Google’s Nexus 4 was a game changer in the Smartphone market when it was released in 2012. The Nexus 5 is set to be the follow-up to the Nexus 4 which was the company’s 2012 star launch.
Google hasn’t announced when the new Nexus 5 will be revealed, or even if it is making one but here are the rumors on when it will arrive.
Recently, a photo was leaked by a website, purporting to be the new Google Nexus 5. It was a large white Smartphone with an LG label on the back.
It looked a lot like a white LG G2, but it was missing the Rear Key that back-button volume rocker that LG Electronics is flaunting as part of the new flagships built around the customer ethos.
Instead, it had the volume and power button on the side, which was to be expected from an LG version of a Google Nexus 5.
The first possibility was that Google would announce the Nexus 5 at its Google I/O (input/output) developer conference which takes place in May in San Francisco. However, the event came and went with no Nexus 5 or even Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie.
Sources suggest Google will keep the price of the Nexus 5 the same as the Nexus 4. That’s £239 for 8GB and £289 for 16GB.
Rumored specifications for the Nexus 5 include a Full HD screen either 5in or 5.2in in size, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor clocked at 2.3GHz and a whopping 3GB of RAM, a Nikon-branded camera, 8/16 GB of storage, and a 3140 mAh battery.
