Nexus 5 aimed at LG: G2-inspired, near-borderless display

Nexus 5 aimed at LG: G2-inspired, near-borderless display

The next device in line for Google's Nexus smartphone lineup would (once again) appear to belong to LG if Vietnam-based media reports are correct. Straight from author Cuhip of Tinhte, the same fellow who brought on the X Phone tour video leak well before the rest of the world earlier this year, comes word of an LG-made Nexus 5 quite similar to a report SlashGear published earlier this month. The big difference here is the (unofficial) confirmation of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800, previously suggested to be a bit too expensive to exist in a Nexus 5 would that it were to keep the pricing structure of the Nexus 4.

LG G Pad specifications tip 8.3-inch Full HD Plus beast

LG G Pad specifications tip 8.3-inch Full HD Plus beast

This week we've had our fair share of Android surprises in the world of future LG releases, coming up sharp with the LG G Pad, a device teased last month in a trademark filing and appearing here in a full specifications leak. This device has had its innards dropped by TechBlog, a Greek publication that says the machine will be able to fit in a user's back pocket - in other words: this is no LG G-Slate. We'll have to be the judge of that as this tablet rings in first with an 8.3-inch display - bigger than the average pocket already.

Nexus 5: tipped for Motorola, but should it be Sony?

Nexus 5: tipped for Motorola, but should it be Sony?

This week there's been suggestion that the next Google Nexus device would be made in collaboration with Motorola - a team-up that's been expected since the two companies became one last year. In the completion of the Motorola Mobility acquisition by Google, the latter company was pressed on whether they'd give the former special treatment in the form of Nexus device preference - they quickly suggested that the ASUS-made Nexus 7 was proof of non-preferential treatment. Fast-forward to August of 2013 (the month in which this article is posted) and Motorola's first release as "a Google company" is the Moto X.

ASUS plans to enter US smartphone market in 2014

ASUS has enjoyed a variety of successes with its Android tablets, perhaps most notable among them being the Transformer series and the Nexus 7. Despite this, it has little presence in the US's smartphone market, something the maker aims to change in the coming months. Speaking to the folks over at All Things D, ASUS's chairman said the company is looking at entering the stateside smartphone market in 2014.

Nexus 7 2013 Review

Nexus 7 2013 Review

The original Nexus 7 arguably marked a turning point in Android tablets, Google finally doing what critics had long been demanding, and wading into the slate market with an own-brand option. With a screen size that undercut the iPad by several inches - and pre-empted the iPad mini by several months - the Nexus 7 also fought hard on price, with razer-thin margins and ruthless specification trimming on the ASUS-made tablet keeping the starting point at under $200. Time - and tablets - wait for no one, though, and with the iPad mini on the scene it was high time for Google and ASUS to rework the Nexus 7. The second-generation, 2013 version promises to be more powerful, more grown-up, and just as affordable, but has Google done enough? Read on for the full SlashGear review.

Nexus 7 new vs old: the big pixel boost

This week Google reveals the next generation in their Nexus 7 tablet line, keeping the name and amping up the display resolution to nearly double that of Samsung's newest effort. While this device takes the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 to the cleaners with its display alone, the most important comparison we can make at this moment is between the Nexus 7 and its biggest competitor - its predecessor!

Moto X pricing tipped in sub-Nexus 4 snub

Moto X pricing tipped in sub-Nexus 4 snub

With Google's next big push for smartphone dominance coming in soon with the Moto X, it would appear that nothing looks better than cutting down their own best-selling smartphone in the low-cost Nexus 4. If LG's wares are any sort of indicator of what a solid smartphone can do when given the right price tag, Google would be both wise and unwise at the same time to attack it - but that's the tip coming in this afternoon, right on the heels of the official invite for this machine's first unveiling.

Nexus 7 2 gets alledged early hardware fondle

Nexus 7 2 gets alledged early hardware fondle

The ASUS-made Nexus 7 2 - also known as the reboot of the original 7-inch tablet - appears to have had a collection of up-close photos and video leak this afternoon. At this point in time we're at least a few weeks out from a full launch of this device, while the existence of the hardware itself hasn't yet been confirmed by Google, ASUS, or anyone in-between. This machine appears to take on an appearance that's similar to the original, coming here instead with a slimmer facade and a landscape-aimed back rather than its original portrait angle.
