We’re still waiting on an official announcement for the Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 but something very interesting happened yesterday. For a brief period of time yesterday, the Nexus 5 popped up on the Google Play Store in the US. It was removed shortly after but we did gain a few pieces of information from the little accident.
To begin with, we now know that the name of the new Nexus phone will indeed be the Nexus 5. There was some speculation that it would be the Nexus 4 (2013) but as you can see, it’s clearly listed as the Nexus 5. Pricing was also unveiled by the little mishap and as you can see, the price will start at $349 USD, likely for the 16GB model. For us here in Canada, we’ll likely need to tack on another $20-$30 dollars.
The last little tidbit we can gather from this fun accident is that the Nexus 5 may possibly bring some new sort of camera feature if the tag line is anything to go by. Beneath the Nexus 5 heading you see “capture the everyday and the epic in a fresh new ways.” What kind of fresh new ways will we be able to capture these epic moments? We’ll have to wait and see!
