For the past few months there has been a lot of rumors regarding the Nexus 5and now that we are expecting it to be announced/launched within this month a new one comes popping out.

Android Geeks’ trusted tipster has revealed to them that the upcoming Nexus 5 will be more expensive than its predecessor. According to him, the 16 GB Nexus 5 will be priced $399 while the 32 GB model will be priced at $449.

And as to the question why the Nexus 5’s  price will be higher than usual nexus prices, the answer is because there will be also an LTE-enabled Nexus 4 coming along with the Nexus 5. According to the source the Nexus 4 LTE will sport the same specs as the original model except for the LTE capability, and will be available with either 16 or 32 GB of storage, at the same prices at the original at $299 and $349, respectively.

Nexus devices are usually sold at cost which makes them even more appealing to consumers. And wether this is true or not, a Nexus 5 that is expected to have 5-inch 1080p LCD display, quad-core Snapdragon 800 chipset, 2 GB of RAM, 16/32 GB of storage, and an 8 MP camera with optical image stabilization isn’t really bad at $399-$449 considering other smartphones with similar specs are usually priced at $600 and above.
