Owners of the Nexus 5 smartphone are in for some good news, as Google has officially launched the new Snap Case to protect your handset.
The Nexus 5 is one of the most popular smartphones currently on the market, as it packs good specs and features and offers it all at a budget-friendly price point. Moreover, the smartphone also comes with the much-touted Nexus experience, which delivers pure, unadulterated Android and guarantees timely updates as soon as Google releases a new version of the OS. Nexus devices are first in line to receive upgrades, and the stock Android OS has been highly praised.
Nexus 5 owners who have been eagerly waiting for the official Snap Case specifically designed for the smartphone will be happy to know the wait is now over and the protective cover is now up for grabs. The Nexus 5 Snap Case is durable and lightweight and is now available for purchase from the Google Play store in the U.S., sporting a $29.99 price tag.
Interested buyers will be able to choose from a range of color options for the Nexus 5 Snap Case, or go for a clear case that's more discreet. Options include white, black, aqua, silver, and clear.
As a reminder, the LG-made Google Nexus 5 comes with a 4.95-inch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. Under the hood, it packs a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor clocked at 2.3GHz, paired with Adreno 330 graphics and 2GB of RAM for a fast and fluid user experience.
Other specs of the Nexus 5 include an 8-megapixel rear camera with optical image stabilization (OIS), as well as a 2-megapixel front-facing shooter for selfies and video chats. The smartphone comes with either 16 or 32GB of internal storage capacity, but has no microSD for additional memory.
Like all devices in the popular Nexus family, the LG Nexus 5 proved to be very successful worldwide and received high praise for its good specs and affordable price tag. Owners of the smartphone can now take a step to protect their investment by purchasing a protective case for the device.
