In the very near future, Google will launch two new Nexus devices, including the new LG Nexus 5 and the Huawei Nexus 6. Many leaks have so far revealed details about the design, specs and features of the upcoming smartphones, and a new report gives us no information about the Nexus 5’s front-facing camera.
Dutch tech news site TechTastic found a selfie taken with a device identified as “bullhead” that’s made by LG. That particular internal codename is associated with the new Nexus 5, assuming past leaks are accurate about Google’s Nexus plans.
Found on Google+ on a profile belonging to a Google employee who works in the Quality Assurance department, the image reveals interesting details about the selfie camera. EXIF data says the photo has a 2592 x 1944 resolution, suggesting the front-facing shooter has a 5-megapixel sensor. Furthermore, the front camera also has an f/2.0 aperture according to the same data (see image below).
Assuming the data is correct, the Nexus 5 might bring Android fans the most significant upgrade to date when it comes to front cameras. Last year’s Nexus 6 handset had a 2-megapixel front-facing camera.
