WIND Mobile Posts Nexus 5 Registration Page, Along With “Official” Specs List

Nexus 5 WIND

A Canadian carrier called WIND Mobile, via its Facebook page, decided it was the perfect time to post up a pre-registration page for the Nexus 5. Sure, the device has yet to be announced by Google or LG, but they are going for it anyways. Not only are folks asked to sign up to be notified when the device goes up for sale, but they also posted the Nexus 5’s full technical specifications and dimensions. That’s nice of them.Β 

According to WIND, the Nexus 5 will feature all of the specs we have seen rumored for a while now. It has the Snapdragon 800 processor, 4.95″ 1920 x 1080 display, 2GB of RAM, an 8MP back-facing camera with OIS technology onboard, and of course, Android 4.4. Included along with the specs are the dimensions, coming in atΒ 69.17 x 137.84 x 8.59 mm. Full list is below.


  • Screen: 4.95-inch 1920Γ—1080 display (445 ppi) Corning Gorilla Glass 3
  • Cameras: 1.3MP front facing 8MP rear facing OIS
  • Weight: 130 grams
  • Dimensions: 69.17 x 137.84 x 8.59 mm
  • Operating System: OS Android 4.4, KitKat
  • Chip Set: 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor
  • Wi-Fi (2.4G/5G) 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac NFC (Android Beam) / Bluetooth 4.0
  • Storage / Memory / Ram: 16GB or 32GB internal storage 2GB RAM
  • Ports & Connectors: microUSB, SlimPort enabled, 3.5mm stereo audio jack, Dual microphones, Ceramic power and volume buttons

Naturally, it appears that the registration page has been pulled for the time being. Canada has been an excellent source of Nexus 5 info today, especially with these alleged snapshots of a warehouse room full of N5s.

We know, this situation is now officially out of control, and we hope Google will just go ahead and announce it already.

  • OhOh

    Looks like the Nexus 5 available on the play store does not support AWS… so it wont work with Wind Mobile…. What?!?!

  • Nexus Lifestyle

    I saw the screen cap of the spec lists on another tech site and you can see the 32gb variant has an * next to it in the specs, but they don’t show what the * stands for…. could this be the bigger batter on the 32gb variant?

      ok here from the NSA you have posted a politically incorrect term we are going to let you off the hook this time its not like you said the redskins or something.

          Nope. Still rocking my GNex on 4.3. Waiting for the January S5 update. You just had so much dumb in your two comments it burned my eyeballs reading it

            I got you kid

  • CaptainHowdy13

    The hypebeast teapot is boiling over!

  • Andy Stetson

    Well well, assuming that this is correct, the fact that it has OIS should give LG G2 owners, like myself, that AOSP 4.4 will have support for the feature, thus making AOSP roms more tasty for G2 owners.

  • iNfAMOUS70702

    The long… Completely unnecessary wait made me not care anymore and get the note 3 instead… Couldn’t be happier

    Notice the hashtag of #momentsthatmatter and how it matches up with the last part of the N5 registration text. This is too much of a quinkidink for me to think the N5 isn’t coming tomorrow! Get excited!

    • Larizard

      This is making me think that there will be heavy emphasis on the IOS tech onboard the Nexus 5. But the question is…

      .. what ELSE?


  • BB BB

    Looks like the hardware is ready to go but kit kat has some last minute bugs keeping them all up at night.

  • dglelite

    Real or not, google has really f’d up the rollout on this Flagship phone

    Just simply announce it already…there is no suspense anymore.

      We wont be able to help you here as we use real mobile computer phones here.

  • I_haz_root_beer

    Does no one else notice that the dimensions the Canadian site is listing are not the same as the previous leaked dimensions?
    And that if you go by the Canadian site’s leaked dimensions, the Nexus 5 will in fact be taller and wider than the Nexus 4?
    To me, this means their pre-registration is nonsense, designed to drive traffic to their site and collect a bunch of email addresses….

  • Liderc

    Crazy how they got the dimensions so close to the Galaxy Nexus and yet the screen is nearly a half inch bigger + larger battery.

  • Eric

    So LG G2 with smaller screen and worse camera. I think I’ll get the G2 since I can just flash cm.

    • trwb

      I like the g2 better too but its about $200 more off contract than the nex

      • Eric

        I buy on contract so cheaper for me. I plan on getting it next week.

        • interstellarmind

          No, you are paying for the rest of the $600 retail price of the phone in your contract.

          Look at it this way:
          A 2-year contract gets you a phone for $200 (which is usually $800). Your monthly bill is $100. So for the 2 years you’re all in with $2,600 (24 months x $100 + $200 phone)

          I buy an N5 for $400. I go prepaid for $50 a month (or even the 2-year, unsubsidized TMo contract for $50 a month that I’m on now). So for 2 years I’m all in with $1,600 (24 months x $50 + $400 phone).

          Even though I will pay twice as much as you for your on contract phone, I still manage to save $1,000 more than you over the course of 2 years.

          • i pay $60 a month for my unlimited vzw data plan total. what if i just got the G2 for 600 and then 60*24 = $2040 for two years. not bad and superior coverage and unlimited 4g LTE

    • s2knj

      Just did this today. was gonna hold out for the N5 but ultimately, I couldn’t leave verizon. The G2 is a great phone and with the option of CM, makes it even better

      • Skittlez

        i have CM on the G2. It is great and much better than having stock, but i still would rather have a nexus. way better experience.

        • how come though? if i got a n5 i’d flash CM10.2 as well. only thing im worried about is that rear power switch on g2…

          • Skittlez

            it’s something i can’t explain. when the OS is made for that device/chipset, it’s just retarded smooth. nexus 4 is still my favorite experience. i guess it’s all preference though. even when i had my Gnex, i loaded CM on it, and it was laggy. Loaded up Shiny’s ROM which is pretty much just a deodexed OTA version, and add my mods, and it was super smooth. the only problem the gnex had besides draining the battery was the fact that the phone would lag like crazy when installing updates and trying to do other things on the phone, which wasn’t too often, but other than that, super smooth.

          • darn… right now im debating the LG G2 off contract to preserve unlimited data plan for $60 a month. or i go to ATT and get N5 and 3b tiered data for $60 a month….. decisions

          • Skittlez

            is t-mobile not good in your area? $10 bucks more gets you unlimited everything with them

          • No the coverage is pretty bad where I’m at. I live in college park, MD and my friends always complain about lack of signal

          • Droid 1967

            hi again πŸ™‚ once we get the tot for nexus 5 you’ll have exactly that on the g2.

          • Skittlez

            i guess i’m just a nexus whore πŸ™

        • s2knj

          Skittlez, do you lose a ton of G2 feature when you flash CM? Will the camera OIS still work? Also, theres no bootloader unlock for the G2 yet, right? Only root from what i’ve read

    • Skittlez

      less does not mean worse

    • chris_johns

      ur such a fail….dont comment here anymore

      • Eric

        Lol….why even bother commenting… Sorry I don’t think your coveted nexus is perfect.

  • hkklife

    I really wish they had gone with the bigger battery capacity (“Nexus Maxx”, if you will) for the 32GB version as rumored a few months ago. That’s really my only concern at this stage about the device. The G2’s battery life is superb and it’s a same that the usual Nexus Achilles heel continues again this year.

    • interstellarmind

      G2 has a 3000maH battery, N5 wil have 2300maH.

      So, factoring for bloatware and possible KitKat power consumption maximizations, I’d say the N5 will last 85% as long as the G2.

      And for half the price? The N5 is STILL a deal, if you ask me.

      • Droid 1967

        and the g2 battey life is just unbelievable. I think the processor is the main reason so the nexus 5 should be just fine even with the smaller battery. when not being used just sitting it uses like no battery at all i left it sit for 3 days just answering calls or texts mainly and after 3 days still had 50%. finally gave up my experiment and had to use the phone πŸ™‚

        • jimv1983

          The two things that make the most difference in battery life on the G2 are the 3,000mAh battery and the GRAM. The Nexus 5 has a 2,300mAh battery(that is only 77% the size but will result in much less than 77% of the battery life) and does NOT have the GRAM that the G2 has. The Nexus 5 will likely get about HALF the battery life of the G2. Based on your claim the stand by time of the Nexus 5 should be pretty decent and that is most likely due to the processor. However, once you actually start using it and have the screen on it will be a very different story. The biggest power hog of ANY phone is the screen. The Nexus 5 has a 4.96″ 1080p IPS LCD. In terms of battery life that is pretty much the worst type of display you can get on a smartphone. I’m expecting the Nexus 5 to get through a short day (maybe 11 hours off the charger) with 2.5-3 hours screen on time. Anything more and I’ll be surprised.

  • Larry the toucher

    Wait what? There’s another Nexus phone coming out?

  • Jeff

    A bit disappointed if this is correct in that the phone is a bit larger than the Nexus 4 (but still thinner) as it was before rumored out of the FCC to be smaller. That said, I’ll learn to live with it.

    • Bizzle9

      If these dimensions are correct, its larger than the S4. Sucks.

      • Liderc

        No way, the N5 is less than 2mm bigger than the Galaxy Nexus, so there’s no way it’s bigger than the S4 lol. S4 is huge.

        Edit: Looked it up, yeah the S4 is taller and wider than the Nexus 5. The only thing bigger is the Nexus 5 is thicker by .6mm – which is nothing.

        • Dav

          I was really hoping the N5 would be smaller than the N4. N4 was slightly big for me to hold comfortably and when I heard N5 would be slightly smaller with a bigger screen, I was going to get it for sure. Now that its saying N4 is even bigger than S4, I dont think i can use this phone ):

          • Liderc

            It’s pretty much the same size as the Galaxy Nexus, which is perfect for me. Tiny hands?

          • Trysta

            I hope you are right. I have a galaxy nexus now and it is approaching the upper limit of what I want to hold. I really wish phones would stop getting bigger. When I need a bigger screen I have my Nexus 7 always on me. (Yay for purses!)

            I’ll definitely have to try this out in person. Hopefully Google sells the Nexus 5 through some brick and mortar stores? Probably T-mobile again I’d assume?

  • RollTide17

    Is the 32GB version going to be available at launch? Every time I see posts about pricing or availability it only states the 16GB version for $349. The reason I ask is because I’m leaving Verizon for T-Mobile as soon as this phone drops and I need a phone to do that and 16 gigs won’t work for me.

  • dannydarko

    So, its a G2 without the 13 mp camera or higher res. front facing camera. I know no skin pure android but I’ll pass this time around.

    • SplashMTN

      It also has guaranteed updates, no carrier bloatware and only costs $350 with no contract.

  • Jeremy Gross

    that wasnt the dimensions given before, they got bigger, i though it would be easy to hold but its bigger than the s4

    • Droidzilla

      The prior dimensions were just a copy/paste job of the Nexus 4 dimensions.

  • F Teller

    Already obsolete.

  • Rtoodeetwo

    What vegeta would say about today’s Levels of hyperbeasting and current Canadian N5 stock levels


  • skinja99

    I have said it before, and I will say it again:

    I don’t understand on-screen buttons when the phone still has a large physical chin on the bottom. The bottom chin on the Nexus5 looks larger than the S4. So why not have the buttons be on the Chin, and then have more screen room?

    • C-Law

      That’s why I love my moto x. Minimal chin. makes more sense with on screen buttons

      • Liderc

        ^Clearly doesn’t know how awesome on screen buttons are.

    • jbdan

      I would guess it’s because of the speakers on the bottom of the device

    • trwb

      I totally agree with you. On screen buttons would be fine though if the chin wasn’t enormous.

    • Mike Hilal

      They think people hold their phones by the chin.

    • Jeff

      Internal components. The phone still needs space for whatever is below the screen, for all you know the chin would be even larger if they had to also have buttons along with at least the speakers down there.

      • trwb

        Not true for all phones. The s3 and s4 have very small bezel and almost no chin. They make phones with big bezels when they need to produce them cheaply.

        • Jeff

          Do the S3 and S4 have speakers in the chin?

          • trwb

            No they dont. You do have a point.

    • Liderc

      Because holding a phone in your hand, your thumb naturally rests higher up on the device, so having no bezel on the bottom would force you to push your thumb way down to hit nav buttons. The larger bottom bezel is down there by design.

  • AbbyZFresh

    Imagine the orgasmic feeling everyone would get the minute the announcement is officially made and evidenced by the phone showing up in the Play Store.

  • Razball

    Any conformation on battery size the note 3 battery life is doing me real good lol its gonna be hard to go back to charging a couple of times a day

    • trwb

      Why would you leave the note 3? Seems like a top of the line device. It has a lot of benefits over the nexus.

      • Razball

        Even though it does have all the extras stock android is something I always come back to and there is bits of junk here and there that I don’t like so yea idk want something new lol and the nexus’s have always lasted the longest with me nexus 4 I had for about 6-7 months then tried every flagship out this year in 2-3 week increments

        • trwb

          Does the note3 have aosp ROMs yet? Because you could get better hardware features on the note with essentially the same roms as the nexus. The n5 is enticing though.

          • Razball

            I don’t know haven’t had the time too root lol tmobile gives me 2.5gb of free tethering and that used to be one of my big reasons for rooting lol but another reason I prefer nexus is the on screen keys lol I love them I hate buttons

        • jbdan

          I honestly don’t know. I do know about ceramics used in watches though and it is extremely scratch/abrasion resistant. It could be considered extremely durable but not withstanding one caveat: it is brittle upon a certain impact. I have no clue how this plays out on a cell phones volume and power rocker though….. Stumped…

        • Liderc

          Ceramic is obviously more durable than plastic. Outside of that, I don’t know that there are many benefits.

          • Wyatt Neal

            Yea, so I did some digging. It looks like watch mfgs (as stated above) have been using it so it’s not like what we think of as ceramic:

            “Many people think of pottery or cookware when they hear the word “ceramics,” but the material used in watch bands is slightly different than that used in fragile cookware. The watch-making material is synthetic and known as high-tech ceramic. This more durable product is made through scientific techniques of firing and glazing other synthetic materials, such as aluminum, silicium carbide, yttrium, and zirconium. Powdered raw materials are placed inside a cast and heated to extreme temperatures. Skilled technicians then sand, shape, and polish the high-density material for beautiful and long-lasting results. High-tech ceramic is extremely durable, lightweight, and non-reactive. This material has been used in various industries like aeronautics and engineering. The Swiss company Rado was the first brand to use high-tech ceramics in its watches in 1986.” – http://www.ebay.com/gds/Advantages-of-Ceramic-Watch-Bands-/10000000177633171/g.html

        • NexusPhan

          Welcome to the dark side. I was the same way. Galaxy Nexus did it for me. I was due for an upgrade and no way I was about to get the iPhone 4S on Verizon.

      • Alan Fortte

        I think those 2 come at a distant 4th and 5th respectively. Remember, you have to take into consideration Google’s scheduling events to piss us off, making us want it even more, thus creating more buzz. It’s all for the publicity.

      • Galaxy Nexus definitely holds the crown.

        • jbdan

          And always will I believe (especially on vzw)

        • Michael Lierman
