Last year in November, Google released the Nexus 4. The Nexus 4 was manufactured by LG. The companies faced lots of inventory issues in the beginning, but it was all sorted out later on. The Nexus 4 was a legendary device in itself because of the great specifications it packed along with an attractive price. Later on, LG released a white version of the device which looked extremely gorgeous to me. Recently, the Nexus 4 was discontinued in the United States, which leads us to believe that a new Nexus mobile phone (or a phablet) might be in works and would launch very soon.
To support our theory, leaks have been popping up all over the internet about the Nexus 5, most of them coming from the tipster @evleaks. Recently Google announced that they will be unveiling a new version of Android, named KitKat and sporting a 4.4.x version number very soon. Generally, Google unveils a new Nexus device which accompanies a new Android version. Android 4.2 was accompanied by the Nexus 4 and Android 4.3 was accompanied by the second-gen Nexus 7.
Let’s put it all together – A new Android version, the older Nexus mobile phone discontinued and innumerous leaks about the new Nexus device along with rumored launch dates. So, in this post, I’m gonna compile leaks about the Nexus 5. The Nexus 5’s first physical appearance was leaked when Google released a video for Android 4.4 KitKat when one of the employees in the video had a never-before seen Nexus device in their hands.
Well, according to the leaks, it turns out that Google picked LG to manufacture the Nexus 5 as well.
Now that we’ve wrapped up what the Google Nexus 5 should be, let me tell you that I have already stated every single specification that has been leaked till date. I’m guessing that you might want a round-up of the leaked specifications, so here we go:
Now, one may ask when can they get their hands on the pretty-spec’d device. According to the leaks, the Google Nexus 5 may launch as early as October 30 along with a refresh of the Nexus 10, which will be manufactured by Asus this time. Shipping might start a week later. Now for the price, Google should keep the trend alive and the pricing might be the same as that of the Nexus 4 when it was launched, but a $50 increment wouldn’t be unfair either. Anyways, we’ll be covering the launch of Nexus 5, Nexus 10 and Android 4.4 KitKat, so stay tuned!
