Google hasn’t yet unveiled its new nexus smartphone but it’s been in the news for long time, leaking its reports of pricing, specs. Still lot of things are in dark stage so here’s the details to know everything about new nexus phone.
Release date of Nexus 5
Google has announced that the next version of Android will be 4.4 Kitkat (5.0 Key Lime Pie is dead for sure ) but still there is no clue as to when KitKat will arrive. Possibly new Nexus 5 will arrive around a year after the Nexus 4 in October. Google has also reduced the price of Nexus 4 signalling that they want to shift remaining stock before the Nexus 5 arrive. Droidlife is also hinting the launch date to 30th October, other possible resources are saying it may be on 28th October. Retailer Amazon has indirectly suggested that the Google Nexus 5 release date will be before 30th October by listing a leaked Nexus 5 case.
We don’t know whether it’s going to be Nexus 5 !
Google had already released the tablet version’s of the Nexus devices, Eventually called as Nexus 7 and Nexus 10. If the next nexus phone be called as Nexus 5 then the next generation will be Nexus 6 and after that Nexus 7 which doesn’t seem right that’s why we don’t know whether it’s going to be called as Nexus 5 or just a next generation of Nexus.

Nexus 5 Details
Based on leaks, we expect the Nexus 5 to have a 5-inch, 1080p display which is likely a close resemblance to the amazing panel LG is using for its flagship G2. If Google bring up the screen, equal to G2 then it’d be a major win for Android fans. Nexus 5 seems to share the Nexus 7′s oversize camera hole. I don’t expect to see expandable storage on board but for sure there will be different variants depending on storage size.
