LG’s Google Nexus smartphone specs reportedly leak [updated]

Updated Dec 19th, 2018 8:38PM EST

About a year after Google (GOOG) gave Samsung (005930) the rights to build its flagship Galaxy Nexus, it’s now rumored that LG (06657011) is next in line to build a Nexus-branded Android smartphone. According to MoDaCo, LG’s Nexus smartphone will be derivative of its  beefy Optimus G that BGR took a look at last month. MoDaCo says it has “confirmed” the following specs for LG’s Nexus: quad-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 2GB of RAM, 1280×768  resolution display, on-screen soft keys, 8-megapixel camera, 8GB and 16GB internal storage models (no microSD card slot), non-removable battery and wireless charging. In addition to the purported spec leak, MoDaCo says that it’s also possible that other manufacturers might be building Nexus smartphones as well. That jibes well with news that Google could split its Nexus smartphones among numerous handset makers. LG’s Nexus smartphone will reportedly be released in mid-November.

UPDATE: CNET has reportedly confirmed with its sources that a modified version of the Optimus G will be announced under the Nexus-branding at the end of October.
