It looks like the rumors were true. The Nexus 5 manufactured by LG is now available for sale in the Google Play store at a base price of $349 for the 16GB model in black or white. The 32GB version is $399, with both phones shipping on Nov. 8.
Under the hood, the Nexus 5 has a 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor with 2GB of RAM, a 2,300 mAH battery, and a 4.95” 1920x1080 IPS screen covered in Gorilla Glass 3—that’s a whopping 445 pixels per inch. The phone’s also pretty thin, measuring 8.59 millimeters and weighing only 4.59 ounces.
On the software front, it’s powered by Android 4.4, KitKat —now with all of Google ’s Siri-like goodness. Say “Ok Google” on the homescreen and you’ll automatically start a voice search. There’s also a few updated apps and new camera features to make use of the Nexus 5’s 8-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization.
If you don’t want to order directly from Google, grab the phone at Best Buy, Radio Shack, and Amazon on Nov. 8. Google promises that the Nexus 5 will also be available at Sprint and T-mobile soon.
