The excitement over the Nexus 5 is understandable, as the device is the first Nexus mobile device to feature a 5-inch full-HD screen. Other hardware on the device will also be high-end, which includes the likes of a Snapdragon 800 SoC that comes with a 2.3 GHz quad-core Krait 400 CPU and Adreno 330 GPU. The Snapdragon 800 that will be used in the device is the higher binned variant, and will come with a CPU clock of 2.3 GHz and a GPU clock of 500 MHz, both being a 100 MHz higher than the lower binned version of the SoC.
The Nexus 5 will also come with 2 GB RAM, LTE connectivity and a 2,300 mAh battery. The device will likely come in two storage variations of 16 GB and 32 GB, with the 16 GB costing $349 and the 32 GB costing $399. The Nexus 5 will be the first device that launches with Android 4.4 KitKat on-board.
