Google has unveiled a new phone “Nexus 5”. The Nexus 5 device on the horizon, it is likely that the current Nexus 5 could see some more price drops in the near future, which could make it even better value for money. The Nexus 5’s been updated with the very latest software and it now boasts Android 5.0 Lollipop.
For what it is worth, the site claims the LG-made new Nexus 5 has a 5.2in full-HD P-OLED screen, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 620 processor, up to 4GB of DDR3 RAM, up to 64GB of storage, a 3180mAh battery, a Media-Tek connectivity chipset, front-facing speakers, a rear power button with integrated fingerprint scanner, 13 and 4 megapixel cameras and USB Type-C with Quick-Charge 2.0. The Nexus 5 will allegedly have an aluminium frame with chamfered edges and a plastic rear cover.
Google’s most unexciting phone launched yet. Surely, it had the brand new Lollipop OS and some powerful hardware inside, but for many customers the 5.96in Quad HD display was simply too big, while the £499 price no longer offered such brilliant value as did the previous Nexus 5 and Nexus 4.
Google has noticed the difference in its Quarter 1 2015 earnings call, too. While takings were up 23 percent YOY from Google Play, revenue was down 3% compared to the previous quarter, and the Nexus 6 had not been nearly as successful as previous Nexus devices. It is also possible that the 2014 Google phone was simply priced too high to garner the same kind of mass appeal as did the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5. the Nexus 5 is still a lean, mean Android machine, beyond the reach of OEM embroidery and carrier bloatware.
New Nexus 5 will offer a metal body for the design and the screen size will increase to 5.7in. Like many of the top phones around at the moment there will be a Quad HD resolution 1440 x 2560 resulting in a pixel density of 515-ppi. Other specifications contain a fingerprint scanner and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor.
If Google opts to work with LG once again, we could very well see another Quad HD display, as was seen on the Motorola-made Nexus 6.
