No news came out yesterday about the LG Nexus 5 and now the rumour mill has pushed the release date back to October 31. We have heard several dates on the Nexus 5 arrival, but most have past without a glimmer of announcement.
The release date should be around the corner, we have seen enough evidence of Google preparing to launch the device that it is odd they have not said anything about the smartphone yet.
Between Googlers using it on campus to the Google Play store getting the Nexus 5 on the shop-front, it looks like Google is leak-teasing us, instead of simply slipping up with their hidden smartphone.
The cat is out of the bag on this one, we already know the LG Nexus 5 will come with the Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, 2400mAh battery, 16/32GB storage options, 8MP OIS CMOS camera and Android KitKat 4.4.
Google will apparently launch the device on the Google Play store off contract to begin with and other carriers will hop into the scene a few weeks after.
On the price part, Google will be bumping the Nexus 5 price up ever so slightly from its predecessor the Nexus 4. The base 16GB unit will be available for $349 off contract and the 32GB version will be $449 off contract, still a great deal.
We are not sure when and if an event will take place for the launch of KitKat and the Nexus 5. Google has been surprisingly quiet on the subject, even though we know almost everything about the new OS and smartphone.
Alongside the two new products, Google may launch the new Nexus 10 and the successor the Nexus Q. For those that don’t remember, the Nexus Q was Google’s failed TV project, but it may be revamped with gaming support.
