Google Nexus 5 Specification

One of the most highly anticipated new smartphones hitting the market in October 2013 is the Google Nexus 5, which has been codenamed “Hammerhead” according to GFXBench data. After the success of the Nexus 4, this device promises to make quite a splash. It is said to be made by South Korean tech company LG. The phone will be available through multiple wireless carriers and is an LTE capable device that can connect to the fastest network speeds. It is worth looking into all the purported Google Nexus 5 specs.

The Google Nexus 5 will be available with internal storage amount choices of 16GB and 32GB. There is no microSD slot for additional expansion due to the design being exceptionally thin. The IPS Plus display measures in at five inches and has an HD resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels and a 441 pixel per inch screen density.

The smartphone will be the first to run on Android’s upcoming brand new 4.4 Kit Kat operating system and has 3GB of RAM. That plus a quad-core 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor should provide more than enough power to the device so that you can browse the Internet, stream content, play high tech games and watch television on it without issue. You can also look forward to a 13 megapixel camera that captures high quality photos and doubles as a camcorder that can snag 1080 pixel video at 30 frames per second. This primary rear-facing camera includes autofocus and LED Flash. There is also a secondary front-facing camera that is great for engaging in video chats on VoIP apps such as Skype.

As is the custom of most smartphones these days, the LG Google Nexus 5 includes a micro USB port for charging and syncing. The phone will be available in color choices of black or white and utilizes the standard Android browser HTML5. You can also look forward to a non-removable Li-Po 2300 mAh battery that should get you through at least a full day’s worth of usage, plenty of Google goodies in the form of preloaded apps and noise cancellation so that you can hear the individual on the other end while you are engaged in calls.

Additional Google Nexus 5 specs are that graphics will appear in HD quality thanks to the Adreno 330 graphics processor that is included in it. As it will have the new Kit Kat operating system, it remains to be seen whether it will be upgradable to the eventually 5.0 Android. We’ll let you speculate on the next dessert that starts with “L”.

    2300mAh battery? I thought it was 3000 like the LG G2? Other than that the specs look really beefy especially with that fast processor and 3 gigs of ram! Can’t wait to get my hands on this beast of a phone!

    “and a 441 pixel per inch screen density.”

    That article just described my dream phone…sans the battery. I just don’t see how any top brass engineer at Google or LG could allow such a pinnacle of mobile technology to be built with a non-removable 2,300mAH battery – it just doesn’t square.

      I agree with you when it comes to the battery choice. All the specs are great except for the battery, or KitKat is very power efficient. It doesn’t add up. Guess we’ll have to wait and see…

    Li-Po battery vs Li-Ion?

    Li-Po has a few advantages over Li-Ion:
    (1) lighter weight
    (2) slightly higher energy densities (depending on the formulation you’re using)
    (3) crash resistant–impact shock doesn’t cause it to lose stability/efficiency as quickly as Li-Ion will.
