We have seen our fair share of Nexus 5 concepts, but Rahul Sharma takes it up a notch today with a new design, the one shown below. The device has an ArcTouch sensor on the bottom, that glows for notifications and also looks pretty cool, if you ask me.

The same bright area is the Home button of the smartphone and the aim here is to maintain the Nexus design and add a few incremental curves and some edgy corners. The buttons on the bottom are for tasks management and the Back key. The Nexus 5 uses a combo of polycarbonate in the middle part with an anodized aluminum body at the front and a premium finish for the perfect Google flagship phone.

On the right side of the handset there’s a tiny sensor that’s used as the volume rocker and also for navigation. The bottom part of the sensor actually activates the camera. On the left side we’ve got a HDMI port, microSD and microSIM. As far as specs go, we get a 1.9 GHz Snapdragon 800 CPU, Android Key Lime Pie and 2 GB of ReRAM (resistible RAM made of memresistors). There’s also a 13.1 megapixel camera at the back, hexaband connectivity and a 5 inch Full HD edge to edge display of the SLCD3 kind.

As far as the power source goes, a 3100 mAh Li-Po battery will take care of the power. Google Voice 2, the latest Google Keep and an optional solar panel at the back complete the features list. Does this sound futuristic enough to you?
