Apple and Google are the two main competitor of the smartphone market and Apple has already done with its event launching two new iPhones, iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S. Now it’s turn of Google to show off its next Nexus smartphone.
Android 4.4 was announced recently and it will be named as Android KitKat, representing the deal between Google and the chocolate brand. In the launch vide of Android KitKat, Google shown the first actual picture of the next Nexus smartphone i.e. Nexus 5.
Rumored Nexus 5 specifications
Till now, LG is supposed to be the manufacturer of the Nexus 5 smartphone which simply means that the specifications of the new Nexus will be similar to the LG G2’s. Let see what all are the Nexus 5 specifications known till now.
Last time when LG manufactured the Nexus 4 then it was having similar specifications of LG Optimus G and this year LG has already done with the launch of LG G2. So Nexus 5 is going to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset.
The processor is going to be quad-core and it will be clocked at 2.2GHz at least. The internal RAM storage is supposed to be 2GB at least while the internal storage will be 32GB. As Nexus 5 will not have the expandable storage option so this time we may see a 64GB version or may be the 16GB but the 32GB is surely going to come.
According to latest documents via FCC, Nexus 5 is having 4.96 inch display but the overall dimensions are compact than Nexus 4 which means new Nexus smartphone will be having larger display and slightly smaller in dimensions.
The display is suppose to be 1080p resolution and I think it’s definitely going to be the same as now 1080p resolution display are becoming common.
The camera at the back is going to feature 13MP sensor just like LG G2 and the front camera will be having 2.xMP sensor for HD quality video chatting. Google will definitely provide lots of features in the camera software. The device seems to be shipped with non-removable 2300mAh battery.
Nexus 5 was first seen in the Android 4.4 KitKat commercial so it’s expected that it comes preloaded with Android KitKat only. You can watch the commercial video down here.
Nexus 5 launch date
It’s expected that Google launches the Android 4.4 KitKat and Nexus 5 together in the next month. So it’s going to be the month of October which will be holding the launching of Nexus 5.
