LG Nexus Android super phone incoming!
It’s been almost a year since Google launched its last flagship “Nexus” Android smartphone, the Galaxy Nexus from Samsung. Now rumours are starting to heat up that a follow up is in the pipeline, and it’s Samsung’s arch-rival that’s got the honour this time around. That’s right: an LG Nexus Android phone is on the way!
According to the Paul O’Brien of the smartphone forum site MoDaCo – and a man with a track record of inside knowledge – an LG Nexus phone is due out next month. It’ll be packing a HD display, as well as an eight megapixel camera and massive 2GB of memory for multitasking.
That sounds remarkably like the recently revealed LG Optimus G. The difference is that it’ll almost certainly run the very latest version of Android – which may well be Android 4.2 “Key Lime Pie” – using a quad-core processor.
Google typically launches a new version of Android with a flagship phone from a partner that runs the operating system completely unmodified, and gets new updates first. Samsung’s made two Nexus phones in the past, but HTC has also made one, and Asus makes the Google Nexus 7 tablet, so it wouldn’t surprise us if LG was given a turn.
