With new Nexus 5 and Galaxy S5 concepts being released on a weekly basis, we thought it was about time we looked at another couple, but we are more interested in the former handset because we believe it could be released first — well so all the rumors suggest.
Having already explained that the Nexus 5 could be skipped by LG this year and that Motorola were working on a new Nexus 4 2013 model, a recent sighting seems to disprove this. If we are to believe this recent leak then the Nexus 5 will not be based on the LG G2.
Gong back to that leaked image, we have come across a concept render (see here) of the Nexus 5 based on it to give you a clearer look at what it could look like clearly.
It does seem to resemble the Nexus 4 very closely and so another reason why this could actually be the Nexus 4 version 2 instead. One thing is clear though, it does look as though LG is still behind the next Nexus device, just hope they do a better job at stock control and also making accessories available from the start, or several week after release.
If we were to put that Nexus 5 concept up against the Samsung Galaxy S5 concept then we’d be hard pushed to choose a winner, but there will be some Samsung fans who are not convinced about those round corners, and does not show the radical design we expect to see next year.
According to the source of the S5 concept this could be loosely based on the LG G2, although we highly doubt that for one moment. The reason we say this is because Samsung will need to come up with something very radical, such as a metal or carbon fiber, or even a folding design which we have discussed in the past.
Looking over both concepts, which of the two do you believe has the edge if these were to be the final designs, although we highly doubt it?
