The leak storm is finally over, Google has just made the Nexus 5 official. The latest Nexus smartphone is manufactured by LG. It rocks a 4.95" Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) display with 1080p resolution, which adds up to a pixel density of 445 ppi. The fine news keeps on coming with the addition of Gorilla Glass 3 for enhanced classy screen protection.

Inside the Nexus 5 is a 2.3Giga Hertz (GHz) elegant Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset with four Krait 400 cores and Adreno 330 GPU. It's definitely not a slouch with 2GB of Random-Access Memory (RAM) and Android 4.4 KitKat at the driver's seat.

In a traditional Google manner, internal storage options are either 16GB or 32GB with no microSD card slot to be found. Below the back cover sits a 2,300mAh battery, which isn't exactly the largest we've seen on a 5" smartphone. However, it does support wireless charging, which is cool.

At the back, there's an 8MP with OIS and Light Emitting Diode (LED) flash. The capturing camera uses a 1/3.2" sensor and an f/2.4 aperture. The capturing camera module protrudes a bit from the rear casing with a Light Emitting Diode (LED) flash below it. At the front, there's a 1.3MP capturing camera for video calling, too.

The LG Nexus 5 measures 137.84 x 69.17 x 8.59mm and weighs just 130g.

On the connectivity side, the LG Nexus 5 has it all - penta-band 3G, 4G LTE, Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, A-GPS, NFC and even.

The Nexus 5 will be available in the US and Canada in North America, the UK, France, Germany, Spain and Italy in Europe, plus Australia, Japan and Korea (and coming soon to India).

The 16GB version of the Nexus 5 is priced at $349 / €349 / £300, while the 32GB versions are $400 /€400 / £340. Sales start tomorrow, November 1 from the Google Play Store. Other than the Play Store, you'll be able to grab one from Sprint, T-Mobile, Amazon, Best Buy and RadioShack.

By the way, the Play Store will also sell accessories for the Nexus 5 - bumpers and QuickCovers.

Update: Boy, that was quick. The US Play Store is reporting that the 16GB Nexus 5s are srecent out just a couple of hours after the launch. If you managed to snag one, it should ship by November 8.

Both 32GB versions (Black and White) are still available, but who knows how long this will last. Hopefully, the other retailers will have more units available.
