Google’s New Nexus 5 Smartphone Set for An October Release?

Nexus 5

After much speculation, many sources have been said to believe the new Nexus 5 smartphone by Google will be released at the end of this month. The widely anticipated upgrade to the Nexus 4 is expected to directly compete against Apple’s iPhone 5s when released in October, with its impressive technical spec and much more affordable price tag rumoured to be half of that of Apple’s newest model.

Expected to be made by South Korean tech company, LG, the Nexus 5 will most probably be ran using Androids upcoming OS update, KitKat v4.4. Leaked images show the Nexus 5 will not stray too far from its predecessor as some similarities can be seen in its exterior design, with the difference between the two models most visible through the internal upgrade of the Nexus 5. Said to be equipped with a new quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, Google’s new smartphone is likely to be much faster and smoother than before when browsing the internet, streaming content or gaming due to its increased power. With talk of both a 16GB and 32GB model being released, the Nexus 5 is suggested to benefit from improved storage capacity and an increased memory of 3GB RAM.

Additional spec rumours propose the Nexus 5 will appear with an IPS 5 inch touchscreen display, harbouring a HD resolution with a high pixel density. Recent updates suggest the Nexus 5 will possess an incredibly impressive camera that may use a MEMS (microelectromechanical) system allowing it to shoot first, refocusing photos after they have been captured. Incorporating MEMS technology into the Nexus 5 enables users to capture the same scene at different focuses with the ability to refocus at a later point if need be.

With exciting features and specifications still only a possibility, many are eager for Google to confirm and launch the Nexus 5. As many sources are now pointing to an unveiling October, the much awaited smartphone may, before we know it, be in reach.
