Google Nexus 5: Release Date, Price, Specs, Features

Looking for all the Nexus 5 release date rumors, specs and features ahead of its suspected Q4 launch on October 14th, 2013? You’ve come to the right place! There has been a lot of buzz in the techosphere recently about Google’s upcoming smartphone, the Nexus 5 (with 5 inch display screen) and if the insider tips are to be believed then Google’s Nexus 5 may very well be the next new rival for the iPhone 5S, Samsung Galaxy S4, Sony Xperia Z1 and LG G2. It appears that the Nexus 5 is closer than ever with the predecessor Nexus 4 selling out after a recent price cut, the announcement of Android 4.4 KitKat (scheduled for Q4 launch) and the made by LG new Nexus 5 device being spotted in the wild. Yes, you heard it right — the Nexus 5 is going be the first Android device to run Google’s Android KitKat update (version 4.4).

We’ve glimpsed it in leaked photos and videos, and hopefully sometime in October we’ll finally see the new Nexus 5 on the Google’s Play store. Following previous accounts that indicated a late October release for Google’s next “pure Google” smartphone, anonymous sources cited that Google’s Nexus 5 will definitely be released sometime in October. The site confirms that LG will build Nexus 5, it will run Android 4.4 KitKat and it’ll be priced to contend with mid-range smartphones. With rumored specs that indicate a 5-inch display, a 13-megapixel camera, 2GB or 3GB of RAM and a 2,700 mAh battery, a mid-range price tag could make the new Nexus 5 difficult to resist.

Nexus 5 Launch Date

Diverse accounts confirm that Google will unveil the Nexus 5 on October 14 along with the new Android 4.4 KitKat OS. Other reports even asserted that Google Nexus 5 will be launched with 10-inch tablet – Nexus 10.2. However, other unnamed sources have stated: “The next Nexus phone should arrive sometime in October, possibly around October 31st, 2013.”

Google Nexus 5; Top 10 (Expected) Killer Specs, Features, Pricing

The Google Nexus 5 will improve on the existing specs of the Nexus 4 with recent rumors pointing to a substantial leap in performance. Google has yet to officially announce/launch the handset yet, but we already know a great deal about the handset. Here are top 10 killer things that the Nexus 5 will almost certainly boast of:

5″ Screen, 1080p Full DH Display: Just like the upcoming LG G2, Google Nexus 5 will come with 1080×1920 pixel resolution and will use Corning Gorilla Glass 3 technology. The display size will be the benchmark 5 inches.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 Processor: The new Nexus 5 smartphone is anticipated to come with the powerful quad chip, which will make the device not only super smooth to operate but also very much future-proof.

Adreno 330 GPU: One of the most interesting rumored features of Google Nexus 5 is its own graphics processor that is at par with iPhone 5S’ M7 graphics chip.

Android KitKat: This one is pretty obvious though; the Google Nexus 5 will be the first ever Android powered smartphone to run the latest 4.4 Kitkat.

13 Megapixel Primary Camera: Google Nexus 5′s 13MP camera will be equipped with unique shooting features and come paired with 2MP front-facing camera for video calling. You can also anticipate to glimpse a hugely overhauled camera application UX inside Android 4.4 as well.

2 or 3 GB of RAM: It is still unclear whether the Nexus 5 will get a 2 or 3 GB of RAM, but we’ll wish it is the latter.

Storage Options: Just like its predecessor though, one of the complaints on the Google Nexus 5 is most likely going to be its limited (non-expandable) storage. Reports suggest that the handset will be available in various storage options – 16GB and 32GB. But we are still hopeful that Google will do something about it and release Nexus 5 with an expandable storage via microSD slot.

LTE Support: The Nexus 4 lacked this connectivity feature but if reports are to be believed, then Nexus 5 will offer LTE support.

Bigger battery – Google Nexus 5 will pack a much powerful battery than Nexus 4 did; a generous 2,700 mAh battery or a even more powerful 3,000 mAh battery can be expected.

Cut Throat Pricing – One of the most attractive features of Google products is friendly price tag with amazing features. Google Nexus 5 is anticipated to follow the pricing strategy of its predecessor – LG Nexus 4. Instead of a $650 unlocked price tag, the Nexus 4 touched down with $299 and $350 price tags, much cheaper and affordable than its rivals

    Nexus 5 is a nice phone but still Google has to do lot improvements in terms of competition with Samsung. Samsung phones are much better and cheaper in price

  2. What?! No microSD slot again? Seriously, what is wrong with Google? Internal storage of 32GB does sound nice but with option to expand it, I’m sure there will be more people interested to fetch Nexus 5.
