  • Possible Nexus 5 (LG-D820) passes Wi-Fi certification with gigabit support

Possible Nexus 5 (LG-D820) passes Wi-Fi certification with gigabit support

Possible Nexus 5 (LG-D820) passes Wi-Fi certification with gigabit support
The evidence has mostly pointed towards LG model D820, and likely D821 as well, as being what we are generally calling the Nexus 5. There was a bit of skepticism on that front for a short time, but overall the consensus says that those models are the next Nexus handsets. We've seen those models pass through the FCC, and now two different models of the D820 have passed Wi-Fi certification.

The two models listed are the LG-D820_S and LG-D820_C. Unfortunately, it is impossible to tell the difference between the two models based on these certification results. The D820 is likely the GSM model, whereas the D821 is the CDMA variant; so, it could be that the D820_S and D820_C differ slightly in supported GSM bands or LTE bands. We can't say for sure. 

However, that doesn't mean this certification filing brings no good news. The certification does confirm that the devices support 802.11ac, which means theoretical gigabit speeds. It would also make this the first Nexus device to support the new Wi-Fi standard.

It will have a CDMA variant, so Verizon will get that.

In asia pricing is really matter as we have to buy full uncontract price and + vat 7 percent . Google should make fair pricing like nexus 4.

Anyone else think this line of phones looks ugly? Never saw anything attractive about this phone beyond the on time updates

On time updates, good specs, and cheap off contract price is way more attractive than any design in my opinion. The N4 was a good looking phone. But the leaks of this one haven't exactly shown a stunning design I agree

i guess but off contract will never appeal to me, specs are the same nowadays on every phone just depends who changes it up for the best combo. I think most phones look good but these phones feels uninspired

@Michael, the D820 has all chances to be the Nexus 5, but the D821 seems to be a CDMA version of the LG G2, please correct that...

In the FCC the D820 has: 5" screen, 68.2mm wide, 131.9 mm tall and Key Lemo Pie.
While the D821 has 5.2" screen, 70.9x138.5 mm and Jelly Bean 4.2.
