The tech world is seeing a strong increase in the number of Nexus 5 leaks as we move closer to October 14, the purported date on which Google is supposed to launch its next smartphone. The latets leak, which was picked up by MyCe in the form of a log file, has revealed and confirm certain important features of the next Nexus phone : Miracst, Wireless charging and multiple themes.
Starting off with wireless charging, it's a feature that we've seen on some of Nokia's high end Lumia handsets. It will allow you to place your phone on a charging plate or pad to facilitate wireless charging. A few weeks ago, leaks from the filings on the FCC website hinted that these features would be available on the Nexus 5, but this latest leak has confirmed it.
Up next, the logs indicate that the phone might use Miracast, an application that will allow you to wirelessly beam your Android screen onto your TV. And no, this should not be confused with Google's Chromecast dongle, which uses your Wi-Fi network. Mirocast is a mirroring technology that allows you to use your TV as an extension of your Android device.
The last and maybe the most exciting part about the leak is that the Nexus 5 might ship with multiple themes. The screenshots from MyCe showed that there were icons with a variety of colors in the notification bar. CNET is speculating that users might possibly be able to choose their own colors in KitKat.
The log also went on to confirm previously reported specs that have been compiled from several leaks. If the phone does turn out to be a reality, it will sport a 5-inch, 442 ppi full HD display. For processing, it will use 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 CPU along with 2GB of RAM. For imaging there will be a 8-megapixel rear camera and 1.2-megapixel front. And this time on Google has included LTE radio,a feature that was badly missed in the Nexus 4. There will also be NFC capability. And yes, the device will ship with Android KitKat.
