Unlike the Nexus 4, photos of the Nexus 5 haven’t leaked months before its release. I think Google has added a lot of security barriers this time to avoid getting it leaked. There are strong rumours that the Nexus 5 will be manufactured by Motorola and will be the first device to have Android 5.0 running on it.
The Nexus 4 hit shelves on November 2012, so there’s a high chance that the Nexus 5 is a few months away. It better not be released in 2014 because i’ve waited too long. Now that Nexus 5 rumours are surfacing I’m less inclined to get the Moto X, specially since it’s not stock android and doesn’t have inductive charging which I love on my Nexus 4.
More than anything I’m really hoping it comes with a good camera, the one on Moto X is just right. Nexus does not have a good history with phone cameras, I think the Galaxy Nexus was my favourite from the whole lot, even though it was only 5 MPs. I’m also hoping they don’t take the Samsung approach and launch a 5.0+ inch screen.
