Nexus 5 service manual leaked by an anonymous user in Scribd document sharing and reading site. This leaked manual gives us the confirmed specs about the next Google Nexus phone. Rumours and leaks have been floating around about the nexus 5 specs for a long time. Rest assured the biggest ever Nexus smartphone is coming soon in our hand.
We saw a prototype used by a Google employee on the Android 4.4 KitKat unveiling video. Then the FCC filling and a bit of spec with it. The next leak was when an early taster left his Nexus 5 in a bar.
Now AndroidPolice brought us this new and confined specs. They put an image of the next exciting upcoming Android phone. But unfortunately had to take it down due to LG’s request. That doesn’t mean that the leaked manual and the images disappeared from internet completely.

The specs of Nexus 5 are similar to LG G2 apart from few things. The specs shows that this is going to be the best phone around. The leaked service manual doesn’t say anything about the special camera lens.
Due to being from Google, the Nexus have full priority over Android operating system updates, long before other devices such as Samsung’s Galaxy and other devices that use Android. Of course they are fully automatic.
We are expecting this phone to be announced on 14th of October, a week away. And might be available to buy from Google Play Store from beginning of November. I’m planning to replace my Galaxy Nexus with Nexus 5. Are you getting one too?
