Google Nexus 5 by LG Preview (LG D820)


Recommended Posts

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.

Now take the money that you would have been willing to spend on a SIM card, and donate it to S4GRU via PayPal.  You will become a S4GRU Sponsor and get access to maps and lots of great info about Netw

SUCCESS!!!  Once I had the right place, it went quick.  Here is what you need to do to get a SIM mailed to you: Call 1-888-226-7212 At first voice prompt, Enter your phone number or confirm that you

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.

...aka Snapdragon 800 to the commoners.

 

;)

 

AJ

Yes, you are exactly right. However I will avoid the term "Snapdragon 800" like the plague because it is a tier, not a specific chip.

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.

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.
