The Nexus 5 features the following:

  • 5-inch display, 1920×1080 resolution (445 ppi)
  • 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor; 2GB RAM
  • 1.3MP front camera, 8MP rear camera
  • Dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac; Bluetooth 4.0 LE
  • 130 grams

All Nexus phones come factory unlocked so you can pop in your SIM card from any carrier, plus get the latest Android updates first from Google.

Last year’s Nexus 4 was available in 8GB and 16GB configurations for $299 and $349 respectively, but lacked LTE networking out of the box. The new smartphone is aimed to compete directly with Apple’s iPhone 5s.

Anyone thinking of switching to the other team? Black in 16GB has already sold out.
