As this year’s I/O developers conferences fast approaches, so too does the possibility of the much talked-about Google Nexus 5 release date. And what’s more, further reports are now beginning to surface that the Nexus 5 could represent another partnership between Google and LG.
If true, the fruit of the two’s pairing could unquestionably become the Nexus 4 follow-up success story to end all success stories.
The 2012 launch of the LG Nexus 4 will most likely go down in history as the most significant Nexus Smartphone launch of all time. Having delivered a package of stunning high-specs and a bewilderingly low price, the LG Nexus 4 was the very dictionary definition of a game-changer in terms of offering bang-for-buck on an all new level.
So, logic would therefore dictate that such a profitable and potential-filled partnership would be an absolute travesty to waste, which would seem to tally in with ongoing reports that LG and Google will indeed be joining forces again for the Nexus 5 launch later this year.
Exactly where this leaves the rumored Motorola Nexus X is anyone’s guess, but given the likelihood of a stunning Nexus Smartphone coming our way one way or another, most will in all likelihood lose little sleep over Motorola’s absence…if accurate.
With regard to specs and features, the Google Nexus 5 really couldn’t be coming along at a more appropriate time – 5-inch screen panels having become the new standard and thus fit in perfectly with its expected moniker. As such, we’re told to expect a top-tier Smartphone with many of the same genes as the LG Optimus Pro, including a quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM and a full HD 1080p touchscreen
Perhaps most importantly of all however, the LG Nexus 4 will in all likelihood debut Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie – the OS previously expected to make its first outing with the Motorola Nexus X.
Expect the grand unveiling of the Nexus 5 at Google’s I/O event in May, which should also include an official release date announcement.
