LG Nexus 2015 rumors, specs, release date: new photo appears to be selfie shot from LG Nexus 2015


The tech world may have just seen the very first photo taken by the long rumored LG Nexus 5 2015.

As reported by Phone Arena, an employee who works for Google’s Quality Assurance Department posted a selfie on his Google+ profile, with the Exif data saying that the photo posted was taken via a certain phone called “LG Bullhead”. To people who have been following the flow of the rumor mill closely, the term “Bullhead” will immediately be familiar as it is the codename of the long rumored new Nexus phone to be released by LG. Information about the photo extracted from the post revealed that the “LG Bullhead” allegedly used to take the selfie has a 5 metafiles front camera with 1944 2592 resolution, and with an aperture of f/2.0, enabling users to take quality images even in low lighting conditions. Coordinates data from the photo upload showed that the photo was taken at Googleplex in Mountain View, California.

Previous rumors showed probably the first live images of the new LG Nexus 5 2015, confirming a number of long-rumored hardware specifications of the smartphone. The leaked photo was first seen on the Nexus Indonesia Google+ community. The photo showed the back of what is said to be the new LG Nexus 2015 phone. The leaked photo showed a phone with a rounded edges, and with a sticker (possibly a control number) with a red logo that looked to be that of LG. The phone shown also had a note “NOT FOR SALE”, which could possibly mean that the handset is a prototype unit only.

It sports a rear-facing camera that is slightly protruding, dual LED flash on its left, and a round part below the camera that is said to be the long rumored fingerprint scanner of the new Nexus 5 phone.

Should these really prove to be a fingerprint scanner, the new LG Nexus 5 2015 will be marked as the first Nexus phone to feature such technology.
