Apparently, the top executives at Google are gearing up for a major device launch before this present week comes to an end. Yes, you have guessed it right, the product what we are talking about is the Nexus 5 which will be assembled by LG.
Proofs suggesting Nexus 5 to be released on 1st November
The best one on can be convinced that the LG-assembled Nexus 5 will be launched in the market by this weekend is the images of the device that have been willingly provided by several leakers from Asia. GBM selected a new bunch of something that appeared as a fully-functional and a powered on Android device, built by LG. This new device appeared the same like the pictures of Nexus 5 that were published previously. However, what is the most significant thing about the leaked images is the story that defines these images. The shots of Nexus 5 hint at the device’s NCC filing procedure. One blog site reported that the Taiwanese government agency that is in charge of the accreditation of electronic products has received the Nexus 5 for the suitable rankings and ratings before it is released on a wide scale.
The logic seems pretty reasonable. LG is an Asia based handset manufacturer and wants to distribute the new device not just in the U.S. markets but also in those markets where it expects to sell the product in bulk volumes. Moreover, the recent leaked pictures complement the ones that were leaked in the past weeks. Some of the pictures have come from the Google stable itself.
Changes in Play Store
The Google Play Store is the first place where Google will be displaying the Nexus 5. In the past few days, the Play Store has undergone some minor but exciting modifications. The first modification is the order page for Nexus 5 which has been designed into a more optimal one. The navigation is also made hassle-free so prospective buyers can easily purchase the device. Some other modifications include updates for some applications, allegedly so that they can be effortlessly used on the new gadget.
Now that Google Nexus 5 release is already speculated to be Nov.1, the features and specifications of the Android 4.4 Kit Kat Phone have been leaked.
A North American telecom company has apparently leaked the features and specifications of the phone on its website and has also opened the channel for the pre-registration of the phone.
The telecom giant is called Wind Mobile and it has updated its Facebook page with the pre-registration of the Google Nexus 5. The caption of the phone reads, “Google Nexus 5. The smart, new phone made to capture the moments that matter”.
According to IBtimes.com, “Google nexus 5 will sport a 4.95-inch full HD (1920x1080p) display with 445 ppi (pixels per inch). It is also reported that the phone will come with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 screen shield.”
From the specs it could be gathered that LG’s new offering will run on the Android v4.4 Kit Kat OS and other features of the phone will include 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 series quad-core processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB/32GB storage, 8.0-megapixel main camera with OIS (Optical Image Stabilizations), and 1.3-megapixel snapper on the front. The connectivity options include dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v4.0 and NFC (Android Beam).
The leaked specifications of the phone are similar to what was rumored. So it is expected that Google Nexus 5 will come with some brilliant specs which could even take down Apple’s cheap version of iPhone called Apple iPhone 5C.
Coming to the price of Google Nexus 5, though there is no confirmation regarding the price of the Android Kit Kat phone the industry experts are saying that the 16 GB version of phone will start from $349.

iPhone 5C or the Google Nexus 5- Why will be your best bet?
After months of speculations and rumors, Google is all set to grab all the limelight, either in the online domain or physically. It will soon be announcing at least one new brand for the Nexus series, the Nexus 5. The Nexus 5 will be assembled by LG. Needless to say, the Nexus 5 will be replacing the Nexus 4. The Nexus 4 is currently the flagship Nexus device. Once the Nexus 5 is launched, it will be giving stiff competition to the iPhone 5C as well as the iPhone 5S. The launch is expected to happen anytime in 2014.
The iPhone 5C features almost a similar basic design like the iPhone 5. The iPhone 5C has a 4.0 inch display screen. The iPhone 5C does not feature a glass and aluminum body as seen with all other Apple iphones. Instead, the iPhone 5C embraces a polycarbonate body, which has earlier been exploited by Samsung and other handset manufacturers.
The Google Nexus 4 sports a 1280 x 768 , 4.7-inch display screen. It is expected that Nexus 5’s screen will be bigger than this and also feature higher resolution display. Rumors mills are speculating that the Google Nexus will sport a 4.95-inch full HD display. However, the screen details have not yet been confirmed yet.
By no means, is the Apple iPhone 5C a ‘cheap’ device as claimed by many. It is a myth and Apple had never claimed of introducing a cheap iPhone. It is only faintly cheaper that the premium iPhone 5S, which sports a metal clad body unlike the iPhone 5C.
It is highly likely that the Google Nexus 5 will carry the same price like the introductory price of the Nexus 4. Though the Nexus 5’s release is not yet confirmed, it will expectedly be launched by November.
New press shots of Google Nexus 5 have leaked on-line. In the new leak Google Nexus 5 is seen in various colours. Twitter user EVLeaks, along the with release date of Android 4.4 KitKat phone release date, has leaked a new image of black and white model of Google Nexus 5.
Previously many images of Google Nexus 5 have been leaked on net which have sparked speculations regarding its October 22 release. However, the new rumoured release date of Google Nexus 5 is November 1 which means that Google Nexus 5 release will coincide with Apple iPad Air and Apple iPad Mini 2 release.
It has been reported that the LG Nexus 5 will come loaded with 2.3GHz Quad-core processor coupled with Adreno 330 graphics processor. It will also have a 5-inch display with 1920x1080p resolution. The phone is speculated to have 13 MP rear camera and 2GB RAM.
Google’s latest OS Android 4.4 KitKat is also rumored to release with the phone. The industry experts are expecting that the new Android will have a better interface and a totally new design. According to Timesofindia.com “Apart from having its own printing options, the new OS would also have a new wireless NFC payment system within its Settings. It would also have the option to save images as PDF files on the device.”
To have an edge above iOS 7 Google is also trying to bring various language commands to Android 4.4. So there is a possibility that Google Nexus 5 could accept command in languages other than English.
There are also reports that Google is planning to release the new version of Google Nexus 10. The new tablet is being developed by Asus and is likely to have a full HD screenTegra 4 processor, 2GB RAM and 32GB storage.
There have been so many rumours off late about the Google Nexus 5. From the technical specifications to probable price rates, many details could be found over the past few weeks if some reports are to be believed. However, there is no confirmation as far as the release date of Nexus 5 is concerned. The October 24 New York event was expected to launch the all new Google Nexus 5. However, this did not take place.
The Jellybean Android 4.3 powered LG Nexus 4 hit the online store on October 25. However, this was short lived as the device went missing from Google Play the same day. Google accidentally even released pictures and details of Nexus 5 on the play store. And if some Twitter tech tipsters are to be trusted, the release will be sooner than later. November 1 may be the end of all the waiting time.
The Nexus 5 will be powered by a 3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, have 2GB of RAM, all new Android 4.4 KitKat OS and LTE connectivity. 16- and 32-GB variants of Nexus 5 will be available. A brief display of the handset suggested that it will be charged at $349 for the 16GB variant.
Personally, we think Apple and Google are competing on the “Best Procrastinator” award. Even though the world thought Oct 24 to be Google’s reply to the launch of the new iDevices, all Nexus fans are still waiting for it – they got squat.
While various online portals claim Halloween (October 31st) to be the day of reckoning, sources quote a time-period between now till November first week, a hopeful window for all Nexus fans. Since co-branded KitKat 4.4 OS is to be launched alongside this model, online forums are sharing what looks to like a snapshot of the Nexus 5. This, along with other angled pix proclaim the Android OS along with a noticeable screen cum user-interface. Other speculations
