Nexus 5 will feature Snapdragon 800 chip and not Snapdragon 600: Rumor

Nexus 5

As the LG G2 was announced last week, there were plenty of speculations about what the Nexus 4 successor would be like, if LG were to manufacture it. And shortly after, we heard some reports from Korea which hinted that the Nexus 5 will indeed come from LG and will feature comparable specs to the LG G2. However, a few features were claimed to be different to save costs and retain a Nexus 4 like price point ($299 and $349). But a new rumor has now indicated that the Nexus 5 won’t be all that different in terms of specs compared to the LG G2, at least in terms of the SoC on board.

Previously reported to sport a Snapdragon 600 chip, the Nexus 5 is now rumored to feature the ultra-powerful Snapdragon 800 chipset. This new rumor comes from the Vietnamese site This report further reiterates that the Nexus 5 will sport the same 5.2 inch 1080p display as seen on the G2, with the same bezel less design. We’re not sure how believable these reports are, but it’s certainly something to think about. In the past, we were told that Motorola could be manufacturing the next Nexus with subsequent reports contradicting those claims. The smartphone could also feature a 10MP camera, going by previous leaks.
