Forget Nexus 5 its all about Nexus 4 with KLP 5.0


We have all been talking about the Nexus 5, what it may look like and when it will release, and what smartphones will be announced at next month’s Google I/O. The two phones that stand out the most on the Android front is the Nexus 5 and the Motorola X phone; maybe it is time to forget the Nexus 5 for something no more than an update.

The next release on the list being reported by SidhTech is the 32GB Nexus 4 with LTE and internal storage, we guess that it could possibly release with a bigger processor somewhere in the region of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 and Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie aka KLP.

If the above were true then that would mean the Nexus 5 with Key Lime Pie would in fact be the Nexus 4 with KLP.

LG has major success with the Nexus 4 even though they were most of the time out of stock via the Google Play Store, Google would have to be on the ball this time if the 32GB nexus 4 with KLP and LTE was to release this year. It would no doubt come with Facebook Home pre-installed and more stock would be made to handle the mass sales department.

The nexus 4 is still relatively new but a 6-month gap for a new release is reasonable, the new Nexus 4 could have compatibility for CDMA with Verizon and Sprint, which means a bigger market.

Would you prefer the Nexus 5 to release, or does the sound of a new 32GB Nexus 4 with LTE and KLP 5.0 sound inviting enough?

    It doesn’t matter if it’s called Key Lime Pie (KLP) of Tastee Chicken Freters (TCF). If you can’t manufacture it and sell it through your Google Store un-locked, then it’s just another high-end phone.

  2. I find it highly unlikely (impossible) that Facebook Home will be preinstalled. The basis of Nexus devices is for Google to show off the latest and greatest Android completely stock and encourage developers (and users to a slightly lesser extent) to work with the new platform.

    Preinstalling Facebook Home would go against that philosophy and we have the devices like the HTC First to handle that.

    I hope we do get an updated Nexus 4 with 32GB or more internal storage and 4G+LTE support, though.

      o not wish pre -loaded crap like twitter, or facebook on my device, many of these worthless things cannot be deleted. You want to waste space, load it yourself, no preloaded social media please.

      1. Most stuff that can’t be uninstalled normally, can be removed with root. Remember that my friend.

        I take interest in CyanogenMod because of its philosophy of limiting bloat and the fact that I know that apps I want to remove are only a few taps away.

  3. I will guarantee to every human being there is that Facebook Home will not come pre-installed. If your job is to write about phones, I highly recommend you research beforehand. Nexus devises come pre-loaded with nothing but good ol’ clean stock android.

    For those of you that believe the speculation that he is spewing, I am here to tell you that he is 100% wrong. Do not worry, no Facebook Home.
