Another report claims Google Nexus 5 coming from LG

Google Nexus

A recent rumour that Motorola would be behind a Nexus smartphone set for Q4 definitely caused a stir. Since then, two reports have surfaced that point to LG being Google’s company of choice for the Nexus 5. The first came from Chinese website MyDrivers and now the usually reliable Vietnamese website has weighed in with its details.

According to this latest report, LG will indeed build the Nexus 5 for Google. And as past rumours have suggested, it will be based on the LG G2 flagship smartphone. It will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC and Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, the next major version of Android. Also on board is the same 5.2-inch FHD (1080×1920) display as on the G2. As expected, it will not have the power and volume buttons on the back but rather on the side. Thinner bezels as well as an overall thinner design with Nexus 7 overtones are also expected.

One possibility is that two Nexus smartphones could launch in the last quarter, both with the latest version of Android. Much like Google has done by offering two different Nexus tablets (the Nexus 7 and the Nexus 10), it could also simultaneously offer two smartphones, one from Motorola and one from LG.

The Google Nexus 5 is expected to launch in Q4 2013.
