Even though Google would have loved to hide these leaks, they have actually made consumers more excited for the new Nexus 5. Not a lot of companies can get the hype train rolling, but almost every Android lover is excited about the Nexus smartphone.
The small bio “capture the everyday and the epic in fresh new ways” points at the new CMOS sensor on the Nexus 5, allowing users to focus the camera much faster and possibly change the focus after the photo has been taken.
LG will add a 8MP camera with optical image stabilisation and it will be the first mobile CMOS sensor. According to leakers, Google will add new UI changes to the camera application on KitKat 4.4.
The Nexus 5 will also include a Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16/32GB of internal storage, 2400/3000mAh battery, WiFi, LTE and NFC. The report on two battery sizes for two storage sizes may be false, but it sounds like an incredible idea similar to the Moto Droid.
Google will announce the Nexus 5 on October 21 according to some leakers, others believe it could come tomorrow. The likelihood it will be announced in November is pretty low, considering they are preparing to add it on the Google Play store.
Price wise, Google is looking to completely change the game, starting the Nexus 5 at $349 with 16GB of internal storage. We believe it will cost $399 or $449 for the 32GB Nexus 5, depending on if the battery size increases.
The Google Play store won’t be the only place to buy the Nexus 5, we expect Best Buy, Walmart and others to grab the new smartphone. T-Mobile may be the only carrier in the US to pick up the device, with the rest not interested in a $0 down contract.
