After expanding the Google Play Music and Play Movies services in new countries, the Mountain View-based company has announced it will bring the Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 2013 handsets on new markets. As you’ve probably guessed already, we’re talking about Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 2013 availability through Google Play Store.
Until now, the Nexus 5 and the Nexus 7 2013 were only available in 12 countries, but you will now be able to purchase them in 20 markets. The six new markets that were added to the list are Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Netherlands, Portugal, and Sweden. Unfortunately, neither of the 6 new countries will get the LTE variant of the Nexus 7 2013, as it’s still limited to the 12 original markets.
Of course, the two handset were already available for purchase in the six aforementioned countries via retailers, but you will now be able to acquire them directly from Google.
Now that you know that the Nexus 5 and the Nexus 7 2013 are also up for grabs in Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Netherlands, Portugal, and Sweden, let’s have a look at their technical specifications.
The Nexus 5 arrives with a 5-inch True HD IPS+ display with 1080 x 1920 resolution, while the processing tasks are handled by a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.3 GHz. It arrives with 2 GB of RAM, 16/32 GB of internal storage, 8 MP primary cam, 1.3 MP secondary cam, 2,300 mAh battery, LTE, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, and microUSB 2.0.
On the other hand, the Nexus 7 2013 features a 1200 x 1920 7.0-inch LED-backlit IPS LCD screen, quad-core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU, 2 GB of RAM, 16/32 GB native storage, 5 MP rear-facing camera, 1.2 MP user-facing camera, and a 3,950 mAh battery. In terms of connectivity, the 7-inch tablet comes with WiFi, NFC< Bluetooth 4.0, and microUSB 2.0.
