Here’s the most official teaser of Google Nexus 5 yet. some people are already seeing the Nexus 5 as an option to buy in the Play Store. The listing appears to have been made in error, as it is removed now but the most important — a starting price of $349 for the 16GB version. While that’s a higher than the entry level Nexus 4, which was selling at $299 at 8GB, but it’s still an attractively low price for we are getting. Google’s tagline for Nexus 5 is “Capture the everyday and the epic in fresh new ways. Starting at $349.”
Everything from the outside seems to be in line with the previous leaks. And last week’s leaks of service manual has already detailed the internal details of the device:: 1080p 4.95-inch display, 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 CPU, LTE and storage capacity upto 32GB. The overall blue accent of Android is going to be replaced with translucent effects and white accents. Some icons will also be changed. Hangouts app is rumored to be the unified messaging solution integrating hangouts and sms with the launch of Android KitKat.
Google is yet to announce anything official about the Nexus 5, but we don’t have to wait long.
The entire Android world has been eagerly waiting for update to Android 4.4 KitKat and the Nexus 5, not to mention rumor after rumor everyday. This afternoon something different has surfaced, Android Police have managed to get their hands on UI screenshots of the upcoming 4.4 update that showcase this new UI.
This leaked UI seems to be a work-in-progress and not the complete version of the new Google Play Store for Android. It looks like Google will be dropping the long menu and settings options in favor of a quick slide-out navigation drawer. Instead of using one pop-up when a user selects menu, you’ll now have a quick to access slide-out navigation bar according to latest UI standards of stock Google apps.
The slide-out navigation will have the following tabs:
- Store Home
- My Apps, My Movies & TV
- Shop – this one doesn’t appear at all times
- My Wishlist
The tipster also revealed some details about what’s next for the Play Store besides this minor change. Google is reportedly going to revamp the entire user interface to closely resemble Google Now, Google Keep, and the newly updated Gmail app with a card-based UI.
This update is expected to roll out at the same time as Android 4.4 KitKat starts reaching other Nexus devices, so the wait will probably be over by end of this month.
