Android N for Google Nexus 5nexus 5 android-n-preview-3

Even though its not mentioned in the list, we found this section(screenshot) in Google repositories and found out that a build with the code name of the original Nexus 5 (Hammerhead) is already being build by Daniel Cashman <dcashman> (NOT the TV Actor) under “The Android Open Source Project”. Which means there is a good chance that we will get Android N for Google Nexus 5 soon. However if they didn’t finally end up publishing the final build, there’s no good reason for that to not exist.

 

Google Nexus 5 compatibility for Android N

In every way the Google Nexus 5 is packed with the hardware requirements for Android N….

Chipset Qualcomm MSM8974 Snapdragon 800
CPU Quad-core 2.3 GHz Krait 400
GPU Adreno 330

….and the new release doesn’t really require much hardware power to bring the new features. so its just a mater of time that someone cook a custom ROM.

3rd party developments

Already there is a bunch of developers working on custom Android N for Google Nexus 5 ROMs at xda-developers.com so there is good chance that we will get a ROM as soon as possible
