Nexus 5 to be more compact, skip the 1080p screen and focus on camera instead?

The Nexus 5, the supposed name for the next-generation Nexus smartphone by Google, might be a device totally different than the rest of the high-end Androids…

Depends when they are planning to release it. A summer release will make the Nexus 5 relevant, but a fall-winter release? Snapdragon 800 makes more sense in that case.

nice , 4.5 with on screen buttons that mean only 4.3 is usable , the compactness is always a plus but hope its 4.7 screen.and please a 32GB version . if you want to sell it like hot cakes.

Any yet to be announced device should include at least 8 cores and at least 16MP cameras, else it would just be just not competitive by the time it comes out.

"Make the device good, regardless of specs" seems to be a pretty competitive strategy for our favorite fruit company.

Leave the 8-core and 16MP garbage to the cave trolls arguing over tech-peen.

Strange.
I'd think that the Nexus 5 would have a 5 inch screen.. . Right?

4.5" would be perfect; hope it's light weight too.

Sound right because If you need bigger screen use a phablet
I will go for better truly HDR camera instead of 1080 screen resolution
What do you need such as high end screen for? If the phone can't take clear pictures or videos

The most fake rumors I ever seen. 100% fake!

This spec more likely next iPhone, definitely not Nexus 5.

It stands no chance against the competition. Supply chain issues. Screen quality issues. Camera issues..etc

I couldn't careless for the 1080p displays, i am sold the moment i heard about 2800 mAh battery and the snapdragon 600. Never really cared much about the camera department in smartphones but it is great to hear about an improvent.

Clearly fake, the 'tipster' coming with this rumour obviously doesn't like big screen 1080p phones (like the majority on here) and thinks that the S800 is too powerful for a phone and destined only for a tablet, eg: small minded thinker appropriating specs that suit him and others with the same mindset. Can see this from a mile off, unless Google or the Android team give you leaked info fast forward 6-8 months from now, it's pretty much BS.
