    According to the latest rumor-mill, the next generation of Android Nexus will again be based upon LG hardware. Supposedly, the Nexus 5 will utilize the same internals as the upcoming LG G2 flagship. The source of this news even shared these hardware details, which seem to match up with previous info on the G2:
    • Snapdragon 800 processor
    • Either 2GB or 3GB of RAM (Undecided as of yet)
    • 13MP camera with OIS
    • 2700 mAh battery
    • 5.2-inch display Full HD IPS display
    • LTE-A support
    Furthermore, the source of this report also indicated the device will launch in October with Android 5.0/Key Lime Pie firmly planted within. Of course, this is merely rumor at this point, but we will keep a watchful eye out for any more details which might corroborate this intel.

    If true look for an Apple lawsuit. OIS is the same 3 letters as ios.

    I don't see how they would keep the cost within the price point for a typical Nexus phone, if it's got much of the same hardware as the G2. Don't get me wrong, this would absolutely be my next device if it were to come to Verizon. However, I think you're probably correct in that it'll be released on the other major carriers. One of my work colleagues just switched from Sprint to T-Mobile last week, and so far he's quite happy with the service. Granted, Sprint's coverage in my area is pretty awful, but I'm monitoring his situation to try to determine whether I make that leap as well. I like having unlimited data on Verizon, but that isn't going to last forever AND they've been passing up on (or receiving later than everyone else) essentially all of the phones I'm interested in as my next device. Only time will tell, I suppose.

    I the Nexus 4 had been LTE I would have been all over it at $349 (for 16GB model). If this 5 model comes in at $400 or so I'm in on release day. (you can't get a used S4 at that price).
