An Alleged Leak Of LG's Nexus 5 2015 ('Bullhead') Pops Up On Google+

Wondering what the Nexus 5 2015 "Bullhead" that we've been speculating about for the last three months might look like? An alleged leaked photo of the phone might be our first glimpse. Indonesian Google+ user Inno Yudha posted the photo above to a Nexus enthusiast community on Sunday afternoon (US time). He gave no indication of what it is, but based on the clear "Nexus" label on the rear, the "not for sale" markers, and the general size, many are speculating that this is a pre-retail version of LG's Nexus phone.

We're pretty skeptical about this one. On the one hand it roughly matches fan-made renders published last week.

[Rumor] Possible Galaxy S III Leaked Specs Strain Credulity: 1.5GHz Quad-Core Exynos Processor And 1080p Display

Grab your salt-shakers, people, this one's a doozy. According to BGR, their "trusted sources", whom we heard from a while back, have leaked a few extra details regarding the alleged HD screen and quad-core processor. Apparently the rumored quad-core processor will be a Samsung Exynos, clocked to 1.5GHz, tucked underneath an astonishing 4.8" 1080p display.

Not an actual image of the device.

Here's the full list of specs, according to BGR's sources:

  • 1.5GHz quad-core Samsung Exynos processor
  • 4.8-inch “full HD” 1080p resolution with 16:9 aspect ratio display
  • A 2-megapixel front-facing camera and an 8-megapixel rear camera
  • Ceramic case
  • 4G LTE
  • Android 4.0

While most of these specs sound perfectly reasonable and even expected (a Galaxy S III launching without LTE or ICS would be unacceptable), we're a little skeptical of some of these specs.

[Leak] [Update] Is This The Sony Xperia Duo?

Update: Another picture has surfaced over at IT168, and this time the Xperia duo name is quite clear underneath.

A mysterious device that most are pegging as the upcoming Sony Xperia Duo has made a cameo over at Chinese website IT168. Rumor has it the the Duo moniker suggests that this will be the first dual-core device from Sony, but we have nothing that confirms (or denies) that info, so take it at face value.

Very little is known about this device at the time - the pictures suggest a near edge-to-edge display and a possible front facing camera, but that's about it.

[Unconfirmed] Acer Delaying Iconia A100 Tablet Due To Honeycomb Restrictions On 7-Inch Screens?

The Acer Iconia A100 - a 7-inch Honeycomb tablet [unlike the 10" A500... makes sense, right? - Aaron]- was originally slated to hit the market in late May/early June, but has been delayed until August/September due to restrictions with Honeycomb on a 7-inch, 1024*600 display. Honeycomb was designed to take advantage of 10 inch, 1280*800 displays, and according to Digitimes, Google is too busy "resolving other issues" to tend to this little debacle, so Acer had no choice but to delay the device.

The first question that comes to my mind, however, has nothing to do with Acer - but instead, HTC and the Flyer (for those who may not know, the HTC Flyer also sports a 7 inch, 1024*600 display).

HTC Holiday ROM Leaks, All But Confirms Some Killer Specs

The HTC Holiday has been somewhat elusive up until now, but 911sniper has gotten ahold of a leaked ROM that, if legit, shows some absolutely beastly specs for this upcoming AT&T monster. Check it out:

Here's the simple breakdown:

  • 4.5 Inch qHD 960x540 display
  • 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8MP rear camera, 1.3MP front camera
  • Bluetooth 3.0
  • 802.11 b/g/n WiFi

If the actual device holds true to these specs (and I see no reason why it wouldn't), then this is definitely a piece of hardware to watch for. With specs like that, it's likely to scorch everything on the market.

[Unconfirmed] Did Samsung Downgrade Components In The First-Gen Galaxy Tab WiFi?

We've been able to speak so highly of Samsung lately, considering its timely source code releases and recent device updates, but now this happens. Rumor has it that Sammy has duped owners of the Galaxy Tab WiFi by replacing the CPU with an older version, which in turn required a downgraded graphics processor, too. This is, of course, in comparison to the 3G Galaxy Tab, which was released several months prior to the WiFi version.

The 3G Tab has a 1GHz Samsung Hummingbird processor along side a PowerVR SGX 540 for graphics processing. According to a thread over at the XDA Forums, the WiFi Tab only has a 1GHz OMAP 3630 with a PowerVR SGX 530 handling the graphics.
