We have a fresh new Nexus 5 rumor for you guys today. This one hails straight out of Korea and pegs LG to once again take of up the mantle of Nexus production. Just as before, this time LG & Google will loosely base the Nexus 5 on their existing flagship, namely the G2. It will several identical characteristics, but will also have some subtle differences to offset the costs. Here's what was shared,
- 5.2-Inch 1080p HD Display
- Snapdragon 600 (this is to help keep costs down so they can continue to sell the next Nexus at the $300-350 price range)
- 2GB Ram
- Android 5.0/Key Lime Pie
There was no indication given as to whether the storage capacities will have changed. It's possible we will still see the same 8GB and 16GB models as before, but it is just as possible we will see an upgrade to 16GB and 32GB respectively. Finally, even though the new Nexus 5 will share the same basic structure as the G2, the leaked intel didn't specify whether the Nexus 5 will contain the rear controls like the G2.
The phone is expected to launch in October of this year.
