There have been tons of rumors and leaks about Google’s upcoming Nexus 5 smartphone in recent weeks, and today we get claims of official details on pricing and new battery size options for the device. According to a report from Phonearena citing a tipster, the next-gen Nexus will come in 16GB and 32GB models for $299 and $399.
That compares to the $299 and $349 that the two models of the Nexus 4 debuted for, but Phonearena also claims that this time around Google will include a larger battery in the 32GB model:
With that in mind, we are told that the 16GB LG Nexus 5 will feature a 2300mAh battery and will be priced lock, stock and barrel for $299. The 32GB LG Nexus 5 will be powered by a 3000mAh cell and will be priced at $399. The Google Nexus 4 was $299 for the 8GB unlocked model when first launched, while the 16GB model was $349. Both of those units carried a 2100mAh cell.
The latest leaks of the device point to an approximately 5-inch, 442ppi display, a 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snadragon 800, 2GB of RAM, an 8MP rear camera, 1.2MP front camera, and a wireless charging system. The latest spec leaks noted a 2,300 mAh battery, but this is the first we’ve heard of the possibility of a larger battery in the higher capacity Nexus 5.
