New Nexus 5 Concepts: Sleek, Power-Packed Google Device that Sells for Only $US99

Nexus 5 has inspired two interesting ideas that render a very powerful and attractive image of the upcoming Google device - a power-packed CPU that breaks the 2.0GHz barrier with a price tag of less than $100.
Nexus 4 won too many fans despite the woes that blemished its worldwide distribution and the next time around those believers look forward to a better gadget and hopefully better ways for Google to ship out the smartphone.
Folks at AndroidPit envision the Nexus 5 as a sleek and trendy little machine covered in a black shell - a mixture actually of carbon, metal and glass to achieve "a metallic look," plus durability that was absent with its predecessor.
On its face, the Nexus 5 render flashes an edge-to-edge display screen that relies on a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for protection. The absence of noticeable left and right margins "is to optimize the smartphone's surface space, all the while retaining its overall compact form," AndroidPit explains.
At the back of the concept, the artist placed a multicoloured X icon that doubles as the Nexus 5's notification tool. Its LED light flashes to call the owner's attention on missed calls and unread messages for instance.
The full specs as dreamed by AndroidPit read below:
- 135 x 71 x 9 mm
- 5-inch display with 1920 x 1080 pixels
- Snapdragon 800 with 2.3GHz from Qualcomm
- 2GB of RAM
- 32 or 64 gigabytes of internal memory
- Battery with 3200 mAh
- 13MP camera
- Video with 1080p
- Android 5 or Key Lie Pie
Over at AndroidandMe.com, the upcoming Nexus 5 takes the form of an NVIDIA Tegra 4i superphone that will be built by giant Chinese tech firm ZTE.
No image concept was offered by the website but its proposition will surely trigger sufficient interest among Android fans: Why not a ZTE Nexus 5 that retails at Google Play for only $US99?
If Google makes that a reality and improves on the Nexus 5 supply chain, the tech giant has a hit smartphone in the making that could prompt Apple and Samsung executives to revise their drawing boards.
