According to recent reports, it has been revealed that the new Nexus phone that is rumored to be launched soon will be the LG Nexus G. Last time Google announced a Nexus branded phone was in 2011.
Previously, different reports and speculations suggested that the new Nexus phone that will be launched in the market might be the Galaxy Nexus 2 smartphone, the successor to the original Galaxy Nexus. However, according to data gathered by CNET, it might be LG who may come forth with a Nexus branded device by the end of October.
The information regarding LG’s contribution to the Nexus lineup by CNET comes immediately after the leak by MoDaCo, which also had the same information and details to reveal.
The name of the new device isn’t certain though as some suggest that the new phone might be called LG Nexus G while others suggest that the phone will be called LG Nexus.
The “Nexus G” will also reportedly boast the following features:
- Wireless charging
- Will run on Android 4.2
- 8/16GB worth of internal storage
- Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor
- Apparently there will be no microSD card slot
- 1280×768 true high definition IPS display screen
- Non removable battery
- 2GB worth of RAM
- No capacitive keys
Just like the Galaxy Nexus smartphone, the new Nexus phone will not come in support of microSD card, neither will it come with a removable battery.
Currently, CNET suggests that the phone will be launched by the end of October but another source suggests that the new Nexus phone will be launched by mid-of November.
While previously there was a lot of misunderstanding and confusion about the new Nexus phone, it all is starting to get clearer now. The new Nexus phone will not be Sony or Samsung branded but it will be LG who will be bringing forth a new Nexus branded smartphone, currently named as the LG Nexus G.
