Google Nexus 5 Camera Might Come with GPS Controlled Feature

April 9, 2013, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Nexus phones always arouse some delightful interests, and the upcoming Nexus 5 has done the same.

The new device is expected to come out with the latest Android upgrade, that of 5.0 Lime Pie, as well as with a new, never-before-seen feature in its camera.

After the LG Nexus 4 hit a high note among consumers, the Nexus 5 is supposedly coming with a new patent that would give rise to a new camera feature with GPS control. While the spec sheet of the Nexus 5 have been making its rounds in tech world, we haven’t heard any confirmed reports.


The latest leaked report suggests that Google will include an excellent camera on board the device.

Rumors of a 9-megapixel CCD rear camera have been circulating, but there too, we don’t have anything solid to confirm.

The Google patent listing that has now arisen amidst the rumors reveals a technology that would make use of the GPS of the Nexus 5 and integrate it with the smartphone’s camera.

This means that the camera’s performance would be optimized in accordance to the weather conditions and the time of the day, as well as the user’s location, thus enabling it to take a better picture.

If the technology is developed fast enough to get inside the Nexus 5 along with the 5.0 Key Lime Pie, then the smartphone would have a feature that could pique interest in consumers.

The patent is true enough, but whether it will be present in the Nexus 5, that we cannot say. It’s hard to say how many people would relish this, but with such a camera feature along with a glossy spec sheet would be enough to make the smartphone a shining beacon in the market.
