Are these the final specs for the LG Optimus G Nexus?


We have been on the trail for the next Nexus for the last month, and now some more sources are joining the hunt to help us piece together the big puzzle. Today Paul O’Brien from MoDaCo has shared a list of specs for the LG Nexus that we have been reporting on the last couple of days. Check out the full list of specs after the break.

Rumored specs of the LG Nexus include:

  • 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

Most of these specs match up with what we previously reported and the details from yesterday’s LG Optimus G Nexus hands-on report. New details include the lack of microSD card (expected for a Nexus), non-removable battery, and wireless charging built in.

We were told the final product name might be “LG Optimus G Nexus”, but that doesn’t really roll off the tongue. Paul says that the retail name has yet to be decided, and we wouldn’t be surprised if this device gets a new name by the time it launches next month.

Paul is a friend of mine, so I trust that the details he has reported are accurate. I find it interesting that he says he doesn’t know if this will be the only Nexus device, because we too have yet to get solid details on anything but this LG Nexus. We were already told that the LG Nexus is the device being handed out to Googlers, and we believe it will be the first phone to go on sale with Android 4.2.

Look for additional details to leak in the coming weeks.
