The phone sports a 5-inch Full HD display, protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3 with a 1920x1080 resolution at 445 ppi. The device weighs in at a light 130-gram. Nexus 5 is powered by a 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor with 2GB of RAM.

There’s not much to write home about the Nexus 5’s camera, since it houses a 8MP primary and 1.3MP front-facing camera. Google has said that the Nexus 5 comes loaded with a new advanced lens that captures more light for brighter night and sharper action shots. It also allows for optical image stabilisation for non-shaky images. The camera also comes with a new HDR+ mode that automatically snaps a rapid burst of photos, combining them for the best possible single shot.

Take a quick look at the Nexus 5’s features:

  • 4.95" 1920x1080 display (445 ppi) Full HD IPS display
