Nexus 5 system info screenshots emerge, rehash top shelf specs and 12 GB user-available memory

Nexus 5 system info screenshots emerge, rehash top shelf specs and 12 GB user-available memory
A couple of Android system Info app screenshots have been grabbed from a Google Nexus 5 running Android 4.4 KitKat again, listing the specs from the alleged source itself.

What the app confirms is a 2.3 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor with a blazing Adreno 330 GPU, and a 1080 x 1920 pixels Full HD display. The listing says 1080 x 1776 pixels, to be precise, indicating on-screen buttons will be present on the handset. Since 442ppi pixel density is also listed, the back-of-the-napkin calculation returns about a 5" display with no physical or capacitive keys underneath, or near the panel of the LG G2, on which the Google Nexus 5 is supposedly based.

We will be getting 2 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of internal memory with the basic Nexus 5 version, of which about 12 GB are user-available, with no microSD slot listed for a good measure. The camera resolution of 3264 x 2448 pixels shown returns an 8 MP module, which is likely to have optical image stabilization, with plenty of flash and focus modes listed, plus a number of color effects. Nothing really new, but allegedly the first phone-derived system info coming straight from the Nexus 5.

It's not official yet, so it's still called a Nexus 5.

I'm still 50/50 on this. Could easily go either way. But if it is Nexus 5, we'll see it stay as Nexus 5 for a while (Nexus 5 (2014) ...)

If it is a 5 inch phone, then calling it a nexus 4 wouldn't continue to make sense. It will probably called the Nexus 5 with each subsequent thereafter being named the same with the (20xx edition).

There is no reason for them to call it the Nexus 4 (2013). The only reason they did that with the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 is because the form factor didn't change. Since this is going to be the 5th iteration of the Nexus phone and it has a 5" screen, the logical assumption would be that they would call it the Nexus 5... imho

Form factor didn't change much here either. Nexus 4 has a 4.7" screen and the nexus 4 (2013) has a 4.96" screen. Only time will tell.

The nexus 4 came out in late 2012 and already has nearly a year on the market. The Nexus 5 will be out in a couple of weeks before they finalize the year

Are are going to be any pre-orders made available by google?

Google doesn't do pre-orders from what I recall. You just buy it when it's available and they'll give you an estimated ship time based on availability.

Not gonna happen. PA should not have posted that previous article. It was wrong. We have exactly 0 evidence to back that rumor up other than their anonymous tipster.

I'm not gonna open the nexus 4 I got sitting here...if the specs hold true ill be getting it. Camera is the deal breaker if its as good as listed...it's a go

16GB? Cmon Google, my Nexus S was 16GB, my Galaxy Nexus is 16GB, why not start at 32GB since you don't have expandable storage. You make progress in other areas, so why not internal storage?

Your galaxy s and GNEX didn't cost you $300 brand new either.

Why is there no mention of why it is maroon in the picture! There's different colors?

I want to like the new Nexus, but 12GB without expansion is a deal breaker.
If there is a 32GB with 28GB usable for $350 I MIGHT bite just for the price.
I got my niece the first Nexus 7 and was able to use the Stickmount app to expand her storage, If that is possible on the new Nexus 28GB usable will be hard to pass up @ $350

This phone "sounds" awesome BUT only 12gigs of useable storage + no expandable memory is a automatic deal breaker for me. After you download a few large apps and take a bunch of pics you're screwed. Cloud storage is WAY to expensive! I'll pass on this "pure bland experience"...

I agree... if there's no expandable storage option, there needs to be a 32GB model. I'm really hoping that this screen grab was taken from a 16GB version of the phone, with a 32GB version (and mayhaps a 64GB version... in the land of makebelieve) that will be available as well. If 16GB is the only option, I may have to go with the Moto X once MotoMaker is available on VZW.

just depends on how you use your phone. When I take pics, they upload to google+ in the bg, don't need em on the phone. I stream any music I want to hear, movies from netflix etc. honestly, i've been using this 16gb S4 without a single thought to storage space for several months. just checked,still have 6GB free despite tons of apps and never worrying about it.

So while I agree an SD card slot or 32GB model would be nice for some people, it really would make no difference at all to me. I guess google is assuming there are enough folks with usage patterns similar to mine that the 16gb model will sell?

16 isn't bad. I have 8 on my Nexus7 and that's not enough. I could def get by with 16 on my phone by using the cloud.

Can't forget they are trying to keep the price down as low as possible.
