LG Nexus 5 2015 to only have 2GB of RAM?

Two new Nexus phones are set to launch at the end of the month, but the smaller of the two – the LG-made Nexus 5 2015 – may be a little underpowered. According to Italian website Androidworld.it, it will only have 2GB of RAM. That's the same as 2013's Nexus 5.

While that doesn't mark out LG's phone as weak exactly, it would position the handset as more of a mid-range device than a flagship. Most top-of-the-range models come with 3GB of RAM, with some even pushing 4GB.

Of course this data is leaked, so could be off the mark. Or LG could want to keep the price down. Android fans wanting more grunt could always opt for the Huawei-made Nexus 6, after all, which will have a bigger screen and most probably more power.

The rest of the specs in the leak confirm what we've already heard. The Nexus 5 is expected to have a 5.2-inch Full HD screen, Snapdragon 808 CPU and either 32GB or 64GB storage.

Huawei's 5.7-incher is thought to have a QHD screen.

Both should be announced on September 29th, and both should be available to pre-order on October 13th.

They will be the first phones to run Android 6.0 Marshmallow, the latest version of Google's mobile operating system.
