If the Korea Times is correct then LG will produce back-to-back Google Nexus devices, a title that only Samsung has claimed. To date there’s been the HTC Nexus One, Samsung Nexus S, Samsung Galaxy Nexus, and the LG Nexus 4.
The report stated that “Currently, the consumer electronics arm of LG Group is working with Internet-giant Google to make another Nexus-branded Google Android smartphone. LG is seeking to expand its partnership in TVs and future businesses, such as Google Glass.”
Speculation surfaced online a few weeks ago of what specs the the pure Google device, currently codenamed the LG “Megalodon,” might have: a 5.2-inch display with a 1920×1080px resolution, a quad-core 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 3GB RAM, 16/32/64GB of internal storage, a whopping 16MP camera, a 2.1 MP front-facing camera, and a 3300 mAh battery.
There’s no word on when the next Nexus will be announced, though previous rumours pointed toward October 2013. Hopefully we’ll hear more at the upcoming Google I/O conference in a couple weeks.
