With the large amount of Nexus 5 rumors making their rounds through the net, it’s hard to keep track of them all. Well, the latest rumor of the upcoming device debunks previous rumors regarding the price of the Nexus 5.
According to a source from AndroidGeeks, the upcoming Nexus 5 will run for $399, which is still a rather affordable price point for an off-contract device. Previously, it was rumored that the Nexus 5 would ship at half the price of the iPhone 5s (around $300). At $100 more than the previously expected price point, the Nexus 5 may be looking a little too “expensive,” especially when you consider that the Nexus 4’s starting price was $299. Either way, with most smartphones running for $600+ off contract, $400 isn’t something to cry about.
Speaking of the Nexus 4, the handset may reappear alongside the Nexus 5 with LTE and better storage options. The LTE-enabled Nexus 4 is pegged to start at $299 for the 16GB model and $349 for the 32GB model. If that’s not an interesting turn of events, we don’t know what is.
Of course, like every other rumor, you should take this with a grain of salt. All you should really hold onto is that the Nexus 5 is on its way, and likely very soon. However, the idea of having both the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 selling alongside each other is intriguing, and something we’d love to see Google do.
What do you think? Would you spend the extra $50 to grab the Nexus 5 or would you be happy with a Nexus 4 with LTE?
