LG Optimus G Nexus allegedly packs Android 4.2, to be released in November


The LG Optimus G Nexus is said to be yet another another Nexus device that will be announced along with Android 4.2 this November along with the rumored Galaxy Nexus 2 and possibly the Nexus 7 32GB. The device has been tested by a source that has access to it, without being a Google employee. According to Android and Me’s source the Optimus G Nexus features silver ring around the outer edge of the screen which seemed to be similar to the Galaxy Nexus in size but was much better in brightness and also has Nexus logo written on the back like the Nexus 7 except there is a color element to it. The ‘X’ is in four colors. There was also the LG logo on the back.

The source also claimed that Android 4.2 appears to be a minor revamped version of Jelly Bean with few performance enhancements under the hood, mainly UI improvements focused around fluidity from exiting apps, switching, etc.

Rumors are circulating the web that Google will introduce Android 4.2 (likely Key Lime Pie) this November at an event where they will also announce new Nexus devices, among them the LG Optimus G. The devices features a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro Processor with a 1.5GHz Quad-Core CPU, a 4.7-inch display, 2GB of RAM, a 13MP rear camera and 1.3MP front camera. Interestingly Google is also changing the Nexus program so that any flagship smartphone maker can release smartphones as part of the program as long as they adhere to strict standards.

Android 4.2 may well be just an incremental update or it could possibly be the long rumored Android Key Lime Pie.
