Google has reportedly stopped manufacturing one of their most successful Android smartphones, Nexus 5.
A Techradar report said that device will be available for sale via Google Play Store by a few selected retailers up to first quarter of next year.
Nexus 5, the LG-owned smartphone, is available in 16 and 32GB variants and is counted among one of the most successful Android handsets available till date.
Powered by Android Kitkat 4.4, the Nexus 5 has already received the Android 5.0 Lollipop update. The phone measures at 69.17x137.84x8.59mm with a weight of just 130g. Sporting a 4.95-inch Full HD display at 445ppi, the Nexus 5 also features Corning Gorilla glass for added protection.
Featuring a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC the Nexus 5 features a 2.26GHz processor along with Adreno 330 GPU, clocked at 450MHz. The device comes coupled with 2GB of RAM and available in two in-built memory variants.
