Nexus fans, we’ve got good news for you. Android Police has just got their hands on a leaked service manual for the yet-to-be-announced Nexus 5. If the rumors are true, then this phone may be powerful enough to beat all other Android smartphones out there.


This document claims to be a service manual for the LG-D821, and it gives us an in-depth look at Google’s new offering. The manual, as expected, comes with every bit of information like diagrams, flow charts, drawings and disassembly photos, all of which fits perfectly in line with previous rumors.

As always, we should take every rumor with a pinch of salt. But will any company go this far to create a fake service manual? We don’t think so, but if this is really a fake, then it is really a detailed one.


On the other hand, it is also possible that LG might be keeping a false manual for leaking, or perhaps someone is playing a prank. Also it is worth noting that the document clearly states that it is a draft version, and the contents can be updated in the future.

For those of you who’ve got an itch to read the entire service manual, we’ve embedded it below. All you need is just enough time to read the 281-page document.
