Two new Nexus devices called the Nexus 5 and Nexus 7.7 are rumored to be in the works. The information comes from a Korean forum called Ruliweb, which also mentions that LG is in charge of producing the smartphone and tablet. Both devices are purportedly being readied to be unveiled during the Google I/O event scheduled in May later this year.
Purported specifications of the devices are also available, although their accuracy is doubtful, as with other leaked lists.
The LG Nexus 5 is said to pack a 5-inch display, as its name implies. This screen, like most other smartphones targeted at the high-end segment this year, might with a Full HD resolution with 1920 x 1080 pixels and a pixel density of 440 pixels per inch. Inside, it may run on the NVIDIA Tegra 4 processor. 2GB of RAM are also expected, as well as a choice between 8 or 16GB of storage capacity. In the imaging department, the camera may sport a 13-megapixel rear-facing main camera with LED flash and autofocus capabilities. This would be complemented by a 3-megapixel front-facing secondary camera. The leak also suggests that the 8GB model of the Nexus 5 will be priced at $299. It would be noted that this is the same price for the 8GB Nexus 4 on the Google Play Store. For its design, the smartphone is believed to come with a bezel measuring only 1 millimeter.
On the other hand, the Nexus 7.7 comes with a 7.7-inch display, of course. The screen is said to be a WUXGA display with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels and a pixel density of 294 PPI. Under the hood, it supposedly sports an NVIDIA Tegra 4 processor working with 2GB of RAM. Also onboard is 8 or 16GB of internal storage. Front- and rear-facing cameras with 720p HD resolution may also be available. Like the Nexus 5, the Nexus 7.7 is also expected to have a 1 millimeter bezel.
Both devices, as Android Authority surmises, could run Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, the next OS version of Android after the current Jelly Bean.
