Hello, Nexus 5 Service Manual.

lg nexus 5

Well, here is a bountiful leak on a Saturday night. Take a look at the Nexus 5 official service manual (LG-D821), which gives us just about every dirty detail you could ask for outside of a release date and price. We’ve included the 281-page document for you below in case you are at home tonight chillin’. We’re out and about, but will have more tomorrow. 

So far, we’ve got spec confirmations of:

  • 4.95″ 1080p display (IPS TFT for those interested)
  • 32GB internal storage (other capacities not specified)
  • 2GB RAM
  • MSM8974 aka Snapdragon 800 at 2.3GHz
  • 8MP OIS rear camera, 1.3MP front camera
  • 2300mAh battery
  • Sensors: Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Compass, Proximity/Ambient Light, Pressure
  • Slimport compatibility
  • Micro SIM slot
  • Notification light
  • Wireless charging
  • NFC
  • Bluetooth 3.0 (probably an error)
  • UMTS/GSM/CDMA/LTE compatibility

    The LG-D821 is the international version – it is not relevant to us here in the USA.

    The models we need to be paying attention to are:


    They were certified at the FCC in early September, although details are difficult to find on them.

    I still am hoping that with Verizon switching to voice over LTE and the LTE band 4 being utilized for LTE advanced for Verizon, that is a sliver of hope the phone would work on Verizon.

    Hey, there is a new app called Nexus 5 hype that keep track of significant news and notifies you when the Nexus 5 is about to be launched


  • kkloster

    Anybody notice that this appears to be VoLTE ready (pp 26 & 27)? It also looks like it is exactly the same physical dimensions as the Nexus 4 (p 6). Gonna be some thin bezels I guess.

    LG has asked Android Police to take the images down…That sounds like a confirmation of accuracy…

  • RavnosCC

    To VZW or not to VZW? That is the question…

    • Adam Truelove

      I think we all know the answer.

      • RavnosCC

        I can still hope with blissful ignorance.

    Hmm… what’s up with the final listed sensor “Pressure”?
    Is it merely for sensing touch on the screen, or for atmospheric, or could it be levels of pressure sensitivity as in a wacom digitizer of sorts (ala GN2/3)??? Too much to hope for the latter I guess…

      Well seeing as the phone doesn’t have an ear piece it may have something to do with bone induction.
