LG is again selected to be the producer for the upcoming Nexus 5. Some sources leaked the design and technical specification recently and it looks really cool.
Android and Me said that LG has begun the research and development for Nexus 5 and from the image above it looks more rounded than the Nexus 4 and has similar finish close to the Galaxy Nexus made by Samsung.
In addition, the Nexus 5 has a 5.2 inch OLED Screen with Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution. It also has a 2.3 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor (4G LKTE RF360 ready) and 3GB RAM (LPDDR3). There are 3 kinds of internal storage 16GB/ 32GB / 64GB on your choice.
To make it even stronger than the Galaxy S IV, the Nexus 5 has a 16 mega pixel rear camera and 2.1 mega pixel front camera and a built in 3300 mAh battery. Like the latest floating touch introduced by Samsung on 14/3/2013 on the Galaxy S IV release event, the Nexus 5 will also have such feature on a number of its applications. As it is by Google, the Nexus 5 will also have an Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie system which will be expected to roll out on the Google I/O 2013.
The Nexus 5 is rumoured to ship October 2013 and the price will be in line with the current scale used on Nexus 4.
However, there are also rumours that Google will be releasing its X Phone later on the I/O this year. It is questionable whether this device will come with X Phone or either one will be released. From the history of the Nexus line, it seems there were only one device per year. We are not sure if Google is going to break this usual practice and release both device at the same time, same year. After all, it is nice to hear from the predecessor from Nexus with its high end specifications this time. Looks like the Nexus 5 or X Phone is really trying to hunt down the Galaxy S IV.
