    Google Soft Launches the LG Nexus 5; Full Specs & Now On Play Store for $350


    Without any fan-fare or even a fancy event, Google just announced the LG-made Nexus 5 by making it available on the Google Play Store. The new phone also includes Android 4.4 KitKat just as predicted. As we reported previously, the 16GB version of the phone is $349 and the 32GB version is $399 making this a phenomenal deal. Here's the full spec list:
    • Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 MSM 8974, quad-core, 2.2GHz, Adreno 330 GPU
    • 2GB RAM
    • 16GB/32GB; base version has 12.55GB of free space out of the box
    • 4.96-inch Full HD display (1920x1080 display) - pixel density 445 ppi
    • 8MP camera (2,448 x 3,264) with OIC
    • 16GB Storage
    • 2300 mAh Battery
    • LTE
    • Android 4.4 KitKat

    It's unusual for a company to soft-launch a new flagship device like this. Of course, this is Google and they typically do things differently. Plus we have had numerous rumors and leaks over the past several weeks, so perhaps they didn't feel it was worth the extra fluff. Sound off if you are planning to pull the trigger on this phone!

    For reference sake, here are the network bands:
    • 2G/3G/4G LTE
    • GSM: 850/900/1800/1900 MHz
    • CDMA: Band Class: 0/1/10
    • WCDMA: Bands: 1/2/4/5/6/8/19
    • LTE: Bands: 1/2/4/5/17/19/25/26/41

    Sadly, Sundar Pichai confirmed it would not be coming to Verizon. However, he did note that Google is specifically working with Verizon on some future projects. Here is the quote,

    "...working with [Verizon] on a set of projects for 2014."
