CNET: Google and LG to Unveil Nexus Device at End of the Month

According to CNET, they claim to have all but confirmed Google and LG’s new Nexus device. Assured to be based on LG’s Optimus G, the device is set to be unveiled at the end of October and will more than likely feature the specs we wrote about earlier today – Snapdragon S4 Pro, 2GB of RAM, True HD IPS display, 8MP camera, and the two 8GB and 16GB storage configurations. Of course, the new version of Android, 4.2 will also make its debut.

As for an official name, it’s said that Google and LG are working closely to finalize a name. We here have been referring to it as the Optimus Nexus, but I think the Nexus G would be kind of neat.

End of October – does that work for you? And how about name ideas?


Cheers Jeff!

    I don’t care what it’s called if it has 16gb and no SD slot, since I won’t be buying it. LOL.

  • Jackson

    Well the normal lg optimous g is 32gb so I’m gonna assume they would stick with that.
    Google is also the top of the technology pyramid imo and I think they definitely know it won’t sell if they don’t put 32 at least

    I get it, you want there to be an affordable Nexus for everyone, FINE… BUT, make a super Nexus for those of us that can afford it DAMMIT! I’m looking at the GS3 and the Note 2, why would I buy a Nexus G? we have come to a point where Android(JB) is good enough to settle on and wait for updates when they come.

    Sound of an Optimus Nexus!! Not bad at all! In fact great!

  • PC_Tool

    Right. At ;east…you *think* it was.

    Unless Verizon made some official statement I missed…

    Nexus, Voyager

  • So true and well said! That’s why for me, I will not buy anything else but an Unlocked Nexus device! I hate contracts and carrier restrictions.

  • Chris

    They need a freaking SD card slot.

    And I really think they shouldn’t release 4.2. A ton of people don’t have 4.0 or 4.1.

    I’m still on the Thunderbolt with 2.3. So yeah.

  • I really don’t want the long LG Optimus G Nexus mostly because it will inevitably get shortened to OG Nex or something along those lines and for me and I’m sure many others the letters “OG” are reserved for the phone that brought so many in to the fold the OG Droid.

    I agree. I need way more storage than that… My Bionic has 16G internal and 64gig extSD.

    Droid Life Friday Poll: What do you want LG and Google to name their next flagship Nexus device?

    a) LG Optimus G Nexus
    b) LG Optimus Nexus
    c) LG Nexus Optimus
    d) LG Nexus G
    e) Koala

  • Anyone else think the sides look similar to the i*hone?

  • How about internal microSD storage?

  • If Verizon isn’t getting it, there’s no point. I’ll keep my Galaxy Nexus for 5 years before moving off Verizon’s LTE coverage.

  • If any Nexus will be on Verizon, I’d think it would have to be the Galaxy Nexus 2. I mean, Droid 2, Droid Incredible 2, Droid X2.

    It may be that it’s not on Verizon and Verizon doesn’t have a Nexus at all. But the idea that Verizon would have a Nexus and it would be a phone other than the sequel to one of their exclusive phones seems really unlikely. This is assuming the G-Nex 2 will exist, of course.

  • chris125

    So when will 4.2 be pushed to other nexus devices such as the nexus 7? Around same time?

    • Bionic

      You can bet on it. No reason to hold back.

  • Verizon,Razor HD Maxx type of battery life, and decent build quality and I’ll take it…..The Galaxy nexus is still my favorite phone (On screen buttons! only drawback of the s3) but I’m done compromising for battery life.

  • Nexus G
    G Nexus

    Mind blown O_o

  • Jim McClain

    Correct me if i,m wrong, but doesn’t ‘CNET’ mean Apples Bitch ?

  • MichaelFranz

    the storage is what turns me off about this. I know it was talked about earlier. I still think i may jump ship for a note 2, still waiting on the HTC 5 incher as well for the specs

  • KleenDroid

    And that it only has 8 or 16 storage options with a non removable battery.

    This is not a real Nexus and it will sell poorly.
