Some more news. Not really new though.

Here's some more news.
Here's the case that's on amazon. http://www.amazon.com/SPIGEN-Google...79342987&sr=8-8&keywords=nexus+5+cases+SPIGEN
One person says it fits great. Then another person asked if it was a demo unit. They go on to say it's a "Vapor Edition Nexus 5". What is Vapor edition?
a joke i think... vapor edition as in it does not exist yet.
Nothing to see here...
Source: Android Police emailed them about it. I won't post the link for language, but if you're interesting in reading the whole thing you know where to find it
It goes on a pretty good rant about tech blogs and the need for fact checking before going hook line and sinker for rumors
It will be interesting how it stacks up to the galaxy note 3... I went with the HTC Rezound and it still is a good phone almost two years later, but sure hate the software support. I will buy my next phone outright so it will probably be the Nexus 5.
this looks interesting, looks like another leak on the Nexus 5

Now that's a leak!
Its still got that soft looking plastic and the large camera ring.
Well this should be good news for a release to be sooner than later
Nexus 4 16GB is officially sold out on Google Play, the new Nexus 7 LTE as well
Looks like the button arrangement might be the same as the Gnex, not sure how the N4 was laid out. The 2nd vid shows him pressing power at the upper right side of the phone. So goodbye back buttons ala LG G2. Which I'd consider a positive. I have the G2 and although I do think I'll get used to them eventually, I'd prefer the standard volume/power button arrangement. If it ain't broke...
How that the Padfone Infinity 2 has been revealed, I am in quite a bind. Specs on GSM arena show it will work on AT&T HSPA and refarmed T-Mobile HSPA. No North American LTE though. According to reports, it takes better pictures than the S4 & HTC One. Decisions, decisions.
I accidentally hit the volume button on my GNex all the time. I never really need to hit them once I get them set to the right spot though, so back buttons sound great.
As far as the power button I hit that accidentally sometimes too whether it is on the side like my Gnex or on top like my Droid X. Not sure how I'd feel about it on the back, but if the phone did the tap on screen thing like the G2 or the flip over/out of pocket thing like the X it wouldn't matter much.
Yeah I use that knock on feature all the time. I figured it'd be gimmicky and I'd get sick of it like facial recognition but no, I love it. I don't love the back buttons only because I've occasionally hit one of the volume buttons or power with my left index finger while texting in landscape mode. If they'd make an option to disable back buttons while screen on and while in landscape mode, it'd be fine.
Aww Yisssss!!!! I've been waiting for the Nexus 5 thread to arrive. Having been there for the mighty Droid Incredible & Galaxy Nexus threads, I can't wait to be a part of the Nexus 5 thread. I'm definitely getting this phone when it comes out, even if it means ditching my Verizon unlimited plan.
I'm also glad to be a part of this thread and might post from time to time. I may not post often, but I'm always here watching.
I wasn't there for the Incredible thread, but the GNex thread was pretty epic > 88K posts.
Seeing as we now know practically everything about the Nexus 5 I don't think this thread will reach such epic proportions Oh, and there's no HanSolo to keep it going, or Steven and his mysterious source.
Yep, and quite a few of us in that thread were/are Verizon customers and as it appears the N5 will be on all the major carriers except Verizon, only those willing to ditch unlimited data and switch carriers are here from VZW or just lurking and praying it actually does get released on VZW, however unlikely.
WiFi Certs for a 'C' and an 'S' model
Nexus 5 receives its WiFi certification, Nexus 5c and 5s spotted?
Apparently the nexus 5 has been spotted in a GFX bench result. I have no idea how hard it is to fake something like that
Nexus 5 apparently spotted in GFX Bench with Snapdragon 800 and Full HD display
"Listed as the Google Nexus 5, the device has a 2.3 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC with Adreno 330 GPU and a Full HD display, according to GFX Bench – the listed resolution is actually at 1794 x 1080 instead of 1920 x 1080, with the difference most likely accounting for the on-screen menu buttons"
Here is the link to a search for nexus 5. note the nexus 5 and the gnex. If these numbers are accurate it crushes the gnex
Hmmm. CDMA and GSM?
Just a guess. Probably not.
I'm just hoping the S isnt "Sprint"
I prefer to think "Cool" and "Super"....
I originally thought the S stood for Sprint as well, and it would certainly help settle my update concern if they're getting they're own model. Maybe the C stands for carrier unbranded?
Being that a certain company is launching a phone today, I'm expecting Google to send invites for a special event for the next Nexus real soon.......I hope. Lol
What's phones that? I haven't seen any company who's marketing budget is higher than their product development budget announce a new phone
* Don't like the iPhone at all, but must admit, the finger print thing looks pretty cool, and it would appear it actually works well.
