Google has bowled us off the feet with its Nexus babies. With the Google Nexus 6 release buzz going strong, we rewind to the original Nexus 5 that ruled racks until sometime back.

Nexus 5 is a darling. Not expecting much out of it, I unabashedly fell in love with the thin wonder. With variants of 16 and 32 GB available, the Nexus 5 came for a steal. With 2 GB RAM, the 5-incher device made for great performance due to the 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 chipset.

With a high definition resolution scoring 1920 x 1080 on the pixel meter, the LG-made Nexus 5 was made to sweep us away. The IPS display made a show against the dominant AMOLED screen in the market while the image crispness made us sit up and welcome Google Nexus into our hearts.

Zooming into the present, the run up for the Google Nexus 6 release is warming up. Some say that the Nexus 6 is a beefed up avatar of its predecessor. However, loaded with a bevy of powerful specs, we expect more fireworks:

  • Snapdragon 810
  • 6-incher screen
  • ARM Cortex-A57 and A-53 CPU chipset
  • Adreno GPU
  • 1080 pixels resolution

Expect a release in the first quarter of this year. Until then, we keep our fingers crossed.
