While the new Moto X and Moto G have already launched, Nexus smartphone is surely the next item in the tech world that will be treated with all sorts of leak and rumor. Perhaps, the first leak surrounding the Nexus 5 (2014) has already appeared online today.
It appears that Google will not change the name of the next generation Nexus smartphone at all. Instead it would be called simply Nexus 5 (2014). However, what is quite interesting is the fact that the latest alleged screenshot coming from Twitter user @emtleaks shows the device running on Android L (v5.0), which 'L' according to the leak, stands for Lion. The screenshot belongs to GFXBench listing, which is one source via where most of the smartphones leak onto the webosphere.<blockquote class="twitter-tweet blockquote" lang="en"><p>The same source send me this screenshot.. But it look like a little bit weird.. I don't know. Thanks to our source. <a href="http://t.co/OHs1QDDgKp">pic.twitter.com/OHs1QDDgKp</a></p>— EMT Leaks (@EmtLeaks) <a href="https://twitter.com/EmtLeaks/status/508673460907032576">September 7, 2014</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
The Android L has been quite debated as the 'L' part of the version has been called by many names thus far. It was said to be codenamed Lollipop or Lemon Meringue Pie, and this is the first time that Lion is mentioned in relation to it. But it is quite possible for Lion to be its legitimate name as it is a name of another popular Nestle sweet.
Also the specs of the handset has been detailed in the alleged screenshot. According to the image, the upcoming mobile phone should arrive with a 5.2-inch touchscreen display capable of delivering a Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixels) resolution. The device would be powered by a 2.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor with Adreno 420 graphics, the same as the newly announced Samsung Galaxy Note 4 does.
Moreover, it should sport 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory, along with a 12-megapixel camera on the back, with UHD video recording capabilities, and a 2MP front camera (capable of full HD videos).
However, it should be noted that the benchmark specs are prone to last minute changes, so do expect a bit of chances at the launch time.
