Another alleged Nexus 5 photo surfaced along with some reported hands-on impressions of the look and feel of the device. The reported specs continue to point to a high-powered smartphone… once Google officially announces it, that is.

An alleged new image of the Google Nexus 5 handset appeared online in an unlikely place: the MacRumors forums. The image, posted on Monday, was spotted by Droid-Life which also reports expected specifications for the as-yet unannounced smartphone.

The picture looks legitimate based on the Nexus logo readable in landscape mode; the camera sensor and flash placement also jive with a Google video that accidentally (or on purpose) leaked the smartphone. The forum poster says he held the phone, which is smaller in size than the LG G2 with a back that feels like the new Nexus 7 tablet.

Droid-Life says we can expect the following hardware inside the Nexus 5:

  • A 5-inch 1080p display with pixel density of 442 ppi
  • A 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 with 2 GB of memory and 16 GB of internal storage
  • An 8 megapixel rear camera and 2 megspixel front sensor
  • Support for LTE networks; a step up from last year’s Nexus 4

A data so far indicates that LG is building the handset for Google; if so, our review of the new LG G2 could give you a good glimpse into what to expect from the Nexus 5.
