The follow-up to the Google Nexus 4 is coming—and it’s shaping up to be a monster. While the search giant and lord of all things Android has yet to reveal any details on its newest Nexus, that hasn’t stopped the online rumor mill from churning away. The Nexus 4 was met with such wide demand upon launch that the Play Store couldn’t keep up with orders, and we’re likely to see history repeat itself if these rumors prove legitimate.
Whispers from around the Web hint that Google will place more emphasis on performance and camera quality rather than design, although we’ll have to wait on Google’s word to know for sure. You can also expect the latest Android 4.4 KitKat OS under the hood. Here’s a roundup of the most buzz-worthy and believable rumors and what they might tell us about the Nexus 5.
Just like its Nexus 4, Google is likely to give the Nexus 5 a competitive and attractive price. Recent reports have said that the Nexus 5 briefly appeared in the Google Play store priced at $349 for 16GB, which is the same price we saw for the Nexus 4 when it launched last year. The image that was paired with this product listing also hinted that the Nexus 5 could borrow some design cues from the Nexus 7 and sport a slimmer, sleeker form factor.
