The much awaited Google Nexus 5 (made by LG) has been finally officially announced after months of speculation, rumors and leaks and as with the Google Nexus tradition, there’s a new Android version as well, Android 4.4 KitKat.
The Google Nexus 5 features a 4.95-inch Full HD (1920×1080) IPS display making up a ppi of 445. There’s also LG’s advanced in-cell touch tech which recognizes your touch more faster. It features the latest and the greatest Quad-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.2 GHz along with 2 GB of RAM. There are two variants, a 16 and 32 GB one and as expected, there’s no way to expand the storage.
The Nexus 5 comes with a 8 MP rear camera with OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) along with a 1.3 MP front facing camera. It features the usual array of connectivity options and there’s LTE connectivity as well for markets such as the US. A modest 2300 mAh battery runs the show.
And then there’s the latest Android 4.4 KitKat which brings a more polished interface, improved performance and some cool new features.
Google Nexus 5 Availability
The Google Nexus 5 is available starting today via the Google Play Store in countries like U.S., Canada, U.K., Australia, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Japan and Korea and its “coming soon to India”. The device will be rolled out gradually across the world in mid-November.
The 16 GB and 32 GB version of the Nexus 5 will cost $349 and $400 respectively.
All in all the new Google Nexus 5 is the arguably the best device right now but the only disappointment i personally i have is the battery but there’s wireless charging support as well and what’s even more exciting is that it will be coming to India pretty soon.
