LG Google Nexus 5 details leak around the world, should launch within a week
The long awaited Google LG Nexus 5 is almost here. Yesterday some e-tailers in U .K. and Belgium “accidentally” posted and then removed pre-order pages for the device, with November 1st availability. A bit later Canadian carrier Wind put up (and, of course, quickly removed) their own Nexus page , with full specs on their official site.
Then the invitation from Google+ team arrived to an event where they promise to share some updates in a few hours. And now the invite from local LG distributor in Israel surfaced for a KitKat event on November 5th.
And if you want more, the pics from Canadian warehouse, chock-full of Nexus 5, are also floating around the net:
What all those leaks lead to – is the imminent launch of Android 4.4 KitKat and LG Nexus 5 within a week from now, possibly even today. We now also have almost official specs for the new Google flagship and can put a lot of rumors to rest.
Nexus 5 will come equipped with:
- 4.95” 1920×1080 Full HD 445ppi display with Gorilla Glass 3
- 2.3 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU
- 2GB of RAM
- 8 megapixel camera with Optical Image Stabilization
- 1.3 megapixel front camera
- Wi-fi a/b/g/n/ac, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0
- 16/32GB of built-in memory
- 2300 mAh battery
Unfortunately, those rumors about the bigger 3000 mAh battery in 32GB version of Nexus 5, was nothing but a wishful thinking. All new flagships will have the same 2300 mAh one.
The good news- is the camera. While it might lack in number of pixels/resolution, pixel count doesn’t mean much to the overall picture quality these days. Improved lenses, sensors, algorithms and OIS should finally allow you to take good casual pics in almost any conditions with Google Nexus device.
Another good news – is a wide international availability, all the leaks point to. Google has increased the Nexus price a bit to make it more attractive for LG to manufacture it in larger quantities, while LG also increased its overall production and distribution capabilities this year. So Nexus 5 worldwide rollout should start soon after the announcement, and, hopefully, we won’t have those terrible supply shortages and delays Nexus 4 experienced last year.
