Nexus 5 to come as Nexus 4 (2013)


Some reverse engineering has further been done on the leaked build of Android 4.4 KitKat running on an alleged Nexus 5 prototype. We keep calling it Nexus 5 just as the logic suggests that could be what the next smartphone after Nexus 4 (last year) could be called.

However, some sources suggest that it might be called as Nexus 4(2013) just as Google did with the Google Nexus 7. There are numerous arguments on the issue.

Firstly, in the settings, the device itself says Nexus 4, but all the other features do not form a hint for a Google hit phone. The faux chrome rim could also not be seen so some suggested that it might be Galaxy Nexus. The screen seems to bean LCD display as its black but not completely dark. However, it looks more refined that the AMOLED on the Galaxy Nexus. The front camera on the left and the earpiece grill on the right go in accordance with the positions we have been seeing in the leaked images that we assumed to be Google Nexus 5.

The version of baseband mentioned on the device is an older one, the one we already have on Nexus 4, but has been locked by Google. The build is listed as “hammerhead” and the internal name is listed as “mako”. As for the layout and interface, the app menu gives a 5×4 grid display unlike the 5×5 in the Nexus 4. The phone’s gallery and the camera app are also slightly different from those on Nexus 4.

In a nutshell, nothing is certain yet as everybody around the globe has its own arguments on the naming issue. Tell us what do you think about it?
