The Upcoming LG Nexus: What We Know Up To This Point & What We Can Expect


As we patiently wait for October 29th to arrive, we are expecting to see at least one addition to the Nexus family, the LG Nexus. After countless leaks for the past month and much speculation, we think we may finally have a somewhat concrete idea of what the upcoming device giving the true “Google Experience” will offer. The device will as always, introduce new technology— while making existing technology a little bit better. Read on past the break to have a brief breakdown of what is known and what we can expect in this new superphone.




What we do know



What we expect



What we’re stumped on

  • The true storage size of the LG Nexus. By all indications, the newest Nexus will likely possibly have a measly 8GB of onboard storage— something we can’t believe nor fathom. It’s no secret that Google doesn’t like the use of expandable storage on its flagship devices, but it certainly can’t expect users to be happy with only that amount of space. If it is, perhaps Google is trying to make a push for its Google Drive cloud service. But then again, Google is a champion for its customers and more importantly— the development community, so it surely must be offering at least 16GB of storage space, right? If we can see Google do that with its Nexus 7 tablet, we can see it done on the upcoming LG Nexus. The problem is we just won’t know with Google until the 29th of October arrives.
  • The exact name of the device. We’ve seen everything from the LG Nexus to the Optimus Nexus to the Nexus 4. We’ll go ahead and place our bets on the LG Nexus though.


So there you have it kids. A general breakdown of what you’ll see in the newest Google Experience device. Oh and don’t forget— we’ll be at the October 29th event, so we’ll be sure to give every last tidbit of the device. But in the meantime, stay tuned with us as we’ll continue to provide leaks and info in the next week leading up to the official announcement.

    I really wish they don’t play stupid and release a 8gb version… Specially since they’re releasing now a 32gb of the nexus 7, which in my way to see shows they acknowledge the need for bigger internal space…

    • Saif

      If they release 8 GB and price it 300$ then it’s fine ..

      • Ricardo Moura Rocha

        I agree, but I’d like an option for the 32gb too…

  • Richard

    Note that the new Chromebooks come with 100GB of Google Drive storage…

    After what Verizon did to the last Galaxy Nexus they should NEVER SEE ANOTHER ONE.. Sprint always plays nice with Google and has a great relationship so they will eventually ser one. That leaves Tmobile the original launch partner of android and you know Google will make sure the Nexus 4 works on Tmobile and it’s HSPA PLUS 42MPS network. And At&t will see it too. Plain and simple cdma Lte networks are useless.
