LG Nexus 5 seemingly coming in two versions


It is no secret that we could be only a few weeks away from the release of the Nexus 5, and the rumoured handset has been at the centre of increasing number of leaks and sightings. Now following some new Wi-Fi certification the LG Nexus 5 is seemingly coming in two versions.

Over the last couple of days speculation has been mounting leading up to the release of the Nexus 5, which has included listings for cases as well as possible sightings of the device in a bar somewhere. Now two handsets that are believed to be the Nexus 5 have received Wi-Fi certification, and comes after the LG D820 and the LG D821 had been seen at the FCC.

Now though there are handsets with the model numbers of LG D820C and LG D820S, but it’s not known what the difference is between the two models. The documents do reveal that there are two LG handsets and that they will both have dual band Wi-Fi support.

Previously it has been claimed that the LG D820 was going to be the Nexus 5, and the only difference between these two handsets could simply be the storage size. Recent speculation has suggested that the handset will be officially unveiled on October 14th along with the latest version of the Android operating system, 4.4 KitKat.

Until any new handset takes to the stage at a special Google press event the rumours and speculation will continue, but we can expect to see invites being sent out at anytime now.

Would have you preferred a different manufacturer to produce this year’s Nexus smartphone?

    I can live with lg. They make them well and keep em cheap. I hate the radios on my nexus 4. I mean. Its still a phone. Right? Lol. Would have liked to seen a moto or waterproof z1. But can they keep that cost down? I’m sure that’s what it boils down to. High end device at half price. Are the other companies software gimmicks worth that much?

    I was skeptical of the Galaxy Nexus, cause I feel Samsung phones are a bit too flimsy. Too plastic. Previous to my Galaxy Nexus, I had the G1 and then the DroidX; so I like tough phones. So when I had the chance of getting the Nexus of the time (Galaxy Nexus) I just decided to trust Google. They picked Samsung for a reason, right? And it was a good device. Then, LG, who I perceived as having even lower manufacturing standards than those of Samsungs. I got the Nexus4, and I gotta say, its the best phone I’ve owned. I love the thing and I recommend it to everyone who asks me. The largest carrier in Mexico (Telcel) carries it, and even getting it from them, its still completely unlocked with NO bloatware. GREAT value (cost/benefit). So, now I’m excited to see the new Nexus, and if it is another LG device, good for them. LG has earned it, apparently.
