The LG Nexus has been leaked so extensively these past few weeks, there’s absolutely no doubt in our minds that it’s guaranteed to be at least one of the devices Google has prepared for us next Monday at their Android event in New York City. As you would imagine, despite all the leaks and multiple rumor reports from all over the web, Google has still not said a word on the device. LG on the other hand, the company manufacturing the device, has slipped up.
At an Optimus Vu launch event being held in India, Amit Gujral, Head of Mobile Product Planning for LG India, has been quoted by IBNLive as saying, “Google will unveil the LG Nexus on October 29 and the phone will be available in the Indian markets by the end of November.” He continued on to say the LG Nexus will include a 4.7-inch screen, Android 4.2 OS and a 1.5 GHz quad-core processor. All specs that have been rumored in the past.
Possibly the most interesting bit of information shared by Gujral is when the LG Nexus will be available in India, which could indicate Google’s launch schedule for the device. If what Gujral said is correct, and the LG Nexus makes its way to India by late November, I think it’s safe to say it will be available in the US sooner than that. Immediate retail availability on the Google Play store isn’t out of the question.
Of course this still isn’t an official announcement by any means, but again, there’s no way the LG Nexus won’t be announced at Google’s upcoming event. It will be there; you can bet on it.
