Previous leaks pointed at the three main Canadian carriers grabbing the Nexus 5 and it looks like Wind Mobile will also be getting Google’s newest smartphone. In the US we may see T-Mobile and AT&T picking up the cheap smartphone.
On the Wind Mobile pre-registration page users got a good look at all of the new Nexus 5 specs, most match previous leaks on the device. The Nexus 5 will have a 4.95-inch 1080p display, 8MP OIS rear camera, Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16/32GB internal storage, WiFi ac, NFC and Bluetooth 4.0.
The battery specs are not disclosed on the promotional page, but we have already heard about the 2400mAh battery sealed into the Nexus 5. There may be a second 32GB Nexus 5 coming with a larger 3000mAh battery, however some leakers believe this is a false claim.
We already knew all of the specs and this is just a continuation on the pattern. According to new reports, the Nexus 5 will be available on October 31 or November 1. Google is set to hold an event on one of the two days, preferably November 1, after Halloween.
Google will also announce the next version of Android, KitKat 4.4, set to come with new optimisation for cheaper devices and a rework on the design side. We still cannot see this being a huge overhaul on the operating system, but another small update to the platform.
We are also likely to see the second generation Nexus 10 make an appearance, set to come with the same display but a new design and updated internals similar to the Nexus 5. Other than that, Google is apparently developing a TV and video game console and a smartwatch, these could both be revealed at the event.
