LG Nexus 5 scores GCF certification showing LTE with 150Mbps speed

Following the Bluetooth SIG appearance it made earlier today, the LG Nexus 5 has scored Global Certification Forum (GCF) certification, revealing that it indeed offers high-speed LTE. The information is available via the GCF database, where the Nexus 5 is shown supporting LTE UE Category 4 with speeds up to 150Mbps download, the fastest in the category.

According to the certification, the LG Nexus 5 features support for LTE 2600(B7)/2100(B1)/1800(B3)/850(B5)/800(B20) MHz, W-CDMA 2100(I)/1900(II)/1700(IV)/900(VIII)/850(V) MHz, and GSM 1900/1800/900/850MHz. This represents the LG-D821 model of the LG handset, the same one seen in the Bluetooth SIG appearance mentioned above.

Word has it the handset will be officially unveiled on October 15, the same date that HTC is said to be dishing info on its HTC One Max. Also recently leaked was word that the Nexus 5 will have an "always listening" mode, something familiar to those who have taken the jump with the Moto X and recent DROID smartphones. Beyond that, many other rumored specs have also resurfaced.

Back in March, a list of specs surfaced for the LG Nexus 5 in which it is said the handset will have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 2.3GHz processor, 3GB of RAM, a 5.2-inch OLED HD 1080p display, and a rear 16-megapixel rear camera with 4K video recording. The internal storage is said to range from 16GB to 64GB, and the battery is said to be a 3300mAh capacity.
