Google is expected to unveil their next-generation Nexus phone later this month and the phone will be co-developed and manufactured by LG. The new Nexus as reported by Cnet will be a modified version of LG’s Optimus G which was announced last September 19, 2012.
According to Modaco; the soon to be unveiled LG Nexus will have a Qualcomm’s Snapdragon quad-core processor, 2 gigabytes of RAM, a 1,280×768 True-High Definition IPS display and an 8-megapixel camera. The upcoming Nexus will also have (or not have — depending on how you look at it) a nonremovable battery, no microSD slot and only 8GB to 16GB of internal storage; a reminiscent of Apple’s design choice when they first unveil the iPhone. You can see the complete specs below.
- Updated Android release (currently 4.2)
- Quad Core Snapdragon S4 processor
- 2GB RAM
- 1280×768 True-HD IPS screen
- On screen soft keys (of course)
- 8 Megapixel Camera
- No microSD slot
- 8GB and 16GB versions only (at least initially)
- Non-removable battery
- Wireless charging built in
- The retail name of the device is yet to be decided.
It is yet to be confirmed if LG will be the exclusive maker of the upcoming Nexus though I won’t be surprise if Google will allow other phone manufacturers to release their own Nexus phone. After all they’re also in the phone manufacturing business when they acquired Motorola Mobility for $12 billion last May 2012.
