There has been a lot of speculation about the next Google Nexus flagship smartphone. Some rumors have pegged Motorola to be the manufacturer of the next Nexus smartphone. But other reports have suggested that Google will stick with LG. These new reports emerging from Korea reiterate those claims. The report also sheds light on the possible specs of the LG made Nexus 5. The smartphone will apparently borrow most of its credentials from the LG G2.
Since price played a pivotal role in the success of the Nexus 4, it is said that Google will stick to the same pricing model of $299 and $349 for the 8 and 16GB models respectively. But it’s not economical to have the same hardware as the G2 while keeping the price so low. So to keep up with the costs, LG will apparently pack a Snapdragon 600 chipset on board instead of the ultra-powerful Snapdragon 800, along with a 10MP camera instead of the 13MP sensor from the G2.
The reports claim that the display resolution will be bumped to 1080p. Take this with a grain of salt for now as we don’t have any confirmation yet. The announcement is pegged to take place sometime in October, possibly with Android 5.0.
