According to recent reports, the collaboration between Google and LG will produce a device called the LG Optimus G Nexus, the newest member of the Google Nexus family of Android devices. The handset, which is considered a tweaked version of the LG Optimus G, is expected to make its official debut in November at an event held by Google and LG.
The original LG Optimus G came loaded with Android 4.0, however, this won't be the case with the G Nexus. The report claims the device will come packed with Android 4.2 and will be compatible with Google's next big update that is set for 2013, Android 5.0. The 2013 update is called Android Key Lime Pie. Google has given no word on what new features or improvements will be brought to the table with Android 4.2, but since Google is willing to launch a new Nexus device around this version of the OS, something big might be in the works.
Specifications of the LG Optimus G Nexus is be very similar to the LG Optimus G, which has a huge 4.7-inch display at 1280x768 pixels and 317 ppi. Under the hood lies an awesome quad core processor along with a 13 megapixel camera for taking sharp images. This is one of the best and most feature rich cameras in a smartphone, and should be up to the task of going head to head with the Nokia Lumia 920's PureView camera.
Some users may be unhappy about Google gearing up to a launch a newer version of Android so soon. The most popular version of Android is 2.3 Gingerbread, which features on 56% of all Android devices, Ice Cream Sandwich has 23%, and Jellybean 1.2%.
