    Even more rumors are surfacing regarding an LG Optimus Nexus phone, making the possibility of the device more and more credible every day. The latest rumors even give detailed specs for it. Here's a breakdown:
    • The device is based on the Optimus G but doesn’t look the same
    • Updated Android release (currently 4.2)
    • Quad Core Snapdragon S4 processor
    • 2GB RAM
    • 1280×768 True-HD IPS screen
    • On screen soft keys (of course)
    • 8 Megapixel Camera
    • No microSD slot
    • 8GB and 16GB versions only (at least initially)
    • Non-removable battery
    • Wireless charging built in
    • The retail name of the device is yet to be decided.
    What is strange about this list is that the device will only have up to 16GB of storage and no microSD slot. Still, for most users this may not be that much of an issue. Apparently, this rumor also comes with the caveat that the phone will not look very much like the LG Optimus G that we have seen pics of already. Regardless, this seems like a pretty beastly phone. As always, we will keep you apprised with more details.

    Awesome specs.. except for the SD card.. I've gotta have an SD card. My nexus7 tab has taught me that.

    Not a fan of the non-removable battery. Ill keep my Galaxy Nexus and hope other Nexus phone devices are offered this year. Won't really matter anyway because as I've said, I don't see Verizon getting a nexus device for a good while unfortunately.

    Need at least 32gb of memory for offline video, music, pics and these huge games that are being released now. At least throw in a Mirco SD slot. Gotta have a removable battery too. Can't tell you how great it was to throw in a double sized Hyperion Battery for $20 and have the stock as a spare when I am away from a charger for very long periods. There is no way an even a Razr Maxx could keep up with the power demands I have.

    Needs to have at least 32gigs of memory if it's not going to have an SD-Card. My Gnex is perfectly fine. However, my 16gig Nexus 7 I always have to delete movies and stuff to make room for new things.

    Also, according to Droid-Life, this is being slated for an AT&T/GSM release(to be announced at the end of October as well).. so hopefully that's wrong or other Nexus phones come out as well.

    If not, I'll be going with the Note II.

    Yeah the storage there is a killer. I know Google wants us to use their stupid cloud services, but come on!! I need to have my music on my phone. I guess I've been spoiled with my Thunderbolt's storage- with 8 GB internal + 32 GB SD card, I've never had a problem. The one drawback of owning a Nexus phone.

    I might hold off to see what Samsung has in store. I'd at least like a removable battery. If I'm paying $350-400 for a phone (off contract) than I better be able to change the battery when the original one loses its life a year later.

    I'll buy a phone with lower specs that has removable battery & SD slot before I'll ever buy a top of the line phone without removable battery & SD slot.

    I can do the non removable battery, no problems or issues with my RAZR. I tried no SD slot with the G Nex. I didnt like it. Now I get storage warnings with my RAZR and I'm moving stuff from internal storage to the SD card every now n then. (think its mainly because of Google Music, Spotify, and having Motocast syncing.) I would need alot of internal storage for me to consider a phone. Even then, didnt like I had to back up everything on my G Nex when messing around with ROMs, just to be on the safe side.

    This might be a pass for me too.

    I guess I don't know what LG is thinking. You have some fantastic specs with the CPU/GPU, good screen and resolution and a significant amount of RAM, but cheap out on storage??? C'mon now. We are getting to the point where storage is crucial. 32GB should be the bare minimum on any top of the line smartphone. They should offer 64GB and 128GB options now. An SD card slot is nice for people that do a lot of media swapping, so that should also be a no-brainer. And please, non-removable battery? /smh

    What I'm thinking of with the battery being more formed and more built for the phone itself (and for the sake of the build thinness). They explained for the lack of SD cards in the Nexus line up of tablets and phones is the idea that they want the experience to be a whole experience, and all in one place, not all over the place and split up with the SD cards (their explanation). But yes, it should still be 16/32GB minimum for flagship phones in this day and age.

    between play music, drop box, and whatnot, I barely use any of my storage on my GNEX. I'm sure I wouldn't have a probmel with that. Still gonna wait for it to drop before I make any choice

    8 and 16GB only??
    And no SD slot? :icon_eek:

    I'll pass.
    SD slot and 32GB is a standard for me.
