Rumors about the new Google Nexus 5 have gained momentum with the launch month of October drawing closer. Google had come out with a video show casing their Android 4.4 Kit Kat and the device on which the OS was shown to be running on was some unknown smartphone device. The conclusion therefore logically drawn was that the device itself was the Nexus 5. The video also shows the device to be made by LG giving further credibility to the conclusion.
Details about the new device, which we are concluding to be the Nexus 5 has also been listed in the FCC site albeit a scratchy one. Those who are interested to learn more about what the Nexus 5 could be like can see the rendered version of the set on some sites created by Droid-life. These rendered projections show the large Nexus logo on the rear of the device as well as the camera and flash which comes along with. The device can be expected to be slimmer in design while sporting around a 5 inches display. Another of its design feature could be its thin bezel layout.
The device could bear some sort of a resemblance with the LG G2 which has a 5 inch screen and a display of 1080p resolution. The core processor would be a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chip. The FCC listing indicates the device to support LTE. Retailing of the Nexus 5 could be via the AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint channels as they had launched their Nexus 7 via Verizon with support for their 4G LTE network.
Another area where the Nexus 5 could be excelling the competition is the inclusion of a higher specced camera what with Google rumored to be collaborating with Nikon on this. Apple has already upped the ante on this by incorporating a more advanced camera on the new iPhone 5s which leaves Google quite some room to innovate and improve.
As for its launch, experts believe it could be end October when the Nexus 5 is eventually made official. That is about the same time the Nexus 4 was launched. Another factor backing the above speculation is that this would make for a nice gift for Android fans worldwide as the Google operating system celebrates its birthday on Nov 5th.
