Nexus 5 to sacrifice screen quality in favour of camera and battery
The latest mobile phone from Google, the Nexus 5, may not be have full HD display as rumours surface that the company is sacrificing screen quality in favour of a better camera and longer battery life.
It appears the company may be leaving the huge screens to rivals Samsung with its Galaxy Note 2 and shrink down the size of its display, according to rumours from Phonearena.
The source also thinks that Google will sacrifice a full HD screen in favour of a 720p IPS display, although it is against the current trend. This does seem a bit unlikely as currently streaming HD videos is a massive focus for users and manufacturers alike.
It also appears that the screen will take up 88 per cent of the handset which doesn't seem to leave a lot of room for much else on the front.
An advantage of the move would be the battery life coming from a 2800mAh pack, which could last more than 30 hours of moderate usage before it needs to be recharged.
More definite information about Google's Nexus 5 should be announced at the Google I/O in May.
