Leaker claims to offer extremely early first look at the back of Nexus 5 (2015)


Nexus 5 2015 back cover leak

With the OnePlus 2 and Motorola X Style (Pure Edition in the states) flagships being unveiled this week with huge 5.5-inch+ displays, our hope of finding a phone we can easily use with hand now lies in the Nexus 5 (2015). Still only rumor, leaker @Onleaks claims to have posted an extremely early first look at what the back of this LG-made device will offer. Keep in mind this isn’t the actual back, only something a case maker was able to draw up based on early offer.

The most obvious point of interest is the 3 holes on the back. While we’re not entirely sure, it seems one could be for the camera lens, while the one below it is for some kind of fingerprint scanner. That one on the side? Likely flash and some other sensor (possibly laser focus or something along those lines). We also get a rough picture of the form factor. Very rounded, almost the exact opposite of a Sony Xperia device. If we analyze the sides, it seems the power button is positioned above the volume rocker, and there’s a hole on top for the 3.5mm headphone hack. On the bottom a cutout for the USB port can be see, as well as another hole which could be for the microphone.

Other than that, there’s much else to go on. Only time will tell us if this is our first look at the back silhouette of a Nexus 5 (2015) but given @Onleaks’ track record, whenever he posts something new, we tend to listen.
