article imageGoogle Nexus 5 to be continued as the LG G2?

By Milton Este     Jul 23, 2013 in Technology
The much-anticipated Google Nexus 5 is still in murky waters as no one is sure whether Google will be partnering with LG in making this device.
The Nexus 4, a smartphone featuring high-end specs and a low price, sold out within minutes after its release. Its initial sales hit around the 400,000 mark with more, approximately one million, produced and on its way.
Because of the Nexus 4 success, it is assumed that Google will continue working with LG in producing the Nexus 5. However, it looks like the phone may be rebranded to the LG Optimus G2 line-up in efforts to also promote the LG Optimus series. Except, LG is dropping the Optimus name and going for the premium 'G' name line instead.
While there are many rumored specs out there already, there is just no way to be certain of what the LG G2 will be equipped with. With that said, there are some things to note. Back when the Nexus 4 was first released, it was equipped with the top of the line industry standards.
It was a low cost device equipped with hardware that was competing against the Apple iPhone and the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. With that said, can the same be predicted for the Nexus 5 or LG G2?
The wait is not long as LG plans on revealing the device on August 7, 2013 at the Lincoln Center in New York, at 11 a.m. PT. If LG is in fact equipping itself with the latest specs, consumers will be able to experience Android 4.2.2, the latest version not available on the majority of current smartphones.
As for the pricing, LG may not be influenced by Google's high-end low cost model and may step up the curve to retail it competitively with the current smartphone prices especially when they are gaining a clear advantage with slumping Samsung Galaxy S4 sales.
