Recently, a new image has surfaced over the internet, possibly showing the new Nexus 5 from LG.
The source remains anonymous but claims that the image contains the prototype of the new LG Nexus 5. The source also claims that the device shown in the image is one of those devices who are being tested by Google for their next Nexus 5 smartphone. This is the same smartphone that was speculated as the LG Megalodon handset few days ago.
What features to expect in the new Nexus 5
The first question that comes to mind is that, what the new Nexus 5 will bring for the people. What compelling features will it have that would make people go for it. Although the following specs are least expected to be true, but they give a proper mockup of what the new Nexus 5 will have
- 5.2 inch OLED display with 1920 x 1080 resolution
- 2.3 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor
- 3GB RAM
- 16 MP Rear camera (more details below)
- 2.1 MP front facing camera capable of recording 1080p video
- 3300mAh battery
- Front stereo speakers
- Possibly Android 5.0
The specs look stunning and awesome and so does the phone itself in the picture. But don’t be too over excited as the specs might change over time. Especially when we look at the Snapdragon 800 which is not even in the market yet.
Nexus 5 is considered to be the first smart phone to have the “triple camera sensor thing” powered by Nikon branding. This clearly indicates that Google is putting a much greater focus on introducing powerful camers for its Nexus line of series. A tweet from Vic Gundotra confirms about this revolutionary camera which stated as,
The phone is also rumored to come in 16, 32 and 64GB variants and might also have some gesture like controls for navigation, zooming, reading ebooks etc. Expected date of launch for the Nexus 5 will be around October this year
There is nothing from Google or any of its employees about the new Nexus 5 but we can pretty much say, with increasing competition from Samsung Galaxy devices and new Apple iPhones, that Google is in the process of producing the next Nexus 5.
