It’s well rumored that LG is making their own Nexus device on behalf of Google, but whether or not it’s the only Nexus device that we’ll see this fall is still up for questioning. However, more specs were leaked today about LG’s rumored and upcoming Optimus Nexus that are actually quite shocking and not what you’d expect.
Specifically, the Optimus Nexus is said to come in 8GB and 16GB flavors, but there will not be a microSD card slot anywhere on the phone, nor will there be a removable battery. This definitely comes at surprised to us since it’s almost a standard that all Android devices come with a microSD slot and a removable battery nowadays — two features that are huge selling points for Android. However, we might see wireless charging capabilities in the Optimus Nexus, so not all is lost.
We already know the Optimus Nexus will be based on LG’s Optimus G that we heard about a few weeks ago. The upcoming Nexus device is said to have most of the same specs as the Optimus G, including a 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 2GB of RAM, and an 8MP rear camera, all packed in tightly under a 4.7-inch 1280×768 True-HD IPS display.
The Optimus Nexus is said to hit the market mid-November. The Optimus G is already confirmed for AT&T, no price or availability details were disclosed, but if rumors are true, we should be seeing it sometime next month. Hopefully we’ll see the next Nexus device by then as well.
