Previous rumors pegged the battery on the new Nexus 5 at a healthy 3,000 mAh. That was later partially refuted by a new rumor suggesting the 16GB version would be a 2,300 mAh battery, and only the 32GB would have the larger 3,000 mAhs. Today's newest intel may just drown both of these previous rumors. Supposedly, industry insiders revealed that both versions of the Nexus 5 will have the smaller 2,300 mAh battery. They also confirmed what we all could have guessed, which is that the phone will not come with a microSD slot.

Considering the leaked pic and price of $350 on the Google Play Store last night, this latest rumor seems fairly credible. At that price it would make more sense for Google to save some bread-crumbs by having a smaller battery. We are holding out hope that this new rumor is wrong, or that there might be additional versions available with a larger battery for a bit more dough. If this turns out to be true, would it make a difference for you?
