Another day and another rumour for Google Nexus 5. Folks at PhoneArena
have been tipped by an anonymous tipster that Google Nexus 5 will not
have a full-HD screen. Instead the smartphone will pack in 4.5-inch 720p
It is noteworthy, that all the recently launched
flagships smartphones, be it the Samsung Galaxy S4, HTC One or Sony
Xperia Z, sport a 1080p display. So it does come as surprise that Google
for its next iteration of Nexus smartphone wants to stick with a 720p
PhoneArena further claims that LG will be making this
iteration of Google Nexus and 88 percent of front of the phone will be
taken up the display. Furthermore, Google Nexus 5 will have a mammoth
As suggested in the previous rumours, the
tipster claims that the Google Nexus 5 will come with Qualcomm
Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor that can clock speeds up to 1.5GHz.
The most interesting revelation in this leak is that the smartphone will
come with 9-megapixel CCD camera. This is interesting because most
smartphone cameras come with CMOS sensor. CMOS censors cost almost the
same as CCD sensor, but the former is faster in terms of processing
images and hence is deployed in most smartphones.
Even in the
past, there have been new reports regarding Google planning to do some
innovation in the camera of Google Nexus 5. This news report suggested
that Google Nexus 5 will come with a "triple camera sensor thing" along
with a Nikon branding.
As per the past rumours, Google Nexus 5
will allegedly come with 2GB of RAM and offer two internal storage
options - 8GB and 16GB. This smartphone will run on Android 5.0 or
Android Key Lime Pie, which is expected to be released by Google at
their I/O conference.
Google's current iteration of Nexus smartphone is made by the Korean smartphone maker LG.
