Previous rumors about the release date of Google's Nexus 5 smartphone missed by a long shot, since the Internet search giant did not unveil this handset in mid-October as expected. Now the price and availability of the Android smartphone are still unknown, but notorious Twitter tipster evleaks revealed a clear image of the upcoming handset, its launch date and even its main specs.

According to these recent leaks (including a pre-registration section on WIND Mobile's Facebook page that appeared yesterday and was soon taken down), the Google Nexus 5 is manufactured by LG and comes with the following:

  • Processor: 2.3 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800
  • Memory/Storage: 2 GB RAM; 16/32 GB internal storage
  • Display: 4.95-inch Full HD multitouch with 445 ppi and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection
  • Cameras: 8 MP with OIS rear facing and 1.3 MP webcam 
  • Connectivity: dual band WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/nc, Bluetooth 4.0, micro USB, SlimPort
  • Operating system: Android 4.4 KitKat
  • Weight/Dimensions: 0.29 pounds; 2.72X5.43X0.34 inches
  • Battery: 2,300 mAh

Considering all the above, it seems Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 KitKat will be released really soon. If evleaks is right this will happen on November 1, so stay tuned for more.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
