We have interesting news about the Google Nexus 5, the soon to be announced next-gen flagship device in the Nexus series. Myce.com was able to get hold of a log from the Nexus 5 and AndroidWorld.it went through it in detail, as a result of which the site was able to get valuable information about the upcoming smartphone.
You must already have seen the Google Nexus 5 pop up in a number of reports and videos, and of course let’s not forget the Android 4.4 KitKat video in which Google employees were seen using the device as if it was a part of their life. When you sum up all this, we come to one simple conclusion – the Google Nexus 5 is real and it’s ‘coming soon’ to a retail store and website near you.
The Google Nexus 5 also has a number of other names, you might have heard about it as the LG D820 and Hammerhead. You will be surprised to know that the website mentioned above took the trouble of going through thousands of lines in the log (around 133,000 lines) in order to get useful information about the Google Nexus 5.
A lot of efforts were put into the process and the results have been very positive. The spec details found from this analysis very much matches the spec sheet that has been leaked on the Internet earlier. So before you take a look at the probable specs, we want to know that if you have been following the Nexus 5 since some time now, then don’t expect any big surprises.
So coming to the tech specs, the Google Nexus 5 has a 5-inch touchscreen display (4.97-inch to be exact) and this time has a full HD display. So not only does the Nexus 5 have a 1080 x 1920 pixels screen resolution but it also has a pixel density of 442 ppi, a number that technically just beats the pixel density of the Samsung Galaxy S4. The device is equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset, one of the best in the market today. So the device will be powered by a quad-core processor, Adreno 330 GPU and will have 2GB of RAM. But from the log, we just know that the device has 2GB of RAM. The Google Nexus 5 has 16GB of internal storage, runs on Android Key Lime Pie (most probably Android 4.4 KitKat) and has build version KRS74H.
But there do seem to be changes in the hardware department, at least according to the log information. The Google Nexus 5 is expected to feature an 8MP primary camera and a 1.2MP secondary camera. Both these values sound disappointing, and since LG is the company that will be manufacturing this device, a 13MP primary camera and a 2MP secondary camera similar to the LG G2 should not be a problem whatsoever. The source also said that the camera on the device might not be equipped with optical image stabilization (OIS), but we have our fingers crossed.
As far as connectivity is concerned, the Nexus 5 will have support for dual-band Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC and GPS connectivity. The log report also said that the Nexus 5 will feature wireless charging but there was no information available about the battery capacity and performance. But according to the document from FCC, the Google Nexus 5 will be equipped with a 2300mAh battery. We don’t mind with the 2300mAh at all and will be even happier if Google and LG can pack some more juice into the device.
We are still not done with the specs and features; the Google Nexus 5 has a lot more to offer. Along with the powerful hardware and wide range of connectivity options mentioned earlier, the smartphone also comes with a number of sensors. So the sensors include accelerometer, magnetometer, gyroscope, proximity sensor, light sensors and a barometer.
Finally, for those who want to take a quick look at the entire list, here are the key specifications of the highly anticipated Nexus 5.
