There was trend at some point to crazy concept phones with crazy specs, but that has dwindled down lately. Well, now it’s back again courtesy of the design below, created by TheTechnoToast. We’re dealing with a Nexus handset made by LG yet again and packing some crazy futuristic specs.
This device runs Android 4.3 and features a 32 megapixel camera at the back, that’s able to shoot up to 4K resolution video. Inside the LG Nexus 5 there’s an 8 core processor, 8 GB of RAM and a 7000 mAh battery, that probably takes up the most room inside the phone. The battery is supposed to last an entire week on a single charge.
NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, LTE are all included here, as well as a removable back that’s spring loaded. The idea is that if you push the back, the glass plate will spring up and you’ll access the microSD card slot, dual SIM slots and the battery. The screen upfront is a 4.8 inch display with Full HD resolution. The Nexus 5 is slimmer than the Nexus 4 and a bit heavier. Both the front and back of the smartphone are covered in Gorilla Glass 4, unbreakable glass.
We don’t only cover concept phones here, but also some leaks, especially since some of them show spectacular designs. After all, we’re all about innovative looking handsets, right? LG Optimus G2 might just open up a new chapter in phone industrial design, as you can see through the image below.
It was published by famous Twitter account @evleaks and shows us what we can call the first true big brand edge to edge display smartphone. The device’s specs were already leaked by a Korean publication and it appears that this model packs a 5 inch Full HD LCD panel, a 2 GHz quad core Snapdragon 800 processor, Android 4.3, a 13 megapixel camera (or better) and at least 32 GB of storage.
2 or 3 GB of RAM are predicted here and the design seems to involve an edge to edge display, that basically covers the facade totally. Some people have said that this design reminds them of a Nexus phone. So, what do you make of this? LG Optimus G2 or LG Nexus 5?
We all missed Bob Freking’s work, so he’s back with a doozie: not one, not two, but three brand new Nexus concepts and they include tablets and smartphones. We gives us the new Nexus family, featuring the Nexus 8, Nexus 5 and Nexus 11, all pictured below.
The Nexus 5 is once again made by LG and it features a 5 inch Full HD True IPS+ display, a 1.9 GHz quad core Snapdragon 800 processor and Adreno 330 GPU. There’s also a 2 megapixel camera on board upfront and a 13 megapixel one at the back. That one has flash and this model is expected to run the latest version of Android, probably Android 4.3. There’s also an estimated price of $299 for the 16 GB version.
Then comes the Nexus 8, made by ASUS and packed in a more compact format. The device features an 8 inch 1200 x 1920 display (IPS LCD), a 1.7 GHz quad core Snapdragon 600 CPU and Adreno 320 GPU. There’s also a combo of two cameras (3 MP back, 2 MP front) and the latest version of Android included. Price tag? $199 for 8 GB.
Finally, there’s the bigshot, the Samsung Nexus 11. This one uses a 11 inch 1600 x 2560 Super PLS display, a 1.8 GHz quad core Tegra 4 CPU and 72 core Nvidia GeForce GPU. The cams combo include a 5 MP back snapper and a front 2 megapixel newcomer. This model runs the latest version of Android and the 16 GB unit starts at $399. Between all of these, the Nexus 8 sounds truly good for me. What about you?
There’s a Twitter account out there called @evleaks, that publishes hardcore leaks of phones and tablets ahead of their launch and now the same source has taken to Facebook and published a very interesting picture. It depicts a mystery LG smartphone, that might as well be the LG Optimus G2.
Some say it could be the rumored LG Nexus 5, although I kind of doubt that. Well, this model does look quite nice and it has an usual earpiece design, an elongated body and minimalistic bezel. It may resemble the Nexus 4 just a little bit and people posting comments on the Facebook page of the leakster have juggled some specs for this model.
They say it could be a Nexus 5 handset with a 4.7 or 6 inch Full HD OLED display, maybe a flexible screen, a Snapdragon 800 processor at 2 GHz and Key Lime Pie support. We knew that the LG Optimus G2 was coming soon and we’ve heard that it may be so scary thin, that its volume buttons and on/Off buttons were placed at the back… What do you think?
The folks of Mobileaks.nl have published a supposedly official render of the Nexus 5, once again rumored to be made by LG, although odds are very small of that happening. I must say I’m not a huge fan of this design, that I consider bulky, not modern and its upper and lower side don’t seem inspired at all.
They’re too sharp and rounded at the same time, if you know what I mean. Also, the placement of the back speaker is kind of odd and the camera area looks… old. I can’t seem to find the earpiece at the front of the device and the volume buttons are totally unrealistic. The only appealing thing about this model, aside from the strange inclusion of the Walkman app are its high end specs.
Those include a 5.2 inch OLED display with a Full HD resolution, 3 GB of RAM, a 16 megapixel camera with OmniVision sensor and a 2.1 megapixel front camera. There’s also a 3300 mAh battery inside and a Snapdragon 800 quad core CPU at 2.3 GHz as the ticker. I’m 99.99% sure that this is just a fake render… how about you?
D. Saif sent us a render he did of the upcoming Google Nexus 5 phone, that he imagined as a common project of the biggest companies in the Android biz. Sharp, LG, HTC, Sony and Motorola joined hands for this, supposedly. The result is a super smartphone that runs Android 5.0 and is pictured below.
The Nexus 5 features an Ultra HD display, an Ultrapixel camera, Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and 256 GB of storage. There’s also 4 GB of RAM on board and a huge 5000 mAh battery. The screen is made by LG and Sharp together and it’s a 5 inch 720p, or a 5.5 inch 1080p display or finally a 4K 6 inch one. Each aspect of the specs is customizable according to D. Saif.
Thus, you can go with either an 8 ultrapixel or 16 ultrapixel camera and with 64/128/256 GB of storage. There’s also a version with 2 GB of RAM and one with 4 GB. Finally, there’s a model with a 3000 mAh battery and one with a 5000 mAh battery. As far as design goes, this Nexus 5 is all display, with minuscule bezels. What do you think?
For some reason LG has been staying away from the Windows Phone playing field, dominated by Nokia and tested by HTC and Samsung every once in a while. Their first WP devices were decent and they even had a fashion phone at some point… Well, here comes the LG Premier, a Windows Phone 8 concept phone created by Mohammad Mahdi Azimi.
He has given us no specs, so there’s plenty of room for speculation. A quick analysis shows us that there’s no camera flash and that the device is massive, so I’m thinking about a sort of Samsung Galaxy Grand rival here, maybe a 5 inch affordable model. Also, it may be intended for the ladies, considering the exotic color choice at the back. Notice the dotted pattern, that reminds me of the LG Optimus G and Nexus 4.
I can’t really tell if the back is all glass or… leather, since that’s what the texture reminds me of. While I do like the shape of the LG Premier concept phone, I’m not a big fan of the very small Windows Phone buttons and consider the call/end call buttons useless nowadays. And now some imaginary specs: 5 inch 480 x 800 pixel S LCD display, dual core Snapdragon processor, 1 GB of RAM, 5 megapixel camera, 8 GB of storage. How about it?
The LG Optimus G Pro is the upcoming flagship from LG, a phablet that’s coming at Mobile World Congress 2013 and it has some impressive specs. It was also leaked in a picture, but it was pretty blurry, so YugaTech created its own version of a render. Here’s the pic:
This model’s back reminds me of the HTC One X, while the front seems typical for a high end modern day smartphone with phablet design. The Home button is interesting to say the least, but I can’t figure out why they made it so wide. And now for the official specs: LG Optimus G Pro will feature a 5.5 inch 1920 x 1080 Full HD IPS LCD screen, with a super thin bezel, that will widen a bit at the top and the bottom for the Home button and front camera.
The handset packs a 1.7 GHz quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot and LTE radio. At the back there’s a 13 megapixel rear camera and upfront we’ve got a 2 megapixel camera with HD filming abilities. There should also be a 3140 mAh battery and a strange new HDMI and RGB combined output.
With all the recent rumors about a supposed LG Nexus 5, it’s time to have a glance into the future flagship phone made by LG. To do that we have a look at the LG Optimus Prime designed by Rahul Sharma and teased in the video below and pictures, too, as well as specs. And now I must explain the title: a while before the Galaxy S III was launched, it was rumored to be a 4.8 inch smartphone with 3D display and quad core CPU…
Well, now LG Optimus Prime comes in and fulfills that dream. The device uses a 4.8 inch Super AMOLED 3D screen with Clear Black Display and Corning Gorilla Glass. It supports a 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution and packs a quad core Snapdragon S4 Pro 1.7 GHz processor, with Adreno 320 GPU and 2 GB of onboard RAM. The body of the LG concept phone is very thin, at 6.65 mm in waistline. At the back we’ve got a 21 megapixel Carl Zeiss camera, with Vario Tessar technology, autofocus, Pureview technology and dual Xenon flash.
No way that Nokia would allow LG to use those, but let’s dream! We also get augmented reality, NFC, HDMI, DLNA and even a projector on the LG Optimus Prime. The battery here is a 3000 mAh unit and the projector is a HD one with 25 lumens capability. Be sure to watch the video below and rest assured that we’ll unveil more details about the handset once we receive more pictures of it!
As you know, the entire Internet is flooded with leaked pictures and specs of the upcoming LG Optimus Nexus phone aka the Mako aka the LG Nexus 4. Codenamed E960, this model is actually a brother of the LG Optimus G model, with some slight modifications. Taking all of the leaked photos into account, Bob Freking created the following “press” picture:
LG Google Nexus features a 1.5 GHz quad core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, with Adreno 320 GPU, 2 GB of RAM and a 4.7 inch display with 768 x 1184 pixel resolution. The odd resolution is generated by the on screen virtual Android buttons, that take up some of the screen estate. At the back of the phone there’s an 8 megapixel camera, so the 13 MP shooter of the Optimus G is not kept this time. The OS of choice is Android 4.2, that may or may not be Key Lime Pie. It may end up as a new flavor of Jelly Bean…
People are complaining about the fact that the LG Nexus 4 is rumored to only offer 8 GB of storage and no microSD card. That would be a huge mistake from its maker and I doubt it would happen. Rumors also say we’ll see this smartphone launched on October 29th, so there’s a little bit more waiting. Let’s enjoy Bob Freking’s render till then!
