Daily dose of Nexus 5 rumors: announcement tomorrow, release date November 1st, more images
The Nexus 5 has been all the rage in recent days and weeks with wild speculations about its release date, but now we seem to finally have near-perfect clarity. After hitting retailers across the globe, now a Shanghai store claims the Nexus 5 will (finally) get officially announced by Google tomorrow, on October 31st. The release date for the store is expected to be right after that on November 1st.

This corroborates all credible sources with inside information that have been claiming an October 31st release in the last month or so, despite conflicting rumors. Again, we have no inside information of our own to confirm or deny this, but it seems that all people in the know have given their nod and the much awaited release date will be tomorrow.

So what can we expect? There is almost nothing we don’t know about the Nexus 5, we are still hoping to see it on Verizon Wireless, but apart from that the spec puzzle has been leaked and solved by various sources including FCC filings, carrier listings and so on.

Nexus 5 specifications:


Display 4.95-inch Full HD display, 442 ppi (potentially 4.97-inch)
Dimensions137.84 x 69.17 x 8.59 mm (5.42 x 2.72 x 0.34 inches)
Processor2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 (MSM8974)
GPUAdreno 330
RAM2GB
Internal Storage 16GB or 32GB
Camera 8MP auto-focus camera with OIS
Front Camera1.3MP
Sensorsaccelerometer, magnetometer, gyroscope, proximity, light, barometer, orientation
Battery2300mAh with support for wireless charging
OtherMultiple LTE bands - support for Verizon (not confirmed), AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile; Pentaband HSPA+ (works across the globe), NFC, Nexus 7-like design, ceramic physical buttons

The Nexus 5 price is said to be $349 for the basic 16GB model, and there will be a 32GB version as well. The handset should be available in black and white from the get-go.

Please stop with the BS Verizon support. It has been well reported by ever other reputable tech news site that there is no Verizon support. Go look at the FCC filings. No Verizon bands. Stop outright lying to your readers. You know there is no band 13 in that phone. Just the BS.

There is. This is a previous leak that was from WindMobile. It's full of typos and was clearly not ready to be seen by anyone. Not sure why PA has decided to repost it again with the typos.
That "nc" in the Wi-Fi is supposed to be ac. Just a typo.

How boring, we know everything about the phone before it's even introduced to us. Maybe they should dial back on all these controlled leaks and leave some room for build up and anticipation. All we have to look forward to now is finding out what the improvements and changes are in the new Android version.

"leave some room for build up and anticipation"? Haven't you seen the huge build up of people going crazy in anticipation? I've never seen so many adults antsy like 7 year olds on Christmas morning. People are reading every one of these rumor stories hoping to find out release dates so they can be the in the first batch of orders. I think Google is doing well at building up hype without spending a bunch on advertising.

If phone has OIS , that means phone has slow shutter speeds ?

thx . I interested in photography. I am an amateur now. I read somewhere that OIS is very efficent when slow shutter speeds used.

23. NexusPhan (Posts: 463; Member since: 11 Jul 2013)


I'm not sure. I've never used it before. That article used a bunch of different shutter speeds in a camera that uses OIS. It sounded liked that OIS did not affect shutter speed settings.

34. Deicide (Posts: 43; Member since: 02 Jul 2011)


OIS just helps when you have to use slow shutter speeds in that it cancels out the vibrations from your hands. It's a good thing for night time photography and if you have heavy lenses.

Can Nexus 5 record videos at 120 fps for 720p ? Can we have slow motion ?
What extra features does it have ?
or is it just a Spec beast and fresh android phone ?

What about Nexus 10?

21. Taters (Posts: 2918; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)


Google probably couldn't justify it. I mean the Nexus 10 was 2560 x 1600, had the latest A15 chip set, 9000 mah battery, all at 8.9 mm thin, and it was only $399 and it still sold like s**t.

How do we know its really 8.59 mm? the phone looks thicker than the s3? and the s3 is 8.6 mm.. not that im complaining, it would be really nice indeed!!!

33. Taters (Posts: 2918; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)


The GS3 has more tapered surfaces than flat ones. At it's thickest point, which is a very minor surface area of the phone, it is 8.9mm but everywhere else it's probably closer to 7.9mm. This is exactly why the thickness rating can be subjective.

Either way, 8.6mm is thin enough for me.

The 9.3 on the HTC One and 10.7 on the lumia 920 is bordering on too thick for my tastes though.

Release date on or one day after the announcement? All announcements should be like that.

I can't get past the fact that it does not have an uSD card slot. Somebody, please!! convince me that I don't need it.

You don't need it!! Just get the 32 GB version and you should be fine.

I would rather have a bigger battery if possible.

If you're always on wifi or 4g just keep it in the cloud. For the times you're not, buy a USB otg cable and keep your movies and biggest files on a flash drive.

Do you think 2300mAh battery is sufficient for a day of moderate use?
I'm trying to decide between N5 and LG G2.
Thank you

Yes that is plenty! I have the Nexus 4 and I go a whole day with moderate use with about 20-30% battery life by the time I go to sleep at night. I unplug it at around 7am and don't go to charge it again until 10pm and have some charge left. Since this is a newer version I would think the Nexus 5 would have even better battery life.

Snapdrgaon 800 should be a lot more power efficient than the S4 pro. Agree entirely. It's only a matter of the screen. 5" 1080P is a lot of pixels to push. I hope LG used some high quality, efficient screens and that the Adreno 330 is efficient enough to push those pixels without needs to jack up the clock speed. I'm confident that Google got it right.

depends on what Google has done to optimize battery life with 4.4

OMG Please let this be true. So tired of the anticipation, the several times a day leaks and there still not being any official word from El Goog.

It's a 8mp OIS camera which should be comparable to the LG G2's camera. So I'd say the camera should be pretty good. Definitely a lot better than the Nexus 4's camera module.

More hype , no Google event scheduled unless it very NDA . Or unless Google decides trick or treat- most likely a trick rather than a treat. None of the other dates so far have materialized in spite the quality of the leaks .I'm not sitting and holding my breath waiting .

The retailers have stocks of Nexus 5's, Google play has stocks so they are waiting for?Numerology, astrology, alien abduction of the KitKat by IOS, a Blackberry message or?

Hmmm now the question is this: Note 3 or Nexus 5? Kinda of weird comparison but i'm stuck with which one to get. I'm coming from an aging iphone 4 :)
