LG Nexus 5 May Be Revealed This Week

By  | 

The senior vice-prez of LG, James Fisher, told crowds at CES that the LG Nexus 4 was only the start of the crop of Google handsets it’s working on.

The Nexus range is Google’s promo tool, as it uses it to showcase its product development. Google has worked with Samsung, LG and HTC. It hasn’t collaborated with Motorola yet, and there’s also talk of a Sony Nexus.

Fisher said that LG’s collaboration with Google allowed it to launch the Nexus 4, and that there’d be more handsets to follow.

According to The Telegraph, Fisher also promised that LG would be displaying its next-gen handsets at Barcelona. Samsung’s “Nexus follow-up” was not made in collaboration with Google – it released the Galaxy S3 after its Galaxy Nexus, but it’s thought that LG is overhauling the entire Optimus range. LG is also planning to unveil more top-tier devices at MWC and later in 2013.

IB Times thinks that LG is slowing down the Nexus 4 production line to focus on newer models. It’s believed that the Nexus 4’s successor will have four 2GHz cores and Key Lime Pie.

The Nexus 4 has been lauded for its brilliant features and low price, but because demand has outstripped supply, it’s still hard to get hold of.
