Nexus 5

LG Nexus 5 prototype currently in testing phase

The waters are starting to get a little murky regarding Google's plans for the next true Nexus. We're not talking HTC One or GALAXY S 4 'Google Editions' but a true Nexus smartphone. Obviously they are hard at work with Motorola on the X, as confirmed last night, and even today confirmed the Nexus program is still fully under way. So what will we see next, and will it be the LG Nexus 5?

LG denies Nexus 5 involvement but confirms Android tablet for 2013

LG will not be making the "Nexus 5" for Google, one company executive has claimed, with the South Korean firm supposedly looking to in fact reduce its dependency on Android moving forward. LG's roadmap does not include the next-gen Nexus, VP of LG Eurpe Won Kim told All About Phones, describing the collaboration as a win for marketing but arguing that "we do not need such a marketing success again."

LG Nexus 4 with LTE and Key Lime Pie rumored for Google I/O

We all know the folks from Google have pretty big plans for their upcoming I/O developer event in May, but what exactly will we be seeing is still anyone's guess. We've heard and reported countless rumors but today another has appeared that takes the cake. Apparently Google will be dropping a new LG Nexus 4 (not a 5) with 32GB of storage and full support for 4G LTE. It will run Android Key Lime Pie and be revealed at Google I/O.

Dear Google: please make the HTC Nexus 5

I have a confession to make. The HTC Nexus One is still one of my favorite devices. Sure, multi-touch was a mess and Eclair was a work in progress, but I loved it. Fast forward a few years and Android has evolved, Samsung is a powerhouse, and HTC is struggling to keep their head above water. The Nexus 4 has arrived from LG, we all know what the GALAXY S 4 is about, and now everyone is focused on Motorola. That being said, I want an HTC Nexus 5.

HTC DROID DNA should’ve been the Nexus 5

Google's Nexus line is known for pushing the cutting edge and helping the evolution of Android along. Earlier this week Google's brand new LG Nexus 4 finally went up for sale. While we aren't here to talk about the lack of stock, or the immediate sold out status, we do want to mention what should've been. It should have been the HTC Nexus 5 or the HTC Nexus DNA. With a beautiful 5-inch 1080p HD display and a quad-core processor if any phone deserved the Nexus branding, the HTC DROID DNA was it.

HTC Nexus 5 rumors skip over LG

We've been hearing a lot lately about what we might see from Google as the next Nexus smartphone. With the 1 year anniversary of the Galaxy Nexus fast approaching many are anticipating another Nexus will arrive shortly. The LG Nexus 4 has been in the news plenty with rumors stating a late October announcement -- but now we're hearing the HTC Nexus 5 name again.

Verizon HTC Droid Incredible X likely launching very soon

It looks like HTC's Droid Incredible X could be coming to Verizon in the very near future. The Global Certification Forum appears to have inadvertently confirmed the existence of the device. The GCF does not confirm whether the device will be called the Droid Incredible X, but it does confirm a model number of HTC6435LVW. Other rumored names for the this device are HTC One X 5 or Google Nexus 5. With Verizon being rumored to be launching a device called the Droid Incredible X in the very near future, that seems like the most likely name for this leaked device. Either way, this phone, with its 5-inch screen, is clearly aimed at competing with the Samsung Galaxy Note II. As we reported recently, this device is rumored to have 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a 2MP front camera and 12MP rear camera, a 2500mAh battery, and 1.5Ghz S4 Pro processor from Snapdragon. It will have a 5-inch, 1080p screen for displaying HD media. If Google decides to make this device their flagship, it would be the first phablet to receive the title. As is the case with most Android devices, we do not expect Verizon to announce this device until closer to its release. Either way, this looks like an awesome device whether it receive Google flagship status or not. This and Galaxy Note II are bringing 5-inch phones to forefront in a big way. [via Engadget]
