New pictures of the LG Optimus G Nexus leak, plus specs and a camera sample
posted by Daniel P. / Oct 10, 2012, 2:02 AM
An XDA-Devs member leaked the pictures below, and also spelled out the specifications, confirming what we know so far, and, unfortunately, the fact that he didn't see a microSD card slot along with the device.
We say unfortunately, since he checked, and the device has just 8GB of internal memory, rocking it like your average midranger these days.
- CPU: core quad ARMv7 1.5GHz
- RAM: 2 GB
- Memory: 8GB (and I haven't found SD slot)
- GPU: Adreno 320
- Android version: JellyBeanMR1
- Kernel 3.4.0
- Screen: 768x1184 (320 dpi)
- Camera: 8 MP
Google apparently wants its Nexus stable to be more reliant on cloud storage than manufacturers themselves usually do, but let's see a launch announcement and pricing, and then we'll talk whether 8GB is decent or not, since it might have just wanted to keep the device affordable.
A NenaMark 2 bench appeared as well, confirming the HD+ screen resolution, and the powerful Adreno 320 GPU, so we can sleep tight knowing that we are covered in high specs comfort with the Optimus G Nexus.
There was also a camera sample, which is just someone's ball of spaghetti, but reveals the camera capabilities for the first time since we tested the 13MP module in our hands-on with the Optimus G, which is the bigger brother of the 8MP one in the LG Nexus.
Google Nexus 4 OS: Android 5.1 Lollipop, 5.0 Lollipop, 4.4.4, 4.4.3, 4.4.2, 4.4, 4.3, 4.2.2, 4.2.1, 4.2 View Full specs
- Display 4.7" 768 x 1280 pixels
- Camera 8 MP / 1.3 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro, Quad-core, 1500 MHz
- Storage 16 GB
- Battery 2100 mAh(15.3h talk time)

I won't complain much since its a google phone and has a really nice screen. But repeat after me LG "Put at least 16gb internal storage and micro sd slot. Cloud technology is overated."

yup. but I don't think it will be 8GB - maybe it was only for devs to cut the costs of production... or maybe... this is a $300 unlocked phone to go on fire like the Nexus 7? btw, I don't like relying on the cloud either. I prefer card slots and yes, at least 16GB.

I would never get a phone with 8GB of storage unless there is a microSD card slot. If they decide NOT to include the microSD card slot then a MINIMUM of 32GB of storage is needed. I firmly believe this is just a prototype & 8GB was included. This WILL never see the light of day. If Google decides to shove cloud based storage down our throats then it will be one of the biggest FAILS in recent times. Cloud is not for everyone & Google I think is smart enough not to do something so crazy. Why is there talk of a 32GB Nexus 7? Point made I think. lol

I use kloud storage (my letter "see" key is stuk, forgive me.) for pretty mutsh everything these days. However, I dont want to be forsed to either. My dox, most of my musik (i keep some on the devise just in kase.) Hell, even my pix auto bak up to G+. All that said, I'd still like to see at LEAST 16 on there. having low memory is not an exkuse to make it sheaper. Your talking the differense of a few pennies at ekonomies of skale, nothing that is going to make any big differense in the final kost. Frikkin "see" key,... ugh..literally just stopped working... grrrrr...

If this thing is cheap! and cloud storage is good enough to use! then you can believe i will be lookin at it LOL :) With all those MONSTER SPECS you're gonna not wanna get it cuz of low memory?? like i said if cloud storage is convenient enough to use then it should be excuseable......but also lets look for what other nexuses are available from sony, htc, and others before getting tied up to this one........things are getting better and better :)

8GB internal memory only?!? Oh man that would be pretty outrageous, no matter how much this thing will cost

either google is really pushing cloud storage, or they're trying to make a very great smartphone at a very low price (like nexus 7)

Well they better make a lesser affordable option available to consumers... As the iPhone 5 has proven, the cost of the phone won't matter as much if you create something people truly desire. I imagine a number of people would gladly plunk down cash on a higher GB model without issue. If 8GB is all we get I know they've lost me as a consumer, which is a shame since I love my Galaxy Nexus...

If this is true then Google needs to wisen up fast and see the lessons learned by htc and sony this year,people WANT memory card slots. Both htc and sony have admitted leaving them out was a bad move and their very newest models just about to be released are now featuring memory card slots. 8gb internal memory only will see this phone passed on as people will choose other top androids

I have to be honest aswell, It looks to much like the galaxy nexus and I will not be purchasing if it does. I love the Galaxy Nexus design but when I upgrade I want to feel like I have a new phone. This is why i always bashed iphone for the 4 to the 4s.

guys if they can sell an 8GB one for the average consumer at lets say 300 off contract and free on contract It would be a HIT they will have a 16GB version and possibly a 32GB version too so calm down
