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...

I agree as well I will buy the next nexus small tablet if they keep the same dimensions or increased by a very small amount while trimming the bezel. Similar to the Motorola droid RAZR to the RAZR hd, maybe even make it edge to edge.

If this is true, Google has intention to make more tegra chips exclusive apps to ease the developers, in order to attract more apps developer and surpass the ios...

How does Google control Nvidia to make more tegra chips exclusive apps???? I mean WTF?

Its the developers - not Google - who specifically design Nvidia Tegra optimised apps, etc... It has nothing to do with Google, or Nvidia for that matter.

IMO, in any case, I've not seen any major improvement in Tegra optimised games vs Exynos or even Snapdragon anyway, so who really cares what CPU goes into it - so long as its an 8 core Exynos 5 series :p

I don't see how lg did such a good job with their first Nexus phone. With a throttled processor, mediocre camera, ridiculous amount of storage 4 a phone that doesn't have a sd card, Non removable battery. & above all else, The bs strategy of limiting production, so that even if your willing to wait a unheard of amount of time, to buy 1, it's still not available. I don't care if they sell it for a dollar. If you can't actually buy the phone, WTF is the point.

All designed decisions are Google's, not LG's.

I really hope not. I wasn't a fan of the Nexus 4. Wasn't satisfied with LG making it either. I'm ready for another HTC or Motorola Nexus or one with just the Google name on it being manufactured by Motorola Mobility. Plus I want LTE cause I love my Verizon.

well we will see if you can have ALL of that... and, a low price tag... cuz the no lte thing was a marketing strategy to allow google to get it out at such a low cost.....but somehow people REFUSE to see it that way, all they know is "it doesnt have lte" ..(whiny voice implied)

Where is LG Nexus 4?
Or is it that LG Nexus 4 was an "Organized Failure" (on purpose)

my thouhts exactlly, I was just about to write that, mb nexus 4 was a test by google to see how well will it sell because LG doesn't have a great reputation on these geek sites, but LG is really good now, I own LG optimus back, and my sister owns LG optimus L9, OB is decent, but L9 is great so imo this is what happened, LG is getting better and better and google sees that

Yes but what can one expect from LG if they hope/target to sell "just" 70 million odd devices all combined for entire year in 2013. I see a repeat of Nexus 4 for 5 also if LG is the one doing it.

I wish they would just add a SD slot to a nexus device.
Dream Nexus Phone
Sony Xperia Z(Water/Dust Proof, MicroSD Slot, 16GB Builtin, Small Bezel, Thin, HighEnd Specs)
5in Super HD AMOLED Plus Screen

Its nice to have dreams :-)

Exceedingly unlikely.

LG royally messed up with the Nexus 4. They couldn't produce fast enough to satisfy demand. Last I checked, it's been sold out for over a month and a half.

It would take an entirely new brand of insanity to bring them back for not one, but two new devices.
