LG Optimus G Nexus specs and features leaked, release date set for mid-November

by: Chris SmithOctober 5, 2012

Just earlier today we looked at a report detailing an LG Optimus G Nexus early hands-on experience, and now we have a new leak. This time around we’re looking at leaked specs and features for the handset, but considering that the smartphone is based on the high-end Optimus G, we won’t act so surprised.

After all, it’s only logical to assume that the Optimus G and Optimus G Nexus will share a variety of specs and features. Until the latter is confirmed, we’ll take a look at today’s specs sheet provided by MoDaCo.

According to the publication, here are the confirmed specs of the smartphone:

  • The device is based on the Optimus G but doesn’t look the same
  • Updated Android release (currently 4.2)
  • Quad Core Snapdragon S4 processor
  • 2GB RAM
  • 1280 x 768 True-HD IPS screen
  • On screen soft keys (of course)
  • 8 Megapixel Camera
  • No microSD slot
  • 8GB and 16GB versions only (at least initially)
  • Non-removable battery
  • Wireless charging built in
  • The retail name of the device is yet to be decided.

As you can see for yourself, there clearly are a few interesting revelations in the list above, assuming the list is correct. But considering that the device is said to be released in mid-November, chances are that we’re going to see more and more leaks as we move closer to the launch window.

An image of the LG Optimus G Nexus (which is what we’re going to continue calling it for lack of a better alternative) is not yet available, but we can only expect for both blurred and official images to get leaked in due time.

Anyone excited about this first LG Nexus handset? Are you planning to buy one, or are you waiting for other Nexuses to be unveiled?

    Is it the standard s4 processor or the s4 pro?

    • Micmaster

      It is S4 Pro, my next phone definitely, dreams come true :D

    I dont like this….why not stay with samsung? :/

  • True_Neutral

    The 8MP camera and non-removable battery are downers, but at least the rest of the spec is top-end. Can’t wait!

    Samsung is garbage, that is why. Sure, they have sold tons and tons, but doesn’t make them great phones.

    • Hey dont talk about Samsung…It have Note 2 ,the most powerful mob in the world…..

  • Tatsuya

    Low storage limitation again…
    Getting tired of Google.

    I hope they didnt work on a design with LG. The Optimus G is an ugly phone.

    • ImpecableDesign

      I agree, but I can’t exactly pinpoint why. I think it has to do with the top, bottom, and screen size proportions. The iPhone has more symmetry and which makes it appear nicer. Also the back looks kinda cheepy and similarly as uninspiring as the front. FWIW, I saw another rumor site say that Google will be changing the physical look & feel for the Nexus model.

    Snapdragon s4? Sign me up! 16g internal may be small for some, but it’s enough for me. And 4.7″ is the perfect size for a screen

  • John

    8gigs is not even an option…..16 is not an option since they have no micro sd 32 should be standard for all phones.

  • Kok Hean

    My next phone.

  • Jack ReachAround

    I dunno what I’m waiting for… but going by the specs, I don’t think this is it.
