Google Nexus 5 price to be half that of iPhone 5S reports claim

With Google Nexus 5 rumours hitting fever pitch, latest reports have suggested that the Google Nexus 5 price will be half that of Apple’s flagship iPhone 5S.

While last year’s Google Nexus 4 offering having grabbed consumer’s attentions with its premium array of innards and minimalist price tag, it looks like the Google Nexus 5 will follow suit, with latest reports claiming the phone will be equally friendly on the wallet.

Citing “a source familiar with Google,” latest reports have hinted that the Google Nexus 5 will be “half the price” of the iPhone 5S, a phone which costs between £549 and £709 depending on spec. With the Google Nexus 4 having set wannabe owners back just £279 with 16GB of internal storage, it is believed the follow-on handset will feature a similar price.

With a raft of Google Nexus 5 rumours having done the rounds in recent weeks, it has been suggested that the eagerly awaited Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One rival will land as the first phone to come packing the recently announced Android 4.4 KitKat OS. A Google Nexus 5 release date has been mooted for later this month.

Leaked Google Nexus 5 specs have suggested that the handset will run an array of innards similar to that LG G2, with the South Korean company believed to have been handed manufacturing duties for the phone.

With a 5.2-inch edge-to-edge Full HD display having been tipped for inclusion, leaked Google Nexus 5 benchmarks have suggested that the phone will be paralleled on power only by the iPhone 5S, eclipsing all Android based devices that have preceded it.

Further Google Nexus 5 specs have been tipped to include a 13-megapixel rear-mounted camera and wireless charging capabilities.
