The other day we reported that not only will Google change the Nexus program, but that LG will definitely have a device dubbed the LG Optimus G Nexus. Then we had a hands-on report from a tipster who claims to have the device. Now MoDaCo posted some details of their own. According to them, the actual retail name hasn’t been decided yet, but it’s definitely based on the Optimus G although it won’t look the same.
It will definitely have Android 4.2, a 1280 x 768 True-HD IPS display, a quad-code Snapdragon S4 processsor, 2GB of RAM, 8MP camera, and a non-removable battery. You’re probably wondering about the storage, and apparently Google is going the Nexus 7 route and only offering 8GB and 16GB models. Just like the Galaxy Nexus and the Nexus 7, there won’t be a microSD slot. Now I know this is going to be a huge disappointment for most of you, but surveys show the average user doesn’t need more than 16GB of storage. By offering the 8GB version, it’s obvious Google is going to make that the aggressively priced version. If they come out with a $399 price tag (off contract), it will sell like hotcakes.
