Google Nexus 5 (2015) vs Nexus 5 (2013) – Top Features Regarding The Newest Phone


Google is still quiet regarding the upcoming Nexus 5 (2015) version. This upcoming device will be the second generation of Nexus 5 and the internet is already full of leaks about it.

According to the reports that have surfaced until now, the upcoming Nexus 5 (2015) will come with much superior features compared to the Nexus 5 device that was released two years ago.

Jamal Eason (Product manager of Android) made a statement in which he suggested that the new Google Nexus 5 handset will be released sometime in October-November 2015 and it’s expected to be come loaded with Android M, the new OS that Android will launch this fall.

The upcoming Nexus 5 (2015) will feature a 5.2inch screen that will support a resolution of 1440×2560 pixels. We remind you that the Nexus 5 (2013) has a smaller 4.95inch screen that supports a Full HD resolution of 1920×1080 pixels that gives a pixel density of 445ppi.

The Nexus 5 (2015) will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, while its predecessor, the Nexus 5 (2013), features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. As we’ve told you above, the Nexus 5 (2015) will run on Android M, while the Nexus 5 (2013) just received the Android 5.5.1 Lollipop update.

When it comes to memory, the Nexus 5 (2015) will most likely feature 3GB of RAM while the Nexus 5 (2013) features only 2GB of RAM. We also remind you that the Nexus (2013) was released with two variants of internal memory: 16/32GB but, unfortunately, there are no rumors regarding the internal memory that the Nexus 5 (2015) will support.

The Nexus 5 (2013) was released with a primary camera of 8MP with OIS (optical image stabilization), which is found on the rear side and the 1.3MP secondary camera was placed on the front side. The Nexus 5 (2015) is rumored to sport a primary camera of 13MP on the rear side and a 2MP secondary camera on the front side.

It seems that the battery of the new model hasn’t been as improved as we expected. The Nexus 5 (2015) will feature a non-removable 2700 mAh battery, which is only 400 mAh bigger than the one found on the Nexus 5 (2013).

Keep in mind that, until now, these features were not confirmed yet by Google and we should take them with a bit of salt. We believe that Google will come soon enough with some official information about the upcoming Nexus 5 (2015) in order to put a stop to all these rumors/leaks.
