Further LG Nexus Rumors Expand On Features, Highlight Differences From Optimus G


There have been a whole mess of rumors lately about what to expect from Google as far as its Nexus lineup goes, and a good number of them have been looking to LG’s Optimus G as one model we could potentially see a new Nexus phone based on. From what we’ve heard so far, it’s clear this wouldn’t be just a renamed Optimus G, but besides a re-styled case, it hasn’t been obvious just what would be different. Some new rumored specs have just come to our attention, though, that start to show how this LG Nexus could diverge from the Optimus G.

While by and large these specs have been lining up, from the 2GB RAM to the quad-core S4, there are a few differences now apparent. These latest rumors claim the Nexus would have only 8GB or 16GB storage (with no expansion), while the Optimus G has 32GB. The other key feature we’re hearing rumored for the LG Nexus that differs from the Optimus G is support for wireless charging. That being built-in is important, as the phone’s not supposed to have a replaceable battery (neither does the Optimus G, for that matter).

While some of that’s quite disappointing, it may be a sign that Google’s looking to keep the price way down on this Nexus handset. If these rumors pan out, we’d know for sure by mid-November.
