The end of the month is almost here, and still no LG Nexus 5 in sight. While we might not know exactly when the next Nexus will actually be unveiled, we do know quite a bit about what to expect from the device. For starters, the handset will allegedly be powered by a Snapdragon 800 CPU with 2GB of RAM. Other specs include a 4.95-inch Full HD display, 16 or 32GB storage and Android 4.4 KitKat.
Based on what we’ve seen with the Nexus 4, we also know that the handset will at least support GSM networks such as T-Mobile, AT&T and the various U.S. MVNOs out there.
What about CDMA networks in the United States? As it turns out, the handset might also be coming to Sprint. Word of the Sprint Nexus 5 has arrived to us via a Google+ message from @evleaks, which includes both an image of the Nexus 5 and the words “Coming to Sprint”.
Of course this is still just a rumor at this stage, and speculation is advised.
IF Sprint really is getting the Nexus 5, it’s still unclear whether they will sell the phone directly or if you’ll be able to buy a Sprint version via the Google Play store.
The new rumor also makes us wonder if Verizon might also finally be getting a new Nexus. After the disastrous way that Big Red handled the Galaxy Nexus it seems less likely that Google would be willing to work again with Verizon, but you never know. Either way, @evleaks certainly has our attention with this one.
For Sprint and Verizon customers, if the Nexus 5 comes to your network would you be interested in picking one up or not?
