The leaked images and tidbits about the Google Nexus 5 have been more than just a collection of drips in recent weeks. We now know the key specs for the device, what it will look like, and now, courtesy of a premature product listing on Google Play, we even know the price. Last night, Google briefly showed a product preview for the Nexus 5. It was quickly removed, but not before people managed to grab the image you see above and see that the Nexus 5 will cost $359 for a 16GB model.
Moving away from the 8GB models released last year, Google has shifted to a higher starting capacity for the Nexus 5. It also promises to "Capture the everyday and the epic in fresh new ways," according to the removed listing, hinting that we should see some improvements to the admittedly weak camera found in the Nexus 4.
Google does not have many surprises left in store for when the Nexus 5 becomes official. We already know that the phone will have a 1080p HD 4.95-inch display, a 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, NFC, a 2,300 mAh battery with inductive charging, an 8-megapixel and 1.3-megapixel camera combo, and 4G LTE support. With the addition of the price and previous leaks about Android 4.4, all that remains is a release date.via: Engadget
