 5 would look.
