Camera said to be improvement on Nexus 4 sensor

An unboxing of the upcoming Google Nexus 5 suggests that there is an iCloud-style back-up system included in the device. Accompanied by a number of photographs that leave little doubt to the device's existence, the Nexus 5 is said to feel similar to the LG G2 when held, though without the volume control buttons on the back.

Spotted by Phone Arena, a Reddit user posted five images of the device before passing judgment. The backup system is believed to store apps, data, saved games, and system settings, though some of this appears to duplicate some current backup processes already available on some Android devices. Though no specifications were directly mentioned, the camera is said to be an improvement on the Nexus 4 but not in the same league as the iPhone 5s, while the screen apparently tracked slow and quick swipes to a satisfactory standard. Battery life is said to be enough for around 17 hours of calling, 8 hours of web surfing, and 6 hours of video.

Specifications leaked by a carrier earlier this week claim that the Nexus 5 has a 4.95-inch 1080p display, an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor with 2GB of RAM, choices for 16GB and 32GB of storage, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, and dual-band Wi-Fi.

The latest rumor suggests that it will be launched on November 1st, alongside Android KitKat, though earlier rumors have also claimed launch dates, later found to be incorrect.
