Au revoir, Nexus 5! Google is no longer officially selling its 2013 champion

The end of an era has come - Google has officially stopped selling the Nexus 5 through its new Google Store (the former Devices section in the Play Store). Despite that "some inventory of Nexus 5 still exists (with our retail and carrier partners)", Google's "focus is on the Nexus 6 at this time", a Google spokeperson told The Verge. 

As we had heard late list year, Google was to sell its 2013 LG-made flagship throughout Q1 2015. The quarter is about to end soon and Mountain View has seemingly done what it had promised. Fortunately, you can still get a new Google Nexus 5 from a majority of online retailers and brick and mortar stores.

The Google Nexus 5 was made by LG and broke cover in late 2013, donning a 1080p display, a Snapdragon 800 MSM8974 chipset, 2GB of RAM, an 8MP rear camera, and a 2,300mAh juicer at the back. All of this was garnered with an affordable price tag. With a PhoneArena rating of 9.5, the Nexus 5 is undoubtedly one of the best stock Android champs Google has ever sold.
