New Nexus 5 2015 leak shows decent specs, could suggest modest price tag

The Nexus 5 2015 is by far one of the most highly anticipated smartphones of the year and it’s in no small part thanks to its predecessor. The original was considered the best bang for the buck smartphone in its category for several months and is still well regarded to this day. It’s pretty safe to assume that Google will once again deliver when it comes to the specs and the operating system, but what about the price tag? Well, the most recent Nexus 5 2015 leak indicates that the hardware is indeed powerful, but perhaps not powerful enough to justify a higher price tag than the original. Based on an alleged specs list uncovered by G for Games, we should be looking at the following:

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 64-bit hexa-core processor, with four Cortex A72 cores running at 1.8 GHz and four Cortex A53 cores clocked at 1.44 GHz.
  • Adreno 418 GPU.
  • 5.2-inch display with FHD 2K resolution.
  • 3 GB of LPDDR3 RAM.
  • 13MP Sony-made IMX278 four-color RGBW camera with optical image stabilization like on the LG G4.
  • nexus-5-2015-leak-weibo

There’s no denying that these specs are pretty impressive, but there are a number of much more powerful smartphones already out so it’s entirely possible that Google is planning a more modest price for the Nexus 5 2015 to avoid competition. Its predecessor went for about $350 unlocked and we’re thinking that this year’s model will cost about the same or maybe just a bit higher. As for the operating system, the Nexus 5 2015 is pretty much certain to come equipped with the upcoming Android 6.0 Marshmallow right off the bat. In fact, this will probably be the first device to sport a stock version of Google’s new operating system.

Speaking of Marshmallow, Samsung recently announced a list of devices that are scheduled to receive the update at some point in the future. Surprisingly enough, the list doesn’t include the Samsung Galaxy S5, but it does mention the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge and Edge+, Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note 5, among others.

Sony Expects 108 Million PS5 Sales This Generation

After the COVID-19 supply collapse, Sony CEO Jim Ryan is optimistic about PS5 sales. The Sony executive anticipates the PS5, the best-selling console for months, will sell 108 million units.

That’s difficult stuff considering Sony needs to sell 70 million more PS5s. Since supply has increased, consoles are selling like hotcakes in major countries, suggesting the firm is above 40 million.

Ryan stated in a recent games business briefing webcast and Q&A (thanks, TweakTown):

“The 70 million, I think, is the existing PlayStation 4 user base, and while we would hope to convert a large number of those people, we will definitely target and definitely be successful in bringing large numbers of gamers who did not own a PlayStation 4, and in many instances, who have never owned a PlayStation at all.”

Mr. Ryan’s numbers—should we focus on the 108 part?

PlayStation Studios’ PC Games to Grow Beyond FY22

PlayStation Studios PC sales were announced in Sony’s Business Segment Meeting, along with PSVR2 sales, PS Plus numbers, and major PS5 game release dates.

Spider-Man Remastered and The Last of Us: Part 1 led the pack with 1.5 million and 368K sales, respectively. Maybe it was worthwhile.

Sony expects this trend to continue (see that graph!). and will remain bullish on PC ports (quietly jacking prices in some places), but has stated that PS5 is the priority. The PlayStation Showcase, less than 24 hours away, may bring more PC announcements.

PlayStation Studios’ PC success—what do you think?
