Re: Nexus 5 leak?

I was just thinking the other day that it would be cool if they made it like a smaller version of the Nexus 7, then this pops up and seems to confirm it.

It's looking like this is what I'm going to upgrade to from my Gnex

And if Verizon doesn't carry it, then sayonara big red

True. Such a strange move

Oh well, marketing is marketing I guess. I do think the willy wonka style "golden ticket" contest is a pretty cool idea lol.

At least something is around the corner. I'm curious. Hopefully at the same price point.

lol, people buy notes, 5.2 isn't that big, phones are alternative to tablets now, I'm jealous, when someone pulls their 5.5 incher out and I look at my 4.8, all of a sudden I feel inadequate.

As is often the case with smartphone leaks, the first one opens the floodgates to a wave of others. It looks like Google's next Nexus device, which most are calling the Nexus 5, will be no different. As discovered by S4gru, a smartphone manufactured by LG has appeared on the FCC's site with enough detail to associate it with the device that Google itself leaked in a KitKat promo video earlier in the week. The documents include a photo of the inside of the rear cover and its dimensions, including a very large hole for the camera, match up quite well. Unfortunately for people who need to swap batteries, the back is "not supposed to be removed."
More importantly, as Engadget notes, this device is being tested for a wide array of wireless standards, including support for LTE that should work on AT&T, T-Mobile, or Sprint. It also supports the usual set of HSPA and GSM bands along with CDMA and EVDO Rev A. If this device pans out, that will mean that Google will have finally righted the wrong it made with the Nexus 4 - namely putting proper support for LTE on its flagship Android phone. With both T-Mobile and AT&T accepting unlocked devices on their LTE networks, it only makes sense.
As for other specs on this device, all we know for sure it that it looks significantly larger than the Nexus 4. With that device selling out in the US Google Play Store and Google revealing the new name for Android 4.4, it's not a small jump to assume that this purported Nexus 5 will be announced fairly soon.

Hmm, this was the big question mark for me. CDMA or not. I was thinking there might be a chance there would be, since they did a Verizon enabled nexus 7. Maybe it will be the case.

We'll see if they will do a simultaneous launch on all 4 major carriers. I'm doubting it, but who knows.

Just read through the anandtech article. No inclusion of LTE band 13, which is what verizon uses. I was planning on having to switch off them anyways, so I'm fine with it at this point. Getting tired of their shenanigans lol

Looks like it'll be either T-Mobile or the new AT&T prepaid plans (Aio wireless) for me. They look pretty good.

Nestle. And supposedly they paid nothing.

Quote:
But as absurd as that is, what’s more mind-boggling is that Nestle didn’t pay Google a single penny for the placement. ”I can confirm that no money was exchanged,” a Google spokesperson told VentureBeat by e-mail earlier today. ( The spokesperson also confirmed that it was Google, not Nestle, that initiated the deal.

Re: Nexus 5 leak?

Google doesn't pay for "droid" either, that was mostly Verizon, and some Motorola.

Actually, the phone is smaller than a nexus 4 according to the FCC filing and the screen is 4.96" diagonal. Don't be so quick to judge.

Other interesting info:

" What's interesting about the LG-D820 approval is that it includes almost all of the bands you'd want for a North American SKU that covers LTE, CDMA, and HSPA+ for AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint. There's no Verizon LTE (Band 13) in this band coverage. Non inclusion of Verizon LTE banding in an upcoming Nexus isn't much of a surprise after relationship issues following Galaxy Nexus (CDMA/LTE), inclusion of Sprint is a bit of one, but not as much (Google Voice, Google Wallet)."



" The breakdown is LTE***160;on bands: 2, 4, 5, 17, 25, 26, 41 (1 and 7 are probable as well, FCC only lists what's relevant inside the USA), WCDMA on bands: 2, 4, 5, and CDMA2000 1x/EVDO on band classes 0, 1, and 10 (800, 1900, 900 MHz). There's also 802.11a/b/g/n/ac (the screenshot above doesn't call out 802.11ac but it is explicitly mentioned and tested in the appropriate sections of the test reports) as well as BT 4.0 LE (Bluetooth smart ready). Inclusion of CDMA2000 1x/EVDO in and of itself is surprising, and the device includes the necessary LTE banding for Sprint, of course CDMA2000 is also relevant in a few other markets in combination with LTE.***160;"

Re: Nexus 5 leak?

Oh, and also the filing also supports the Snapdragon 800 SoC rumor, the latest gen processor that will handle LTE-A and VoLTE quite nicely.

This is going to be awesome if they can sell it unlocked at $300 or hell even $400.
