It also comes with a 2,300mAh battery and wireless charging capability, as well as a micro-USB port, dual-band WiFi, LTE, NFC, and Bluetooth 4.0 on board.

Its 8-megapixel rear camera has optical image stabilization and the ability to combine multiple exposures into a single photo, lightening up dark areas and bringing out details lost by a flash. Meanwhile, the front-facing camera is clocked at 1.3 megapixels.

The Google Nexus 5 comes in two models: one for North America and Europe, and another for Asia. Both editions will have 16GB and 32GB versions, which will cost $349 and $399, respectively. The new LG-made smartphone is now available on Google Play Store, with your choice of black and white, for AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile customers.
