We’ve been hearing rumors that an LG branded Nexus phone is coming to market this fall for almost a month now. Last night, we got our first clear look at what will be LG’s Nexus device, the E960, based on the Optimus G. Tonight, we get confirmation of some earlier rumored specs on the LG Nexus, as well as some more pictures further detailing the device.
XDA user 4shael has their hands on an LG Nexus prototype, and has started a thread on the device to answer questions anyone might have on it. After a few questions on specs, network compatibility and how the device compares to the Galaxy Nexus, we starting to get a better idea of just what’s inside the LG Nexus.
According to 4shael, the LG Nexus comes with a 1.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU, an Adreno 320 GPU, 2 GB of RAM, 8GB of non-expandable storage, 768×1184 320 ppi display, an 8 megapixel camera, Jelly Bean MR1 and Kernel 3.4.0. 4shael also says they don’t think the prototype they have has access to has LTE connectivity, only DC-HSPA+, and feels roughly the same size as the Galaxy Nexus in hand.
The software version, camera, display, CPU, GPU and RAM don’t come as much of a surprise, but the lack of LTE connectivity and limited storage do. It does make sense for Google to carry a version of the LG Nexus with only 8GB of storage to keep cost down, but if they don’t provide an option for 16 or 32GB models they could be in trouble.
4shael left before answering any questions, but promised to be back to answer more along with hopefully providing a video of the LG Nexus in action. We’ll be keep an eye on the thread started for the device in hopes of hearing more. At this point we don’t have any reason to think 4shael would be lying, especially since we know that these phones are making the rounds in the wild.
