LG Nexus Android smartphone details emerge in waves

LG's Nexus device has had a slew of details emerge recently. New details about the processor, RAM, storage space, and some limitations have made their way to the public eye today. Some of these should have Android fans quite excited, but one or two might leave a bad taste in their mouth.

First, let's talk about the good news. The LG Nexus will have a quad-core Snapdragon S4 processor and 2GB of RAM. This should offer plenty of speed and performance for even the most demanding users. It will feature a 1280X720 True-HD screen, but the size of said screen has not been confirmed at this time. It is based on the Optimus G, but does not look the same. It will feature an eight megapixel camera and have wireless charging built-in.

Of course, there are some rather baffling decisions being made with this device. First, it will only be available in 8GB and 16GB with no SD support. This is quite low when compared to other devices on the market. They also elected to go with a built-in battery, which is not the end of the world, but many users enjoy the ability to swap batteries when one dies.

No official retail name has been given to the new Nexus device as of yet. It is targeted for a mid-November release, so there is still plenty of time for that, and other key details to emerge. Keep your eyes locked to Android Community for the latest developments on the LG's Nexus device.

Have a look at our hands on with the LG Optimus G below.

    those are two MAJOR caveats! first no SD with 16GB max seems really really low. for those (myself included) that stream everything it’s not a deal breaker but not good. the second is HUGE I have an extra battery for my GSIII and love the ability to swap out and once Sprint flips the switch on LTE and I turn that on I may need a 3rd. having no ability to swap batteries on a device that will not last a full day on charge is ridiculous.

    Built in Battery? Am i to buy a new phone if the battery goes? Poor, poor design. I expect more from the nexus 2 if i am planning on giving up my current S Gal Nexus

    Well, I went from excited about this phone to bring on the next manufacturer’s version of the Nexus pretty quickly. Why is there always a catch with these devices?
