I would pick this over the galaxy note 3 if this is actually coming to sprint. Fingers crossed

Especially with a $299 price point from the Google play store. I'd be all over it.

Here's an updated comparison! Didn't expect this to blow up when I was in class!

Oh and guys remember when Google filed to use BRS / EBS frequency for a private wireless network earlier this year? Now we know why!

So far Engadget, Verge, DroidLife, phandroid, phonedog, anandtech and Mobilesyrup has given s4gru credit for the story. Everyone else gave it to Engadget (which is fine since they credited back here)

I tipped off the tier 1 blogs and made sure to prominently mention S4GRU, so I'd hope they give proper credit. Dieter Bohn was particularly classy in mentioning S4GRU in the second sentence. Engadget was the first to act just a few minutes after I gave them the tip so they seem to have the most linkbacks.

Hope they don't hold the trend with the same garbage baseband chipsets.

It's made by LG, so I hope they won't use the crappy VIA chipsets.

2300mah batter seems pretty small especially for the screen size and the fact that its not removable

I agree, but Nexus batteries have always been small. Gotta get the bill of materials down to meet that $300 price point I guess... ;-)

But the dimensions are way off for the size of the device seen in the video.

By comparison the Nexus 4 is 133.9 x 68.7 mm

The LG D820 alleged Nexus 5 is 131.9 x 68.2 mm

 

Is it common practice for manufacturers to send prototypes to the FCC and make changes to the final design?

As long as they do not change internals in the way that would require devices to be recertified by the FCC ie operating bands or whatever else the FCC looks for.

Oh yeah look at that. Well I hope it is really the smaller size.

LGOG is 131.9 mm x 68.9 mm so this would be actually slightly narrower & exactly the same height.

I think your missing my point.

The device leaked in the KitKat video looked to be similarly sized as Optimus Pro / Note 2.

The Wall may crumble under the load. Our article is getting over 500 hits per hour tonight. We may top 4000 views by midnight MDT.

Is that a good thing or a bad thing? Or both?

Yeah I hadn't seen your post when I posted... I agree, I thought from the picture it would be using the panel from the G Pro but evidently not. Or something doesn't add up.

Well I was dead set on the Note 3.. up until this surfaced. Anxious to see what gets announced!

 

Edit: Some one at MacRumors put the dimensions together and put out a quick drawing. Looks completely plausible and enticing.

No AJ, that's your article (with credit given to Tim Yu, as well). Thank You, Sir!  :tu:

I was set on the LG G2 but, this through a wrench in my gears. However, I'm glad to have this (tough) decision to make.

    • Edit: Disregard, what I previously posted here was a previously starred bug.  
    • This convert site is funny to me. T-Mobile reserved a pole at this same intersection for a small cell in Dec 2017, finally installed it in July 2020, only for the small cell to be planned for decommissioning a little less than 1 and a half years later thanks to a convert site. It looks like the roof was rebuilt/re-enforced for the new setup too. The roof line is a little higher at the front of the building with new bricks.
    • Or, more simply, have a physical SIM that I can just move from one device to another.  Problem [already] solved.  Carrier doesn't have to be involved at any point in the process. I'll be among many (I'm sure) who will be glad to know if you see it.  Here in the DC area, Dish hasn't really done much yet.  I think I've seen some Dish gear around Richmond, but nothing here. - Trip
    • I like VICE.  They actually report on news no one else is willing to report. A lot of the places they go no sane person would want to be there.  They put their life on the line in many cases to get a story. From stories about the avocado wars in Mexico, being in the front lines against ISIS and Ukraine, to being embedded with terrorist organizations.   FAA might have some conspiracy 5G nut on their team or something.  At work ever year we have some one come in and say "hey, can you turn off the WIFI in my room? I don't want its radiation".  It doesn't make sense and their reasoning is always uneducated conspiracy. I can see someone coming into my office and acting crazy over C band disregarding everything else.
    • I think on esims it depends on how they implement it. If you can freely activate them on one phone while having it loaded on many that would be great.   I will let you know when I see Boost Mobile native 5g live here. So far no sign of even the plmn being active which I figure will be my first indicator. I look at changing networks with the TNX Sim and seem to get a full list of all carriers and their alternate plmns.
