Nexus 5 rumors coming out of Vietnam confirm LG G2 basis
Reliable Vietnamese rumor site <em>Tinhte</em> has started to <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/292006==http://www.tinhte.vn/threads/ro-ri-mot-so-thong-tin-ve-nexus-5.2156221/" rel='nofollow'>leak early details</a> about the forthcoming Google Nexus 5, expected to land in October. <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/292007== http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/03/17/lg.would.be.nexus.5.features.52.inch.display.snapd ragon.800/" rel='nofollow'>Confirming a rumor</a> dating back to March, the device will be made by LG and will be loosely based on the new <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/292008== http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/08/07/power.volume.control.buttons.13mp.camera.on.rear.o f.lg.g2/" rel='nofollow'>LG G2</a> flagship. Like the Nexus 4, which was loosely based on the LG Optimus G, the Nexus 5 will take some of the key features from the G2 including its 5.2-inch 1080p display as well as its Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.26 GHz.<br />
<br />
LG has invested $1.5 billion in two Vietnamese factories, which is likely where the rumors have originated. <em>Tinhte</em> has previously released several hands-on video reveals of prototypes and shipping models well before they have had their official reveal. The site also suggests that like the Nexus 4, which features a glass back, the Nexus 5 will also continue in this vein. However, unknown at this stage is how much more of the G2 technology will carry over. Given the sharp pricing of the Nexus 4 off-contract, it is likely that the Nexus 5 will either have to limit storage capacity or cut some specifications -- or a combination of the two.<br />
<br />
The March leak is said to have come from a Google presentation, which was at the time reviewing and evaluating potential contenders for the Nexus 5 from a number of manufacturers. The specifications for the LG device provided at the time accurately predicted what would become central features of the G2, including the 5.2-inch 1080p display and the Snapdragon 800 chip. However, purported specifications for the potential Nexus 5 device at the time also included a feature set that outstrips what LG has since revealed in its G2 range-topper.
