Nexus 5 not expected at LG’s announced May event

LG has announced that they will be holding an event on May 30, 2013, and before you get ahead of yourself and believe that it could be to do with a Nexus 5 reveal, then you could be left feeling disappointed. Looking at recent rumors we would suggest this event is to do with a new Optimus G variant.

According to Ubergizmo, the LG event is taking place in Macau in China, and is more than likely for the debut of the LG Optimus GK. This had already seen an announcement in South Korea, but could be set for a Chinese release. Let’s face it, if this were for a big release then LG would have picked a venue in the US or the UK, just as Samsung has done in the past.

The Optimus GK will have a 5-inch Full HD display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor with a clock speed of 1.7GHz, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of in-built storage, LTE and Android Jelly Bean 4.1.2. The handset will also come with a rather impressive 3,100-mAh battery and a 13-megapixel camera.

It’s obvious that the Nexus 5 would not be announced this month in China, and it’s looking less likely to make a showing during Google’s I/O event later this month. However, there could be a minor update to the Nexus 4, with the Nexus 5 release happening a little later this year.

We already know LG is working on a new handset and is expected a little later this year, but we cannot be certain if this is for the Nexus 5 or the LG Optimus 2. Whatever happens, it’s nice to see LG enjoying this comeback, and with news that the South Korean consumer electronics maker is to get in on the tablet market again, 2013 is set to be a great year for them.
