    Newest Nexus 5 Rumor Pegs LG Again; Android 5.0, Snapdragon 600 & 5.2" 1080p Display


    We have a fresh new Nexus 5 rumor for you guys today. This one hails straight out of Korea and pegs LG to once again take of up the mantle of Nexus production. Just as before, this time LG & Google will loosely base the Nexus 5 on their existing flagship, namely the G2. It will several identical characteristics, but will also have some subtle differences to offset the costs. Here's what was shared,
    • 5.2-Inch 1080p HD Display
    • Snapdragon 600 (this is to help keep costs down so they can continue to sell the next Nexus at the $300-350 price range)
    • 2GB Ram
    • Android 5.0/Key Lime Pie

    There was no indication given as to whether the storage capacities will have changed. It's possible we will still see the same 8GB and 16GB models as before, but it is just as possible we will see an upgrade to 16GB and 32GB respectively. Finally, even though the new Nexus 5 will share the same basic structure as the G2, the leaked intel didn't specify whether the Nexus 5 will contain the rear controls like the G2.

    The phone is expected to launch in October of this year.

    Snapdragon 800 > 1080p display, if you're looking to save on costs.

    I think that part of the rumor isn't right myself, the 600 is still a new chip-set and a good one at that, not all that cheap... I don't think that's enough to offset 50% of a cost even with Google eating a healthy dose of overhead. Especially since everything the X was rumored to be at the price point was wrong, and a whole lot of people will flock to this device instead siphoning sales of the X. Google's strategy is confusing me these days, why not just use the X as the new N5 and have a bombshell device.

    Does not compute.

    I hope google doesnt throw all that money at the campaign. They would be better off spending the cash by giving it away to LG and letting them cut the costs on the new Nexus. I would be happier with that as I am either buying a used Galaxy S4 or the new Nexus.
