Nexus 5 Almost Confirmed for the Last Week of October

Google and LG might finally be ready to make the next smartphone in the popular Nexus lineup official, and this month could turn out to be the lucky one for enthusiasts.

Supposedly called Nexus 5, the upcoming device is now said to have been almost confirmed for unveiling during the last week of October. In fact, a recent article on TechRadar notes that the mobile phone is also set to start shipping to users before month’s end. This means that Google might put it up for sale immediately after launch, while attaching a rather affordable price tag to it. Apparently, Nexus 5 might hit the market at about half the price that iPhone 5s sports at the moment, though it is expected to feature the same performance capabilities as Apple’s latest flagship handset. This means that the next Google phone out there could be priced at around £275 ($450 / €330), matching Google’s low-price, high-performance smartphone policy.

The one thing that remains to be seen is what hardware specs the device will include so as to be able to deliver the same performance levels as iPhone 5s. Previous rumors suggested that it would arrive on the market with a 5-inch full HD screen, a Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor, and 2GB of RAM. At the same time, it might also include 16GB of internal memory, an 8-megapixel camera on the back, and a front camera for making video calls. All these would work together to enable Nexus 5 to deliver some of the most appealing performance levels out there, just as a leaked GFXBench test result unveiled recently.

TechRadar suggests that Google and LG might go for the same 64-bit CPU configuration that Apple included in its iPhone 5s device, though we find it highly unlikely. 64-bit processing functionality is expected to arrive on Android devices, but not before the next year. One way or the other, specific details on the matter will be provided only at the end of this month, so stay tuned to learn more on this.
