Hype on Google's upcoming smartphone dubbed as Nexus 5 (2015) aka Nexus 5 2nd Generation has gained momentum over the last few weeks with its release date drawing close. Leaked features may have caught the attention of gadget lovers, but Nexus phone users may look forward to small changes that can make big difference to the handset.
Google Nexus 5 (2015) is expected to be launched in October and November ahead of the holiday season. The tech giant has the tradition of releasing its devices, including Motorola Nexus 6, during this time of the year, so the upcoming smartphone too could follow the suit.
LG is supposed to make Nexus 5 (2015) under the codename "LG Bullhead," according to a report by Android Police.
Expectations on Google Nexus 5 (2015) are huge, following the stupendous success of Nexus 5 (2013) and the device may come with significant upgrades. However, users of Nexus devices might want Google to make a few minor changes, which may not be very appealing at the outset, but could change users' experience all together.
One of the biggest disappointments of Nexus 5 (2013) is its internal memory. Some may argue that 16GB and 32GB storage is enough, but most smartphone users might find it too less, as apps consume some memory and a few movies will take a chunk of space. Google can solve the issue of internal storage once and for all by providing a microSD card slot.
Going by the past trend, the search-engine giant may increase internal memory of its upcoming device, but is unlikely to introduce a microSD card slot. However, it looks like it is just a matter of time before Google introduces the feature to its devices.
Another small change that can bring big difference to Nexus device is a removable battery. The LG Nexus 5 (2013) has up to date features (at the time of release), which means more power consumption. Its 4.95-inch screen with 1,080x1,920 pixels (445 ppi pixel density) doesn't help either. One of the biggest disappointments of the device is its battery and many users had complained about it. Sadly, it has a non-removable battery, which means one has to bear with it until one is ready for an upgrade. So, it will come as a pleasant surprise if Google's upcoming device has a removable battery or one between 3,000 and 3,500mAh.
Google is tight-lipped on the features of the Google Nexus 5 (2015) until now, but several leaks have claimed that it would sport a 5.2-inch screen with 1,440x2,560 pixels, powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, run on Android M, come packed with 3GB RAM, house a 13mp main camera, 2mp front snapper and a 2,700mAh battery.
