Nexus 5 system info screenshots emerge, rehash top shelf specs and 12 GB user-available memory
posted by Daniel P. / Oct 08, 2013, 7:32 AM
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.

Nexus 4 (2013), Not 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) ...)

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

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?

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?
