64GB Nexus 5 could come with Nexus X

TKTechNews, Google is working with LG to bring a 64GB version of the Nexus 5 at the same time as the Nexus X launches. Nothing has been confirmed yet, but supposedly even at 64GB, the Nexus 5 would be priced even lower than the Nexus X. We don't know what the Nexus X will cost, but the assumption has been that it would be in the same $350-400 range as previous Nexus phones.According to
We'll have to wait and see on all of this though, because with all of the big announcements on the way from Samsung, Motorola, LG, HTC, and Apple, we're not expecting to hear anything from Google until around Halloween when the new Nexus devices appear in the Play Store.

I just want a high-end Nexus device at a reasonable device size... I understand these are vanilla, budget devices intended to get Android into developers hands on the cheap, but they're also generally the only Android devices that remain unscathed by carriers or manfacturers. There just aren't enough high end Droids out there with the option of a pure Google interface out of the box. And by that, I mean subsidized through carriers. Not $800 outright on Google Play, or which the M8 is your only choice...

Damn them if they do.... I battle with the limitations of the 32gb version on a regular basis. I would've bought a 64gb had it been available at launch.

Sell yours now then, they seem to be going for 250-300. And they said Android phones didn't have residual value...

I'm sure they can do a 64GB Nexus 5 at that price point of $350-$400. OnePlus has the 64GB at $350 so I think it can be done.

Consider the source of your report, TKTechNews, who is known for stealing and watermarking other journalists photos and stories, I hate to say that now, this story too, holds little water.

If they upgrade it I would love to buy the Nexus 5 again. Seems like most phones these days are going in the wrong direction when the Nexus 5 hit everything out of the park. s800, 2gb, OIS, wireless charging, 1080p, accurate colours and bright, compact dimensions, light, 8.9mm. Besides the weak vibration motor and strange battery drain it was the most clutch device ever. Slap the Sd 805 in there and a better motor and I'll buy it again. It would be the first time I ever rebought a device I sold.

Oh and the Nexus 10 factory has completely stopped. So unless there is a refresh, there is no device with 10 inches. I would buy a Nexus 10 with the same Exynos that is in the Galaxy Alpha in a heartbeat too. The Nexus 5 and Nexus 10 were by far the best devices this decade.

The only thing is Google has never kept around the previous year's model. That was Apple that did that, not Google. Every year there are "wishful" rumors. Last year it was "Oh, Google's going to keep the Nexus 4 in production but add LTE because '4.7 inch is perfect'". No, the phone Google releases that year is "perfect", in Google's eyes. Nexus 4 disappeared before the Nexus 5 arrived. This is one of those rumors I won't believe until I see it. The purpose of the Nexus smartphones is to influence design and to showcase the newest Android OS. Google doesn't need to keep the Nexus 5 around to do that. It would only distract attention from the Nexus 6 -- probably going to be called the Nexus X for legal reasons.
