Two days ago Motorola announced its new Moto X Android smartphone, which has had mixed reactions over the price for the specifications that comes with it. Some say it is too expensive with some saying if you take the pricing out of the equation it seems to be a nice looking decently featured smartphone. So what is happening with the Nexus 5 now?
The Nexus 4 was such a success outselling across the board, even the Google Play Store sold out in no time at all, but consumers are now waiting for the Nexus 5 to be announced. This is where we move onto the Nexus 5 worries after Moto X release, Google has its hands in deep with the new Moto X and they have been supervising the smartphone that is the first to be fully assembled in USA.
Does this mean the Nexus 5 will be put on the back burner now for a while until the Moto X has made its stamp with sales, or does it mean no Nexus 5 will ever release? Many readers are asking this question.
One of our readers on a previous article said, “I don’t think were getting a Nexus 5, the Moto X is out soon and that’s Google’s first test bench to design and build in house without a separate manufacture.” Well, the Moto X has been unveiled and it did have Google supervising and it was assembled in USA, so our reader was correct.
The Motorola Moto X was unveiled and it will feature a 4.7-inch AMOLED display with pixel density of 316 ppi, 2MP front facing camera, 10-megapixel camera featuring ClearPixel technology, new Gorilla Glass aka Magic Glass with rounded edges, 720p resolution, full RGB matrix, HD videos at 30fps, it also comes with 1080p video, 2GB of RAM, dual core 1.7GHz Krait Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU, Adreno 320 GPU, 2200mAh battery. It runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and much more, please read them here.
We are hoping Google still releases the Nexus 5, which we believe will be by LG, the Nexus 7 2 has the Asus name on board just like they did on the first Nexus 7, so it stands to reason LG will be on the Nexus 5. We have to agree with a few of our readers who are a little worried about the Nexus 5 release, if Google do decide to unveil it we cannot see it being anytime soon.
Why would Google want to release the Nexus 5 so close to the Motorola Moto X, it would not make any sense at all. Some of the rumored Nexus 5 specs are all over the place at the moment, but some say it could come featuring a 5 to 5.2-inch Full HD screen display, 3300 mAh battery even though we have seen a few times it saying 2700, 13 MP rear camera, 2.3 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor with 3 GB of LPDDR3 RAM, Android 4.3 even though by the time it releases we might and Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie by then, 16/32/64GB storage options, 4G/LTE connectivity, all of these are just rumors please remember that.
Do you think the Nexus 5 will release by the end of 2013 now that the Moto X is here?
