NenaMark Benchmark Confirms Snapdragon S4 Pro Processor of the LG Nexus, Screen Resolution Too

Now that we know the codename for LG’s Nexus phone is Mako, we can start the usual searches for it across the web. One of the first things we almost always do is search NenaMark, as testers tend to benchmark their devices on this site well before they are ever released. After doing a quick “find on page” in the results section, you will definitely find a device by the name Mako that runs a similar “JellyBeanMR1” to the devices we saw last night in pictures(more…)

Here is the LG Optimus Nexus Sans Dummy Box, Does Sort of Look Like a Galaxy Nexus

The first pictures of what we are expecting to be the LG Nexus (LG-E960) appeared earlier this evening, giving us a glimpse of what Google has in store for November. Many of you were quick to point out the case surrounding it that seemed to be some sort of a dummy box, meant to disguise the device. Previous rumors had stated that the device actually looked more like a Galaxy Nexus in shape and size, but it was impossible to tell with that case around it. Well, until now.  (more…)

LG-E960 Pictured in the Wild, is This the First Sighting of LG’s Nexus? (Updated)

Remember the LG-E960, a device that we first reported last week after it cruised through the FCC? We questioned then whether or not this was the LG Nexus phone that the internet can’t stop talking about, and according to an XDA user, this is that same phone. He hasn’t said much about it’s origin other than a “random source” gave it to him and that it seems like a prototype.  (more…)

Another LG Nexus Rumor: Only 8GB and 16GB Options, Quad-core Processor, On-screen Softkeys and More

Ready for another next Nexus rumor? This time, we have one from Modaco’s Paul, who also claims that LG is for sure making a Nexus device. From what he has heard, the specs of it are mostly based off of the LG Optimus G, however, it won’t necessarily look like that phone.

Next Nexus Dubbed LG Optimus G Nexus, Program Changing to Allow for Any Manufacturer to Participate?

Ready to learn all about the next Nexus? According to our pal Taylor from Android and Me, the next in the program will indeed be made by LG and will be dubbed the Optimus G Nexus. For a couple of weeks now, rumors surrounding the next Nexus included LG, but Taylor claims to have essentially confirmed it with a handful of sources. We know him personally and tend to take him for his word, especially in Nexus talks.

As you all know, the Optimus G is already a favorite of ours because of its more-than-impressive set of specs which include a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2GB RAM, 13MP (8MP in some cases) camera, a brilliant 4.7″ IPS+ HD display, and a slim body. The skinned version will arrive on AT&T and Sprint at some point in the near future, but according to today’s rumors, the Nexus version could arrive in November.   (more…)

Rumor: Next Nexus Phone Coming Within 30 Days, Maybe Android 4.2 as Well

You may not realize this, but it was just last year on October 18 that Google and Samsung took to the stage to reveal the Galaxy Nexus and Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0). Today, is October 1. So where are all of the rumors surrounding the next Nexus device? By this time in 2011, we knew that the Galaxy Nexus was going to be called the Galaxy Nexus and also that Android 4.0 was ICS and that they would arrive together. This year seems to be completely different, though. In fact, we know absolutely nothing about the next Nexus phone, if or when it will arrive, and who is manufacturing it. All we have are a couple of rumors to go on, one of which is new and paints a 30-day window in to the picture.  (more…)

LG Optimus G Could Hit the U.S. in November, Similar to the LG Optimus Nexus?

That name has a good ring to it. LG Optimus Nexus. According to the Associated Press, LG’s newest device the Optimus G, will be hitting the States this November. So far it is only rumored to come to both AT&T and Sprint, but with no word yet for Verizon. The newest rumor to pop up from Android and Me backs up a previous rumor suggesting that LG may also be working on one of the new Nexus devices and could be titled the Optimus Nexus. As of now there’s no evidence to support the claim, but with LG putting out specs such as the ones in this newest device, it might be nice to see LG give a Nexus device a shot.   (more…)
