Nexus 5 revealed in LG G2, if history repeats

By Peter Chubb - Aug 7, 2013

The launch of the LG G2 today showed that the company still has what it takes and can outmatch some of the big players in terms of specs. The new G2 flagship handset not only looks nice, but comes with some amazing new features, such as more horsepower in the processor department, and a large battery to keep you going a little longer.

On paper the G2 beats the Galaxy S4, the HTC One and unsurprisingly the Moto X, which you can see for yourself in this specs comparison. This does bode well for the Nexus 5, because if history was to repeat itself then the LG G2 could become the Nexus 5.

Nexus 5 revealed in LG G2 unveil – Back when the LG Optimus G was launched little did we now that it would be the cousin to the Nexus 4, and they certainly had a lot in common.

Stark Insider says this could mean if history repeats itself then the new G2 has a good chance of showing us just what to expect with the Nexus 5.

Does this mean that the Nexus 5 specs have been confirmed by LG? If this is to be the case, then the Nexus 5 will be a powerhouse of a smartphone, and add to that the possibility of running Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie we could have a handset that could cause serious issues to Galaxy S4 sales, although Samsung has had a hard time of late anyway.

Do you think the LG G2 will become the Nexus 5?

    I can’t imagine Google working with anyone else for this years Nexus than LG. What little evidence we have had thus far regarding this years Nexus has floated around LG. Google and the chosen OEM for the next Nexus otherwise have done incredible work to keep anything official about the next Nexus leak out.

    I think a Nexus 5 G2 clone would kill business for LG just when they’re trying to make a name for themselves in the smartphone business by releasing a powerhouse model.

        NO, he didn’t because LG did the same thing last year with the LG Optimus G, which was the fraternal twin of the Nexus 4 (same CPU, battery, RAM, GPU, screen, internal specs). LG will do the same this year. Samsung did the Nexus phone two years in a row and it HELPED Samsung’s reputation.

      Doing the Nexus 4 last year didn’t kill business for LG. Samsung did the Nexus phone two years in a row and it HELPED Samsung’s reputation as a top tier Android manufacturer.
