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?
Earlier this week LG denied Nexus 5 involvement, which was expected, but sources have apparently confirmed that at least some sort of Nexus 5 prototype has been finished and is in the testing phases by LG. This doesn’t mean the next Nexus will necessarily be from LG, but what they’d like to offer has been made, and is being shown to top Google execs like CEO Larry Page.
The information mentioned above is nothing but a rumor at this point, but the site has been correct in the past on multiple leaks from Korea. At least according to UnwiredView. According to them the next-gen Nexus 5 has been under testing for the past month, already shown to Google, and is picking up steam. However, there’s absolutely no other details that gives us a glimpse of hope or a release window.
The device is under extreme security conditions, and leaks probably won’t be happening anytime soon of the new flagship device. The report goes on to mention that Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie will indeed be coming later this year, and we could see a release of both the Nexus 5 and Android KLP in October – a year after the Nexus 4 hit the streets.
We’ve seen an unknown LG device leak recently that could be their next Optimus G2, or the Nexus 5, but for now we’ll have to wait and see.
