Nexus 5 Rumors Surface, May Sport a Nikon Camera

Nexus may be appearing on our news section in the near future more frequently than we anticipated if the rumors going around are true.  Just yesterday, I wrote a story about how Asus was working on a high end smartphone that will sport an Intel Atom Z2580 (Cover Trail+) processor to be released or announced this summer.  In the same piece, I also hinted that Asus may be working on another edition of the popular Nexus 7 tablet in collaboration with Google.  A new rumor is that Google may actually be putting its efforts on a new Nexus device, this time with LG again, to develop a Nexus 5 device.

Nexus 7 was a 7 inch mini-tablet.  Nexus 10 was a 10 inch tablet and Nexus 4 was a 4 inch smartphone.  Would it be safe to assume that Nexus 5 will be a 5 inch phablet or a smartphone?  From the rumor we have heard, this may be in the league of high end smartphones as it may sport a Nikon camera, but we do not know anything about the quality yet.

There was a story earlier that LG’s ‘Megalodon’ prototype smartphone may actually be a Nexus 5.  According to a source who talked to Phone Arena, the next Nexus device is going to be in the league of high end high performance gadgets and may sport a 5 inch Full HD screen with a 1080p resolution, a Qualcomm 600 processor, 2 GB RAM and 8 and 16GB internal memory.  The biggest win for this smartphone or phablet however will be a 3140 mA battery and a new version of Android Operating System 5.0 Key Lime Pie.

The camera may just be the major selling point of the phone or phablet if it comes with Nikon branding.  Nikon is a popular name when it comes to cameras but it had not ventured into the smartphone industry successfully before.

Now that smartphones seemed to have reached a whole new level of processing power and memory, will the next battlefield be in cameras?  Is HTC One the current leader with an Ultrapixels camera or does Google and LG have something in the kitchen that will upset the market?
