Nexus 4 is believed to be one of the best as well as the most acclaimed smartphone to have been released by the search giant Google. In spite of its affordable cost and great, stylish design, the device is coming off its age and finding it difficult to make a mark among the other biggies in the run. We have already seen Samsung and HTC refresh their smartphone lineup, while Apple is in the process of doing so. Nokia recently launched the Lumia 1020 while LG is all set to launch its flagship device, the G2 in just a few weeks. So when do we expect to come across the release date of new Nexus 5 device? Well the writing is perhaps on the wall if only we care to see it.
Carphone Warehouse doesn’t have the Nexus 4 on its lists anymore in their online store. The web page dedicated to the device doesn’t exist any longer. This could mean two things, firstly there might be some trouble on the retailer’s web page or secondly, Carphone Warehouse might have stopped selling the said device. As this phenomenon has been taking place for quite some time now, one can expect that the device won’t be coming back.
Another telltale sign could be the impending launch of the LG G2 itself. LG had manufactured the Nexus 4 and is one device that shares a lot of commonality with the LG Optimus G launched last year. That’s not all since both the smartphones were also launched at around the same time. Now while LG is in the process of coming up with the new gen LG G2 device (rumored release date of LG Optimus G2 on August 7), experts opine that the Nexus 5 couldn’t be far off either. More so since its LG again that is being associated with the manufacturing of the next Nexus smartphone.
Further, the next Nexus 5 could also be seen having a similar build as the G2. The LG G2 is built around the Snapdragon 800 chip and though this is the only aspect that has been confirmed, the other tech bits that are being associated with the new G2 include 2 GB to 3GB of RAM, a 5.2 inch full HD IPS display, 2,700 mAh battery along with a 13 mp primary camera with optical image stabilization.
One can only expect form the current turn of events that the Nexus 5 might be on its way soon. And if you wish to know what it would be like, the G2 can be the answer.
