Google Unveils Nexus 5

nxsOn Thursday Google released the Nexus 5 developed by LG that is the slimmest and fastest Nexus phone ever made.

Nexus 5 operates on Google’s newest Android mobile operating software called Kit-Kat and comes in black or white.

The phone is equipped with a full HD resolution display (1920 x 1080) that is nearly 5 inches wide (4.95 inch to be precise) and uses Corning Gorilla Glass 3.

Running on a lightning fast chip, Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 (SoC), at 2.3 GHz with 2 GB of RAM, the Nexus 5 connects using 4G/LTE and ultrafast dual band Wi-Fi.

The Nexus 5 has an 8 megapixel rear facing camera sensor with optical image stabilization to eliminate blurry photos and a new HDR camera feature. There is also a 1.3 megapixel front facing webcam.

The Nexus 5 is built with  2300 mAh battery that covers 17 hours of talk time, Internet use time up to 8.5 hours on Wi-Fi,  and up to 7 hours on LTE. Wireless charging is built in. Bluetooth 4.0 is included.

Nexus 5 comes with 16 GB or 32 GB of memory priced at $349 USD and $399 USD without a contract.

The new phone can be purchased today at Google Play store or else before the holidays at Best Buy, Radio Shack, and Amazon.

T-Mobile, and Sprint will be selling Nexus 5 in the coming weeks. Google has hinted that Nexus 5 is capable of running on AT&T’s network but the phone is not available for sale at AT&T.

On November 8th Sprint will begin carrying the Nexus 5 with a starting price of $ 150.00 after rebates and a 2 year contract. T-Mobile hasn’t announced their pricing plan.

Verizon won’t be carrying the Nexus 5

Nexus 5 is available in the U.S., Canada, Australia, U.K., France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, Spain, and India in the near future.

* Update- the section about the Nexus 5 and AT & T was updated on this post at 10:25 am EST. The original post stated the Nexus 5 could connect to AT&T (true statement) which could mean in the future that the phone will be sold at AT&T in the future (but there is no confirmation of this as of today)  so it was revised.
