Picking fault with the LG Nexus 4 is both difficult and unfair – no Smartphone to date has been able to deliver even close to the same value for money. That being said, critics will always have their wicked ways and this time around, the biggest apparent bugbear of the Nexus 4 seemed to be the camera, which although perfectly satisfactory isn’t exactly a show-stopper.
Well, it seems the next time around the new Nexus Smartphone – aka the Google Nexus 5 – will solve this particular problem with spectacular style. In fact, according to one Google executive by the name of Vic Gundotra, the future of Nexus Smartphones will incorporate the use of “insanely great” cameras.
While the statement is in its own right rather vague, it singlehandedly confirms not only that the upcoming Nexus 5 will most likely sport a new market-leading camera sensor, but that the Nexus project is indeed alive, well and ready to bear fruit once again.
The camera fitted to the LG Nexus 4 is perfectly fine for delivering the goods to a certain extent, but when held alongside the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the iPhone 5 it begins to look rather sketchy. Market research in the US has confirmed beyond all reasonable doubt that attributes like camera prowess are becoming more and more important as consumers continue replacing their stand-alone cameras and other devices with Smartphones.
As such, experts and analysts alike have reached the same consensus whereby the Google Nexus 5 – which could land as the LG Nexus 5 – will pack a stunning 13-megapixle camera that’s right up there with the best of them. What’s more, Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie is also expected to boast stunning camera software the likes of which could see the Nexus 5 take a decisive lead.
The Nexus 5 is expected to be announced and unveiled at the Google I/O in May, to be followed by a release date in June or July.
