With the launch of the Nexus 5 on the cards next month, we’re beginning to get a brief idea of what to expect, thanks mainly to the plethora of leaks. And a new leak has now suggested that the Nexus 5 might come with support for nano SIM cards. Nano SIM cards have been a standard on Apple devices since the iPhone 5 last year, so it’s not new to the market by any means.
This revelation comes from Ukrainian carrier Life which claims that it will provide nano SIM cards for its customers with smartphones like the iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, Nexus 5 or other Android 4.4 smartphones. That’s a little odd as the Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 aren’t official yet, but it should serve as confirmation as it is coming straight from the carrier.
The LG made Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 are due for an announcement in mid-October, so there’s still a couple of weeks left until anything goes official. It seems logical that the Nexus 5 would come with a nano SIM card and it wouldn’t surprise me if it becomes a standard with Android 4.4 as the Ukrainian carrier seems to suggest.
