Google’s got a new Nexus phone… but not everyone wants a 6 inch phone with a $650 price tag. So even though the Nexus 6 is shiny and new, Google is continuing to sell last year’s model… kind of.
Up until recently, the Nexus 5 was out of stock at the Google Play Store. Now that’s changed, and you can pick up select models for about half the price of a Nexus 6.
The Google Nexus 5 features a 5 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel display, 2GB of RAM, 16GB to 32GB of storage, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. It supports 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, and 4G LTE.
While the Nexus 6 has a faster CPU, a better camera, and other improvements, Google’s flagship phone from 2013 is still a pretty great phone… especially with prices starting at $349.
Right now I’m only seeing options to buy the 32GB black or white models for $399 and it’s not clear how long these phones will remain in stock. But Google hasn’t discontinued the Nexus 5, so once the current inventory is sold out there’s a good chance the company will restock the store when more units are available.
