Google Nexus 5 specifications and hands on video

The Nexus series has always been the thing to look forward to for an Android enthusiast for two reasons. First, a new Nexus device always gets unveiled with a new version of Android and secondly includes cutting edge hardware running vanilla Android which gets updates as soon as they are released by Google.

It is October 2013 and time for the next in the series. Towards the end of October we will be seeing the unveiling of Android 4.4 KitKat and Nexus 5 which is being made by LG again.
