Service manual for LG and Google's next smartphone, Nexus 5, leaked

Even though it hasn't been officially announced yet by Google, most Internet rumors claim that the Nexus 5 smartphone will be launched sometime before the end of October. This week, the full service manual for the Android smartphone, which is being made for Google by LG, leaked on the Internet over the weekend, revealing pretty much everything about the device.

Android Police originally posted the manual, but was later told to remove it from the site by LG. While the document is supposed to be a draft and thus could still have errors, it does seem to confirm much of what's been previous rumors about the Nexus 5. Here are just some of the spec mentioned in the manual.

  • 4.95" IPS TFT 1080p display
  • 16GB and 32GB internal storage
  • 2GB RAM
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 at 2.3GHz
  • 8 megapixel rear camera; 1.3 megapixel front camera
  • 2300mAh battery
  • MicroSIM slot
  • Notification light
  • Wireless charging
  • NFC

One interesting thing in the manual specs is the sensors listed inside the Nexus 5. While there are the usual ones that are on other smartphones like gyroscope accelerometer, compass, proximity and light, there's also one that reportedly detects pressure. Currently rumors claim that Google will officially announce the Nexus 5 on October 14th.
