LG Nexus Rumors Discuss Naming, Announcement Timing

Advertisement

It looks like the floodgates are open when it comes to rumors about the next Nexus phone(s); just hours after we shared the latest leaked specs with you, giving us a little insight into just how the supposed LG Nexus would differ from the already-revealed Optimus G, a couple new details have arrived, focusing on just how the smartphone would launch.

Those last rumors mentioned that the phone might go up for sale sometime around mid-November. Now CNET’s coming forward with a source of its own claiming that the phone will be formally announced near the end of October. That would be elbowing-in on Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 announcement, and if this expected batch of multiple Nexus models is really happening, that timing could really serve to disrupt news of the first WP8 models arriving.

Furthermore, CNET’s source claims that the phone has yet to be given an official name. The Nexus G certainly has a nice ring to it, but all bets are off when it comes to how Google will handle multiple Nexus models from different manufacturers, and it could have some all-new naming scheme it’s still working on.
