Is LG testing the Google Nexus 5?

Is LG testing the Google Nexus 5?It’s generally a good idea to take executive talk with a giant salt-filled sandwich. Apple has no interest in phablets, and HTC wasn’t planning on a vanilla HTC One. Yeah, right.

Similarly, an LG exec has denied work on a new Nexus device, yet we’re hearing that the Google Nexus 5 is actually in testing – and has been for the past month.

That’s the word according to Korean-language site Daum, which claims that the device has been shown to Google’s CEO Larry Page, though it's not clear if he raised his eyebrows or tossed it in the bin.

In addition, sources say the LG Google Nexus 4 has sold three million units to date, which is reasonably impressive considering all the supply issues.

The whole Nexus thing has gone bonkers of late. For starters, there were no new devices at Google I/O; instead we’ve had to make do with a white Nexus 4, and vanilla editions of the Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One.

Android/Chrome guy Sundar Pichai says there will be more Nexus hardware, though the jury’s still out on who’s making it – or if there’s even a Nexus device already in development.

LG is continually mentioned in Google Nexus 5 rumours, despite the aforementioned supply issues that plagued the Nexus 4.

Of course, there’s always the chance that Daum’s proposed LG Nexus 5 does exist, and has been in testing, but that’s not to say it’ll ever see the light of day.
