    EXCLUSIVE: More details on LG's forthcoming Nexus


    More details are starting to appear about the forthcoming LG Nexus device! Some of which are, well, rather shocking. :)

    Although it's still not known whether it will be the ONLY Nexus to get a release, various sources are starting to fill us in on the specs. So far, we've had confirmed...

    • 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
    • 1280x768 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.

    Yup, you read that right... no microSD and max 16GB. Oh Google! :blink:

    Launch is targeted for mid-November, so there's plenty of time for more details to emerge. :) I'll be updating the post as we hear more so stay tuned!

    Good Grief. We can only hope there ARE other Nexus vendors in the pipeline. 16gb and no MicroSD is a complete FAIL.

    What size screen is the 1280x768, same as the Optimus G at 4.7"?

    Google want you to use their content ecosystem and limiting onboard storage is how they seem to have decided to encourage users to do that.

    The fact that most of that ecosystem isn't actually available outside the US doesn't seem to have registered as a problem with Google yet...

    Then they really should open up their ecosystem to more countries...It's quite boring to just have access to their apps nowadays :(

    Storage I can understand since the nexus line is supposed to be aimed at developers (or did that change??) but non-removable battery.. idiots.

    Seriously Google's war on sd cards and obsession with palpably insufficient internal storage is baffling.

    They do realise that in most of the world always on high speed unmetered connectivity doesn't exist and the cloud isn't even nearly ready for day to day right?

    Ah yes, meant to include that, 4.7".

    Lack of removable battery might kill it for me. I've not used a stock battery yet, as they are always so bloody under powered - but then again no information on what the battery capacity is yet either :)

    I'd be astonished to ever see a microSD slot on a Nexus device, so that doesn't surprise me much.

    Hmm.. 8gb and 16gb models?

    Do I smell a similar pricing model to the Nexus 7?

    Does this mean I will finally be able to afford a nexus phone?

    I, for one, am actually enticed by this news
