This fall, Google might break away from the tradition of Nexus lineup through launching a new device from LG in addition to phones coming from other manufacturers out there.
One handset that appears to have been almost confirmed is the LG Optimus G Nexus
, which is now said to be alive and kicking.
Based on the newly announced LG Optimus G handset, the new device is expected to provide users with a premium experience, just as other Google phones did before it.
On top of that, it is expected to hit shelves with a new flavor of Android loaded on it, namely Android 4.2, supposedly codenamed Key Lime Pie.
According to a recent article on Android and Me
, Google and LG have already showcased the device to a series of people, and one person decided to share the experience on the Internet.
The upcoming Nexus handset from LG comes with looks similar to those of Galaxy Nexus and features a silver ring around the edge of the display. The screen might be the same size of that on Galaxy Nexus, yet it is said to deliver better brightness.
Additionally, the Nexus
logo is said to be carved on the back plate, similar to the one on Nexus 7, yet with the ‘X’ featuring four colors.
The Android 4.2 loaded on this device is said to be similar to the Android 4.1.1 OS currently available on Galaxy Nexus, yet it appears capable of delivering increased fluidity.
More transitions might have been included in the update, along with improvements to its performance, though the usual set of applications from Google is still present on it.
One other detail that emerged was that the device might pack an 8-megapixel camera on the back (LG Optimus G was announced with two camera options, namely 13MP and 8MP).
Provided that previous rumors on the availability of this device starting with November this year are real, we should learn more info on this device soon, so stay tuned.
