Just two days after suggesting that the rumoured LG D820 was just a CDMA variant of the flagship, the LG G2
and not a Nexus 4
successor, prolific phone leaker @evleaks, has backtracked saying that it looks like he was wrong about the LG D820/ D821.
@evleaks hasn't categorically said that the phone is indeed the Nexus 5 or whatever the next generation Nexus phone would be called, but the statement
suggests that his previous tweet was not accurate, implying that it's still possible that the LG D820 was a Nexus phone.
@evleak's tweeted, "Happy to say it looks like I was wrong about the LG D820/D821..."
Recently, an alleged LG branded device with model number D820 popped up at the FCC
website and appeared to have the same dimensions as the mysterious Nexus smartphone that was spotted in the Android KitKat video released by Google.
Following that, another LG branded device popped up on a listing
on the Bluetooth SIG website. The listing revealed a device with model number LG-D821 and the device was LTE enabled. The SIG listing unfortunately did not offer anything else.
Previously, a Vietnamese site, Tinhte.vn claimed that the next Nexus smartphone - called Nexus 5 - will be based on the LG G2
, though it obviously would not be an exact copy.
Rumoured specifications of the next Nexus smartphone include a 5.2-inch full-HD display, Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.3GHz and 3GB of LPDDR3 RAM. The alleged Nexus successor is expected to run the latest Android OS, the KitKat (Android 4.4) which could be released along with the device.
