With the release of Google’s latest OS Android 4.4 KitKat on Thursday, all eyes are now on Google Nexus 5. The brand new OS will debut in the Nexus 5 system that went for sale on 31 Oct, 2013. So what to expect from Google’s new flagship device? Here are some features:
- Design and Measurements: With 4.95 inch display screen, and a full HD resolution, Google Nexus 5 is excellent for video and image viewing. The device has dimensions 69 X 138 X 8.6mm, a bit thinner and also lighter in weight than the previous generation Google nexus phone. The design aspect, well, is not clear, until we get our hands on the device. However, courtesy some images of the release, it is expected that the design is squared off shape. Google loves onscreen controls more than buttons on the handset. The best part about Nexus 5 design is the silver colour round speaker at the top, that looks so cool.
- Processor: Powered by the 2.3 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 microprocessor, with 2GB of RAM, Google Nexus 5 is one powerhouse as far as speed is concerned. Multi-tasking is far more effective on the phone.
- Camera: Google has worked very well on camera features of the phone. With an 8MP camera, and a 1.3MP secondary camera, users can boast of great camera and video features. Optical Image Stabilization is another added feature that helps in better image clicking in a low light environment.
- Price and Flash storage: The 16GB variant of Nexus 5 is available for $299 from Google Play Store. For more storage options, there is the 32GB variant that is priced at $339.
