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.

LG retro TV delivers 1080p HD and physical channel dials

If you're in the mood this week for a lovely bit of nostalgia, LG is ready to bring the heat in full begone-era fashion with a retro set with physical dials.
