The upcoming Google's smartphone, Nexus 5 (2015) aka Nexus 5 2nd Generation, has become the cynosure of all eyes. If reports are anything to go by, prospective buyers of the device can expect good features at an affordable price.

Google Nexus fans, who didn't buy Nexus 6 just for its 6-inch screen, have a good reason to be happy. The upcoming Nexus 5 (2015) is expected to have a display with 1440 x 2560 pixels, which means it will have a better display than the Nexus 6. According to some reports, it is expected to have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, Android 6.0 Marshmallow, 3 GB RAM, 13 MP Sony IMX278 sensor with an OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) camera, 2 MP secondary snapper, and non-removable 2,300 mAh battery under the hoods.

A report by Gizmo China has claimed that the device will come with 64 GB internal memory, 4 GB RAM, 13 MP main camera, 4 MP front snapper, 3,180 mAh battery, NFC, Bluetooth 4.2 and USB Type-C connector. It is also expected to have a fingerprint sensor and Android Pay.

Interestingly, the render of Nexus 5 (2015) leaked by Steve Hammerstoffer aka @onleaks shows a large protruding camera with an LED flash and a fingerprint scanner on the back. 

However, nothing is confirmed as we are yet to hear from Google officially.

Prospective buyers of Nexus 5 (2015) can expect it to come with an affordable price. While the 32GB version of Nexus 6 was priced at $649, the 64GB version costs $699. The pricing had invited criticism from consumers. Now, Geeksnack has claimed that the new device will be priced under $500.

According to Korean website Post (via GforGames), Google is expected to release Nexus 5 (2015) on 29 September.
