Nexus 5 not by LG prompts name considerations pre-release


This is interesting indeed, today we have learned the white LG Nexus 4 is releasing tomorrow and now news is coming in that the Nexus 5 may not be with LG. So, if all true and LG are not working on the Nexus 4 2nd generation aka Nexus 5, who is?

Now we can sit here and ponder on the thought of who will produce this new upcoming smartphone. We would hazard a guess and say either HTC or Samsung, now there is food for thought.

According to All About Phones Won Kim, VP of LG Mobile in Europe has confirmed that LG will not have the Nexus 5 on its list, even thought the Nexus 4 was a success it still had problems on the production line and we can see this being the only reason LG is stepping away from the next smartphone in question.

We have not had official news from LG so all we have is the above source’s word, LG are still massive friends of Google but apparently they will not enter the stock Android game with the Nexus 5.

There was also a little negativity with the Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Edition, in an interview with LG and All About Phones the electronics company said they have no plans to produce or provide devices like Samsung has done.

Another shock to the system covered the LG Optimus G Pro and that it will not be going out, time will tell and we will sit here patiently waiting for LG to put emphasis on this.

Nexus 5 name considerations pre-release
No one knows the Nexus 5 release date and the above news needs verifying by LG, in the meantime we can sit here and think over who will produce the Nexus 5.

One of our readers in a previous article commented and said the Nexus 4 screen size is closer to 5-inches (4.8 to be exact), so it makes sense that the Nexus 5 is a logical name if it stayed the same size. Another reader said that the Nexus 5 should be 5.8-inches, the Nexus 4 is 4.8 so it makes sense for the next model to be 5.8.

We have had so many comments come in over the last week or so, one comment got us thinking a little; if they do decide to call it the Nexus 5 surely this would mess up the 4,7,10 naming scheme, unless the Nexus 5 releases with a 5-inch display.

Who will produce the Nexus 5?

If LG is taking a step back and not producing the Nexus 5 this will leave the door open for many other big names. The Nexus 7 tablet is in conjunction with Asus so it could be the Asus Nexus 5, then you have the Samsung Nexus 10 tablet so how about the Samsung Nexus 5? Please do let us know who you think will produce the Nexus 5?

    These phones are getting too damn big. We are going to look back at photos of people talking on 5 inch phones and laugh at it. I love my HTC One but it is honestly too big even. So I bought an HTC first to get the stock android experiance for 99 cents and I’ll tell ya that size is about right. I shouldn’t have to stretch to reach the top right of a screen. My HTC one to use it comfortably I use 2 hands. I don’t blame LG for not wanting to make a phone that big, I can’t believe HTC made a big one. We need smaller phones with better specs.
