Rumors of Google’s next Nexus phone Nexus 5 are picking up in intensity and frequency each day. Almost all major smartphone manufacturers have up to this moment launched a high end flagship smartphone with a large screen, typically about 5 inches. Google, with LG, appears to be gearing to that point as the 5 inch Nexus 5 as the newest rumor hints at an October 14th launch. If you are not up to date with the developments of Nexus 5 and would like to, you would appreciate to read of how Nexus 5 could come with an OIS camera and how Nexus 4 is dying a slow death.
Anyway, just yesterday, FCC filings of a possible LG G2 variant LG D821 was the final proof that another device, an LG D820, was indeed a nexus device, a Nexus 5. More interesting to more people, the Google Nexus 5 is expected to be the first device to come with the latest version of Android, KitKat 4.4. A source who spoke to AusDroid confirmed that indeed, a mysterious device whose images were accidently included the first Android 4.4 KitKat video was certainly Nexus 5.
It is understandable that Google’s Nexus fan base is growing by the moment since most Nexus devices launch with tons of goodies – from the launch of a new version of Android to revealing devices with high end specs and selling them at very very low prices. If you are as anxious about laying your hands on Nexus 5 as I am, you should know that it takes the design of LG G2 and boasts of a 2.26 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC, 2 GB of RAM, a 2,300 mAh battery, possibly a choice of 16 and 32 GB onboard memory and of course, an impressive 4.96 inch 1080p display.
Well, we wait for this nexus device with double anticipation because Android KitKat should be something completely new and most of us look forward to it more than we do the Nexus. October 14th is exactly a month away, but I am sure we will see all kinds of rumors and leaks that draw the accurate picture of the device and reveal all specs and features. Keep checking here.
