Nexus 5 Coming On October 14? Top 10 Features To Expect From The Handset
Several unconfirmed reports claim that Google will unveil its successor to the Nexus 4 smartphone, the purported Nexus 5, on October 14th. Gizbot has been actively covering all major leaks and developments related to the phone over the last few weeks and we've decided to give you an idea of what features you should expect form the Nexus 5. Run through the slider below for a full list of features.
Talking about all the rumors and leaks of the Nexus 5, it all started when Google Accidentally Revealed The Nexus 5 during the unveiling of its Android KitKat Statue. The device was accidentally filmed by Google for its promo video. Since it looked nothing like Nexus 4 and had a "Nexus" logo on its rear, the picture allowed us to believe that the handset as the next Nexus handset.
And then came a slew of leaks from the FCC website. This leak gave us several details on what to expect from the device's hardware, including the fact that it would use LTE technology. Another leak that came in later showed us that the device has a unique, sizeable camera, meaning that Google might try to compete against Apple's iPhone 5S imaging brilliance.
After this, Google cleared stock of its Nexus 4 in the US by announcing a massive price cut, allowing it to clear its inventory in less than a day. Also, it is worth noting that in the last two years, Gooogle released its Nexus handsets in November, following a formal launch in October. Plus, several sources believe that the launch date has been pegged at October 14th. Go through the slider for all its features.
Apple's new iPhone 5S uses it and Samsung's next flagship will have it as well. A benchmark image was leaked yesterday and it showed the Nexus 5 delivering a performance on par with the iPhone 5S, allowing us to believe that Google might have just packed its upcoming handset with the technology as well.
A feature that was not present in the LG Nexus 4. The lack of it cost Google badly in International markets where consumer's rejected the phone since it wouldn't be able to make the most of their fast LTE data speeds.
5-inch 1080p screen display
Report's have it that the Google Nexus 5 will will use a stunning 1080x1920 pixel resolution display and will use Corning Gorilla Glass 3 technology. It will measure 5-inches.
13 Megapixel Shooter
A few weeks ago, FCC leaks showed us that the device will use a powerful 13MP camera in the rear and a MP shooter up front. Given Google's inclusion of the Photo Sphere feature in the Nexus 4, we're expecting big things as far as the imaging in the Nexus 5 is concerned.
About 3GB Of RAM
If Google does want to take on heavy weights like Samsung's Note 3 pahblets, its going to require at least 3GB of RAM to win those multi-tasking contests. Google will most probably give the device at least 3GB of RAM.
Google Nexus 5 will be released alongside Android 4.4 KitKat in October. We know this from several image leaks of the handset that have been around the Internet for a while now.
With a generous 2,700mAh battery, we expect the device to deliver more than a day of bettery life on a single charge.
We love how Google has always priced its products at low costs when compared to the competition. We expect the company to follow its traditional pricing scheme for the Nexus 5 as well.
