Nexus 5 render surfaces, teased by case-maker Spigen

Nexus 5 render surfaces, teased by case-maker Spigen
The Nexus 5 is about to arrive soon, but while we still don’t know the official release date, we are constantly bombarded with an onslaught of rumors, leaks and images. This one is particularly juice - it’s a high-res render from case-maker Spigen that shows the Nexus 5 in all of its glory.

You get to see the large camera with single LED flash, the 3.5mm headset jack on top, the volume rocker. All things we have seen before, and by now you should probably know everything about the Nexus 5 - its service manual has leaked out showing it’s got an 8-megapixel camera supporting optical image stabilization. The handset is also expected to feature the latest Snapdragon 800 chip with 2GB of RAM and Adreno 330 graphics, pretty much top shelf specs right now.

Its key feature, though, should be its low price. Google is expected to start selling the Nexus 5 at $300 off contract, a price that’s half that of flagships like the iPhone 5s or Galaxy Note 3, selling for over $650. “Where will you be when the revolution begins?”, Spigen tweeted along with the image. If true, maintaining that low price would indeed be a small revolution, don’t you think?

Where will I be? Spamming the "Buy now" button on Google Play when this is released, that's where!

Nexus 5 32GB + T-Mobile $70 plan is the way to go.

Or their Internet-only $30/5GB/mo plan like I have. I don't know if they still offer the plan or not, but people keep freaking out when I tell them about it. 100 voice minutes is still way more than I need. Who uses phones to make phonecalls? :)

probably better than the Nexus 4 .. But I'm pretty sure that they won't make some really awesome camera because that may interfere in some partner sells .. like Galaxy S4, LG G2, HTC One, Sony Z1 .. Just thinking ..

With USB OTG support returning, it would be a compromise good enough to justify the price tag. I can't wait, even though I'm broke!

Question: Does anyone know if this phone will work well with MetroPCS since they have merged with T-Mobile?

I saw some pictures leaked from the Nexus 5 and I didn't like the texture that it seems to be .. something rubbered. I don't know how the touch feels, but the nexus back pictures leaked are ugly.. IMHO

With Usb OTG on this device, I can accept it without expandable memory..

It already makes note3 rubbish even before it is released, mainly because the software is clean and DAT UPDATE SUPPORT!

I don't see a large camera. I see a large design piece around the camera lens though.

Does anybody notice the "Nexus 5" on the screen behind!? That's means it's "Nexus 5" not "Nexus 4 (2013)" Right?
