So... who is looking forward to LG Nexus 5 this fall?
Now that the Moto X has proven to be quite the disappointment in terms of pricing and availability, not to mention the lackluster specs which I think most of us agree are unacceptable in a $200 contract device and the ridiculous AT&T scheme with customization, a lot of us are going to wait until the fall to see what device Google may introduce as the Nexus 4's successor.
The supposed specs of the Optimus G2, the likely Nexus 4 replacement, have been reported on for nearly two months and are absolutely outrageous: Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, a 5.2 inch 1080p IPS display, 2.3GHz Qualcomm 800, 3GB RAM and a 13MP camera. Given how the Nexus 4 I used last year (with half of this power) performed, this should be an absolute beast of a phone.
Nobody can guarantee that this device will go for sale at $299 (I wouldn't be surprised if the price was bumped slightly to, 349 or so like the Nexus 7 had its price raised to make it more profitable/less unprofitable.) The surprisingly strong sales of the Nexus 4 last year will probably lead to an increased price. As the G2 leaks ahead of its official announcement, details will continue to come out. But the signs are pointing to an October launch as the Nexus 5.
