LG Nexus 5 and Nexus 7.7 rumors commence: higher-resolution screens, Google I/O announcement
LG and Google haven't even managed to ensure enough supply of the Nexus 4 Android poster child, and rumors about the next generation already started leaking from Korean forums.
This should tell you that the next Nexus 5 is again claimed to be an LG affair, but come with a 5" Full HD screen (surprise, surprise), the new NVIDIA Tegra 4, 2 GB of RAM, 13 MP camera, as well as 3 MP front-facer, and 8 or 16 GB of storage. The price for the 8 GB versions is said to start off at $299, like the current edition.
Not only that, but the rumor mill spat out the next Google tablet, informing us that it might be a Nexus 7.7 this time, with a higher 1920x1200 resolution (294ppi), Tegra 4 again, 8 GB of starting storage, as well as front and rear HD cameras. Interestingly enough, the manufacturer mentioned here is again LG, whereas it was Asus doing the Nexus tablet gear for 2012. LG demonstrated a 7-incher with this resolution at CES last week, so this Nexus tablet is certainly plausible.
After all, at CES LG's Senior Vice President James Fisher said: "Through our collaboration with Google, we launched the LG Nexus 4 smartphone. This is the first of many devices to come from our growing partnership with this very selective company."
Two rumors that are not hard to believe at all, given the 2013 hardware trends, and the source claims these will be announced at the Google I/O conference in mid-May, alongside the next Key Lime Pie Android 5 version that is expected there too.
