Google’s Nexus 5 handset has been tipped for announcement on the 5th of November at Google’s Tel-Aviv event, and based on the rumors, the handset is pegged to sport an 8MP rear-facing camera with built-in optical image stabilization, which on paper should result in a pretty decent camera. Well thanks to a series of posts on a Google employee’s Google+ account, a couple of images taken by the Nexus 5 have made its way online. However some of them have since been removed at the request of the user to protect their privacy, but the image above is one of the samples pulled from their Google+ page.
As you can see from the photo’s EXIF data, it clearly states that the device used to take the photo is that of the Nexus 5. Granted EXIF data can be faked, given the handset’s impending announcement, we’ll have to give this the benefit of the doubt. Based on what we can see, the image appears to be pretty decent in terms of quality, color reproduction, and white balance, although we’ll probably have to get our hands on the phone to test it ourselves. In any case we’re sure many are excited to get their hands on the upcoming Nexus 5, so be sure to check back with us on the 5th of November for the details! In the meantime what do you guys think of the image sample so far?
