Canadian mobile operator posts Google Nexus 5 specification
Canadian mobile operator Wind Mobile have posted the official specification of the Google Nexus 5 ahead of Fridays official unveiling. They posted the full Nexus 5 specification on the mobiles' pre-registration page and we imagine Google arn't going to be too pleased when they find out.
So now we know that the Google Nexus 5 will have a 4.95 touch-screen (1920*1080 pixels) giving it a pixels-per-inch rating of 445. And that it'll come pre-loaded with Android KitKat, so presumably the latest version of Google's Android platform will be unveiled alongside the smartphone later this week.
The dimensions of the Nexus 5 come in at 69.7 x 137.84 x 8.59mm and it weights just 130g. Packed inside the redesigned exterior is a 2.3 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor which is backed up by 2GB of RAM.
It'll be available with a choice of either 16 or 32GB of on-board memory and, just like the Nexus 4, it doesn't look like it'll support microSD cards. When it comes to the camera it has an 8 mega-pixel rear camera with OIS (optical image stabilisation) and a front-facing 1.3 mega-pixel camera for video calling.
The only thing the specs didn't reveal was the battery inside the smartphone and its cellular connectivity. Also currently unconfirmed are the the price and release date, but our information suggests that prices will start at £239 and it'll be available to buy the same day that it's unveiled (November 1st).
3G will bring you all the news from Google's launch event on Friday as it happens.
