After the Google Nexus 4 stock fiasco, you’d be forgiven for thinking that LG is somewhere around last place when it comes to candidates for the next Nexus manufacturer. It’s probably more likely to be Samsung or Motorola or HTC, right?
Well, not if this latest rumour is to be believed. We’re told that LG is prepping not one but two Nexus devices, specifically a Google Nexus 5 smartphone and Google Nexus 7.7 tablet. What the…?
First up, Google Nexus 5 specs are said to include – surprise, surprise – a 5in 1080p display, quad-core processor, and 13MP rear camera. So pretty much the same as every new high-end phone these days?
Other Google Nexus 5 specs purportedly include 2GB of RAM, a 3MP front webcam, and a choice of 8GB or 16GB storage. Really? No 32GB model?
As for the Google Nexus 7.7, it’s thought to have a resolution of 1920 x 1200 (294 PPI), a Tegra 4 processor, 8GB internal storage (somewhat surprising considering the Google Nexus 7 now comes in 16GB or 32GB), and front and rear cameras.
Both are expected to launch at Google I/O in May, alongside the next version of Android, namely Key Lime Pie.
The Google Nexus 4 has mostly been “SOLD OUT” since launch, and rumours suggest production has in fact halted in order to focus on the successor.
