Google Nexus 5 back in stock following Nexus 6 announcement with Lollipop

The Google Nexus 6 maybe the hot topic today following its announcement last night, but with the release of the Nexus 6, Nexus 9 Tablet and the new Android Lollipop OS it’s easy to overlook last year’s excellent smartphone offering, the Google Nexus 5.

Well it would seem that Google are not ditching their popular Nexus 5 handset, as not only is the phone back in stock on the Google Play store, it also comes with a bargain price and the promise of the Android Lollipop OS coming in the next few weeks.

One of the reasons Google may continue to stock the Nexus 5, is the sheer size of the Nexus 6 may put off some customers.

The Nexus 6 is Googles largest smartphone with its 5.9 inch display, quad HD with 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution and 493ppi display. Behind the massive screen is a Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core 2.7GHz processor. The camera is a modest 13 megapixels and uses a 3220hAh battery. The handset will be made available in both 32GB and 64GB memory variants, and will hit the shelves in November after pre-orders in late October.

Google have already announced plans to support the Nexus 5 ongoing with the new software, and generally the Latest version of the Android OS will land on the Nexus devices second, after the flagship devices (in this case the Nexus 6/9) have launched with the base OS.

We love the Nexus 5 handset, and with its new price and top spec it’s still a very desirable smartphone, plus with Android 5.0 Lollipop coming, it’s a definite winner for Google to keep backing.
