Nexus 5 envisioning from dream team, all customizable

The Nexus 5 is a phone that’s coming in for a lot of attention right now and after the huge popularity of the Nexus 4 smartphone, many people are hoping for more big things from the Nexus 5. We’ve heard conflicting rumors of specs so far but to be frank at this stage it looks like nobody is really sure. While we wait we caught a look at an envisioning of the Nexus 5 from a dream team with every aspect customizable and thought it was interesting enough to share with readers while we wait for something more concrete about the real deal.

We’ll just update you with the latest we heard on the Nexus 5 which fitted with news some time ago from Google’s Senior VP of Engineering who said that future Nexus devices could have “insanely great cameras.” The newest source claimed that the camera of the Nexus 5 smartphone would be a 9-megapixel CCD camera but others were disappointed that these latest so-called leaked specs also showed no expandable storage again (the same as for the Nexus 4) and no full HD display. However of course as with all such leaks these details cannot be verified.

Back to today’s Nexus 5 look then and when accurate news about devices we’re really looking forward to is so thin on the ground we enjoy looking at concept designs as they can give us a great idea of what could be on offer. Recently we gave you a look at a Nexus 5 concept, which we thought looked pretty good and came with some imagined specs, which were not too over the top. Today though we’ve come across a new concept design for the Nexus 5 and we think the design of this one is even better, although the specs are indeed the stuff of dreams.

This Nexus 5 rendering comes from D. Saif and shows a really sleek device with miniscule bezels leaving the phone’s front as virtually all display with not a millimeter wasted. Many have speculated that the next Nexus pure vanilla Google Android phone will once again be produced by LG but Saif wastes no time pondering this and for his mockup has decided that this is dream team project between HTC, LG, Motorola, Sharp and Sony.

Listed specs for this dream Nexus 5 include Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie (okay so that one’s pretty realistic), with Ultra HD display, UltraPixel camera, Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU, 4GB of RAM, 256GB of internal storage and a 5000 mAh battery. The design is a collaboration between Sharp and LG, the camera by HTC and Sony and hardware customization by the Motorola X team. Finally it has been designed by Google and comes with a $299 price tag. A really interesting aspect of this concept Nexus 5 is that every aspect of the phone would be customizable putting control into the consumers hands. This means a choice of different megapixel cameras, different internal storage options, battery capacities and RAM.

We think this would be really appealing to most potential Nexus 5 customers as aspects of a smartphone that are important to one owner may not be as important to another owner. What are your thoughts on a completely customizable Nexus 5? Do you imagine that the above manufacturers might ever come together to produce a Google Nexus device?

    looks like a april fool article… lol..

  • the optimist

    it would be nice if you could choose an octa-core processor with that 256GB storage, and an 8GB RAM. Or something redonqulus lol. I would so get that.

  • vperl

    All I want in a NEXUS 5 PHONE is CDMA .
    THE rest is gravy.

      Why the hell would you want CDMA? SIM is so much more hassle-free.

    • jimv1983

      You will probably never see another CDMA Nexus phone again. GSM phones don’t really need any involvement from the carrier. CDMA phones require direct involvement and control from the carrier which means the carrier will want to be in charge of updates which we all know how bad that worked out for the Galaxy Nexus on Verizon and Sprint.

      • vperl

        Jimster, it is a secret. You are not on the NTK list .

        • jimv1983

          What’s a secret? What are you talking about? NTK list?

  • vperl

    The April fools are the ones who have time to write these stupid crapola articles. Get a reap job.

  • H.T.

    I’ll pay them an extra 200 dollars to the $299.99 price tag, that’s how bad I feel because I’m ripping them off. Sometimes, dreams are just that.

  • Jame

    That render looks ugly.

    I just want a thinner Nexus 4 with a bigger battery

    • jimv1983

      Ugly? Really? I think it looks great. Only problem is the bottom bezel is way to big. Make that bottom bezel the same size as the left and right bezel and they really have something. Really is too bad it’s fake.

  • jimv1983

    I wish that was real. I’d love to have a phone with a 5,000mAh battery. Then maybe a it would last a full day of heavy usage on a single change instead of about the 6 hours that most phones get today.

    On the official site try 0111111 it highlights in green

    I think common sense suggests a Nexus 5 will follow. It seems pretty clear that Google are going with a size based naming convention and the “phablet” seems to have a market so why not? Let’s wait to the next big Google conference and see…

    • jimv1983

      Sized based naming convention? Don’t you realize that is just a coincidence? The Nexus 4 wasn’t a 4″ phone. If the next Nexus phone is called the Nexus 5 it would be for the same reason the Nexus 4 got it’s name. The “Nexus 5″ will be the FIFTH Nexus phone.

      HTC Nexus One (First Nexus phone)
      Samsung Nexus S (Second Nexus phone)
      Samsung Galaxy Nexus (Third Nexus phone)
      LG Nexus 4 (Fourth Nexus phone)
      “Nexus 5″ (Fifth Nexus phone)

      Also, it is “Google IS….” not “Google ARE….”. Sorry but I just couldn’t help but say something. That mistake irritates me so much.

  • biz

    please no ultrapixel!

  • noway

    5000 mAH battery? You’ve got to be kidding me.

    • jimv1983

      Why? Too hard to believe that a phone might actually have a decent sized battery?

      • tenderloin shadow

        A 5000 math battery would make the phone huge. In fact all of these specs while they make me drool are completely unrealistic. 4 GB ram? 256 GB storage? Its a nice fairy tale but let’s move on to the real thing.

        • David Gabel

          Fast forward to now, where current, or soon to be released ( ~4 months from now) flagships are coming with 3GB of ram, and people can use 128GB MicroSD cards in their devices, along with phablets like the Note 3 packing 3,000+ mAh batteries. Still think it’s a fairy tale for such things to happen?
