Google's Nexus 5 looks set to be one of the best value smartphones around.
Google are expected to unveil the Nexus 5 on October 14th and earlier this week we got full details of its specification - thanks to a leaked service documented. One thing it didn't reveal was the Nexus 5's price, but that's all changed thanks to new information being reported by Phonearena.
An anonymous tipster informed them that Google's Nexus 5 will be priced at $299 (16GB model) and $399 (32GB) model - that equates to £185 and £245 respectively in the UK. In the UK we should expect to pay a little more than our US cousins - for example, at launch the 8GB Nexus 4 cost $299 but in the UK we had to pay £239.
In light of this information 3G expects the Nexus 5 (16GB) to be priced at £239 with the 32GB model costing £299 - still great value given the smartphones high-end specification.
Google's Nexus 5 is rumoured to have a 4.95 inch touch-screen display (1920*1080 pixels) with it's power provided by a 2.3 GHz quad-core processor that is backed up by 2GB. It'll also pack an 8 mega-pixel camera, 4G LTE support and wireless-charging support.
Interestingly, this latest price-leak also suggests that the two different Nexus 5 models will have different size batteries. With the 16GB model having a 2,300 mAh battery and the 32GB model having a larger 3,000 mAh power-pack - which, presumably also increasing the smartphones weight.
As soon as we get more news about the Google Nexus 5 you'll be the first to know !
