Google Nexus 5 rumoured price is just £185

If you thought the Google Nexus 4 was cheap, check out the rumoured £185 price for the 5-inch Nexus 5.

If you thought the Google Nexus 4 was cheap, just wait until you get a load of the rumoured price for the hotly-tipped Nexus 5. You'd think an extra inch on the screen would add to the cost, but word on the street says something very different.

PhoneArena reports the 16GB LG Nexus 5, with a 2,300mAh battery, will cost just $299 (£185). Meanwhile the 32GB model has a 3,000mAh battery and will cost $399 (£247).

It remains to be seen whether those US prices will translate directly to British pounds and pence. The Nexus name is known to stand for a bargain -- the original Nexus 4 cost £240 for an 8GB model -- but £185 is ridiculous.

The new 5-inch Nexus is expected to drop any day now, with leaks all over the show including sneaky snaps and even the user manual .

Built by LG and similar to the LG's powerhouse G2 , the 4G Nexus 5 is powered by a heavyweight quad-core 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor with 2GB of RAM. Despite the name, the screen actually measures 4.95-inches, but with 1080p detail it's close enough for government work.

It's also tipped to sport focus-changing MEMS sensor and optical image stabilisation in the 8-megapixel camera.
