One of the biggest Nexus 5 rumors doing the rounds right now is that release date is going to happen on October 14. There has been enough talk of the next device in the Nexus series of smartphones which man are claiming will also serve as the launch device of latest Android version, Android 4.4 KitKat. While several of the key specifications of the device have emerged online, the exact processor that is going to power the device is not yet known officially. Even the FCC listing of the device did not specify this aspect.
Specifications of the device for those who missed it out earlier speak of a 4.96 inch display with LTE support and Bluetooth 4.0. It would have Qi wireless charging capability too. While the length and width of the device has been defined to be 131.9 mm and 68.2 mm respectively the thickness of the handset has not been detailed till now.
The reason for October 14 release date for Nexus 5 that is reported to carry the codename Hammerhead has a few linked logic to it. For one, Nexus 4 had been launched last year at around the same time. There is also the issue of Google launching their latest Android OS the KitKat on October 14. The new OS would most logically come riding on a new gadget too. Nexus 5 is the only Google gadget that is in the offing. Another factor that does serve as a strong indicator of a new Nexus being in the offing is that Google has sold out of existing Nexus 4 stocks. And the company is showing no signs of replenishing it either.
The company to make the Nexus 5 gadget is in all probability LG. They had done a very good job with the Nexus 4 and therefore no reason for Google to consider any other maker. In that case the probability of the Nexus 5 bearing a close resemblance to the G2 handset from LG is once again a very logical conclusion.
For anxious consumers, the first week of October should be the time when all these speculations are likely to be converted into reality. For that is when Google would be sending out invites, if the date of 14 October has any real value, that is.
