RumorTT: Nexus 5 to be priced incredibly well, at just $299

The Nexus 4 was one of the best priced smartphones when it was released, and it looks like Google wants to continue this tradition with its upcoming Nexus 5 smartphone. PhoneArena has an unnamed source who says that the Nexus 5 will start from $299... without any subsidies.

Yes, $299. Of course, this could be way off the mark, but I don't think we'll see a price too far from this. The report does state that unlike its predecessor, the Nexus 5 will come in a couple of different varieties. The first of which would feature 16GB of on-board flash storage and a 2,300mAh battery at $299.


The second model, which will become my new daily driver, would be $399 and feature 32GB of storage and a bumped up, and much-needed 3,000mAh battery. This is on top of the base specs that we've heard about: Qualcomm's Snapdragon 800 SoC - a 2.3GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with OIS (optical image stabilization), a 1.3-megapixel front-facing snapper, inductive charging support, NFC and of course, the star of the show: Android 4.4 KitKat.
