We’ve already heard a lot of rumors and seen many Nexus 5 leak images, but today’s information is worth your attention. Latest Nexus 5 leak images show what will be the new Google device for the Canadian carrier Telus.
In general, there is nothing new about this handset. As it was earlier reported, in terms of design the Nexus 5 will have the volume rocker on the left hand side and the power button can be found on the right. On the top of the front panel, there will be a circular speaker as well as the front facing camera. Among the rest of Google Nexus specs we may highlight the following:
- Display: 5-inch Full HD display, 442 ppi (potentially 4.97-inch)
- Processor: 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snadragon 800
- RAM: 2GB
- Internal Storage: 16GB/32GB
- Cameras: 8MP rear + 1.2MP front
- Sensors: accelerometer, magnetometer, gyroscope, proximity, light, barometer, orientation
- Battery: 2300mAh (via FCC) and wireless charging
- Connectivity: LTE, NFC
As expected, the Nexus 5 is will be the first handset to come with Android 4.4 KitKat on board. On the leak image above you may see how Android 4.4 home screen will look like.
The notification bar is now transparent, all of the icons are white, the dock has been simplified and now you can find camera, Chrome, Hangouts, and Phone shortcuts there. In addition, Android 4.4 KitKat is expected to boast a transparent app drawer, meaning that now instead of the black background you’ll see your wallpaper. And finally, one of the features I’ve been waiting for is the addition of dots to indicate the general number of screens you’ve set up. This is the feature that appeared on iOS devices years ago. Now it’s high time for Android users to see how it works on their own.
The rest of Android 4.4 KtKat features include:
- New notification widgets
- Miracast updates
- Filmware availability to older phones
- New Gallery Visualisation
- Fragmentation changes (screen resizing)
- New API regarding animations
- Android default blue can be changed to other color schemes
