If you keep up with our blog here TheNexus5.com, you’re probably well aware of the rumors about a new Nexus 5. While Google has yet to confirm or deny these rumors, there’s strong evidence suggesting that it’s looking to bring back the Nexus 5 this year. Unfortunately, we’ve yet to see any promotional material featuring this new generation Nexus 5 — up until now that is.
Google published a new video titled “Project Fi: Guide to Checking Data Usage” on its YouTube channel earlier this week, which many people are calling the first concrete evidence of a 2015 edition Nexus 5.
The 2013-2014 edition Nexus 5 was nothing short of perfect. Boasting a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of random access memory (RAM), 16/32GB of internal storage, an 8-megapixel primary camera, and the purest version of Google’s Android operating system, it was (and still is) a powerful handset. What really made the Nexus 5 stand out from a sea of competing devices, however, was its budget-friendly price tag of just $299 for the 16GB version and $349 for the 32GB version. Oh yeah, those prices do not require the user to sign up for an additional 2-year contract with his or her cell carrier.
But Google’s most recent flagship smartphone, the Nexus 6, failed in many of the areas where the Nexus 5 succeeded. Granted, the new Nexus 6 features a better processor, more RAM, a higher megapixel camera, and other goodies, its large size and hefty price tag have turned many loyal Nexus users away. The Nexus 6 costs $699/$749, which is nearly twice the amount of the 2013-2014 Nexus 5. Hopefully, Google will revert back to its roots with the new 2015 Nexus 5, making it affordable enough so that anyone can buy it without breaking into their savings account.
Did Google really publish a promotional video featuring the new 2015 Nexus 5? Well, it published some video, whether or not it’s the new Nexus 5, though, remains to be seen. Click the play button below to see for yourself.
The video above, assuming it’s authentic, reveals the step-by-step process for checking data usage on the upcoming 2015 Nexus 5. You simply go to Settings > Data Usage > and the amount of data you have used thus far will be listed to the right of “Cellular Data.”
