“Oh My God! This looks amazing!!!” This is exactly what we say when we check out the leaks and rumors rounding up on the soon to be released Nexus! Since Google released the Android 4.4 KitKat introductory video, the rumors of the new Nexus has been coming from all over the world. According to the rumor mill, it is said that the Next Nexus might be called as the Nexus 5 and the code name of the device is “HammerHead” which is pretty cool.

From these set of rumors we are pretty sure that this is the next Nexus since various sources are converging towards the same kind of device.

From the leaks, the Specs of the Nexus 5 are said found to be:

  • Snapdragon 800 chipset with four 2.3GHz Krait 400 cores
  • 4.96-inch screen of indeterminate quality
  • 2300mAh battery
  • NFC
  • WIFI dual-band 802.11 b/g/n/ac
  • 7-band LTE
  • Adreno 330 GPU
  • GFXBench reports the screen resolution as  1794 x 1080 but we expect it to be 1920 x 1080

If Google follows the previous years’s schedule, we will probably see the Nexus 5 with Android Kitkat 4.4 on top of it by October end or by  start of November.

Here I provide you will all the leaks and rumors of Nexus 5 till date!

1.)  On Sept 3rd when the KitKat unveiling video was posted by Google in YouTube, they accidentally revealed the Next Nexus. To make that even more suspicious and plausible, they made the video private which made everyone believe that, that is the next Nexus which accidentally got into the frame. But engadget has a copy of it and you can have a look:

2.)  In a bar, a Google employee left his phone for charging without any supervision. A guy in the bar took a shot and video of it .Unfortunately the phone was locked and we were not able to get the taste of KitKat 4.4. You can even see the new boot animation in the following video.

3) Then came out two leaked screen shots of Messaging and Phone apps interface under KitKat 4.4.This time in a Nexus 4 device. From this we can pretty much guess that, the notification bar is adaptable to the app that we are on. This feature will get amazing response and people will come up with innovative ideas for sure.

4) An alleged press shot has been leaked which has confirmed the Nexus 5 exterior.

5)The fully assembled Nexus 5 pictures have been found out by TheVerge from the FCC filings.

6)  Nexus 5 benchmarks: Even before the release of the phone, GFX bench scores for the nexus 5 has been leaked by tapscape and it looks like the Nexus 5 out performs the Galaxy S4 and LG G2 easily and matches with the IPhone 5s. It looks like the next Nexus is a graphic power house.

So, these were the rumors surrounding the new Nexus. Nexus 4 was a big hit due to a very competitive price point. If Google can release the new Nexus at a similar price then this can easily be a hit too. We don’t think at that price point any phone like Galaxy Note 3, or Galaxy S4 and even LG’s own G2 stand a chance.

We will try to cover all the leaks and keep you updated. Do leave your comments and tell us what you think. Ofcourse, keep reading the blog.
