Nexus 5 rumour resurfaces suggesting LG Optimus G Pro revamp
Google's Nexus 5 could be based on LG's Optimus G Pro
More rumours have emerged which hint at a Nexus 5 on the way from Google and LG, with a heavy emphasis on the idea that it’ll be based on LG’s flagship Optimus G Pro.
The so-called Nexus 5 will run Android Key Lime Pie and be based on the company’s Optimus G Pro model.
Associated specs would include a 5-inch 1080p display and, allegedly, a 2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor.
Things then start spiralling a out of control with talk of better Twitter integration, the ability to choose faster performance or longer battery life and an 18-megapixel camera.
The display may also be a Samsung-made Super PLS, as seen on the Nexus 10, while battery power is said to be 3000mAh.
This is all according to ‘inside sources’, of course.
Weirder still, the Android Key Lime Pie build, normally said to be version 5.0, is being branded as version 4.5 by this set of rumours.
It's also implied that the device has been spotted, though it’s not clear whether we’re talking pictures or hands-on time, and it’s said to have a similar design to the Nexus 4 with a glass back and the glittery pattern.
Bizarrely, the Nexus 5 is described it as a ‘compact version of the Nexus 4’, which seems a bit odd if we’re talking about a larger 5-inch display.
The report admits that this could all be ‘water cooler’ chitchat’, which begs the question of what exactly is in the water?
One major point of contention is the fact that rumours are increasingly turning up with the suggestion of a Motorola-made Nexus X as the next flagship for Google I/O later in the year.
Could we see two Nexus phone handsets launched around the same time? Probably not, but stranger things have happened.
