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.

Nope, MSM8974.

 

...aka Snapdragon 800 to the commoners.

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.

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.

    • Yet another "Carrier" move: T-Mobile users have only now discovered sneaky change made in May
    • Went to Hurricane Harbor again this past weekend, this time testing Verizon and T-Mobile. In my testing, Verizon is now the fastest carrier, at least on the Hurricane Harbor sector. Despite it being pretty overcast on Saturday with temperatures in the mid-80's the park was at full capacity.  Verizon had 160MHz of n77 and T-Mobile now has 160MHz of n41. On LTE I was seeing speeds in the range of 50-100Mbps while T-Mobile's LTE on was completely swamped, barely crossing 3Mbps. While both carriers only have a single high capacity sector (facing Great Adventure, Verizon benefits from having CBRS deployed on all sectors. This is an extra 60-100MHz of capacity that T-Mobile doesn't have. Maybe when T-Mobile gets around to deploying their C-band we'll see a boost in speeds again to be more competitive with Verizon. On the 5G side of things, T-Mobile's speeds were just over half that of Verizon.  That said, neither carrier was slow and I had zero issue using Xbox Cloud Gaming on T-Mobile despite their weaker upload speeds and higher ping.  
    • I think the newer ones have signal bars on them. I took a photo of one in Red Hook a month or two ago that had the same design.
    • Well well, looks like we found one of the two Link5G towers that might actually have 5G. Notice anything different? This one has the same signal bars icon that the pole mounted 5G oDAS units have. It’s in Chinatown at East Broadway and Forsyth St. It’s impossible to tell what carrier it is, though.
