A new report claims that LG and Google will once again partner for a Nexus smartphone to debut later this year. According to Korean news site Daum, the Nexus 5 will be based on the Optimus G2 and be equipped with similar internal components. The G2 will reportedly feature a 5.2-inch HD 1080p display, a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor and a 13-megapixel rear camera. The device is also said to include either 2GB or 3GB of RAM, LTE connectivity and a 2,700 mAh battery. LG is expected to announce its G2 flagship smartphone at a press event on August 7th, a few months before Google will debut the Nexus 5. Unlike the G2, the Nexus 5 will run a stock version of Android. Google will reportedly announce the Nexus 5 on October 5th with Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie.
UPDATE: October 5th is a Saturday, making this rumor beyond unlikely.
